Inspiration With Trudi

"Oh Darling" 
Hi Everyone!
Trudi back with you today on the 2Crafty blog.

February is the month of love and for my project 'Oh Darling', I have gone for a touch of  'love' sentiment with dedicating it to my two girls.  Some lovely chipboard elements have been incorporated including Lace Heart Frame , Stitched Lace Border , and Handrawn Flowers with a little background mixed media fun, fussy cut elements and bling.
I just adore the delicateness of the Handrawn Flowers and leaves. I inked them with black to keep the pieces clean and simple and create a silhouette effect over the other elements.
A touch of bling and sparkle was added to the Lace Heart Frame with glitter 
sprinkled over the top of metallic gold paint.
A small piece was trimmed from the Stitched Lace Border, painted gold
 and tucked under the photo.

Stitched Lace Border
For my next project, I have incorporated  
Brick Panel, Brick Wall, Iron Gates, Large Leafy Vine and Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful word title.  I created a pretty garden scene for this one.
"Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful"
The Brick Panel was cut up and pieces added randomly to the background patterned paper. 
The Large Leafy Vine creates the base for a few of the fussy cut elements. 

A few segments were removed from the Brick Wall and adhered over the the Brick Panel.
A section has been removed from one of the Wrought Iron Gates and sits along the photo.  

Most of the chipboard elements have been painted white.
Be Your Own Kind Of Beautiful title was dabbed with metallic gold paint
 with white paint then lightly dabbed over the top.

Your layouts are gorgeous! The delicate flowers and leaves on the first l/o look amazing! Wowsers on your second l/o - love the way you broke up the brick panel. It's just filled with shabby goodness.
