July Inspiration by Rachael Funnell


Hello Everyone!
Rach with you to share two layouts for July....
My first layout 'Love' has lots of gorgeous chipboard!

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Graceful butterfly
ATC - Tiny Butterflies
Indian Feathers
Love flourish
Jewellery Strands

The 'Love Flourish' has a thick coat of gesso & finished off with some fine splatters of blue...

The delicate 'Jewellery Strands' have a very light coat of gesso, cut in half &
 placed top & bottom of the photo of my girl......

The gorgeous 'Graceful Butterfly' has a couple of coats of gesso,
then inked with a Distress Dark blue ink....

The 'Hibiscus' also has a coat of gesso & then inked with a Distress pale pink....
 Finished with some blue fine splatters & micro beads & beads.

The 'Indian feathers' have a coat of gesso & inked the edges with a teal ink....


'Capture' layout which features one of my nephew's....

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Bubble words
Domino tiles
Mixed buttons
Polaroid frame
Mini word set 1 (Capture word)
Funky Arrows

On my background & underneath my photo is a negative chipboard piece for a extra
 dimension layer, then I have placed some Domino tiles on & around this negative piece,
 then given all this chipboard a light coat of gesso....
To create a bit more interest to the background I have inked 3 of the domino's with yellow ink!!

I have added a couple of the Funky arrows which have been inked black!

With the Mixed Buttons, I wanted them to stand out & have heat embossed them with a white....

The bubble word (COOL) where I have cut away the triangle piece & the Capture word
 from the Mini Word Set #1 both have a couple of coats of gesso....

For the Polaroid frame, I started by giving it a coat of gesso, once dried I gave it a
spray with a royal blue mist & adhering the frame it to the photo!

Hopefully I've inspired you in some way....
THANKS for visiting us today!!
