Heather Jacob - I'm Bursting with Happiness !

HELLO and welcome everyone,
 Heather Jacob with you today.
I am so thrilled and excited to reveal 
my very first layouts as a 2Crafty Design Team member.
A big, big  thank you to Vanessa and Di 
for having me as part of this awesome team of creative talents.


 This layout is loaded with stunning chippies.
As I was creating this page I kept adding and adding more and more,
I guess it has something to do with the magnificent photograph 
taken by the super multi talented 
Deryn Mentock
Thanks so much Deryn for allowing me to use this photo.
Pop over to see the stunning metal jewellery Deryn creates.

  I have used two Fob watches on this layout ,
 this one is inked and placed among the cluster of flowers and foliage.


Above is the Fob Watches   which I inked with Versa color
ink / celadon and inserted it into a circular metal frame.

This divine 6" Tahnyas border is inked in Versa Color ink/ celadon
 and poked under the mounted photo, giving texture and interest 
around the edge of the photo.

I inked the ATC Flourish 2 in Celdon Versa color ink
 and added a splash of gesso .

The foundation for this layout is Tim Holtz Dark Kraft Paper .
I love the look of teal and kraft .
I layered several papers,  added clusters of Green Tara flowers 
and of course the 2 Crafty chippies .
Warm thanks to Deryn for the use of this magnificent photo .

My second Layout starring my beautiful GD, Ella Jai xoxo
photo by

' LOVE '

Here I used a foundation of Prima paper , layered over Dark Kraft .
stamping , gesso and washi tape add texture to the paper.

 I trimmed the Parisian Border, inked them in Tim Holtz Distress
ink /Rusty Hinge and layered the pieces under the mounted photo.

 I inked the fencing wire panel in Tim Holtz distress ink/Rusty Hinge. 
Again I trimmed the panel and only used a small piece on the corner
 under the blooms . I love to cut the chipboard and use the left over
 pieces on other layouts.

Here I have used a tiny left over piece from the corner elegant set
sometimes all I require is a tiny piece to fill a small gap . 

My third layout for today 
is one I created a month ago 


 Here I used the remaining pieces of the Parisian Border,
treated with gesso and when dry dabbed with Versa color ink/ rose.
I chose to draw attention to the white bloom 
by placing the tiny Henris frame and butterfly over it.

Thanks for dropping by.
  I hope I have inspired you. Bye for now.
