August Layouts by Rachael Funnell

"Love my Mum"
 
Hi there, Rachael with you to share two layouts I created for August.
First up is this layout of  my mother & I... Would you believe I have used
 six different pieces of chipboard on this 1st page..... A couple pieces are 
from the Mother's Day mini release...


Gave this "Love my Mum" title a coat of gesso, then added some pink glitter. 
I added a bit of pink glitter to the other chipboard pieces on this layout to tie it 
all together..... I think the end result looks FANTASTIC!
 

Did the same with this foliage piece from the Foilage set 2.


 Cut up some of the Heart Clumps then inked it black..


One of my faves is the Chained hearts.... 
Gave this  a coat of modeling paste to give it some added texture,
 then a coat of peach paint..


 I cut up this strip from the Mixed border pack & inked it with some pink ink.


 
 
 
In this day & age selfies are big.... Even more so with the kids....
2 Crafty Chipboard has this FANTASTIC "Selfies word pack"! 
& I just had to create this next page!  :)
 
"The Selfie"
 
 I just love finding these sort of photos on my phone! 
 
2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I have used:

 To start off I gave all pieces I have used on this layout a coat of gesso.
I then gave a coat of gel medium to The Selfie words, &
finished it off by adding some teal ink.



After the gesso dried, on the Interlocking grid Panel, dabbed some
 Antiqued bronze Distress paint & cut it into smaller pieces & placed
 them randomly onto my page,...
 

I have added some aged black embossing enamel to the Chevron bits & the
leaf part of the Leafy shrub from set 1, finished them off by lightly dabbing
 a little gesso just to tone down the black a little more....

 
Thank you for stopping by & I hope I inspired you in some way...  :)
