Beauty Is An Attitude, According to Melenia Agapides

Hello, hello!
I hope you are having a wonderful time and you have 
being busy creating beautiful things!
Today is my debut here at 2 Crafty Chipboard as a 
Resident Guest Designer 
and I'm very excited about it!
So I would like to share with you two layouts.
My first page
"Beauty is an attitude"
(surely it is!)
features the GORGEOUS 2 Crafty 
Angie's Vines
Groovy Flowers
Word circles
As soon as I first touched the delicate Angie's Vines
I knew that these were meant for a soft and aethereal, feminine page.
I actually based the design of my layout on them!
I inked them with white chalk ink and then sprinkled them with glitter!
I combined them with ribbon, fiber and flowers on a textured background,
which was made with modelling paste and masks.
Now aren't these wonderful word circles PRECIOUS? 
I have used them already to title my pages! 
This one is painted with gesso and glittered (of course). 
In order to create some contrast, I placed it on the dark fuschia/purple flower.
I added the 2 Groovy Flowers at the corners of my big composition, 
after I gessoed and painted them pink and sprinkled them with glitter too.  
You can see how these magical flowers 
have become one with the textured background!
Now the second page is DT work for the ScrapsNPieces challenge blog
Its name is


It features the awesome 2Crafty chipboard
 Skeleton Leaves and Francesca's Journal Frames!

As you see the leaves are a distinctive feature of the page,
because their roundness and their thin straight lines are counter
balancing the rough shapes that are dominant on my page.

The frame is so delicate, I just had to add it - it's a feminine page after all!
It draws the attention to the photo very discreetly.

2 Crafty chipboard used:
Angie's Vines
Groovy Flowers
Word circles
Skeleton Leaves
Francesca's Journal Frames
So I hope you'll like my pages and be inspired by them!
