Say Goodbye to Swan Lake

Swan Lake is a cute set but I’ve had trouble thinking of ideas on how to use it.  I’ve had these marbled papers sitting on my craft table for a few months now waiting for me to think of a way to use them and today is the day one of them is getting used.  I did the shaving cream technique using Dapper Denim and Pool Party.  My goal was to create a galaxy background like Linda Dalke created but since I had the marbled shaving cream I created some backgrounds with that too.  I used the Watercolor pencils and Blender pen to add a little color to the swan.
