"My Girl Mia"
Part Two of My DT Reveal for
2Crafty Chipboard

Hi there paper friends, thanks for calling by.
Today I have part two of my January design team reveal for
For this layout I have gone with this super cute pic of my
gorgeous Grandaughter Mia.



2Crafty Products Used...

My Girls-title (I snipped off the S)
Doodled Frames
Decorative Rod Set #1
Arrows Funky Set
Gears & Cogs Set

First up I snipped off the "S" from the end of the title to suit my layout.

Now this is a super easy layout to create.
After firstly cutting my photos to fit this gorgeous new frame,
set them aside for the moment .

First up collect a hole heap of left over bits of 2Crafty chippies
& just start off by gluing them all down.

Bits of this & that & stick them all down.

Next I sponged on a fairly thick coat of gesso over everything.
Either dry naturally & dry off with a heat gun.

Pick at least two or more  colours of mist (any brand) & apply to all the
chippie bits & background using a soft paint brush.
Viola. All done. Quite an effective technique & a great way
to use up all those left over bits, oh & don't you just LOOOOVE
these NEW "Doodled Frames" & "Decorative Rod Set".
I certainly do.

Well thats all for today.
Until next time

Part One of my January DT Reveal for
2Crafty Chipboard

Hi there friends, Happy New Year to you all.
Thanks for stopping by.  Today I have my January design team reveal for
featuring a Christmas layout that was a commission piece for the Christmas edition
 of Scrapbooking Memories magazine here in Australia. It's on page 37.
(That is our own fellow DT member Fiona Paltridge on the cover too)

 2Crafty Products used..

Christmas Mini Word Pack
Holly Branch
Holly Leaves
Flourish Ornament Border
Tahnya's 6" Border
Fine Snowflakes

I cut some pieces off the 2Crafty Flourish Ornament Border,
painted them green & then gave them a lick of green Stickles glitter.

All the other 2Crafty chippie pieces were simply heat embossed
with gold embossing powder for a real festive feel.

These little 2Crafty Mini Christmas Words were just the 
perfect thing for my title.

I do so love this 6" Tahnya's Border layered up with
the Holly Leaves & Holly Branch.
2Crafty just do so many beautiful chipboard pieces.

Lots of glitter & sparkle here to create a festive mood.
I have applied gold glitter to my background with a stencil too.

Well I hoped you like it & I will be back in a couple of days with more.
