True Beauty - with Emma

Hello 2Crafty friends,
Emma here with you all for my last project of the year but also 2Crafty's last blog post for the year. So I feel very honored to finish 2019 in this way.
I have truly enjoyed being a part of the design team this year and can not wait to
 be a part of it all again in 2020.
 So lets see how the awesome chipboard inspired me this month.

Here is the amazing chipboard in the raw......

Element Set 1
Mini Word Set 1
6" Funky lines Panel

I often like to keep the chipboard pretty simple so it really becomes the focal feature without getting too lost in all the other paper elements.
So with the chosen chipboard for this page I opted to use a bolder colour to 'pop' from the page and I did this with Rust effect pastes.

This is probably one of my most fave ways of covering my chipboard as I adore the texture. I wanted it to feel earthy to match the tranquility and awe of the image I had chosen.

After the Rust paste had dried I lightly rubbed over them with a Prima wax. This really added highlights and showed up more of that texture that I love.

With the title 'beauty' I only rubbed over it with the wax, no other preparation involved. Again this is why I love 2crafty chipboard as it is so easy to use with various mediums. 
 I must admit one of my other favourite elements on this page is the little watch. My 12yr old Son Asha loves watching me create and likes to help me choose embellishments for me for some of my layouts. He put together all the little prills, hearts and flakes together in the fob and I loved it so much. It made the layout of course!

I wish to thank all you 2crafty supporters and readers for all the love you have shown over the past year and I look forward to sharing with you all in 2020.
Happy creating friends.

Much love to you all.
Emma xx
