Shabby Chic Layouts
By Keren Tamir

"Always and Forever"

For this monochromatic layout, I used the Floral Branch and the Love Bird Swing. I simply painted them in a tan colored paint and then doodled on them with a brown pen.

As this is a picture of my husband and I, I decided to use the title Always and Forever. I also painted it in light acrylic paint and inked it with brown fluid chalk edger.



I used the Frame round ornate to frame my picture. I covered it with gesso and then stamped it with a script stamp and edged it in black coal fluid edger.

 I used the Chevron border along the page. I primed it with gesso and then covered it in dimensional gel paint by Art Anthology. Then stamped it with a doily pattern.

The last 2 Crafty piece I used was the Cherish title. After priming in gesso, I inked it in red Inka Gold paste.



Yes, that is my husband and I when we got married, 17 years ago. I scanned  the picture (as digital cameras were not available at the time) and I turned it black and white to make it elegant.

I framed the photo in a 2 Crafty Bec's Frame. I primed it with gesso and then covered it with Pewter crackle paint.  I also rolled some of the silver paper at the bottom of the photo as it added to the elegance of the page.

I also used two other chipboard pieces from 2 Crafty. First I added the 1" Hexagons which I primed in Gesso and then covered in silver Pearlescense Acrylic paint.
 Secondly I used the Forever title which I painted in cream colored Acrylic paint.

Hope you enjoyed my creations today. You can also visit me on my blog at:
