By Stephanie Papin

Hello everyone.
 I am  thrilled today to be back again & to show you my latest work 
made with the 2Crafty chipboard.
As so often, this new layout is a girly layout with sweet colors.

2 Crafty chipboard Used
- Adore You
-Lusius Swirl
-Frame Ingrid's

I have used 3 differents chipboards here and I 've placed them
in a horizontal line. I love this Ingrids Frame, it showcases my photo  perfectly.
I never used to put titles on my work but 2 CRAFTY have so 
many fabulous ones to choose from that are just perfect for my work, there are 
truly so many beautiful words in their range, you are sure to find one for your layout!
I love this beautiful portrait of my daughter, & this title was just perfect.
Here, I chose to super impose two slightly different chipboards. The end of the first
  chipboard, on the left, is therefore slightly on my photo. I think it creates continuity.
Besides that, I decided to add different colors on my chipboard. I have worked with 
 the colors that are already on my page. To create my  background, I worked with 
blue, green, and dark gray ink ( and others). So it is also these inks  that I used 
to color my chipboards.  I love to create things that are not united. So on  my 
 chipboards, I have added multiple colors. The advantage of chipboard is that it is
 a  porous material, so the ink enters slowly into the material. Adding 
different colors, I can almost create color gradients, thanks to this materials !
When I use several pieces of chipboard, I like to notice each piece.  Some pieces are a painted with  white ink, a color that contrasts with the rather dark color and that contrasts with my background. And finally I chose to work my last chipboard in a darker colour to create a nice contrast color. 
So this way I have showcased them .

I hope you enjoy this new page, and that  maybe it will also inspire you.  
See you back here again  next month with a new project!
