Layout Inspiration: Cherish


Hi Everyone,
Sharing some more recent 2Crafty Chipboard loveliness.  The chipboard elements were kept subtle.  I altered with chalk inks, white gesso and Snow White Colour Blast Texture Paste.

The Elsa Frame does frame my photo beautifully!
Ava's Frame was positioned over the the bottom left had corner with a small ivy leaf
 removed from the Ivy Cluster to sit over the top of the cascading flourish.

Beaded Hanging Heart and Fanciful Butterfly  and "Cherish" from the
Fine Word Set 1 were also added.

Layout Inspiration:Together


Hello Again,

Popping in with another recent project created for 2Crafty Chipboard -  my own girls who are always
 'together' - the title coming from the Mini Word Set 2.

I have combined fussy cut elements from Kaisercraft patterned papers
 with 2CC chipboard to create dimension and detail.  

I also kept the chipboard elements soft and inked with
Prima chalk inks in Old Rose and  Pastel Brown.

One of the borders from the Lacey Border Set 1 adorns the outer edge of the page. 
A corner effect was also created with a Twisted Vine Corner with trimmed floral
 elements from Ella's Border.  I tucked in some more of the trimmed floral elements
 under the bottom photo edge and floral cluster.  Another floral accent was added to
the side with a fussy cut butterfly.

2Crafty Chipboard and Kraft+: Laugh

Hi Everyone,

Popping in with my take on this month's Kraft+ Challenge.  2Crafty Chipboard are also  sponsors for this month so I have incorporated 2CC loveliness along with 'blast from the past' products.

'Blast From The Past Elements' include: ribbon, button, punched elements and an older Prima patterned paper.
A mixed media background was created on the Kraft cardstock - Heidi Swapp Primrose and Mustard Color Shine with Colour Burst powders over the top.

2 Crafty Chipboard Flourish 3 was positioned underneath the photo with trimmed Climbing Rose Bush pieces and tucked in around the main embellishment cluster.
A 6" Circle Revolution Frame frames the photo with a Word Circle positioned over the top.

Apart from the word circle, all chipboard elements were kept in there natural state
 before altering with Ultramarine Blue Colour Burst powder and water.  

All the details for the Kraft+ challenge and inspiration can be found HERE

Till next time,

Layout Inspiration: Simply The Best

Hi Everyone,

Popping in to share a recent layout created for 2Crafty Chipboard showcasing their fabulous Star Frame With Stars,  Swirly Star Border and Simply The Best - Word Title.

 I have also had lots of fun playing with Color Burst powders and water. I created the background with Fuchsia and Orchid and have also colour coordinated the chipboard elements. 
The Frame Star with Stars was first painted with a coat of Dina Wakley heavy white paint.  A burst of water colour fun was added to coordinate with the background.  Again I used Fuchsia and Orchid.
The word title has been inked black and positioned over the star frame.

Swirly Star Border cascades on an angle from the Star Frame, 
also painted white and altered with Orchid.  

I also added a fun element to the page with a silhouette photo.  I positioned this so as
 to be swinging from the chipboard elements.


Thanks so much for dropping by today,

Dream Big


Popping in with a layout that I recently had the pleasure of teaching at a workshop for Surreal Creations.  It was a super fun day and the ladies attending were fabulous.
This is what we created:

"Dream Big" 
We had some mix media fun with Colour Blast products for creating the background and altering 2Crafty Chipboard elements.
It wouldn't be me if I didn't include fussy cutting - these beauties came from Graphic 45 Gilded Lily collection and some pretty Prima flowers.

Colour Blast: Precious

Hello Everyone!

I had lots of fun creating the background and altering 2Crafty Chipboard for my project 'Precious' with Colour Blast Shimmer Sprays and Colour Paste.

White Cardstock background has been transformed with Colour Shimmer Sprays Deep WaterFire EngineLipstick and Sunshine and Colour Paste Snow White and Sunshine.

Lipstick was first spritzed over the background with Fire Engine added over some of the areas to add intensity. The cardstock was also tilted to create 'runs'. Some masked detail was also added - first with Snow White Colour Paste and bubbles stencil with Deep WaterShimmer Spray spritzed over the top. Yellow masked accents were added with SunshineColour Paste and a turkish lattice stencil.
The 2Crafty Chipboard circle dot frame surrounding my photo was altered with Fire Engine Colour Paste. A palette knife was used for applying it. A heat gun was used to create the slightly 'bubbled' effect.

White paint was mixed with Snow White Colour Paste to alter some of the other 2Crafty chipboard elements - Heart Frame. Beaded Hanging Heart and Precious Title.
 Fire Engine Embossing Powder which was heat set creates subtle accenting to areas of the chipboard flourish.

Snow White Texture Colour Paste was also used to accent the chipboard word title and petal tips of pretty Prima flowers.

The larger flower was also lightly misted with Sunshine Shimmer Spray to coordinate. 

Thanks so much for dropping by,

Love This Girl

Hi Everyone!

I  have another layout to share created with Prima's gorgeous Divine collection.

Some colour was added to white cardstock with Color Bloom Sprays  - I used Peony and Vibrant Turquoise and Sunshine. Masked detail was added with a 12 x 12 "Stain" stencil and Colour Blast Snow White Colour paste. The cardstock was trimmed a little and adhered to Zephyr Tempore.

I just love this girly image from the Envoy paper - I fussy cut her out and attached her one side of the photo. She sits on a few layers of Divine chipboard elements, fussy cut doily's from the Couplet paper and Divine Journaling note cards. I also added a stamped an image with one of the stamps from the Fairy Bell Cling Stamp set with Turquoise Stone. 
A few pretty flowers and  a sparkly SIIC (Bedtime Story) decorate the top of her skirt.

A few fussy cut flowers from Zephyr patterned paper were tucked in. A sweet fussy cut banner was also added from the Envoy paper, a few more doily's and flowers.
A cluster was created that sits on the bottom right hand corner of the photo. Pretty blooms sit on fussy cut floral elements from Zephyr paper's, Divine chipboard pieces and Garden Fable Match Box.
