Magic....My One Little Word for 2019
by Tammy Klingner

Hi everybody, Tam here today.
Welcome to another year, I'm excited to share my creations with you again!
This first one is titled:


It's all about my One Little Word for 2019.
I've been selecting a word each year for a while now, inspired by the inspiring Ali Edwards.
Some have been hugely powerful, and really caused a year of self reflection and personal growth.  Some are still a big part of my life, and I continue to focus on them regularly.
This year I'm inviting Magic into my life.

I love finding the everyday magic all around us.
I love that when I notice the magic I feel grateful, happy, filled up.
You can read more about my reasons behind the word Magic HERE.

I added white gesso and some distress oxides to the 'Rose Set'.
I love the watercolour effect this gives.

To the leaves from the 'Handdrawn Flowers Set', I added white gesso and then white paint.
I love the contrast against the black background and the pops of colour.

As my word is 'Magic', I trimmed this word from the 'The Magic of You' title.
I added white gesso and then some Distress Ink to the title.  
I love that pop of fuschia, and how it picks up the background.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
'The Magic of You Title'
'Handdrawn Flowers'
'Rose Set'

I just love how the 2Crafty Chipboard can be altered to the perfect colours to match my layout!

Finally I added my journaling around the edges of the layout.

 That's it from me today, I hope this has inspired you!
I wish you a creative year ahead, and I will pop back again a bit later
 in the month with some more inspiration.
