"A Self Portrait"
Another Design Team Creation For
2Crafty Chipboard

Hi there 2Crafty friends. Today I have a "self portrait" layout to share
with you, & as always, I have used lots of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard.
I think I might make this my new profile pic perhaps 
now that I have changed my hairstyle ??

2Crafty Chipboard Used...

Florence Swirl Set
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Set
"Today title from the Fine Word Set #3 
6" Bubble Grid Panel

I started off with a heavily textured mixed media background
with lots of stamping..

Next up I created lots of layers underneath my photo.

Next step was deciding what chipboard pieces to use??
If you would like to read more about what I used etc on the chipboard,
pop over to the 2Crafty blog where I have gone into a bit more detail.

Lastly I added lots of flowers, some of which I sprayed with some
Lindy's sprays in the same colour as my background.

All finished.

I hope you like this one.

Until next time.

My Upcoming
Toowoomba Card Class

Hi there paper friends.
Today I wanted to show you the cards I am teaching at my
upcoming Master Class in Toowoomba in Queensland
on Saturday 4th May

This is a great TECHNIQUE class. Jam packed with lots
of techniques, tips & tricks, so if you like learning NEW
techniques, then you will surely love this class.

We will be making this gorgeous little Gift Bag,
a lovely 3D Dress Card as well as this Easel Card
on which we will be hand sculpting some beautiful flowers
using some fabulous Heartfelt Creations Dies & techniques.

We are going to be using beautiful Lemoncraft papers.

They have changed the seating around & opened up an extra area
so they can accomodate some extra people, but unfortunately
it is capped at 30 people so be quick as I believe there are
only three seats left !!

For bookings, price etc,

The Vintage Chicks Club will also have their fabulous
POP UP SHOP there too. They carry so many amazing international
brands of absolutely everything you could ever want.

It is going to be a fabulous day.

Until next time.

More Design Team Inspiration for
49and Market

Hi there paper friends, back with you today with more 49and Market inspiration.
For this layout I have used papers from an earlier 49and Market collection called
  "Vintage Artistry".
 I was always a big fan of that collection.

After first starting off with a mixed media background, I did some
paper tearing & curling & then set about layering underneath the photo.

The chipboard pieces I have used are from 2Crafty Chipboard.

Then the fun part begun with adding lots of gorgeous 49and Market
 flowers from their many gorgeous collections, including some of their NEW
soon to be released ones too. I also sprayed some of the white ones blue
using some Lindy's sprays. 
To finish off I added some of their NEW Wishing Bubbles as well.
49and Market Products Used....

Vintage Artistry – “Flora & Fauna” paper-  B side

Vintage Artistry – “Seeds of Love” paper 
Stargazer Flowers in Blue
New Mini Series #1 Flowers #MS-88329-white 
Garden Vine in white (I sprayed it blue)
Wishing Bubbles - Soda Pop

Well thats all I have for you today. I do hope you like my
layout & that I have inspired you in some small way.
Until next time....
