Swirlydoos Second Reveal and Leaky Shed Studio Goodies

Today I have quite a bit to share!
I have been busy crafting with the stunning Swirlydoos May kit,"Bohemian Spring" and I love adding Leaky Shed Studio chippies to everything!
All chippies are from Leaky Shed Studio.
All papers and embellies except for the Holtz knobs are from the Swirlydoo May kit.

My first project is an OTP.
Using an unpainted wood photo cube,I went with a "Wicked" meets "Dr Who" steampunk theme.

First I painted the entire cube with Copper acrylic paint. I pulled out the inside glass,covered the sides with the kit's Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope papers then backed the glass with the paper and set it back in.

The Tim Holtz light bulbs and Prima garden fountain are from the kit. I topped the bulbs with a Holtz handle from my stash, altered a LSS watchpart chippie and topped it with a gem from the kit.

I love the Kaleidoscope Collectables in the Embellishment Add-on because they mix and match effortlessly.

I am having fun with microbeads at the moment and added them all over using gloss accents.

The LSS watch parts chippies were embossed in copper and the smaller one embossed with Stampendous aged black enamel. Some of my favorite embossing powder because of the combination of colors.

The large LSS gears were embossed with Stampin' Up powder in Vintage Verdigris then distressed with copper ink.

I was inspired by Tracey Sabella's tutorial here and created a cracked glass effect using the plastic from the package, Ranger Crackle Accents and gold microbeads.

Did I mention how much I love these little lightbulbs? The larger LSS watchpart was embossed lightly to give it a hammered look.

For the top, I used the gorgeous LLS clock and painted it with Copper Rub n' Buff. 

I popped out the inner circle and after inking it with Patina Rub n' Buff,covered it with Crackle Accents. The knob was altered with Gold Rub n' Buff.

My second project was created for the Swirlydoo's Round Robin Challenge. If you love Round Robins or have never played,come check it out here.

This is my oldest son,Hayden, at his Senior Prom, 4 years ago. His date looked gorgeous,but that was a difficult dress to scrap!

Using a Prima stencil,I applied texture paste to the background and misted it with blues and greens.
The LSS Flourish chippie was covered in Crackle Accents and microbeads. Under the tearaway openings I inserted the black Prima mats after embossing and highlighting them with blue chalk ink.

I added a few flowers from my stash and used mixed microbeads on this larger Flourish chippie as well.

Keeping the same color scheme, I embossed the paper and used it to mat the pic that was edged in gold Rub n' Buff. The large circle frame chippie from LSS was rubbed with a mix of Copper,Gold and patina Rub n' Buff. I seriously love this stuff,if you can't tell. The green gems were cut from the generous bling swatch from the kit.

As you can see, lots of dimension to this page!
Whew! That's all I have for today!

Stop by the Swirlydoos Boutique and the Leaky Shed Studio Shop to pick up the goodies I used here!
