My 2Crafty April DT Reveal
"A Glimpse of You"


Hello friends, thanks for calling by. 
Today I have part two of my April DT reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard.
Now this is a very special layout to me as I am going to become a Grandmother
for the second time in late September & this is the ultrasound photo.
 It is not very clear but it is super special to us & I just had to scrap it.

2Crafty Chipboard Used

All the chippie pieces were firstly given a coat of gesso.
That acts like an undercoat or primer & makes it much easier
to then colour & gives a bettter result too.
The hearts & border were then given a brushed on  coat of "Turquoise Blue" Glimmermist.
The words & hearts were coloured with some Kaisercraft "Candy" acrylic paint.
The foliage were coloured using some "Frayed Burlap" Distress Ink.


Love these new Lace Heart Frames & as you can see, I have put the
 ultrasound photo in one & a sweet little quote in the other.

 
This title "A Glimpse of You"
is a new release item. I thought it was perfect for my layout.
 

I just love the way these Lace Heart Frames  match this Stitch Lace Border too.


Another new release item to the 2Crafty range is this Foliage Set #1
which I have added some bits here & there for a nice little accent. 

 
Some more of that same Foliage Set #1 & a few Butterflies scattered around the page.

 
 Well thats all for today. I hope I have inspired you to perhaps get hold of some
wonderful 2Crafty chippies to use on your next project too.
Until next time.
