April Reveal and a Video by Keren Tamir

"Dream Big"

This is my first reveal this month for 2 Crafty. I got inspired by the Prima BAP for April and a challenge at Shimmerz paint's blog.

I used some 2 Crafty circles to add some layers to the background paper. I covered them with blue and green Shimmerz: Sea foam, bamboo leaf and olive branch. I let the leftover ink drip onto the page.

I used the new 2 Crafty lavender shrubs to add dimension and direction to the layout. I also covered them in blue and green Shimmerz: Sea foam, bamboo leaf and olive branch.

Finally I used the Dream Big title from 2 Crafty. I inked it with turquoise and green chalk ink. I tried to blend the two colors together.

I complimented the colors with some coral hues from these beautiful Prima flowers. 

Papers: Prima
Flowers: Prima
Chipboard: 2 Crafty
gesso, cheesecloth
Shimmerz: Sea foam, bamboo leaf, olive branch
Resins: Prima

Shadow Box Frame

Here is my second project for  my 2 Crafty reveal.
I also have an instructional video on how to make this shadow box frame (see below)

I used the 2 Crafty 11" Nella Frame for this project as well as the Love title, a clock face frame and 2 vintage clock hands.

For the papers and the flowers I used Prima products.

The hanging metal embellishments are a variety of products and jewelry I had in my stash.

Here is the video on how to make this Shadow box above

Finally I want to show you a layout I created earlier this month using a couple of 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces.
The first one is the title Love you and the second one is the Maria Frame

I hope you enjoyed my creations this month

Have a fabulous day
