monday......Swirlydoos October Kit Layout #2

It's the last week of October and also, my little cousin's birthday! Happy 11th birthday Joel!

Today I'm sharing another layout that I made with the Swirlydoos October Kit, Sweetest Thing.

This layout is based on this month's sketch. At first it was intimidating to use 3 pictures on a layout but after I started, this page came together easily!

Here's the sketch:
You can play along with us (you do NOT have to be a subscriber to play!) until Nov 15th!

Since the sketch itself asked for a lot of open space, I used layers and different embellies to add texture to my layout.

I added this sweet butterflies that matched perfectly with the peach/orange colors of the papers and embellies.

I also fuzzy cut the little bird on the banner and added two bird cages, which I inked and distressed and used  clear crackle paint.

Here are two more of those sweet butterflies.

I was having a particularly bad day this particular day that day these pictures were taken and the title and journaling are very meaningful to me.

Here's a close up of the whole embellie area. I colored the little topiary with the Silk paint from the kit and Smooch paint from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful week!
