My 2 Crafty Chipboard February DT Reveal
Part Two
"Gorgeous"


Hi there, so glad you stopped by. Today I have part two of my
DT reveal.  I have gone with a slightly shabby chic look,
green & purple is one of my most fave colour combos & I have
used lots of NEW release chippies from the latest 2 Crafty range.


I have used one of their  NEW Titles- "Gorgeous".


In this pic you can see I have used one of the NEW
"Circle Revolution Frames"
around my photo to draw the eye in. These come with
 three different sizes on a sheet. Great value.

I have also added touches of gold for a rich & opulent feel.


These are another  NEW RELEASE piece called "Rose Sets".
 I finished them off  by adding some purple micro beads.


Here I have used yet another NEW piece. This new piece is from
a set called "Ornate Hearts" . I do love how  it has a  leafy flourish.


To read about any of the techniques I  have used on my chippie pieces,
there is a full description over on the 2 Crafty blog.

Thanks for stopping by & remember if you too want some of
these gorgeous chippie pieces, ask your local scrapbook store
to order some in for you. 2Crafty will ship anywhere in the world.

Until next time.

My 2 Crafty Chipboard February DT Reveal
Part One
"Those Eyes That Smile"



Hi there, thanks for calling by. Today I have part one of my
February reveal for
 2 Crafty chipboard.

This first layout is of a friends daughter, which you may have seen before
as they did a photo shoot & I am so lucky to have been given lots of the pics.

To start with I used lots of Washi Tapes from Green Tara  along
 both the top & bottom edges of my layout.


Title-"Those Eyes That Smile" is one of 2 Crafty's newest releases.
Also I have tucked one of their tiny "Film Strips" in on
the side of the page too.

Here you can also see  some tiny stars
from the NEW  "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars" pack to
just scatter around the page.


In amongst my layers I have also tucked in some
of the "Giant Gears" which also come in a multi pack.
These are one of my "go to" chippie pieces as they just seem
to work on all sorts of different layouts for both boys & girl pages.


And more......


At the side of my flower cluster I have tucked in a little girl
 chippie from the 2 Crafty  "Happy Children" Multi Pack.
Isn't she sweet?
 
To read about any of the techniques I  have used on my chippie pieces,
there is a full description over on the 2 Crafty blog.

2 Crafty chipboard really do have a magnificent range 
of'chipboard to suit all sorts of layouts.
 Pop over to their website & check it out & maybe
ask your local scrapbook store to order some
 in for you. They ship to shops anywhere in the world.

Stay tuned for part two in a couple of days.

Part Three
"Love"
PLUS It was "Featured" at Berry71Bleu Blog

 
 
Hi there, thanks for droppin by.
Today I have my layout that I created for part three of GREEN TARA  February DT reveal
I did an online tutorial over at Pop & Colours #2 with the very talented
Georgia Heald so I have based this layout on the tutorial
& naturally I have used lots of Lovely Green Tara products.
 
I have also entered it in this months challenge over at
"Berry 71 Blue" challenge blog.
This months challenge was to do a mixed media project using more than
one medium & my layout here certainly does that.
 
FOOTNOTE.....
I just found out that this layout was
 "Featured"  
over at the Berry71Bleu blog.


The challenge criteria.......
The background here was created using, gesso, texture paste, 
various mists, paints &  inks.


Some yummy Green Tara Washi Tapes.


Lots of different Green Tara flowers & roses. The teale ones were actually
white but I have misted them to make them just the right colour to suit my layout.

I found this quote which I thought suited our newlyweds perfectly.
Don't you just love it.
Well thats all for today.
Until next time.

My Green Tara February DT Reveal
Part Two
"Favourite"


Hello there, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part two of my February DT reveal for 
 I have featured some of my favouite blooms.
 I do so love these colours, it really brings life into the garden.

 I have based this layout on the current sketch
challenge over at Skissedella.
I have turned the sketch on its side ..




Lots of fun creating the background with various  mixed media
and teamed with lots of beautiful Green Tara goodies.
A match made in heaven.
 


All of these beautiful flowers, roses, rosebuds & leaves are all from Green Tara.
Note the beautiful "Silver & Pearl Spray" coming out from beneath the flower cluster.
Green Tara also have rather an extensive range of these types of "Blingy Bits".
I am really enjoying re visiting bling & sparkle.


I have used some of their white "Wired Cord" to create this circle
frame around my photo to help draw the eye. This is amazing stuff
& it has wire in it so you can bend it anyways & it stays put.
Great product to work with & it comes in various colours too.


Love these Green Tara "Silk Flowers with a Swarovski Crystal Centre".
Again lots of different colours available & because of the crystal in the 
middle they really sparkle & shine.
I have also added some of their "Silver Mesh" underneath my photo too.

My chipboard title is from 2 Crafty Chipboard.

I'll be back in a day or two with part three of my
February reveal for Green Tara.

I would like to formerly  introduce you to my beautiful
 NEW Grandaughter, Mia. This is the very first layout
 I have done of her (the first of many more to come) as she was only
 born two weeks ago & now  I am a Grandmother for the very first time.

  Love her to bits.

Naturally I have used lots of gorgeous Green Tara products,


Some of the wonderful Green Tara "laces" that they have in their range as well as
some of their ever popular "Herringbone Ribbons" in both peach & aqua.


Some of their vast range of different sized "Roses" & "Mini Rosebuds"
which I have sprayed to get the exact colour I needed to match the ribbons.


One of their "Azelea"  flowers which I also sprayed to match,
as well I have tied this bow using yet another beautiful Green Tara
"Double Sided Satin Ribbon" .


Both the chipboard title "Precious" as well as the "2014"
