2nd Reveal With Swirlydoos Vineyard Kit

Hello everyone! I'm here today to share with you my second reveal projects using the January Kit, Vineyard. And a tutorial as promised showing you how to make the cracked glass vellum butterflies.

Here is the butterfly and the layout I used it on from 1st reveal! You can find the tutorial on Snapguide. I hope you give it a try!


I really loved this kit because it has really bright papers. I decided to use a bright green with a lighter pink. I used some chipboard from the Dusty Attic Special Order. A perk for being a subscriber!

 For my next project I made a reverse canvas for a shadow box effect. I used a Dusty Attic piece for the inside and layering upward with a Prima resin piece. On top of that I used the Creative Embellishment Chippy to have focus on the Prima piece.

We have some absolutely beautiful scrapbook projects for you to see today !! 

This kit is beautiful all around! It has the most vibrant colors and perfect embellishments to bring out those hues! For my first page I totally wanted to use the bright pink! I did some masking and just a bit of layering. I love those Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces. I painted them with gesso and just lightly misted them. That Valentine Sweetheart Die is now available at my Etsy Store.

 On the flip side of vibrant colors, I went more with the muted tones for this page. That's how diverse Swirlydoos Kits can be.  Not all your pages have to look them same or they can if you prefer it! Here I used the 7 dots paper and misted with teal for this awesome color combination. Keep eye out for a tutorial on the Cracked Glass Vellum Butterflies later on in the month.
 This is my take on the monthly sketch. I just flipped it on it's side.  I used the Prima doily mask from the Mediums Add-on. But, you can hardly see it because I have a bad habit of covering things up with embellies! :) I mixed some of the mica power (mediums add-on) with water to make the drips.  The Dragonflies, Full of Grace Dragonfly Embellishments, are my newest design I made for my shop.

 Here is the monthly sketch. Be sure to enter our sketch challenge HERE. Anyone can play!
