together - by Nina

Hi 2Crafty fans,  hope you are managing to get some crafting done on these cold winter days!

Today I would love to share with you my latest 2Crafty Creation.

As you probably are aware by now, my most favourite 2Crafty chipboard pieces are those that are very swirly and flourishy!!  When it comes to creating, I could be diagnosed with OCFSD (Obsessive Compulsive Flourishy Swirls Disorder!!).  Flourishes and Swirl designs appear on nearly all of my creations, and to be honest, it makes me creatively happy to add a whimisical touch to my projects!  As with any of my projects,  I don't feel that they are finished until some form of flourish or swirl takes centre stage!!  It is wonderful that Vanessa has a reputation for including such amazing chipboard designs in the 2Crafty range to suit my own personal creative fetishes!!

Now, onto the important details about my layout ....

I have used the following:
I have used "Ivy Glimmermist" to colour the chipboard pieces.  I postioned a photo behind the large Shirley's Frame, and cut the small Shirley's frame in half, and positioning it over the manilla tag to draw ones eye to the journalling.  I cut the Elsie's border in half, and postitioned it behind the top and bottom of the large Shirley's Frame, elongating the border.

To adhere the chipboard pieces to my project, I have used dimensional magic.

Here are some close up pic's of the finer details ...

Thanks for stopping by the 2Crafty blog.  I hope you have been inspired to add some whimical 2Crafty chipboard to your next project!!
