Rachael's February Layouts


Hi there!
Rachael with you to share my February projects / two layouts......
My first layout of my MIL with her five grandkids!

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Grandkids - title
Fine word set - Adore
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars - Hearts
Brick Panel
Vintage Bird
Flower Doilies
Flourish Frame 3

I have given the title Grandkids a couple of coats of gesso.
 The Adore word, from the Fine word Set, has been heat embossed with a nice royal blue....

The Flourish Frame 3 has been inked black & cut in half to sit at the top & bottom of the photo....

Peeking out of the paper layers is a Flower Doily.  I had cut it in half 
given it a random coat of gesso...

Vintage Bird also has a very light coat of gesso..... & the Hearts from ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars, some inked black & some have a couple of coats of gesso.....

With the Brick Panel, I first cut it into smaller random pieces inked with a rustic orange, 
then dabbed ever so lightly with gesso just to tone it down a little.... 


'Forever Always'

This next layout is a bit of an EXTRA SPECIAL layout of my brother 
(who sadly is no longer with us).

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Fine word set - forever always
Squiggly heart cluster
Bird Set
Wing Set 1
Fob Clock
Flourish Adornment 5

I would have to say I really LOVE working with these words from the Fine Word Set....
 I have heat embossed the forever & always words with gold........ 
Then I glued these words on top of the Squiggly heart cluster
which has also received a coat of gesso.

I  VERY lightly inked the Fob Clock with gold.

With a set of Wings from Wing Set 1 I simply gave them a light layer of gesso
 then around the edges I added a few extra coats of gesso.....

A Flourish from the Flourish Adornment 5 Set, I have cut in two & inked black.

The Birds have been heat embossed with a gold........

Thanks for stopping by
& I will be back with more next month!

Cheers Rach  x

I must admit I'm a bit jealous, Rachael! You are able to add so much without your layout looking overwhelming... Love how you use the chippies! Congrats! :)
