Welcome to the Swirlydoos March Kit Reveal Blog Hop Block Party! This kit, named "French Quarter", features the gorgeous Glitz Design "French Kiss"collection combined with a wealth of incredible flowers, embellishments and specialty papers.
If you came here from Angelica'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 and as a bonus we have 2 manufacturer blogs that are joining in the fun and a 3rd manufacturer offering a prize! There are 4 prize packs up for grabs so make sure to follow along and have fun!
My first layout, "No. 1" is of my first born. I used the gorgeous March kit sketch and tried something different - no doilies or distressing! The black mat is actually a piece of black velvet from the kit. I added some Dusty Attic clock chipboard from my stash. The large Prima flower is in the main kit, the smaller ones are in the add-on.
Here is a close-up of the gorgeous flowers and the finish on my chipboard (black ink and dry brushed copper acrylic paint on top).
Here is the AMAZING kit sketch - my favorite one from all that I've seen from Swirlydoos to date!
For my second layout, "C'est tres Magnifique", this is my daughter wearing daddy's hat. I used the Swirlyhues challenge as my inspiration. Again, added a Dusty Attic piece from my stash and the greenery vine was left over from my February kit (cut it in half to use on here).
Here is a close up of the beautiful Petaloo flowers from the add-on kit.
Here is the Swirlyhues sketch and color palette.
For my last layout, "tender", this is me 7 months pregnant with my daughter and the boys are "waiting for something good to happen" (as in the text printed on this paper). I used the Dusty Attic sketch and a DA piece from my stash (brown ink and dry brushed with bronze acrylic paint on top) and finished it all off by cutting up the Prima vine to surround it. Kinda reminds me of a momma bird in a nest with her babies, LOL.
I fussy cut one of the Glitz cardstock pieces in the main kit.
Here is the beautiful Dusty Attic sketch I used as inspiration.
