My February Inspiration - Two Layouts to Share
By Di Garling

"A Wish Come True"

Hello there, thanks for dropping by the blog.
Today I have two layouts to share with you that I have created for a couple of classes
that I am teaching at the end of March down at Manor House Creations in Melbourne Australia.

Naturally I have used some of my favourite pieces of 2Crafty chipboard.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
A Wish Come True - title
 Skeleton Leaves
Leafy Shrub Set #1
Circle Heart Frame

All of the chipboard pieces were simply given a coat of gesso to start,
followed by some "Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Sassy Saphire".

It's a shame you can't see the lovely shimmer the chipboard has.

"Making Memories"

For my second layout I decided to go with some lovely dark colours.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Making Memories - title
Lacy Border Set #1
Steampunk Gears - Medium

This is one of the many titles 2 Crafty have. 
Again after a coat of gesso I simply painted it with some gold acrylic paint.

For both the cogs & the borders I coated them in gesso first, followed by some 
"Colour Blast Paste in Gold Bling" & while they were still wet I sprinkled 
them with some glitter. This effect is rather stunning in real life.
I used the same paste stencilled onto the background too.

Lots of layers.

Lots of beautiful flowers from 49 and Market.

Well that all from me today, I hope I have inspired you just a little.
Until next time
