Tracee's April Shares

"Sweet Treats"
Sweet Treats Scrapbook Page Tracee Provis 2Crafty Chipboard 01

Hi there 2Crafty fans, thanks for stopping by the blog.

Before we get started..

Today I have a couple of layouts to share with you, for my layouts this month have used very
 little patterned paper and just let the chipboard pieces do the talking. I printed out these pics
 of my granddaughter a while back for a project life spread but didn't use them, I used the 
negative piece from the "Polaroid Frame Set" to create a project life style look to my page.

I used some mist on my title piece but it soaked into the chipboard a little too much for my liking,
 so I added some Ranger Crackle Accents to give some texture and shine. For the "Lattice Leaves"
 I gave a coat of gesso then applied 2 different green watercolour pencils by Prima. A simple coat
 of white acrylic paint was added to the today circle from the "Word Circles" set 1. I covered the hearts in some cork and used a fine pen to outline the edges.

For the Polaroid frame I used the new Bo Bunny crackle primer and crackle paste, I mounted
 the whole thing on a piece of journal paper. I used the same Crackle glaze on the
 "ATC Butterflies" and they formed these feathery cracks which I think looks great.

"Live Everyday"

While I had my watercolour pencils out for the last page I thought I would use them to create a background for this page. I drew a rough circle with the pencil then applied some water with
 a brush to make a water colour effect, I did this with 3 different colours and then splattered a
 little of each around the page.

I used sparkly embossing powder on the Live part of my title and the "Diannes Doily piece".
 I was determined to use a few different mixed media items on this page and I got out my 
Mica powders for the rest of the title.

I added a few acrylic flowers that have been in my stash forever, once again I used the 
mica powders on the leaves and they have a super shimmer to them.

I hope you enjoyed your visit with me today and I hope I have given you a few ideas
 to try with your chippies. See you next month.
