Park Ave Kit from Swirlydoo- Sketch Challenge

I got my Swirlydoo Kit on April 6th  and made This beautiful layout for the Sketch Challenge!
 My sister, Cheryl, who loves photography, took these photos of Jerica this past fall.  She did an awesome job.  This layout was a bit of a stretch for me, as blue is not really a color I like to work with.  The blue in my daughter's coat was my *saving grace*. The blue scroll I got from Niklindesigns1225, and I added a layer of the Blueberry Shimmerz paint on top to give it a bit of glitz. For the title, I used the Prima lettering that came with the kit and inked it up with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and then wiped off the ink [which didn't stick to the vinyl part] making the letters pop and stand out much better.
I added the orangy colored Prima rosebuds I got in a RAK to bring out the red in my daughters hair, and then used some of the blue tole to wrap around the base of the flowers framing the larger photo.
 I took the 3 white flowers and changed them up a bit by adding a mix of red and yellow ink to make the peachy color and lightly brushing it on with a fine paint brush. I also sprayed them with Smooch Spritz in Vanilla which I love the way it turned out.  Lots of nice sparkle, which you can't really see on the photo.  I swiped some of the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.

In this photo you can see some of the masking I did with my new Tim Holtz Mask called Timeworks.  Also I used the blue pearl strand that came with the kit and glued it on the diecut paper, following the line of the navy line.  I added some rub on butterflies I got in a Rak and that finished off my layout!  I hope you enjoyed looking!  Please come back and feel free to leave a comment! They are always a highlight for me to read!
