Swirlydoos 2nd Reveal, Purple Haze Kit

Happy Monday, friends! I'm here today to share my pages I made using the Swirlydoos Kit Club April 2016 Collection, Purple Haze. Gotta love the name! The pattern paper mostly consist of  new Blue Fern Studios. They're so pretty...perfect for spring!  I was able to get four pages done all in different colors. I thought that kinda cool! :)

For my first page I went with a purple color scheme....because ya know, I love Purple!  I did lots of layering and wet distressing.  I used some flowers from the March Flower Add-on. This is the example for the All That Flutters Challenge. You can find it HERE.

 For this page I did some more layering this time with punches and more wet distressing. I love the look of wet distressing and it's fun to do. If you can bring yourself to wet your paper A LOT! :) 

Usually in my creating process I have a photo inspire me first, then the paper and lastly the embellishments.  This time around it was the paper. Yellow and green aren't colors that I work but I thought I'd give it a shot. The colors from the paper really inspired me and I loved the flowers from the Flower Add-on.

This month I will be doing the Anatomy of A Layout. Except it's not a layout at all but an Off The Page Project. Using items only in the main kit I created this altered embroidery hoop. You can find the tutorial on Snapguide.

 This is my take on the sketch. I first started with doing a punched background. And then just layered and distressed from there. For the top paper, I first did some wet distressing. Then added a clear coat of gesso before adding all my mediums. To give a soft water color look I sprayed the paper with water them added mist and paints. You can find the butterflies at my store, LittleScrapShop on Etsy.

I'll be back on April 25th to reveal the rest of my projects using the April Collection. Hope you'll come back to take a peek and get inspired!
