Hello lovely peeps. How exciting is this? My first official 2Crafty Chipboard gig and it's as part of the Scrap Around the World June Guest Design Team. I've been lucky enough this month to be asked to do two pages for Di Garling's amazing Mood Board. This is my first one.
And this is the amazing Mood Board that Di has created. I LOVE yellow so this one was really easy to play with. Especially paired with the black.
I took my inspiration this time around from the word LOVE and the beautiful yellow flowers. This is a layout of my little Sis. The background paper I have used is a piece designed by Stephanie Wheeler for Cocoa Daisy "Stardust"
It has the best yellow lines on it that complimented the mood board perfectly.
My 2Crafty Chipboard pieces include:
|Assorted Arrows, Polaroid Assortment of Frames and Chevron Bits|
I've covered the Chevron bits all differently. The yellow one is covered with a lovely flower patterned paper. I've used the same paper to back my photo. \It adds an element of softness to the page without actually adding any flowers. The next two little chevron bits are simply painted with black Gesso but the third one is also covered with Tinby Designs "Metallic Melts". these melts are an amazing thick gritty embossing powder that give real dimension to the chevron.
The assorted arrows are all treated with a different medium. Some are painted with black Gesso, others are painted with white. the white ones are also stamped on using my graph stamp and Black Memento ink. The Yellow arrow is covered in modelling paste to give it a rough look and then coloured with water paint.
I loved adding these polaroid frames from 2Crafty Chipboard. they look awesome! Again I've treated one with black Gesso similar to the arrows then added Metallic Melts while the white one has a light coating of modelling paste and then stamped over while still slightly wet with my graph stamp and black ink.
The Chevrons help to draw the eye around and down the page. Here I've made them stand out with standard black Gesso but covered the last one with the flowered yellow paper, tying the whole page in together.
I really enjoyed putting this page together. It's the first time I've had a chance to play with the 2Crafty Chipboard and I think I'm addicted!!
I hope you join in with the challenge over at Scrap Around the World and I hope you've enjoyed seeing how I've used the 2Crafty Chipboard.
Thanks for popping by.
