"Friends" by Tammy Klingner

Hi there creative souls.
Tam here today to share my latest design.......


For this layout, I wanted to steer away from my usual bright colours,
and have a go at using a more pastel colour palette.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

*NEW* "6" Floral Cluster Border"
"Lattice Leaves"
"Friends Loopy Font Title"
"Mini Branches"
"Polaroid Frames"

I firstly coated ALL pieces with white gesso.

I absolutely LOVE that NEW 6"Floral Cluster Border.
I couldn't wait to use it.
I coloured each flower individually with watercolour paint.
Once dry I added a few simple pen marks.

I just love the mottled look this technique creates.
Soft and lovely.

I did the same to the "Mini Branches"
I love the effect of the pen marks.
It gives them an arty/whimsical feel.

The "Polaroid Frame" was painted with a grey/silver watercolour 
and then swiped with white gesso.

I simply added white paint to the "Friends Loopy Title" and the "Lattice Leaves".
I wanted that fresh simplicity!

There you are, I hope you like this one.
It was fun to try something a little different.

I'll see you again soon.
