Some Inspiration from
"Resident Guest Designer"
Melinda Thompson

Hi Everyone,
Well its my turn again to share with you today a layout I created with
some gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard. 
"Your Smile"
On this layout I am using 3 gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard pieces.
- Tattered Hearts
- Vintage Birds
- Floral Branch
Below is the one of the Tattered Hearts which has so many different layers on it. I wanted to
 go for a two toned look so I primed it first with Gesso, then it has a layer of modelling paste
 for extra dimension, I then sprayed it with some Vintage Pink Tattered Angels Glimmermist,
then using my finger I rubbed some Turquoise Shimmerz in random places and lastly
I inked the edges using a chalk ink pad. 

The same techniques were used for the Vintage Bird, although he got a little extra
sparkle and I added some glitter to his tail :)

I chose to keep using the same techniques for all 3 pieces of chipboard so they would
all blend in.  But in this case with the Floral Branch, I only applied everything VERY lightly
as I wanted the engraved detail of the chippie flowers to still be visible.  I added
 some Liquid Pearls in the centre of the flower for added detail.

Thanks for stopping by the 2Crafty Blog today and letting me share my project.  
Until next time
