January Inspiration By Debbie Burns

Hi everyone!
 Debbie here with you today from the other end of the world, the United States. 
I'm thrilled to be a part of this amazing design team and look forward to sharing my
 creations with you.

"Just Love Our Story"

I love to create romantic, shabby chic layouts with lots of layering, mixed media flowers and of course chipboard! I started off by adding some inking to the background paper along with some masking in pink and copper tones.

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Just Love Our Story - title
Ella's Border
Ava's Frame
Addy's Butterflies

I used several pieces of chipboard here, 2 of Addy's Butterflies and Ava's Frame.
 All were heat embossed with a mixture of copper, pink and antique taupe embossing powders.
 I added some peony pink stenciling mousse as well on the pieces.

On the right hand side of my layout I used the Ella's border chipboard treated in the same fashion as the butterflies and frames.  I added some copper microbeads.

I love to mix embossing powders.
  My title is a combination of pink and antique taupe powders.
Love the aged look!

"Don't Let Anyone Ever Dull Your Sparkle"

I love this photo of a dear friend's daughter.
 She has such a sweet smile. I added some pink ink along with some light misting
 on the background along with some snowflakes.

2 Crafty Chipboard used...
Breanna's Swirl
Flower Doilies
Don't Let Anyone Ever Dull Your Sparkle - title
Brooke's Swirls

On both sides of the photo I used a flower doily chipboard embossed pink.  Beneath my flower cluster is one of Brooke's Swirls  embossed with icicle powders and tiny silver microbeads.

The right of my photo I placed a flower doily chipboard along with Breanna's Swirl chipboard, embossed with icicle powder and tiny silver microbeads.

Love this title!  A perfect compliment to the sweet photo.  I embossed with light pink and icicle embossing powers.  I added some paint splatters to the background paper along with some bling.

Well, that's it for now.  I hope I have inspired you!
