My 2Crafty Chipboard November DT Reveal
Part One
"Our Sweet Girl"

Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by. Today I have part one of my
November DT reveal for 

A layout featuring my grandaughter Mia to share with you.
 I just adore this pic of her.

2Crafty Products Used...
Our Sweet Girl - title
Tiny Leaf Stems
Fine Leafy Bush
Chicken Wire - small
Chicken Wire - medium

I thought this 2Crafty title, "Our Sweet Girl" was just perfect for my layout.
Here I simply basecoated it in white paint followed by a coat of bronze acrylic paint.
Too easy.

Next up I set to work altering these "Tiny Leaf Stems" to add in with my flowers.
I started off with a base coat of white paint, then I blobbed on some texture paste
 just using my finger so that it would be rough, then I heated it with a heat gun to
 make it bubble up & then lastly I sprayed it with some Lindy's Gang sprays in
"Grab A Guy Gold" & "Cowabunga Copper".

I treated the "Fine Leafy Bush" in the same way & then I cut
it into pieces & poked it in here & there around the flowers.

I added some cut up pieces of both the small & medium
"Chicken Wire" In & around the layout too for added texture.

All these gorgeous kraft coloured flowers are from my good friends over at

Well thats all from me today, I will see you back herein a couple
of days time with more great 2Crafty chipboard inspiration.

Until then....

My 2Crafty Chipboard October DT Reveal
Part Two
"Enjoy Today"

 Hello lovelies, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part two of my October DT reveal for

To start with on my background, after first doing a little stencilling, I brushed
a little bit of Lindys Stamp Gang "Whale Watch Blue" & some water to
tone it down, around the layout.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Enjoy Today - title
Assorted Polaroid Frames
Skeleton Leaves
Mini Fast Forward Arrows

I just love these 2Crafty "Assorted Polaroid Frames" which I have painted
in blue & white acrylic paints & the charcoal ones in some 
Viva Ferro metal effects paste.

Their  title - "Enjoy Today" was also painted in white acrylic paint. Too easy.

 I just kept snipping the frames & layering them up underneath my photos.

I have also used some different arrows from their "Mini Fast Forward Arrow Pack"
These were simply painted in a couple of coats of white paint also.

My paper & flowers are from 49 and Market & as you can see I have added some of 
the 2Crafty chippie "Skeleton Leaves" in & around the flowers for an added extra effect.

 I painted the leaves in a coat of acrylic paint followed up by rubbing some
Distress Ink in Peeled Paint over them. It sort of gives a two toned effect.

Well thats all from me today.
I do hope you liked my layout & remember I always love to read your feedback too.
 Until next time.
