My 2Crafty Chipboard DT Reveal
Part One
" Adore & Cherish"

  Hi there 2Crafty fans. Thanks for calling by.
Today I have part one of my October DT reveal for
 I have chosen to do a monochromatic colour scheme &
 I have based this layout on the current Prima BAP sketch challenge.
(To see the full Prima products list scroll down to the bottom)
Prima October BAP Sketch

As well as lots of gorgeous Prima products, I have used the
fabulous 2Crafty chippie pieces shown below.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used..
Celia's Flourish Frame
Leafy Shrub Set #2
Mini Words #2

 Here you can see I have used a couple of pieces of the "Leafy Shrub Set #2".
This set is definitely one of my go to pieces. 

All of the chippies I have used on this layout were firstly coated with gesso.
Then on this piece I coloured it by adding layers of Prima sprays & mica powders
until I got the colour I was after. Then I brushed a little more gesso on for highlights.

I coloured some flowers up to match my layout using some
 Prima sprays & mica powders.

I have used both the words "Cherish" & Adore". for my title.
Both of these pieces are from the "Mini Words Set #2".

 Both the words & this gorgeous "Celias Flourish Frame" were just simply
 given a lick of white acrylic paint. Too easy.
I think the stark white makes a nice contrast to the monochromatic
colour of the mixed media background.

After firstly coating my background with gesso, I then used a fab Prima stencil,
 followed by layers of Prima sprays & mica powders until I achieved the
 exact colour I was after.

Prima Products Used 
Prima Art Basics Heavy Gesso & Light Texture Paste
Prima "Magnolia" Stencil,
Prima Color Bloom Sprays Plumeria, Cotton Candy & Pastel Iris.

(Most of the flowers but I don't know the names as they are from
 older Prima collections & I have coloured them to match my layout)
