Stacey's May Inspiration

Hi everyone! 
 Firstly I just want to say how excited I am to be staying on for
  another term with 2 Crafty. 
 I am seriously addicted to these chippies!! 
  Thanks for having me back girls!  I look forward to all of the new inspiration to come.
Welcome to my May post, it's a bit of a long one today with an extra creation!!
My first creation today being super girly and pretty, but has a beachy feel to it.
"Pretty Little Mermaid"

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Leafy Twig Branches
Delicate Butterflies
Corner Rachel's
Pirate Treasure
I covered the Delicate Butterflies with Gesso and then added Shimmerz to them.   I used
some sprays along with the Dazzlerz products.  I layered them with foam tape and pulled
 up the wings so they were 3 dimensional and popping off the page.

I have covered the Ship's Wheel from the Pirate Treasure set with Gesso and then
 applied Modelling paste to it to give some texture.

I applied Gesso once again to the Leafy Twig Branches, added them to my layout and
then blended them into the background with my Shimmerz products.

I layered the Corner Rachel's piece into my floral and shell embellishments.  Once it
 was in place, I applied Gesso to it.  I tried not to get any other mist on it as I wanted
 it to stand out from the background.

My second layout today is something fun of my big boy and me! 
I love the story behind this photo and the pastel colours here.
"Sweet Time"

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Word Circles set 1
Arrow Funky
Tiny Feather Set
Frame Scallop Circle Boarders

I loved this heart arrow from the Arrow Funky set.  I thought it would be perfect to add
 to the end of my handmade arrow.  I propped it up on a straw and gave it a coat of Gesso
 and a light misting of Shimmerz.

I have used another arrow here from the Arrow Funky Set and covered it in mint paint.
  I used the title Sweet from the Word Circles set # 1 , covered in Gesso and
applied mist to it once again.

I have layered in some frames from the Frame Scallop Circle Boarders .  I placed them
 in between my paper layers and under my photo as a photo mat.  I applied Gesso and
 gave it some random sprays of mist in gold and peachy tones.

Lastly I layered a feather from the Tiny Feather Set at the top end of my arrow.  I applied
 some mint paint and dipped the end in some gold glitter.  I wrapped gold thread around
it to keep it in place with the other feather and straw.

Next up is my creation for this months challenge at Scrap Around The World. 
We were invited to be guest designers this month and we all got to play
 with this gorgeous inspiration moodboard  board.

Here is my take on the above moodboard.  I was inspired by the bows,
the colours and of course the GOLD!!!

"Adore You"

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Adore You Title
Tiny Feather Set
Frames Tiny Funky
Light Bulbs
I have covered the Adore You title with red paint and then applied some gold glitter
 to the bottom of the words.

I have painted the Indian Feathers, dipped them in gold glitter and layered them with foam tape. 
I have cut a Frames Tiny Funky into 2 pieces and covered in gold glitter once again.
  I have placed one half to the right of the feathers and the other  half sits under the photo.

I have applied Gesso to the Light Bulb and then added a tiny amount
 of Rub 'n Buff to the centre of the bulb.

Here you can see the other frame under my handmade bow. 

My last share today, I have teamed up with my DT project for Shimmerz this month. 
 I have been wanting to incorporate a Dreamcatcher into a layout for a long while now! 
 I love how it turned out and how it is the main focus of my design.


2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

Circle Revolution Frames
Soft Feather Set
Indian Feathers
I started with the Circle Revolution Frame in the smaller size, I added Gesso to it
 and some Texturez product in Gold Mine.  I had a doily which was the perfect size so
 I threaded some twine all the way around so it would hold the doily in place.  I added the
 handmade flower to the top of the doily along with a couple of other flowers.

The Indian Feathers and Soft Feather Set were layered together along with some plastic feathers.
  I painted them with the Shimmerz products and applied a little glitter to some.  I wrapped
thread and Twine to them so they could be hung off the Circle Revolution Frames.
  I added a few Crystals to the tops to blend in with the blue colour.

The bigger Circle Revolution Frame was layered in between my photo and paper layers.

 Phew, that was a long one today, I hope you liked my creations this month!! 
 Have a wonderful day. 
See you next month.
