In this layout I have used another pic of my grandaughter,
taken when she was just three weeks old.

Hello Beautiful - title
Vintage Hot Air Balloons
For my title, I used the "Hello Beautiful"& added a little mini word "GIRL", also from
the 2Crafty range. All my chippie pieces were firstly given a coat of gesso which
creates a great base upon which you can add just about anything.
Lots & lots of fussy cutting here. Love those little owls. :)
On all these pieces I simply used some Prima Chalk Inks to add colour to
the chippies, then I brushed over a little bit of water to make the ink runny
& to give it a bit of a water colour effect as opposed to a solid colour.
I just love those "Lattice Leaves" tucked in to my flower clusters.
Lastly I cut up the "Corner Arches" and placed them end to end underneath
the photo & then heat embossed them. I do love the way you can adapt chipboard that way.

Pure Joy title
I started off with this fab new title to the 2Crafty range, "Pure Joy"
and is just what she is to us all.
All of my chippies pieces on this layout for firstly given a coat of
gesso & here on the title I have followed that with some aqua green Prima Mica powder.
The little "Olivia Frames" I gave a coat of white acrylic paint after the gesso
because I wanted them to be really bright white & stand out.
I have also added a couple of 2Crafty "Addy's Butterflies" to my layout.
Here you can see the "Corner Ivy" which I cut in half to create a border with instead
of using it as a corner. This is such a beautiful piece, so fine & delicate & again
I have again used an aqua green Mica Powder to colour it.
Well thats all for today, back soon with more.
