'His Smile' layout
by Rachael Funnell

Hello 2 Crafty fans!
  Rach with you today sharing my newest creation, 
a layout featuring my handsome teenager son 
& some great 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces...

2 Crafty Chipboard:

Aztec arrow
 His Smile - 1 of the new pieces for 2 Crafty August release
ATC - Tiny arrows
Light bulbs
Small Steampunk gears

Then layout came together relatively quickly
I started with a mixed media background....
by adding a coat of clear gesso, lots of stamping & a little colour..

Next I added some paper layers & my photo..
Then it was onto the chipboard pieces & sticking with the colour scheme!
I heat embossed all chipboard pieces with either teal, black or dark blue.....

Wanting a more rugged/uneven finish to the 
Steampunk corner, I decide to first pull away a thin layer of chipboard 
from only some parts of the corner before embossing ...

For my title His Smile is one of 2 Crafty August release 
I first given it a 2 coats of gesso, 
before heat embossing bottom half of the word Smile...

I am really happy with how my page has turned out!!!

Thanks for stopping by
Hopefully I have inpsired you in some way today! 
Until next time!
