My Last 2Crafty Post- Leonie Neal-Dawson

Hello 2Crafty fans. Welcome to my last share on the 
2Crafty Chipboard Design Team.
Thank you so much to Vanessa, Di and all the DT girls,
 I've been privileged to work with over the past nine months.
 The constant inspiration has been just amazing, so thank you very much. :)

My first share today is using lots and lots of cogs and a picture of my eldest Son.

I used these cute cogs and these gears there is also a large section 
of the cog border in amongst all the gears. I painted them various 
colours using paint daubers and then doodled on them with a white gel pen.

I used the 'In the Blink Of An Eye' title painted black and raised off the 
page with some foam adhesive and some more cogs behind it. 

I also used these directional hand tags
 'Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow' 
 as subheadings for my journalling. 

My second layout captures my second son on a peaceful early 
morning run along the beach.

I used the 'Lifes Journey' title and dabbed on some texture paste and 
then swiped the raised texture with a paint dauber before finally 
outlining it with a coloured pen.

I also used one of these lovely chipboard birds in flight on this
 layout using the same technique as for the title.

And the third piece of chipboard I used on this layout were these lovely swirls.
I thought they evoked a quite a nice beachy feel of waves rolling onto the shore.
So perfect for this layout.

And my final layout is a picture of our new puppy who is just the
 cutest thing ever. She has quickly found her way into our hearts forever. 
I used the one of the Tiny Henri frames and the two of the
 Tiny Kathleen frames on this layout.
Painting them with paint Daubers again and then using them to
 place parts of my title.

Thanks so much for your generous and lovely comments on my
 posts here at 2crafty Chipboard.
It's been an absolute pleasure to share my creations using 
2 Crafty Chipboard and I hope I've inspired 
you in some way to get creative with your chipboard.

Leonie Neal-Dawson.
