October Swirlydoos***Lavender Escape***

This stunning kit with my favorite colors *** purple/black*** combo has been sitting and waiting for me to finish up my Spooky blog haunt projects. Now that those are done and waiting to be posted for the 15th I have started in on this beautiful kit!
This is my first layout for the Swirlydoos sketch challenge using Beggahunas sketch for this month.

I misted the purple cardstock with smooch. Fussy cut some of the Websters papers in the kit to create my design. I used the smooch on the pink paislee pieces just to give them a little detail. The black bow is some netting that was in the kit.

I took some inspiration from Irene Tan (Scrapperlicious) and die cut a piece of acrylic to make the flower. I then colored it with alcohol ink and heated it with my heat gun so the edges would curl. I added a prima bloom to the center of it.

We received a beautiful ZVA CREATIVE flourish in our kit. But it was working as it stood with this layout and I really wanted to use it on here so I cut it apart.
The only thing missing from the original piece is the butterfly and I will use that on another layout!!!!
I'm always trying to think outside the box and use things in a way I think others won't. Hope this inspires you to give some of these things a try!
