2 Crafty Chipboard - 'My Gorgeous Nephew' layout

Hello There!!

 Today i'm sharing this layout I created as part of 
July 2019 DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard inspired 
by the 2 Crafty Chipboard title 
My Gorgeous Nephew


I am pretty lucky I have 7 gorgeous nephews, 
featuring is just one of those nephews.... 

I just love how this photo captures those beautiful blue eyes he has...

 2 Crafty Chipboard: 


2018 
My Gorgeous Nephew
Assort chain borders
Small film strip
ATC - Tiny Stars  


Once I had created my mixed media background, 
I then used the leftover/negative pieces from Adian's arrow, 
painted this with gesso & attaching this just to give another level of contrast....

Aidan's Arrows (units of 3)



Using only 1 strip from the Assort chain borders cutting into 
 2 small strips inking with black & adhering them against the white...

Also! Inked with black the title My Gorgeous Nephew




I cut into 2 lengths a Small film strip colouring both 
pieces with Tim Holtz - Distress Crayons
 to coordinate nicely with the two toned background paper....


Painted a couple of coats of gesso to the 2018 


Did the same treatment as the I did to the film strip
 to the ATC - Tiny Stars, adding teal colour to some & green to others...


That's it from me today!
Thanks for stopping by...

Anna's Craft Cupboard - Mintay by Karola 'Dare to dream big' layout

Hello everyone! 
Back sharing my 4th & final project I created for Anna's Craft Cupboard
using the gorgeous Mintay by Karola - Dreamer Collection...

'Dare to dream BIG'



I started with white cardstock, adding some stamping 
using Kaisercraft - Woven line stamp, 
next I couldn't resist using the gorgeous floral 
Mintay by Karola Dreamer paper 04, 
tearing either side & attaching this to the white card....
 Then adding a few images fussy cut out from 
Mintay by Karola - Dreamer elements 09 &
 Mintay by Karola - Dreamer paper 06 papers 
with foam tape.... 
Next added photos & peeking out from the bottom right side of photos
 I have added Kaisercraft - Decorative die Whimsical circle frame 
cut from black cardstock...
 Next I added some Prima - Golden coast 'Malibu' &
 Prima - Moon Child Fabric flowers, 
then I stamped a few leaves onto white cardstock, 
fussy cut out & coloured the centres with 
Tim Holtz - Peeled Paint (green) Distress Crayon before attaching these....







Finalizing my page with adding a few Annabelle Acrylics - black curls, 
dare to dream big stamp onto white card &
 fussy cutting this out & adhering it with foam tape, 
then adding black & purple splatters....
