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

The first layout I'd like to share with you today is my mixed media mayhem layout as I call it.  I had lots of fun with this, I just played with wild abandon!  All those coll white drips and splotches were done with an Art Anthology mask that came in the mediums add on; I love this mask!!    I also love the chicken wire that came in the embellishments kit!  You know chicken wire is a swirlygals staple!  The small gray flowers are from the flower add on and the others are from my stash as are the metal embellies you see.  At the top you see some mesh, that is in the main kit and its a really fun thing to use on this kind of layout!

Chicken wire from the embellie kit, orange flowers and metal leaves from my stash, gray flowers from the flower add on.

Under the title is a small kraft  tag that came in the main kit!

This is the layout that I did with this month's sketch and it's also the Anatomy layout.  Be sure to check out my build a page tutorial in the Anatomy of a layout forum.

I really love Petaloo's Botanica line of flowers and these gray ones came in the main kit!  I diecut the blue roses and hand rolled them.  The die I used is from La La Land crafts.

I love this photo of my Mom and my great nephew, its such a great photo of both of them.  I painted the background paper with watered down white gesso to dull the color a bit.  The chipboard pieces came in the Embellie kit and I cut them up to better fit my layout.  I did some random stamping around the edges with stamps from my stash and the title chippy is also from my stash.  I heat embossed all the chippies with Stampendous aged white embossing enamel.

The flower add on has some giant flowers from David Tutero so I wanted to do something that really showed off these gorgeous blooms!  This is a round box that I got at Hobby Lobby, it's about 9" tall and 13" in circumference.  I covered the box with paper and added a bit of masking just to give it a shabby appearance.  Then I added some of the bling around the lid and used some of the dangling beads that came in the main kit to embellish.  I added a few silk leaves from my stash, and BAM!  All done, this was a really quick fun project!
