Always Follow Your Dream ...
By Stephanie Papin

Hello everyone, Stéphanie here with you !
 Today I am very thrilled  to share with you  my first  DT project for 
2 Crafty Chipboard.  I hope you will enjoy it !

  "Always Follow Your Dreams"
 There are so many beautiful chipboard pieces in the 2Crafty range.  My first challenge 
was to choose which beautiful pieces I would choose for my first layout!

In fact, for this layout, I decided to work in the height of my page, 
so I purposely chose a title that occupied a lot of space so that my chipboard would
 play an important role in the layout.
I also wanted to stick a small arabesques on the other side of my layout
it connects my set, and I placed them  so that all my embellishments 
 are placed in a diagonal line.
2Crafty chipboard products used...
Leafy Shrub Set 2 (unit of 3)[m00494] 
 Mini Swirls 1 (units of 3)[atc037]
Always Follow Your Dreams (unit of 3)
On my title, I like to bring color so I moistened my chipboard with water in  
some places with a brush. Before it was dry, I applied a little white liquid ink, 
but only where I put the water. This way my white ink blends well
 and doesn't have sharp edges, but instead it all just blends beautifully. 
 I find it interesting to wet our chipboard with inks or paints as 
 some really beautiful results can be obtained.
I chose to cut out a part of my leaves, so that  I got a straight edge on 
my chipboard to place along the side of my page .
Above you will see I have used 2 of the ATC Swirls, to continue the leafy feel,
using them close to my flowers.

Here is a close up of how the water and paint blended.

I hope you have enjoyed this page, & I look forward to seeing you back here again
 next month for a new project !
