This is my first month as part of the Swirlydoos Design Team and what a way to start! The Indigo Dream Kit and Add-Ons are packed full of gorgeous colors, elegant embellishments (with a bit of fun thrown in!) and the opportunities to create several OTP projects.
I started with the sketch (did you know that every Swirlydoos Kit comes with an original sketch created by Swirlydoos Designer Kim Heard?), the Entwined sheet from Scrapberry's Primavera collection and this wonderful photo of my daughter-in-law and granddaughter from a few years ago.
Here is the sketch.
And my layout...
And a few closeups...
I'm now hosting the All That Flutters Challenge - a monthly chance to show off some of your collection of butterflies, dragonflies, bees, ladybugs, birds, fairies and anything else that well, flutters!
Here is the layout that I created as an example, using the amazing chippie that came in the Main Kit and a bird that I made with air-dry clay.
This next layout was actually built around this amazing peacock feather that's part of the main kit. I used the Pearl Texture Luxe and a Prima stencil to create a bit of interest in the background and a few chipboard feathers from my stash; the rest of the embellishments are all from the Main Kit and Flower and Embellishment Add-Ons.
The Heidi Swapp Memory Files Kit and the Maggi Holmes flower clips from the Flower-Add On gave me a big moment of "aha"! I've been trying to come up with a system of keeping track of my projects - ideas, deadlines, photos - all of the "To Do" stuff that I'll need for the upcoming month and this was perfect.
I've added some wood alphas from my stash to the front and a calendar printed on cream cardstock; all of the rest of what you see is from the "Indigo Dream" Kit and Add-Ons.
The small album was adhered to make a handy place to keep notes and ideas. More notes on the opposite page all held with the pretty resin clips that were included in the Flower Add-On; turn the page for more notes and ideas...
And the last page; I've created some pockets to hold even more photos that I want to use as soon as the opportunity comes up.
And now for the Carousel from the Project Add-On Kit - I've colored it with Chalkboard paint and then used papers from the main kit and a few odds and ends from my stash to decorate it. Krissy included a string of LED lights, which I entwined around the center post. When lit, this is an amazing piece of home decor!
