Hello! I'm here with you today with my first layout for 2Crafty Chipboard.
My first creation doesn't really have a title so I named it after the gorgeous "Hibiscus Frame" I used on it.
2 Crafty pieces used:
I have loved this "Hibiscus Frame" ever since I first saw it and I've been waiting for the perfect time to use it. The other night I had a vision of a water color flower surrounded by a circle of flowers and it suddenly came to me!
I trimmed some of the extra flourishes and foliage from it. Only because they wouldn't fit on the page due to where I had chosen to create my water colour flower.
I was determined I was going to leave the frame in it's raw chipboard state but after I added some Perfect Pearls mist I realised it needed to be greyish blue, so I gave it a coat of grey water colour paint. I'm so glad I did because it made the details in the hibiscus flowers just POP!
I added some extra foliage using a piece from the "Wildflower Set". I wanted to replace the bits I had trimmed but I couldn't get them to sit where I wanted so this was the next best thing to add that extra bit of trim. I simply painted them white and added flecks of grey paint.
Finally I added a gorgeous little "Delicate Butterfly". This comes in a set of two. I used the smaller one in the set. I painted it white, gave it a coating of clear ink and sprinkled some Patina Metallic Melts over the wings. Once it was dry, I added some coordinating water colours and a touch of white gesso to give it highlighted areas.
Thank you for popping by. I'll be back tomorrow with my second share!
