My More Than Words March DT Reveal
"Your First Breath Took Ours Away"

Hi there peeps, thanks for stopping by the blog.
Today I have my DT reveal for the March challenge over on the

 I have used this pic of my new baby grandson.
This was taken at a professional photo shoot. They have done such a 
beautiful job. He looks adorable.

The word "BLISS" inspired me to use this exquisite photo,
because, after all, he is pure bliss.

Here is the March Challenge Board.
 So the challenge is to be inpired by the word BLISS &
to use GESSO. Too easy.

I have white washed just about everything on my page with gesso to create
a lovely soft look.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Angel Wings
Fine Leafy Bush
Bubble Clumps
Your First Breath-title

After lots of background mixed media and a wash of watered down
aqua mist applied with a paint brush I then set about layering up the photo.

This magnificent "title" was firstly coloured with some grey ink 
followed by a little random gesso wiped over just to tone it down.

Next up I have layered the gorgeous "Angel Wings" & some "Bubble Clumps" 
 underneath my photo. These were coloured with some aqua mica powder
 followed with a couple of dabs of glitter Stickles.

Lots of lovely laces were also wiped over with gesso before I added a
little colour to them also. Flowers teamed with micro beads help
create a lovely background for my photo.

Well thats my take on the March challenge.
Hope you get some inspiration by it &
up for grabs too.

Until next time.

  8. Hi!! That's a gorgeous layout!! Can you tell me where I can get that "your first breath..." quote chipboard. I can't find it anywhere! It's not in scrapbook diaries anymore. I guess I could use my silhouette to cut it out of heavy card stock? What do you think??
