Heart's Nearest and Dearest
with Trudi Harrison


Hi Everyone,

It's Trudi joining you sharing some more 2Crafty Chipboard inspiration.  February is the month of 'love' but I think every month we should celebrate our heart's nearest and dearest.  My projects this month are dedicated to my girls who are quite often my creative source of inspiration.
 The are also my greatest blessings and loves of my life.

Pointed Doily Frames and a Doily Frame were arranged in the background
behind the photo, with fussy cut elements layered over the top.
The frames were coloured with Colour Blast Dusty Charcoal Colour Spray
and then lightly dabbed with white paint. 
A Corner Arch was trimmed into 2 pieces - One piece sitting under the larger
 Pointed Doily Frame and the other one tucked under the outer edge of the photo.

I trimmed a Parisian Border into 2 pieces and tucked in along the outer edges of the photo.
 These as well as the Corner Arch pieces were inked with Turquoise Stone Chalk Ink and
 lightly dabbed with white paint. 
Moroccan Bits were also trimmed into smaller pieces and tucked under and around the floral elements. These were painted white then spritzed with Colour Blast Sunshine Colour Spray.
Treasure from the Fine Word Set1 was attached over the the main floral cluster covering the
 bottom left hand edge of my photo.

For my second project, a pretty garden window shadow box scene was created with the
Window Shutter Set. 

The shutters were affixed in place on a slight angle and the window shelf attached 
so that it sits out. This created a cute window shadow box effect. 

A rose bloom was trimmed from a Climbing Rose Bush Border and 
cascades from under the window down the page.

A decorative accent was added where the two patterned papers meet with a pretty border
 from the Lacey Border Set 1.
Cherish was the Fine Word Set 1 was affixed in place over the blooms. 
 This was inked black for contrast.
