Swirlydoos 2nd Reveal, Hello Beautiful

Happy Sunday everyone! Today I'm sharing my last two projects using Swirlydoos April Kit, Hello Beautiful. First up is a canvas using the Project Kit. I loved how the canvas is totally sturdy! I treated it with a couple of  layers of gesso and let dry. In the meantime, I was trying to figure out what I was going to do with it. While going through all the goodies from the kits, I came across the Prima tray. Remembering Miranda video tutorial (you can find that HERE)I thought it a good idea to use it. So, I painted and glue it on the canvas. That's when I started to add all the bits in bobs in the nooks. From there it took a life of it's own. I just kept adding and adding until the canvas was filled. After, I painted everything with the gesso. About three coats. Once it was finally dried I went in with Glimmermist. There you have it!!
 Here are some close-ups

 For my second project I made an easel card. I just had to fussy cut the cute little fairy from the Prima paper. I was going to make a scrapbook page, but I though this little beauty needed to be the center of attention. :)
Thank you for taking the time to visit!!
Until my next post...

I am loving the Blue Fern Studios Chippies!!! Krissy did a special order for us and I had to have that frame!! I just treated it with some gesso, cream paint and glitter. The butterflies are something that I digitally created and you can find them at my Etsy Shop.
This is my oldest daughter. She had her 15th b-day in March. She's a sweetheart but sometimes the teenage attitude runs rampant and I have to check! The butterflies are from my Etsy Shop.
 My Boy
This page was made using the monthly sketch. I wanted to go with a masculine feel with no! I love going the grunge style. You get to muck things up and it looks perfect! This is my son, he just turned nine. We've grown out his mo hawk for the "Superman" do...hehee! He wanted a Frank Rock Style(he LOVES legos) but his hair wouldn't stay.
