Hi there!
I'm back to share 2 layouts that I created as part of my July DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard!

"Key to my Heart"

2 Crafty Chipboard used..
  Key to my Heart title 
Frame heart String
Bird set
 Funky Arrow
 Bead hanging hearts
  Foliage set 1

I started off with giving a coat of gesso to most of these chipboard pieces...
  Then decided that the bird, the bead hanging hearts & the title Key to my Heart looked good left as is...

After the gesso dried on the Foilage, from Foilage set 1 then gave it a good coat of texture paste & finish it with by adding some teal & green colors!

Around my photo, I've used the larger Frame heart string... Once the coat of gesso dried  I then added some pink to the frame!

I inked this Funky Arrow with Silver ink & it ended up getting a few white splatters... Which I  ❤️  the end result!!


My second layout.....


2 Crafty Chipboard used:
which include a couple of the new released pieces
Fine word set 1– Cherish 
Humming bird 
Arrowed Heart 
Circle dot frame
Beaded heart border

I Sooo ❤️ the Fine words... I started off with adding a coat of gesso to the Fine word - Cherish then a coat of gel medium & the finish with some pink mist spray... 
Gave a coat of gesso to this Circle dot frame & finished it with a few pastel color crystals!  I think it looks SO PRETTY....

Another new FAVORITE of mine from the new released range is the GORGEOUS Humming bird  SO pretty & delicate!!  
I started with a VERY light coat of gesso & finished it off with a rainbow of watercolors....
 VERY HAPPY with how it turned out...  :) 

Once the coat of gesso dried on this Beaded heart border, cut it in half & placed it either side of my page....

More Than Words - July Challenge

Hello there!
Back again, this time sharing my DT layout for 
More Than Words July Challenge....

Word Inspiration - SMILE
Creative Challenge - SKETCH

What does the word SMILE inspire you to create?
You can choose to add the word somewhere on your project or simply
be inspired to create from it. Please explain in your blog post
how the word inspired you, if not already obvious.

For the Creative Challenge, use this fabulous SKETCH designed by our very own DT member, Helen Hapsi. Feel free to turn the sketch in any direction your prefer. You can interpret any element of it as you wish, as long as
we can see that it was the basis of your creation.


"With my two children getting older, they are not as keen to get their picture taken as often, let alone together! So I thought this photo was perfect for the word SMILE. I had fun working with the SKETCH and adding some drawn flowers and many other elements inspired by it."

13@rts - watercolors, hexagon glitter papers & American Crafts papers, Kasiercraft Stamps & Butterfly a pinterest print!

2 Crafty Polaroid frame,word Smile & a Rachel Corner Chipboard....

I hope you get a chance to stop by the More Than Words blog  -----> HERE to check out my fellow designers GORGEOUS projects & you get inspired to play along!

June DT layouts for 2 Crafty Chipboard

Hello There!
I have 2 layouts to share that I created as part of my June DT work


These are the 2 Crafty chipboard I have used on my first layout

I decided to use up some negative/leftover piece from the 'Chervon bits'..
Gave then a light coat of gesso & cut & layered underneath photo...

 Not to take away any of the details of the arrow & feather from the 'Western set' 
I gave the arrow a light coat of gesso & the feather a light coat of blue ink...

 ATC - Tiny Stars I just inked black so they would stand out a little more!

Added a couple coats of gesso to the loopy font 'Happy' a little blue mist. I still wanted the blue to be a bit stronger... SO! I colored it with Artline permanent blue maker..
Was very happy (hehehe) how it turned out!

Cut this 'Tattoo Swirl' into 2 pieces, added a coat of gesso & finished it off with a thick layer of Fabrika Decoru - Texture Paste with sand!

& my 2nd layout is a bit more girly....

'♥ 2 Dance'

For my 2nd layout these are the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used.

After adding a layer of gesso to this '♥ 2 Dance' piece from the '6x6 dance theme sheet'
 I added red using a mist to the ♥ ,  finishing this off with adding some teal ink to the bottom half of the word dance!

Gave these Stars which are also from the '6x6 dance theme sheet' a coat of gesso & Fabrika Decoru - Texture Paste with sand! 

This 'Juliet heart' has a coat of gesso & finished it of with some red mist....

I thought this 'Flying Bird' would stand out better sitting on the teal flower with adding a coat of gesso! 
Did the same to the 'Circle Heart frame' that is sitting over the photo!

Adding coat of gesso & Teal, Red & black water colors to finish this 'Wing'....

To the 'Indian Feathers' & 'Soft Feathers' have a light coat of gesso & then while the gesso was still wet added some gold & pink glitter! 

Just before I go.....
