June Layouts By Rachael Funnell

Hello 2 Crafty fans, Rachael with you sharing a couple of layouts I created for this month...
Before I continue...
Please remember while your here be sure you have

These are the 2 Crafty chipboard I have used on my first layout

I decided to use up some negative/leftover piece from the 'Chervon bits'..
Gave then a light coat of gesso & cut & layered underneath photo...

 Not to take away any of the details of the arrow & feather from the 'Western set' 
I gave the arrow a light coat of gesso & the feather a light coat of blue ink...

 ATC - Tiny Stars I just inked black so they would stand out a little more!

Added a couple coats of gesso to the loopy font 'Happy' a little blue mist. I still wanted
the blue to be a bit stronger... SO! I colored it with Artline permanent blue maker..
Was very happy (hehehe) how it turned out!

Cut this 'Tattoo Swirl' into 2 pieces, added a coat of gesso & finished it off with a
thick layer of Fabrika Decoru - Texture Paste with sand!


♥ 2 Dance'

For my 2nd layout these are the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used.

After adding a layer of gesso to this '♥ 2 Dance' piece from the '6x6 dance theme sheet'
 I added red using a mist to the ♥ ,  finishing this off with adding some teal ink to the
 bottom half of the word dance!

Gave these Stars which are also from the '6x6 dance theme sheet' a coat of gesso & 
 Fabrika Decoru - Texture Paste with sand! 

This 'Juliet heart' has a coat of gesso & finished it of with some red mist....

I thought this 'Flying Bird' would stand out better sitting on the teal flower with adding
 a coat of gesso! Did the same to the 'Circle Heart frame' that is sitting over the photo!

Adding coat of gesso & Teal, Red & black water colors to finish this 'Wing' ....

To the 'Indian Feathers' & 'Soft Feathers' have a light coat of gesso & then while
 the gesso was still wet added some gold & pink glitter! 

Thank you for stopping by to check out my projects for this month!
Hope you were inspired in someway...  :)
