2 Crafty Chipboard - 'April 2012' layout

Hello & welcome to my blog...

Today I share this layout 
 I have created for 2 Crafty Chipboard 
featuring this photo of myself, with my gorgeous girl back in 2012...

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Bulldog Clip set
Field Mushrooms
Fine Month words

As many of you may have noticed by now is 
I LOVE to add the date to my layouts and the date is also my title....
For the 2012 I have just simply given it two coats of gesso and
 have inked the Monthly Fine word - April with a lovely purple...

next up are these Fern stems and as you can see I have added some textural layers
to these ferns, by embossing them, then with a blending brush adding some colour.
AND I am SUPER happy with how these have turned O.U.T...

Lastly, I have added a couple of the newly released chipboard pieces,
First up is the Bulldog Clip I have sitting to on the top left of the photo, (in this close up it is at the top right)
again inking this clip with the purple..

Then lastly & one of my faves from the newly released is some of the Field Mushrooms
Ain't they just the cutest mushrooms!! given them a coat of gesso & finishing them by inking
the tops with yep with the purple....

 I hope I have inspired you in some way,
Thanks for popping by
Until next time  x

2 Crafty Chipboard - 'Timeless Beauty"

 Hello There!
Today I share my newest DT 2 Crafty ..
'Timeless beauty"

This features a photo of my beautiful daughter
and some really fabulous 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces: 

Old World key/Lock set
Steampunk Border 9"
Steampunk Arrow set
Timeless Beauty title

Let's start with the very so gorgeous Lock from Old World key/Lockset
What I did was trying my best not to lose any of that beautiful delicate detailing
 to this lock by using a paintbrush and applying a very very light coat of gesso..

also added some gesso to this really cool Steampunk arrow I have sitting on the lock...

Next up is the title - Timeless Beauty 
.where I just simply inked it twice with  nice forest green,
I really like how it has turned out... I also did the same to the 2018

Lastly, we have the beautiful Steampunk Border 9"
So I tried something a little different from my usual inking & gessoing...
I heat-embossed this board with a really pretty Rose Quartz...

Thanks for popping by 
and until next time
