Melenia's Shares for November

Hello everyone!
It's Melenia with you today, to share a layout I created
with the beautiful Skeleton Leaves
Breanna's Swirl and the gorgeous loopy-font title "Favourite"
(plus 2 more pages, which I have put 2 Crafty Chippies in).

"My Favourite Flower"

As you see I have used mixed media techniques on my layout,
and I added the big pieces of my chipboard in black,
for contrast!

The Breanna's swirl was gessoed and sprayed with black ink, but not in all over.
A few touches of gesso on it, to help it become a harmonious part of my big cluster.

Now the title is the highlight of the layout 
and I definitely wanted to make it pop as much as possible.

Since we are talking about a flower, I couldn't omit the Skeleton Leaves,
which makes the leaves of my flower although the flower in the 
photo doesn't have leaves.
The flowers were sprayed with a 13 Arts Pearl Mist, 
for extra glow.

I also wanted to show you my of 7 Dots Studio layouts.
The first one was for the Sketchabilities challenge blog,
in which I used the lovely "Indian Feathers" and .. what else? 
Of course a "Groovy Flower".

"Looking in a Mirror"

As you see, the colour of the chipboard matched perfectly 
with the colours of my background paper, so I didn't alter them a lot.
I left them  raw & just added green ink to make them part of my clusters.
I sprinkled some glitter on for extra sparkle, like I always do!

The second one was meant for 7 Dots Studio itself.
It features the elegant Geneive Corner and it 's called 


The Geneive Corner was an essential part of my design,
because I wanted it to be the base which 
the whole cluster would be built on. So I painted it
with white paint and then over-loaded it with glitter!
So that's all from me now!
I hope you like my pages and
the way I have incorporated the lovely
2 Crafty Chipboard in them!
