Inspiration with Trudi Harrison

"Follow Your Heart"

Hi Everyone,
Trudi with you today sharing some more 2Crafty Chipboard inspiration.  For my first project,
 I have created something more on the whimsical style.  It was fun creating a floral
playground for my 'little fairy'.  


A fairy does require wings and Skeleton Leaves' were perfect for giving my fairy her wings. 
Fairies and butterflies go hand in hand - a Delicate Butterfly rests on a Leafy Shrub.
I adhered this in place on a slight angle upwards to add a little dimension. 
Follow Your Heart was the perfect sentiment for this very sweet little fairy.   


Elements from both Leafy Shrub Set 1 and Leafy Shrub Set 2 were tucked in around 
where my little fairy rests and among the fussy cut floral blooms.
The Flowery Swirly Frame creates a happy terrarium effect.  
The chipboard elements were kept darker to add contrast to the 'heavier' toning of the fussy
 cut floral elements.  A touch of metallic gold accents the wings, title and flowers of the 11" frame.

For my next project, I have another layout to share.  The chipboard elements were
 kept softer to coordinate with the soft toning of the papers.  

Gosh, it only seems like yesterday when we were bringing this one home from hospital:

"Time Has Flown"

Once again, I have layered lots of fussy cut elements with the chipboard pieces.  
A larger and middle sized Clock Face Frame were arranged behind the photo.
 Whilst a smaller one has been tucked in amongst the blooms. 
 

I trimmed a Lacey Border and this sits under the bottom edge of the photo.  I love
 these pretty borders.  They are so versatile and one of my favourite pieces.  You will
often see these pop on my projects.


The negative frame from the smallest clock face frame was tucked in underneath
the floral cluster and a trimmed Chain Length hangs down.


A Scroll 3 was added at the bottom with a small flower attached over the top.
