Hi! I am back with a few flowers I made for challenges at Swirlydoo's Swirl Pa Looza! I am having a lot of fun. Anyway, the first one is a Jewelled Cloisonne Flower . Not sure I like the crackle accents. I think I should have modge podged it for a glossy look. It was hard to get a picture of these because they are so shiny.

The next flower is a Peony. You make it using six scalloped hearts and two scalloped circles. I think I will be making more of these!

Thanks for stopping by!

Canvas Tag

I am having a lot of fun over at Swirlydoo's online crop. They are definitely pushing me beyond my limits. I am going to show you the canvas tag I just finished. I used Gesso, pages from a word search magazine, a toilet paper roll, distressed stain, archival ink, and cardboard from a box. I am very pleased with the results. This crop is going on all weekend. You should come and join in the fun!

Well here ya go:

Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully, I can finish a few more challenges and have more to show you!

Still in Love with Graphic 45

 The layout I am sharing today is made with Graphic 45's Curtain Call collection. I tried using the graphics from this collection. I normally use the opposite side of the papers, so you tell me if I pulled it off.. I also used the Donna Salazar Rose dies again. This time I did not cut them apart. Not sure I like this type of flower, but I wasn't going to waste paper, so I used them. I really prefer the other ones on the previous layout, but variety is the spice of life. Anyway, hope you enjoy my layout, and have a wonderful weekend!

A White Layout

I'm back with another layout. This time I have an all white layout to show you. I started this in an online crop over at Flying Unicorn, but I knew I wouldn't have time to finish it. So I decided to work on it here and there. It is a picture of my grandaughter after she was born. I have scrapped this photo before, but this layout is for my son. I plan on filling up an album and giving it to him as a Christmas present. It will probably take all year to get it done. There is lots of punching on this layout. I used all Martha Stewart punches. The leaves were cut using the foliage nestabilities set. I then used my dotted cuttlebug folder to add some texture. The flowers were made using the Donna Salazar nestabilities rose set. I created my own version of her flower. I had to cut all the petals apart and then put them together to create these roses. I had a lot of fun making this layout and hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
