Scrapping With I did Creations Swirls and Flourishes

This week the challenge over at Scrapping with I Did It Creations is to create a Scrapbook Page or Layout (sorry this challenge does not include cards) incorporating the theme of Flourishes and Swirls.

The DT were given the gorgeous Cafe Creme papers that are availailable from the I Did It shop here for only $2. I loved the brown paper as it's my favourite colour and as soon as I saw these papers I knew just the photograph to use with them!

I kept the page fairly simple and used a peice of Cafe Creme paper in the background. I cut out some elements of other sheets to make embellishments, the bottom right corner is 2 layers of a piece of a pattern, the top layer has been covered in glossy accents and ounted on the underlying layer with foam pads. I cut several butterflies out of another sheet, 2 of them I stuck together to make a double winged butterfly and this is attached to the chipboard flourish (from my stash), The other 2 butterflies are covered in glossy accents and they are sitting next to the swirl at the top. The swirl was created using a plastic mask and glossy accents... a little messy and it went slightly wrong when DD put the lid to some brads she was using on top of the drying gloss so I had to do an urgent repair job... I think I got away with it!!!

Please go on over to the blog here to see the other examples created by the DT this week and the challenge has been sponsored by Pear Tree Designs who will be supplying the prize. They have some amazing digi images with prices starting from just £1!

I look forward to seeing your entries, 'you have to be in it to win it' as they say!!
