My May 2 Crafty Chipboard Shares

Hello I'm here with you today to share a couple of things I've been working on recently for 2Crafty Chipboard.

"I Love You"

2Crafty Chipboard used:
"Alpha Set 1"
"Soft Feathers"
"Card Sentiments"
"Fencing Wire"
"Tiny Film Strips"

This little frame piece is created using a piece of Kraft paper. I began by writing the word love all over it in black and white ink.

 I stacked my pieces up on to the Kraft paper bit by bit. The "Fencing Wire" is painted white and then brushed over lightly with a small amount of black to give it a galvanized affect.

 The "Tiny Film Strip" I have left raw to compliment the Kraft colour.

 The sentiment is made up of a collection of chipboard letters and words combined with the writing of "love" in the background.

The piece id finished off with the focus piece, a "soft feather" from my favourite feather set. I simply painted it white and then stamped some script over it. I also added an actual nib to make it a quill.
I love the depth of this frame. I picked it up from K-Mart or somewhere like that for only about $4. It makes a really nice little piece once filled with gorgeous chippy.

My next creation is a layout I designed in purples, pinks and teal.

"Just The Girls"

2Crafty Chipboard used:
"Number Panels"
"6" Revolution Circles"
"Just The Girls"

 I have to say purple, pink and teal are not colours I normally reach for but I wanted to give it a go. I began by creating a pinky purple background and then covered the "Number Panel" with white tissue paper and then stamped over it with black script stamp. Later I added some more teal over the top.

 I used two of the circles from the "6" revolution circle" packs. I simply painted them teal but later I added some white over the top to soften them slightly.

 I used each one to frame the area where my photos would go.

 I separated the title "Just the Girls" so I could place half in one circle and the other half in the other, spreading out the balance of the layout. Again I painted them teal but so that they would stand out, I didn't soften them with any white.

Thank you for popping in to see my creations.
