A Self Portrait
By Di Garling

 "Today - A Self Portrait"

Hi there 2Crafty friends. Today I have a "self portrait" layout to share
with you & as always, I have used lots of my favourite 2Crafty Chipboard.


2Crafty Chipboard Used...

Florence Swirl Set
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Set
"Today title from the Fine Word Set #3 
Gears
6" Bubble Grid Panel
2019's


The word  "Today" which is from the "Fine Word Set #3"
the "2019" date & the "Tiny Hearts" 
were all simply painted with some black acrylic paint. 

The "Florence Swirls" were base coated in white paint followed
by a coat of Colour Blast Mica Powders.

Notice in the pic of the swirl how it is a bit bubbly.
Thats what happens to a lot of paints etc when you heat them with
a heat gun, it adds a nice bit of texture & thats a bonus.


The "Bubble Grid Panel" was cut into pieces,
painted with black paint & when dry I sponged on
a little bit of Viva "Precious Metal" in a coral colour.

A bit hard to see in the pics but I have also added a couple of
"gears" underneath the edges of the photo. These were treated 
with some crackle paste & then white acrylic paint.

Too easy.

Well thats all for today.
Until next time.
