My 2Crafty Chipboard October DT Reveal
Part One
"Just the Girls"

Hi there friends. Thanks for stopping by. Today I have part one of my
October DT reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard.
A friend gave me this photo last year & I scrapped it at the time but I always
felt I could do better, so here it is. I have to say I am happier with it
this time round !!!

 I have used one of the many fabulous chipboard titles that 2Crafty make.
They have hundreds to choose from. 

All my chippie pieces were firstly given a coat of Gesso,
followed by a coat of  Viva transparent "Crystal Gel".
This creates an incredible crackled effect.
Next up I sprayed all the pieces with a blue mist. This looks great over
the crackle gel as the colour goes into the cracks & really shows it off.

Underneath my flower cluster I have used a piece from the "Leafy Shrub Set #2".
This shrub set is probably one of my favourite go to pieces. Love it & doesn't it look 
lovely with the crackled effect on it.

Here I have used some chippie "Doilies" both above & below my photos.
I left these white but finished off with some Micro Beads for more texture
& a little dab of mist applied with a brush for a watercolour effect.

Underneath this little flower cluster I have added a "Leafy Round".
This piece is so beautifully fine & just perfect for layering.

I also added a small "Butterfly" from one of the many
 butterfly sets that 2Crafty have in their range.

 Lots of background work using various mediums, mists & stamps
Well thats all for today. I'll be back with part two of my 
October reveal in a day or two.
Until then
