My Guest DT Reveal for 13 Arts
"Happy Moments"

Hi there, thanks for calling by. Today I have my very first reveal as a
 "Guest Designer" for 13 Arts challenge blog. 
If you are not familiar with 13 Arts let me enlighten you.
They are a wonderfully arty monthly challenge, which is
 owned & operated by the super talented Aida Domisiewicz.
Aida also has a great online store & she stocks some really 
amazing products, all of which are available for international shipping.
Check their store out  HERE 

For this layout I have used lots & lots of wonderful 13 Arts products, including....
Zestaw "All is love"
This fabulous "Love Letters" Paper range
Ayeeda Modelling Paste
Ayeeda Paints in both Raspberry & lemon
Ayeeda Pearl Pink Mist
Ayeeda Micro Beads in two sizes
Ayeeda Flower  Stamen Sprays 

Love their modelling paste. Such beautiful texture, & as for their pearl spray,
I love this product so much that I have since put in an order for the full
range of colours. I would definitely say the nicest spray I have ever used.
The colours are just devine.

Here you can see some of their "Micro Beads" that I have added to the
 background & then finished off with some spray.

I have used the Ayeeda paints to colours both the chipboard, the resin keyhole
as well as the flower stamen sprays which were white & I painted them lemon.
Too easy.

All of my chipboard here is from the latest new release from 2 Crafty chipboard.
I have also added some of the really fine Ayeeda Micro Beads to the ends of
some of the chippie flower sprays for a touch of realism.
I have applied a coat of the Ayeeda Modelling Paste to
the chippie leaves before painting them.

I will be back again with another project for 13 Arts next month.
Make sure you check out their monthly challenge & perhaps win 
yourself some great 13 Arts products.

Hope you like these products as much as I have enjoyed
using them.

My 2 Crafty November DT Reveal
Part Two

Thanks for stopping by. 
Today I have part two of my monthly DT reveal for 2 Crafty chipboard.
I have gone with lots of background treatments &
as I often do, when I use bright coloured & busy backgrounds I like to
balance it with plain black chipboard. I think it makes a great contrast
that really highlights the chippies to their full potential.

I have started off  by using another of the NEW 2 Crafty titles, 
 "Beautiful-Loopy Font".
I do so love this font.

Next I have used yet another of the NEW release pieces. This time I have used a couple
of the pieces from the "Leafy Shrub Set 1". My goodnes you are going to get sick 
of seeing these as I just know I am going to put them on everything, & why not,
they are just DEVINE. So fine & delicate & not to mention beautiful &
you get three or four pieces in a multi pack.

I have also tucked in a couple of the
2 Crafty "Gears" and also a couple of the "Giant Gears".
These both come in a multi pack so you have lots to play with.

I have finished of with lots of beautiful flowers including a selection  from Green Tara as
well as one of their new Washi Tapes.

  Well thats all from me today. I do hope you love these NEW release
chipboard pieces from 2 Crafty chipboard as much
as I do. Thanks again for stopping by & for any comments
you may care to leave.
Have a great day. Until next time.

My November 2 Crafty DT Reveal
Part One

Hello there, thanks for stopping by. Today I have part one of my
 monthly DT reveal for 2 Crafty Chipboard. For those of you that
 know me well, you will know that I don't "do blue". Aqua yes but blue never. 
So I challenged myself to step out of my comfort zone.

As the main feature on this layout I have used some of the NEW release chippie pieces
from 2 Crafty Chipboard.  They do a new release every six to eight weeks. We are so
lucky.  I have started  off with this magnificent "Circular Leafy Frame". I adore this piece.
I have cut the side off of the circle as if it were hanging over the edge of the page.

I have also used one of their NEW titles "Cherish".
 This is my all time favourite font.

At the top of my circular frame I have also added a piece of foliage
from another NEW pack, the "Leafy Shrub Set 2".
This NEW foliage is just gorgeous, so delicate & pretty.

If you want to read about the techniques I have used on my chipboard,
all of the details are up on the 2 Crafty blog

Finishing off with a selection of gorgeous flowers , including this stunning white one, 
roses, rosebuds, leaves & lace from Green Tara of course.

Stay tuned for part two of my monthly reveal.
Until then.

My November DT Reveal
Scrap Around the World Challenge Blog

Hi there, thanks for calling by.
Today I have my November DT reveal for 
challenge blog.
This months challenge is hosted by DT member Leonie Neale-Dawson
& she has given us this fabulous "Mood Board".
There is also a sketch  which is optional.

Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like, 
using one image, several of them, all of them or even just 
one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!  
 Please do let us know HOW YOU WERE INSPIRED!! 

I have taken my inspiration from the colours of the dripping paint & also
the drips themselves. I was also inspired to use a heart
& some foliage also drawn from the mood board.
I didn't use the optional sketch.
So inspirational Leonie, thank you so much for
such a fabulous board.

All of these gorgeous chipboard pieces including the
title, foliage, bird cage, bird, bird house, fecing wire & heart
are all from 2 Crafty Chipboard.

All of my beautiful flowers & Washi Tape are from Green Tara.

I hope I have inspired you to join in this months challenge.
There are lots of great prizes too.
Until next time.
