Welcome to Swirlydoos' April Kit Reveal Blog Hop Block Party!!

***Hello Beautiful***

If you came here from Miranda's blog, then you are on the right track. If not, go back to Swirlydoos' blog and start from there. We have some amazing projects for you to see today !! Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win!!! Check out Swirlydoos on Facebook and Like Us!!!

My first project I'd like to share with you, is also this month's Anatomy page.
I did a step by step photo tutorial on it, which can be found HERE
16 weeks
This page has a "Fold Open" element on it. 
 Here it is opened up. I left the inside blanc, for my daughter to journal.
 On the top I added randomly, some acrylic paint using a spatula. I also added some masking to give it more interest.
I cut out the doily from Prima, Lyric Buttons, packaging and added the Kaisercraft pearls.
 I painted that gorgeous Blue Fern Chipboard piece with Distress Stain in Antique Linen and pounched some Pearlex bright gold powder on it.
The Prima  wood flower embellishment was painted with acrylic paint and adorned with a Kaisercraft pearl.
 here you see some Prima Lace flowers and wood embellishments, which were painted using Distress Paint (Bundled Sage) and sprayed with Olive Vine Glimmer Mist.
 This doily is also from Prima, Lyric Buttons, packaging and again, adorned with Kaisercraft pearls.
The rubon border at the bottom is from Kaisercraft and the lace trim is by Petaloo.
The black stickers are by SRM-Stickers.
And some more Prima Lace flowers, Lyric Button, and wood Embellishments.
All products used on this page came in the Swirlydoos Main Kit.
Except of course, the paints and mists I used.
 I have 2 more cards to share with you today.
 For my sentiment spot I used another SRM sticker which came in the Main Kit.
I sprayed it with some vintage brown/gold and added a Kaisercraft rubon (from my stash)
Also the 2 border stickers are by SRM, and as you can see, they hold very well on fabric too.
The lace and twill ribbon are by Petaloo.
  I added a butterfly rubon and some pearls (both by Kaisercraft)
 Another awesome Prima Lace flower and their wood embellishments.
And my last card.
 These wings and ornamental plate, can be found on 1 of the papers in the Main Kit.
I just cut it out and traced the lines using Puffy Paint.
I added some tiny ball chain on the left side, underneath the wing.
The lace - pearls - trim and stickers all came in the Main Kit.
 The silver rhinestone looking trim, and flowers came from my stash.
I hope you liked the projects I made, with this super gorgeous kit.
