Faith - Swirlydoos October Kit

I just started getting the kits at Swirlydoos and what a kit! For this layout I used items in the kit. What was added? My cream lace and the decoration on the flower.
I made the angel face with a polymer clay mold. After it was baked and cooled, I used Krylon gold spray paint and painted it. I also made the wings from those wonderful paperbark maple seeds that are flying around my neighborhood. I painted them with the gold paint. They also work great with glimmer mist as well. To further the artistic look of this layout, I printed the photos on watercolor paper. I altered the circle in PSE to sepia tone and a softer look.
Thanks for coming over and taking a look! Have a wonderful week!

Ad This

I am lucky enough to be the guest designer on Ad This, this week!
Here is my LO.
I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Patina on DCWV Spring Stack (2009). I used punched card stock flower shapes as the "mask". The ad that I was using was for Absolut Vodka and was Raspberry Pink with touches of bright yellow. I decided to go for a blue theme, instead. I loved all the shapes in the ad and used not only the flowers but some paisleys made of chip board from my stash. Hope you enjoy it and check out the Ad This Blog! http://adthis.blogspot.com/2009/09/august-14th-ad-guest-designer.html

Last Days of Summer

Back from vacation and celebrating the last days of summer. Tomorrow Preston starts third grade. Where does the time go? It seems like just yesterday we rolled him up in a blanket and rolled him across the bed to each other - oh wait, that was Clark Griswold. We are back from our Vacation and ready for the fall.

I have a lot of vacation photographs to be scrapping. My next project, however, is a mini for James and Noriko, who bought the house in Everett. They are a delightful young couple and "need" a mini of photos of the house being built. I am starting that project tonight.

The LO that I posted today is of Seaside OR. I designed the background patterned paper using PSE and royalty free clip art from Dover Publications. Following the design of the paper, I printed it at Craft Sassy. I love having the option of designing my own paper. I then hand cut the shape of the paper and mounted it on card stock. The rest of the design is completed with embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek! Have a great week!
