Family ~ Donna Salazar Designs ~ DT Swap

Hellooooo, How is everyone today?? I am back again with another DT Swap layout, this month I had to do Lisa's photo. What a gorgeous family! I hope you like it Lisa!

I got to play with Donna's new corrugated swirls and Swirls Stamp on this layout!
I have also used another one of Mistra's Wild Rose Flowers (Blue one) on this layout!
The orange flower here was created with paper towel and mix media stax. You can see the tutorial for this flower HERE!

Creating the Background:
The background swirls were created with the Swirls stamp. Start with white cardstock stamp the swirls with the jasmin mix'd media inx, overlapping in a diagonal pattern. emboss with clear embossing powder. Then using the denim and patina mix'd media inx refills I added a line of ink to the top and bottom of the page. Heavily spritz these with water to created the drips up and down the page. I did one end first then the other. Keep spritzing with water until you are happy with the result. I then cut a border off about an inch in from the edge. Cutting around the swirls so they go over the edge. Then distress the edges. Once the photo and embellishments have been added I added some liquid pearl dots over the swirls.

The orange background is from an example I used with the rock salt technique I did on a video tutorial I did awhile ago HERE.

I love Donna's currugated Swirls from want2scrap they are so funky. I have inked over the corrugated swirls with the jasmin inx then spritzed with water to soften the look.

I have also used an orange water colour pencil to change the colour of a couple of the paper pieces. The bow on the dress form was pink and the stripes on the family tag were pink. I coloured over them with the water colour pencil then blended with a water pen.
