2 Crafty Chipboard -
'Beyond Words' layout

Hello everyone!
Today I have my newest layout
I created for  2 Crafty Chipboard....

This layout featuring a photo of my girl taken back in 2015

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Small Steampunk gears
Beyond Words
Medium Steampunk gears
Winter leaves
Freda's butterflies

I always tend to roughly pre set out my layout before I go about
doing anything to the chipboard pieces I am going to use....

Starting with my title - Beyond Words
keeping it quite simple & 2 coats of gesso...

Next up are the Winter leaves, Where I have Inked them with my
favourite brand of inks - Tim Holtz Distress Oxide' Frayed Burlap'

Then the Freda's butterflies again inking them
 this time with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide - Victorian velvet, 
A really nice subtle dusty pink....

Now with the few Small and Medium Steampunk gears
I have thoughtout my page... again with the inking.... 
 Tim Holtz Distress Oxide 'Ground Espresso'

And lastly my finishing touch is the 2015
where I went with 
a inking it with some burgandy....

Thanks for stopping by & 
Until next time HAPPY crafting....

This page featuring a photo of my 3 favorite man in my life..

Amongst all my fussy cutting I have 
added some great chipboard pieces...

Chervon bits
Special - Script (title)
6x4 Phrase Stick 3

Starting off with the Family is Everything 
from the 6x4 Phrase Stick 3 and the 2020 
Inking both of these with a Silver ink..

Next up is the Chervon bits, Always a great addition to any page
I have inked these with brown...

The Frame Bracket border I have sitting in
between the paper layers & my photo, I have
inked this with Time Holtz - Peacock Feather (teal)

Lastly for my title 'Special'
I have given this two coats of Gesso...
And that's it from me, I hope I have inpsired you
in some way... Until Next time
