Artaste April Challenge

What a great challenge, i just love swirls and thought that this one would be a snitch  to do, after all, i love anything with swirls in , but being so close to the end of the month  i  wanted to rush with it, so my first 2 attempts, with gesso and sprays, did not work as well as i expected and my third attempt i did not like the end result, a friend of mine once said  sometimes simple is always the nicest with out going to too much trouble. so that's what i  did. and i love it better than my previous attempts at this one.

To start off, i found some patterned paper with swirls in it and a sheet of purple card stock,  Out came my lucky 8 punch and with 8 simple punches, my design was made i then attached it to the bottom of  the page. 
I  then added  black card stock to my photo,
and in my stash i have lovely bling with swirls, so placed them on the page along with some pretty flowers that i bought to make cards with, but they did not get onto the cards.  all this was  attached to white card stock.
 I have also inked some  glittery swirls in pink and yellow to the page.
