Welcome to our Newest Designer
Rachael Funnell
Rachael's First 2Crafty Design Team Post

 We at 2Crafty are thrilled to be joined by the very talented Rachael Funnell, who
has joined the team as our newest  "Resident Guest Designer"
 I'm sure you'll love her gorgeous creations that she will share here each month.
 We have admired Rachael's work for such a long time and can't believe she is actually
 here to share some wonderful inspiration using our chippies.
So, please welcome Rachael, as she starts off this month for us with a stunning creation.
A BIG Hello to 2 crafty fans!
Rachael Funnell with you today with my first official post as a Resident Guest Designer here at 2Crafty.  Woooohooo!
I just adore 2 crafty chipboard & would like to THANK Vanessa & Di for asking me
 to join such an AWESOME and inspiring team...
OK! So! I'm SUPER excited to share this layout with you all...
2Crafty chipboard I have used:
Bubble grid panel
Circle revolution frames
Tiny feathers
Soft feathers
Word circle set 1 (happy)
& 2015

With the Word circle happy I have given it a coat of gesso ...

   I have cut 3 pieces from the Bubble grid panel inked them with a Fushia pink ink,
added a little gesso to them & then finished off with black splattering.

   I have also given the Circle revolution frames,  Tiny feathers, Soft feathers & 2015
chipboard pieces a coat of gesso before adding some watercolors to them...

I thought adding a little bit of glitter to the tip of this Soft feather would jazzy it up a little.
 I also added some glitter into my background..... I just love how this has turned out!   :) 

That is it from me today, I'll be back next month with some more... 
Have a GREAT day & thanks for stopping by!
Until next time
