My July DT Reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard
Part One
"This Face Makes My Heart Smile"

Hi there friends, thanks for calling by.
Today I have part one of my July DT reveal for
 2Crafty Chipboard to share with you.

 I have based this layout on the current sketch challenge over at
To see a full 13arts product list used-scroll to bottom of post.

2Crafty Chipboard used...
11" Tahnya's Border
Element Set #1
This Heart - title
Tiny ATC Hearts & Stars

  I have kept this layout very monochromatic with just a little silver for contrast.

My first step was to coat all the chippies with a coat of gesso.
I have used the 2Crafty  11" Tahnya's Border vertically.

I have then painted it with some 13arts Ayeeda paint in Old Silver & while it was
wet, I sprinkled on some lovely fine glitter. Looks really sparkly in real life.

For my "title" & also the little "ATC Hearts" after a coat of gesso I then
 simply painted them with some Ayeeda's silver acrylic paint mixed with some of their navy blue
mist mixed in, to get the colour I was after. I then followed that up with a brush
over with some water to wash it out slightly & make it a little uneven.

I have done a mixed media background using various 13arts products, 
as well as spraying my flowers to get just the right colour.

Lastly I have treated a piece of the "Elements Set #1" the same as the
 Tahnya's Border. I cut it in half so that I could run it down the side of my page.
13arts Texture Paste
