March Project Shares by Tracee Provis

"Life Is Wonderful"

My best friends son recently had a baby and so I thought I would create a page for her. 
I used only a small amount of patterned paper and a mixed media background to allow
 my chipboard pieces to be the main focus of my page, apart from the photo of course.

But before we get started
Please remember while you are here  to become a blog follower

 for a great chippie prize pack.



For my "title" chippie I simply inked it directly onto the raw chipboard, this allows the
 chipboard to absorb the ink slightly and gives a deep colour to it. I used "Triangles" to
 create some movement to my page and I covered these with patterned paper.


I used the words "Father & Son" from the "Family" word pack, I gave them the same
 coating of ink as I did on the "Life Is Wonderful" title. I then adhered them to a triangle
 and I cut some small pieces of the "Fine Heart Border" strips to underline these.

2 Crafty Chipboard Used:

Fine Heart Border Strips
Family Word Pack
Triangles
Life Is Wonderful Title
Handrawn Hearts

"The Mother Of All Selfies"

On my last visit with Debbi Tehrani we were determined to get plenty of photos to scrap,
 so we went on a bit of a selfie spree.Some worked, some failed and then you had some
 that just made you cry with laughter. Because I had just used the "Family Word Pack" 
 on my last layout it gave me the idea to use the Mother word in my title on this page.


I wanted to add a bit of sparkle to my page and so I took out my embossing powders, 
I used 3 different gold embossing powders for the "Deer Head" and Selfie word, that 
comes from the "Selfie Word Pack". On the "Crowns" I just used 2 of the powders 
to make them gold but not quite as sparkly. I painted the "Dainty Alphabet" letters
 with acrylic paint and then clear embossed over them.


I used the same paint and emboss treatment on the camera from the "Mini Cameras Set",
 to finish it off I added a small clear enamel dot. I did some handwritten journaling on
 the journaling card but why is it we never like our own handwriting?
