February Inspiration By Rachael Funnell

Hi 2 Crafty fans!

It's Rach with you today, sharing my layouts for February.....
My first page featuring my boy! 😀

"Live your Adventure"

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
Chained Circle Frames
Live your Adventure title
Triangle Clusters
Wing Set 2
Giant gears
Steampunk gears Small
Steampunk gears Medium

For the Title 'Live your Adventure' I wanted it to stand out sitting on the B& W photo....
so I went with giving it a couple of coats of gesso...... Also I added gesso to the to the
 Chain circle frame, then inked with Tim Holtz -Distress Squeezed Lemonade (yellow) ....... 
Did the same to the Giant gear & couple of the Steampunk gears....


While other Steampunk gears have been inked with a Teal & black....
The Triangle Clusters also have been inked black....




  As I didn't want to lose any of that gorgeous delicate details to the wing, 
I ever so lightly rubbed over with gesso, then using a paint brush, painted on a thinker
coat gesso on the edges....

My 2nd layout featuring my girl.....


 'Let your LIGHT SHINE'

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
Indian Feathers
Twinkling Fairies 
 Let your LIGHTSHINE
# Mini word set 1 - #Beauty 
2017
Leafty Silhouettes

I wanted to create a uniqueness to this fantastic Let your LIGHTSHINE title....
  So I started with a paint brush and I painted on a couple of coats of gesso to the
 'Let your'  and heat embossing the bottom half of LIGHTSHINE with
Nuvo - Glittering gold....
 I was VERY happy with the end result! 😀😀😀


Also! heat emboss with Nuvo - Glittering gold this gorgeous Twinkling Fairy ...


Continuing on with heat embossing..... 
AND with Nuvo - Blue Odyssey these super cute Indian Feathers .

 



Also thoughout my layout I have adding a few beautiful
Leafty Silhouettes which I have added gesso to....
