More Projects with the Swirlydoos Antiquities Kit

Hello! I have had such a great time playing with the Antiquities kit. The only thing that could make me stop creating with it was getting the next kit. I actually have a couple of other layouts in the works, but they will have to wait. So, here's what I came up with so far:

Family Matters Layout


These are my dear friend's beautiful children, and this layout is for her. I hope she likes it!
I started by punching the background paper with the Martha Stewart Cherish punch. I hand-stitched the inner holes and randomly placed beads from the Bling add-on kit. The circle was cut using the Cricut; I added terracotta pearls in different sizes. I hand cut the photo mat with a wavy motion and distressed and inked it. The flower cluster all came from the flower add-on kit. I tore apart the large blooms and arranged them in a different way. I placed the yellow flowers in the middle of the red ones on the vine. The die cut flourish with leaves is Cheery Lynn. The title is Prima and Kaisercraft.

One of a Kind layout


I did this layout for the Round Robin challenge at Swirlydoos. This picture is one of my favorites of my oldest. I have used it several times, and I'm sure it won't be my last. It's a classic, and goes soooo well with this kit. 
I used the Zutter Distress-it-All on all layers, and inked them with brown chalk ink afterward. The circle was traced with black Liquid Pearls, but it kind of looks like stitching. I treated the Fabscraps penny-farthing  with black and brown ink, then randomly used Walnut Stain Distress Stickles. The clock on the spokes is Tim Holtz. (Neither of those are in the kit.) I finished the layout by adding flower clusters to the corners. I used a memory box die for the outline leaves, and Spellbinders for the brown leaves. The ribbon is paper that I curled.

Thanks for looking!
