July Layouts By Valerie Ouellet
PLUS A VIDEO TUTORIAL

 
"Memories"

Hi everyone! Here is my two July layouts with 2Crafty Chipboard.

But before we start...
Please remember while your here be sure you have
become a blog follower & leave a blog comment to
be eligible to go in our monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.

This page started with flowers handdrawn with micron pen and watercolor.
 I love making my backgrounds by myself.


I used "Cassie's Flourishes" that I embossed with black embossing powder.
 I cut some parts of the chippie. 


I added my favorite chippie "Lattice leaves" & painted them
 with two colors of 13arts paints.


I love to use this paint with my chipboard because just one coat is enough.


A little bit of sewing thread and Cuts2luv flair to finish off.


My title is embossed with the same black powder as my swirl. I just cut the 
word magical from the chippie "Magical Memories". I like the small title.

"Magical"

I made the flowers in the background by myself. Here is a video to explain my technique. 

Here is a link to my video tutorial.

I painted my leaves with 13arts paint and I tried to make them real.
This foliage is "Berry Branch".



I used the second part of the chippie "Magical Memories"and embossed it
 with black embossing powder.




 I placed one of "Doily Frame" chippie behind my photo,
