My 2Crafty August DT Reveal
Part One
"Be Yourself"

 
Hello there 2 Crafty fans, thanks for calling by.
Today I want to share part one of my August DT reveal with you 
& I have used some of their latest released pieces. Looove them all.

2Crafty products used..
6" Bubble Grid Panel
Title-"Be Yourself"
2014-Date
Leafy Shrub Set #2
 

After a quick coat of gesso I just painted this cute little title, "Be Yourself" with some Tim Holtz
Distress Crackle Paint. Too easy & it gives the chippies a great texture too.


Now the feature chippie piece on this layout would have to be this newly
released "Bubble Grid Panel". It is actually a 6" square but I have cut it
into pieces & placed it all around my photo & I have still got lots left to use
 on another project. All I have done with this chippie piece is to colour it
with a black ink pad. It doesn't get much easier than that.

I just loooove the look of plain black chippies with bright colours 
on a layout. I think it packs a punch.


Some nice background textures using mixed media & stamping,
creates a good backdrop for the plain black chippies.

  
In the next two photos you can see I have used a couple of the pieces of the
"Leafy Shrub Set #2" which again I just coloured with a black ink pad. 
They do look good tucked in with your flower clusters.

Here you can see the "2014" tucked in underneath the photo
Great way to turn the date into an embellishment.

 
.
Well thats all from me today, I'll be back in a few days with part two
of my August reveal for 2Crafty chipboard. Hope you will call by again.
 
Until then
