Guest Designing With The 2Crafty Chipboard DT Girls At
C.S.I. Blog
"Happiness Is This"

Hello there lovelies, thanks so much for calling by.
Today I have a layout I did as a "Guest Designer" over at CSI blog.
Myself & some of the other DT girls from 2Crafty Chipboard
were invited to be their guest this month & play along with this case file #215.
I immediately loved these colours & this I what I came up with...

The Criteria...
Use all the colours
Use at least 3 things from the "Evidence" list
Us at least one thing from the "Testimony" list

 2Crafty Chipboard Used..
Happiness Is This - title
6" Skeleton Clock Frames
Soft Feather Set
Birdcage #1

All the chippies were firstly given a coat of gesso followed by a
coat of Lindys Stamp Gang sprays which I like to brush on instead of spraying.
Then I always follow this up by brushing over with a little water to create
 a kind of watercolour effect.

I have used all manner of flowers & vines & I have tucked in one of
the little 2Crafty Chipboard "Birdcage Set #1".
How cute is this chippie piece & it comes with the little bird too!!

I painted some Lindys spray onto a few of the flowers to achieve
the exact colour I needed to match the various chippie pieces,
plus it gives them a lovely shimmer too.

These 2Crafty "Skeleton Clock Frames" are one of my favourite
chipboard pieces. I just love to cut them in half & tuck them in here & there.

In this pic you can see the chippie "Feather Set". I think these are a real
statement piece. I painted them white & smeared them with glue & then
sprinkled them with Mica Flakes. I wished you could see just how sparkly 
they are in real life. They look sooo good but it is hard to get the sparkle
 to show in a photo.

Well thats all for today.
See you back here again in a few days with some more inspiration.
