2 Crafty Chipboard used..
  Key to my Heart title 
Frame heart String
Bird set
 Funky Arrow
 Bead hanging hearts
  Foliage set 1

I started off with giving a coat of gesso to most of these chipboard pieces...
  Then decided that the bird, the bead hanging hearts & the title Key to my Heart 
  looked good left as is...

After the gesso dried on the Foilage, from Foilage set 1 then gave it a good coat of
 texture paste & finish it with by adding some teal & green colors!

Around my photo, I've used the larger Frame heart string... Once the coat of 
gesso dried  I then added some pink to the frame!

I inked this Funky Arrow with Silver ink & it ended up getting a few white splatters, 
Which I  ❤️  the end result!!


My second layout ...

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
which include a couple of the new released pieces
Fine word set 1– Cherish 
Humming bird 
Arrowed Heart 
Circle dot frame
Beaded heart border
I Sooo ❤️ the Fine words... I started off with adding a coat of gesso to the 
 Fine word - Cherish
then a coat of gel medium & the finish with some pink mist spray...
Gave a coat of gesso to this Circle dot frame & finished it with a few pastel color crystals!
I think it looks SO PRETTY....

Another new FAVORITE of mine from the new released range is the GORGEOUS
 Humming bird  SO pretty & delicate!!  
I started with a VERY light coat of gesso & finished it off with a rainbow of watercolors....
 VERY HAPPY with how it turned out...  :) 

Once the coat of gesso dried on this Beaded heart border, cut it in half
 & placed it either side of my page....

 2016 has been inked with some silver ink, Arrowed Heart with some light purple ink!

Just before I go today!
I thought I would also share this ATC that I created as part of my DT work for
 More Than Words - Mini Challenge.. 
I have used a Bubble Word - Fun & gave it a coat of gesso then while still wet added 
some pink glitter & finished with adding to the back, a layer of black cardstock so that the
 word FUN would stand out more... 

'Fun Times'
