Just take a look at this beautiful kit
 
And the AddOn kits
 
 
This kit is sooooo Colorful!!!!
And packed with awesome goodies!!! Loved it!
So, On to my projects...
I haven't had much time to play, because my kit, well let's say.....
It took a journey on it's own, and came in way later than it normally does.
But here's what I came up with.
 
Seeking for......
 
 and some close ups
I didn't want to cover up this beautiful Prima Firefly paper, with lots of layers of other papers,
so I kept it very basic here. I just run with glossy accents over some areas (drips in the paper)
to high light them and on other spots I used Iridescent Medium by Windsor and Newton.
I used Ranger's Multi Medium to add the gauze bandage to my background.

These beautiful beads came in an earlier Swirlydoos kit and I used some Beacon's 3in1 Craft Glue
to adhere them to my photo. Gave it also a stitch down, with the silver thread, on which I glued iridescent beads.
These Gorgeous Prima flowers came in the Main Kit. Also this Prima Resin corner came in the Main Kit. On the flowers I dabbed a little Iridescent medium, so gave it that extra shimmer.
Those white leaves are made from paper-cording which I got
from my dear friend IngridG. (Thank you sweetie!!!)
On the upper right corner I used a Crafters Workshop stencil and some Molding Paste that came in a previous Swirlydoos Technique Kit. When the molding paste was dry I gently dabbed some iridescent medium on it.
There were a bunch of Prima journaling cards in the Main Kit. I didn't journal on my card, but added my title on it. The journaling is hidden underneath . It is about me, (obvious) searching for answers.
As some of you know, I was in an accident 2 weeks ago, and was badly hurt. I can not remember anything of it, as I woke up in the hospital. I won't go into further details, but that is where my journaling is about!
 
Okay.... some cards!!!

All Occasion card...
I used on of the Prima Note Cards that came in the Main Kit and I didn't dress it up much, cause it is so  PRETTY of it's own.
 

Just for You...
On this card I use the gorgeous Prima Resin windows, that came in the Main Kit.
I added some foam adhesive to the sides of the window-shields to gave it some depth.
The packaging that comes with the Resins is just so gorgeous and I wanted it to use on this card and stamp my sentiment in the middle.
 
Thinking of you...







Nothing but paper layers here. Well except the masking/misting in the upper right corner. LOL
I cut one of the Prima Note Cards to fit and stamped my sentiment on it
Those amazing gems came in the Main Kit.
