First Reveal for 2 Crafty--Keren Tamir

Keren here, so thrilled to reveal my creations at the 2 Crafty Blog:

For this layout about my daughter's love of horses I used the Horse Riding pack from 2 Crafty.

Horse Riding (units of 3)

I painted the title in Adirondack acrylic paint: Sandal. Then I edged it in brown chalk ink. I used a sponge and dabbed it with watered down fluid acrylic: Yellow Ochre and Quinacridone Gold Hue. I used the same sponging technique to make the large yellow heart in the background. Finally I made lines around both hearts with a brown ink pen.

For the grass clumps I simply painted them in brown acrylic paint. I like how they add volume to the page and set the scene.

Grass Clumps (unit of 3)

For the Old Fence I cut it in half to use on both sides of the picture. I painted it in brown  paint and then added crackle medium. (don't add too much as I found out it doesn't crackle all the way inside if its too thick)
Finally for the horse I dabbed it with Butterscotch Adirondack Acrylic paint dabber and then used the same sponge to add a fur like pattern on the body.

You & Me
For my second layout I used 4 different 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces

For the Lamp Post I covered it in Martha Stewart's white texture paint. Then I edged it in Cocoa colored chalk ink to match the page. I used the same ink for the masking on the layout.

I have also used some beautiful  Green Tara flowers too.

Victorian Lamp Post (unit of 3)

For the You & Me title I painted it with white Gesso. Then using a Crafter's Workshop template, I dabbed blue chalk ink to make the pattern, Then to soften the look I wiped off excess ink with a baby wipe.

You & Me (units of 3)

For the Bird I simply dabbed it roughly with gesso

Birds in Flight (unit of 3) 
Finally for the flourishes I painted them in gesso too and then dabbed them in different places with Blue Adirondack Acrylic Dabber. 

 Flourish2 (unit of 3)
