Part Two of My 2Crafty Chipboard July DT Reveal
"Capture, Enjoy, Treasure"

Hi there friends, thanks for calling by.
Today I have part two of my July DT reveal for

These are the 2Crafty chipboard pieces I have used.

Mini Word Set #1
Doodled Corners
Funky Hearts
Retro Flower Stems

All my chipboard pieces were just simply painted with black acrylic paint.
It doesn't get much easier than that. I rather like using black against bright colours.
Makes a good impact & it doesn't necessarily have to be complicated to look good.

The only exception to this was the   Retro Flowers which I tucked in behind my top
flower cluster, & these were just given a swipe of pink ink after being coated with gesso.

I have cut the pair of   "Doodled Corners" in half to arrange them this way.

Lots of stamping & mixed media & I just love these little Mini Words
from the Mini Words Set #1.

Some pretty flowers.

It is a little hard to see but I have also tucked in a Heart  from The Funky Hearts Set.
I covered it in glitter & tucked it in amongst the flowers.

Lots of layering & hey presto, all finished !!

Until next time.

Part One of My July DT Reveal for
2Crafty Chipboard
PLUS July Challenge for Lindy's Stamp Gang"

Hi there 2Crafty fans. Thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part one of my July DT reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard.
 I have used some of their NEW RELEASE chippies. Pop over to their WEBSITE 
& check them out !!! So many yummy things.  

I have based this layout on the current colour challenge over at the
Lindys Stamp Gang Blog.
I have used Lindys Stamp Gang sprays to create my background, including..
Luscious Lime
Pineapple Paradise
Mango Mania
  2Crafty Products Used...
Title - Live Everyday With Intention
Climbing Rose Bush Border
Bird Set
Mini Branches 
For my 2 Crafty title & "Rose Border" I have  simply inked them with black ink.
The  "LIVE" word on this title was firstly given a lick of gesso
followed by some Lindys Stamp Gang Luscious Lime spray
which I painted on with a brush.
I also sprayed a couple of my flowers with the Luscious Lime to match in too.
As you can see I have cut the "Climbing Rose Bush Border" into a
 few pieces so that I could scatter it around my layout.
I have gone with a very bright mixed media background which I think
makes a good backdrop for these "Rose" pieces.

Here I have also used one of these little birds from the new "Bird Set". 

I am really pleased how the background looks with this colour palette.

  Lastly I have used another NEW chippie piece.
The "Mini Branches Set" which I treated the same as the LIVE word.
Well thats all for today. Until next time.
