I made this page by fussy cutting one piece of paper and laying it on top of another. The embellishment add-on had this gorgeous foil paper that I just had to use. I was inspired by the paper dresses I saw in all of the pictures from CHA and decided to make a paper doll. She is pretty simple when you compare her to the CHA mannequins, but hey, I'm just getting started! LOL
I Googled drawings of can-can dancers and after what seemed to be 100 pages, I came across a drawing that I really like. I printed it out and then used a piece of vellum, because I didn't have any tracing paper, and I traced the entire drawing. Then I cut the pieces out and used them as a pattern. Then, using the coordinating card stock and patterned paper from the kit, I cut out all of the pieces. I used a verse stamp on her head, chest and arms.
Sketch Inspiration is a sketch blog and they are working with the DT at Swirlydoos this month. They gave us a sketch and asked us to work with it. This is my take on the sketch. I turned it over on its side. The photo was taken a few years back while we were on vacation in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. I painted a butterfly on my DD's face. I used a Florabella action in Photoshop on my photo. Everything is from this month's kit. I used a version of an Emerging Color technique on the strip going across the top. I used a Spellbinder's die and the Smooch spray from out kit to make the butterflies and to mist my page in a few places. The sketch called for a rectangular object. I decided to make an envelope instead.
This is my take on the Swirlydoos Sketch that came with our kit. I flipped it and kind of dismantled it. It is a beautiful sketch, but it took on a life of its own. Everything except the UTEE is from this month's kit. I made a heart shape using UTEE and a butterfly that Lisa G. made available for the kit. I also made a mold of a frame corner I have and then poured bronze UTEE into it. That is how I made the photo corner. The edge of the page has been slightly cut off, but you can see a close up of the photo corner below.
