Layout: Mud Spa!

I have been receiving kits from the Swirlydoo's Kit club for quite a few months now, but to date haven't done much more then play with some of the technique kits.

Following my amazing week that included 2 Tim Holtz workshops, I was inspired to get crafty.  And more I have decided to stop hoarding and start using.  So, I grabbed my last kit, the May 'So Chic' kit.

This kit was choc full of goodness including GDC papers - Botanique collection, great Prima flowers, lace and lots of other goodies.

Each kit also includes a page I set about using the page map as inspiration and I jumped in.  I have a bunch of photos of our girls ( Ebony and Amber) from a trip to the Dog park back in April...went photo mad.  A few weeks back I used one of the photos to make an of the page canvas of Ebony (looked awesome - you can scroll down if you want to see it in an earlier post).  So any way that meant it was Ambers turn for some attention.

I tried not to think to much and just go with it.

I used one of the papers (Grandma's Pearls) in the kit for the background, mounted on Kraft (Bassill), I also used some Lindys spray (Mission Bells Brown) on bubble wrap to kind simulate mud splatters, you can just see them in the background.

I have included a close up of the flourishs, I inked them with TH Walnut stain, then spritzed with Lindy's  Mission Bells Brown, then dabbed on some Wisteria Purple Blue.  
I am tryng to include flowers and butterfly's in my work, and there is no better inspiration then Swirlydoos blog for that...

This awesome butterfly was one I got from LittleScrapShop - Angelica has a fabulous range of butterfly's just waiting to be used in layouts or on cards.

I thought this one was just the right touch to finish my layout.
