My Firsts Layouts by Catherine Giguère

"Always Follow Your Dreams"
Hello everyone! I'm so glad today has finally arrived.
 I have been waiting for this day for weeks now. 
Here's my first official post for 2Crafty.
 What an honor to join this wonderful team!

For my first layout, I used the "dreamcatcher" chippies and for 
the title , "Always Follow Your Dreams".

 I applied a coat of white gesso on all my chipboards.
 For my title, the 3 coats of gesso was all it needed and I was done with it. 
On my dreamcathers, I applied yellow and turquoise mists & then on top
 that I applied a little  white gesso diluted with water.

"Timeless Beauty"

For this layout I have gone with a different look.

 I put 3 coats of white gesso on all the chipboards.
Then, I put a little bit of purple ink, the same as I 
 used to do my background, on the chippies.
This just added a slight hint of colour.

On my title, I simply applied 3 coats of purple ink to make it pop.
