Good morning! This month in the forums at the Flying Unicorn, Tammy is hosting a "swirls and twirls" challenge. The requirement is to use at least three different types of swirls- aka flourishes- on your project. Here's a list to name a few: bling, stamped, masked, chippy, doodled, and diecut. For my layout there are flourishes on my Dusty Attic chipboard frame, my Cheery Lynn diecuts, and the small flourishes I made using wire and lavender beads.
I used Prima's "Sweet Fairy" collection for this layout. One more collection used that I've been hoarding- yay! I've done some stamping, inking, embossing, and used a few Martha Stewart border punches.
For the DA frame, I sprayed it with "popcicle" by Tattered Angels. Experimenting, I used a mask and gesso to add a little interest. Then inked a few of the edges with Stazon black. I then dabbed a bit of Lavender Stickles to dress it up so it didn't seem too grungy. Then to finish it out, I smoothed on a thin layer of Crackle Effects with my finger. The thin layer gave it just a subtle crackle that I wanted.
Thanks so much for dropping in and letting me share this layout with you. I hope you have a terrific day!
