My 2 Crafty November DT Reveal - Part Two
"Hello Beautiful Girl"


Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by. Today I have part two of my 
November DT reveal for 2Crafty chipboard.
In this layout I have used another pic of my grandaughter, 
taken when she was just three weeks old.
 
2Crafty chipboard used...
Hello Beautiful - title
Lattice Leaves
Corner Arches
Vintage Hot Air Balloons



For my title, I used the "Hello Beautiful"& added a little mini word "GIRL", also from
the 2Crafty range. All my chippie pieces were firstly given a coat of gesso which
 creates a great base upon which you can add just about anything.

Lots & lots of fussy cutting here. Love those little owls. :)


On all these pieces I simply used some Prima Chalk Inks to add colour to 
the chippies, then I brushed over a little bit of water to make the ink runny
 & to give it a bit of a water colour effect as opposed to a solid colour.


I just love those "Lattice Leaves" tucked in to my flower clusters.

 
  Lastly I cut up the "Corner Arches" and placed them end to end underneath
 the photo & then heat embossed them.  I do love the way you can adapt chipboard that way.

My 2Crafty Chipboard November DT Reveal
"Pure Joy"
Prima November BAP Challenge


 Hi there paper friends, thanks for stopping by. 
Today I have part one of my 2Crafty Chipboard
November DT reveal to share with you.
 It features my beautiful grandaughter Mia. We took these pics last 
week and I couldn't wait to scrap them. I have based this layout on the
November BAP challenge over on the Prima blog.

I have turned the sketch 90 degrees to the left  & flipped it too.
(To see full Prima product list - scroll down)

2Crafty products used..
Corner Ivy
Olivia's Frames
Pure Joy title 
Addy's Butterflies



 I started off with this fab new title to the 2Crafty range, "Pure Joy"
and is just what she is to us all.

All of my chippies pieces on this layout for firstly given a coat of
gesso & here on the title I have followed that with some aqua green Prima Mica powder.

 The little "Olivia Frames" I gave a coat of white acrylic paint after the gesso
because I wanted them to be really bright white & stand out.


I have also added a couple of 2Crafty "Addy's Butterflies" to my layout.


Here you can see the "Corner Ivy" which I cut in half to create a border with instead
of using it as a corner. This is such a beautiful piece, so fine & delicate & again 
 I have again used an aqua green Mica Powder to colour it.

Well thats all for today, back soon with more.
