January Layouts By Rachael Funnell

"Good Times"

Hi there everyone!
Rachael with you to share my January inspiration.....
First up I created this mixed media layout "GOOD TIMES" 

These are the awesome 2 Crafty Chipboards I used: 
Chained Heart Frame
Line words Borders - Good times
2016
Bird Set
Anchor

If you have stopped by the 2 Crafty blog to check out my projects before, you
would know how I like to come up with creative ways to use up those negative pieces...  πŸ˜


Well! I have also incorporate the negative pieces from the gorgeous
 Lace Heart frames into my background of my layout, I have covered
them with gesso, then inked the edges to enhance those hearts..
.



I just love πŸ’“ the details this Anchor has and didn't want to lose any of it so!
 I have gave it just a very light coat of gesso....

The Chained Heart Frame, has a coat of gesso, then inked red....

Also I gave this Line words Borders - Good times, a coat of gesso...

The couple of bird's have a couple of layers of gesso.


 You may notice that this bird has a hint of blue? Well I did originally think I would
ink the birds blue, BUT! Once I had placed it on my page, I felt that the bird blended
into the page too much, SO I added another coat of gesso...

I did the same to the 2016 chipboard piece, a coat of gesso then inked with blue,
 but only a few dabs of gesso just to tone down the blue a little....


************
For my second layout I have gone with more pretty and 
a little less mixed media.. πŸ˜‰ 

"Year 6 Farewell" 

For my second page I have used these 2Crafty Chipboard pieces:
Mini School Year Titles  (Year 6)
Beaded hanging Hearts
2016 
Lattice Leaves
Mini word Set 2 ( Precious)
ATC - Tiny Butterflies
Elsa Frame
Whispy Dandelion 

With the Whispy Dandelion it has two layers of gesso...

 Lattice Leaves....

 The couple of Beaded hanging Hearts have a coat of gesso,
then inked with a Sea green color...

ATC - Tiny Butterflies have a coat of gesso & inked the edges black....
..

The Elsa Frame peeking out from underneath photo has a coat of gesso....


Also! inked with black ink is this 2016...


With both wording Year 6 (Mini School Year Titles) and  Precious (Mini word Set 2)
I have given them a coat of gesso and then inked half of the words/number for a two toned look.....



That's it for me this month!!
Thanks for stopping by

Both are fabulous layouts Rach. You never cease to amaze me with your innovative use of all the chippie pieces. Beautiful work as always.
PS. I can't believe that your girls has had her Year 6 Farewell so that means she is now in high school !!!! gee when I first met you online she was just a little tiny girl. Where do the years go. πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
