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


Hi there 2Crafty fans. Thanks for stopping by the blog.
Today I have part two of my February DT reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard.

Today I thought I would do some bright colours
& when you want brights, what better to use than Dylusion sprays.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Friendship Mini Word Pack
Mini Flourish Pack
Lattice Leaf Set
Ariels Spray
Frame - Jenna


I have created some texture on the background with stencils, texture paste & Dylusions.
To co ordinate all my chippie pieces with my background I first gave all the chippies
a coat of white paint as a base coat. NOT GESSO. Gesso & Dylusions are not very
compatible. The gesso seems to suck the colour out of the Dylusions & fades it.

In this pic you can see the beautiful "Ariels Spray" at the right of my photo.
It's a real statement piece!!!

Next I brushed all the chippie pieces with some Dylusions spray including
this gorgeous "Frame - Jenna" which I cut into pieces & layered 
behind my photo.


This "Jenna Frame" is so beautiful & fine & just perfect for drawing the eye to my photo.



In the pic above you can see where I have used a piece from the "Mini Flourish Bits Set".


I have added some leaves from the "Lattice Leaf Set" which I simply coloured
with a black ink pad. Too easy. 

Well thats all for today. See you back here again soon
 with another project to share.

Until then.
