Layout and Journal Page by Athanasia

'Enjoy Every Moment'

Hello 2Crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing a fun and colorful layout.
I had this cute photo with my daughter playing and painting at school, 
so I wanted to make a cute and playful page.
I chose from the Word Circles Set 1 the words 'smile', 'happy' and 'today' -
they are so cute for this page and I love how they look in the composition!
I also used a butterfly and a doodle frame.

In order to alter my chipboard pieces, I used watercolor paints 
H2Os and I painted them with a paintbrush.

For the circle words I also spread some embossing powder here and there to make
it look even more interesting. I really love the result!

For the doodle frame I used the same colors I used on the rest of the chipboard pieces.
I cut it in half and placed the two parts in different spots to make the page look more funky.

'Collect Moments' 

 I love using chipboard pieces on my journal pages 
because they are flat and make the perfect choice for clusters.
For this page I used a flower of the Gigi's set, a corner from the Elegant Set
 (which I cut in two pieces and used one of them) and
some arrows from the Fast and Forward Set.

I painted all the chipboard pieces with H2Os watercolors  with a paintbrush.
Watercolors are very easy to use on chipboard and give a very beautiful look,
A bright color and a little bit of shine.
