2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used: 

Shine bright
Foliage set 8
Flower doliy
Indian feathers

 With this page I decided to create a mixed 
media page with have a some pastel colours....

Ok! starting off with the half frame circle flourish
Inking this delightful frame with a pale teal 
before sitting & framing the photo 
of my gorgeous girl...

Next up the SUPER cute bird where I have inked 
this CUTIE with a nice pastel pink, 
before attaching it with some foam/dimesion tape...

Next I have added 2 halfs of the flower doilies
firstly given them a coat of gesso, before inking this 
with the same pastel pink as the bird!!

Now onto the title 'Shine Bright'
I first gave it a coat of gesso then finished
it with inking parts of the title with no other color, but yellow.... 

Next up are I have added 3 Indian feathers..
I started with inking them with yellow ink, then finishing the off 
with rubbing the centres with rose gold wax,
before adding them into my flower clusters....

Then a couple of pieces from the Foilage set 8, 
where I first gave 2 of the foilage pieces, 2 coats of gesso before 
cutting these into even smaller foilage pieces, 
and also adding these thoughout my flower clusters... 

And lastly is this delicate gorgeous Filigree arrow
Inking this beauty with a purple attaching this 
onto my flower cluster...

Thanks so much for stopping by,

2 Crafty Chipboard - 'Love you long time' layout

Hello Everyone!
Today sharing my first 2 Crafty Chipboard layout for January 2020....
This layout featuring a photo of my teenage son & myself....

'Love you long time'
2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used: 

Fine leaf bush
Messy Square
6x4 phrase sticks Set 4 (1 of the new release January 2020)
Ornate Chucky heart
Foilage set 1

First up this Ornate Chucky heart 
where I have heat embossing this 
gorgeous heart with a teal...

This frame I have sitting on my photo and
another chipboard piece I heat embossed
 is the Messy Square with a nice mid blue!

Using two types of foilage for this layout
The Foilage set 1 & Fine leaf bush
Where I've inked a few of  Foilage set 1 with green ink!

And for a diferent contrast given a Fine leaf bush
a thick coat of gesso before cutting into smaller
pieces & placing also them thoughout my flower clusters.....

AND lastly but certainly not least is this one of the strips from 
6x4 phrase sticks Set 4 - Love you long time, 
where I have lightly paint on some gesso..

TIP: If you do end up getting any gesso in any of the letters,
which I did with a couple...
 I just grab my craft knife and traced over each letter 
& it seem to removed most of that gesso!  

That's it from me today!
Until next time...
