      Guys, I started working on design with my April kit and it is just ugly. The more I work on it, the uglier it gets. I'm so frustrated. Do I just toss it or can somebody save it? Beware, it's gross. I want to be good like you guys!!!!

        What do you find ugly? I think with a little more mixed media and embellishing it will tu out really cool. What was your initial vision?

          Hi Saleta! It is not ugly at all. I like what you have so far–you need to keep rolling with it! Lay some flowers and maybe a word or two around your pic and then come back and have another look at it in a bit. I'm sure you will get other suggestions! You are a Swirly Savage! 🙂

            Bring your photo closer to your swirl to Make it flow a bit better and embellish the ever livin batooties out of it. When u think u have enough…add 3 more pieces!!!

            P.s. I think it's a gorgeous start. I told you in the other thread I was positive it wasn't ugly. ;)

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

              The in between paper is white with fuzzy edges. I can't find green flowers to match. So Im trying white but thats not working either. So I tried to paint some flowers I had with a twinkling h20 green. Green paint got on my white background. I don't think you can see that in the picture. I tried to cover it up but it just smeared. Anyway, I just painted all the white with the green. I hate it. I put strips of lace down the middle, around the picture and even around to cover the ugly green. I like it down the middle the best. If I could just do something to hide that ugly green I think I'll be okay. I think I will try hiding it with another paper. What do y'all think about that?

              Well, first off it is NOT ugly and secondly we all make paint mistakes that need to be covered. I say go for white flowers and accent the rest with a variety of shades of green (leaves, chipboard, tinted lace etc – whatever your style).

                I thiink it is beautiful..Cover the green you don't like with more of how you did the swirl. Any color of flower would look pretty and pick up the green with the leaves as Vicky says. Pretty pic and frame! I think you are off to a great start…the edges are beautiful too!

                  I think it looks fantastic! Once you start layering it'll come together!

                      Saleta that's the spirit! I don't think it's ugly at all. I think you've got a great start here and all of the ladies suggestions would look great. Once you start adding your embellishments and flowers you'll see how it will come together.

                      Can't wait to see it when you are all done, Saleta! I think it is going to be fantastic!

                        Actually you can see the bit of green in the pic and it's so soft and pretty. Try going with Vicky's idea…varying shades of green.

                          Okay, I'm much happier with this. Y'all we're right. Once I started adding embellishments, it started to come together. Thanks, everybody!
