Please go HERE to see the complete post on the Swirlydoos October Kit Club Reveal!!

This project was made for Swirlydoos' October Kit Reveal.  
To see more about the reveal, go here.

A sketch by Beggahuna, is always included in a Swirlydoos kit, and this layout is my interpretation of this month's sketch.

The collage below shows how I picked the background paper, distressed the top layer in places where I wanted the background to show through, cut a hole to save some of that beautiful pink paper for other projects, and finished by gluing the top layer over the background.  We have a couple tutorials on the Swirlydoos forum that teach you how to deep distress here and here.

This is a close up of the texture I created using Prima's "Netting" stencil and glass bead gel.  This stencil was included in the Mediums Add On, and I really love the effect you get with it.

I misted the stenciling with LSG "Cosmopolitan Pink" Starburst mist, and then painted here and there with Art Anthology "Cotton Candy" dimensional paint.  I also used the "Cosmopolitan Pink" to paint here and there on the sweet little wooden bow and birdcage embellishments that are included in the kit. 

Below is a close up of how I altered the stunning Blue Fern "Jeweled Frame" that can be found in the "Embellishment" Add On.  I painted it with the Prima black Chalk Paint from the Mediums Add On, and then glued Prima "Plum" glass beads here and there, so it dripped with yumminess.  (And yes... you guessed it... the glass beads are ALSO included in the kit!)

And finally, a close up of the flower cluster I created with tiny flowers from the Flower 
Add On, and more beautiful pieces, such as the black ribbon, the delicate butterfly note card,the large rose, and the beautiful stick pins.  (I painted the butterfly note card with some more of the "Cosmopolitan Pink" mist to tie it into the rest of the layout, and also trimmed it down to fit into the scale of the sketch.)
