Dream - Layout with Emma.

Hi 2Crafty friends.
Emma here with you all sharing my first creation for this month.

This month a few of us 2Crafty girls were invited to participate in with the CSI challenges.
I Chose the first challenge #267.

My first challenge was I don't celebrate Christmas and so I wondered what I would pull from this case?
I drew inspo from the colours, these are not traditional colours and I loved the playfulness of them.
Then I saw little animals and critters, AHA! another piece of the puzzle solved.

So here is what this became.....

My image I found on Pinterest, and it was just the cutest little guy, I couldn't not use him.
I was also inspired by the circles in the case, e.g the baubles, so this then became the bubbles and circular shapes.

These are the chippy pieces I chose for my layout...…

And now I'll tell you how I used them.

For the Bubble clumps I simply embossed them with a Lindy's emboss powder. The perfect blue/aqua for this colour scheme.

For the Folk Hearts I again embossed but with a Novo glitter emboss. Love the sparkle so much on these.

The tricky but fun part on the layout were the swirls. Now I just love that 2Crafty has a tree called Emma's Tree, but I decided that instead of keeping it whole I would carefully cut the swirls off the tree.
 And I'm so happy I did, because I love the effect it has layered under flowers and in the paper layers.
These I have embossed and or Painted to match the Title word.

This gorgeous Green is a Dylusions acrylic paint, which paints onto the chipboard beautifully, and it only needed 2 coats on the Dream title and the finish was smooth and bright.

I love the versatility of the chipboard but I also love a challenge site.
I urge you all to have a bit of fun by joining in over at CSI this month.

I'll see you all at the end of the month with more creativity and be sure to check out the other girls amazing projects this month. There is so much to be inspired by.

Have an amazing few weeks and i'll see you all soon.
