Layout and Journal Page from Athanasia

"Love The Sound Of Silence"

'The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between' - W.A.Mozart
This is an amazing quote I always have in mind when I'm playing the piano.
As a musician I love making projects about music, so I decided to make
 one with this favorite quote of mine. 

For my page I used the word "love" as the main title, which I cut from the "love border".
I really like the calligraphy style of it and I think it was the perfect size for the tittle.
I altered it with black embossing powder and placed it vertically to match the whole 
vertical flow of the page.

 I also used some pieces from the "6x6 'Moroccan Panel" in order to give texture and
 interest to the background. I absolutely love this design. It matches with any kind of
style and it is very easy to cut into pieces and use them on your projects. I used both
 black and white gesso and silks paints to alter them.

This big key from the "Vintage Keys" set was the perfect embellishment to complete my composition, because it represents the key of perfection in what has to do with music.
I painted it with African Jade silk, my favorite color, and a little bit of black and white gesso.

"She Designed A Life She Loved"

My second project for this month is a page from my black journal.
I wanted to keep it simple, so I decided to use only 3 chipboard pieces, colors
 and shiny flakes, and I think I found the perfect chipboard pieces to picture this beautiful quote.

I used a butterfly from the 'Marriane's Butterflies',  a piece of 'Square Collage Panel'
 and a bulb of the 'Light Bulbs' set. First I cut the butterfly in three pieces
(center and two wings) and glued it on the light bulb. Then I glued the light globe
 onto a piece of the square panel and that transformed the butterfly-bulb !!!
I colored all the chipboards with silks, a small amount of primary elements and
 finally some splashes of white gesso.

For more inspiration, here is an older page from my black journal.
I used the same 3 chipboard sets, plus an arrow from the the 'Mini Fast Forward Arrows' set.

 I hope you got some ideas on how to use and alter your 2Crafty chipboard pieces
on your projects!
Have a lovely crafty day!
