April Inspiration by Debbie

Hi everyone!
  Debbie here with you today to share my April projects for 2Crafty Chipboard!

"Happiness Is This"

Since it is Spring here where I live and some of the bushes and flowers are blooming,
 I wanted to create a colorful layout.  I used a picture of my friend's daughter from a
few years back.  Thought the picture was the perfect fit for the title. I applied some
roses with a stencil to the background and some pink mist.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
happiness is this
Fine Stem Frames
Flourish Adornment Set 3

On both sides of the photo I used the Flourish Adornment Set 3. I normally like to emboss the chipboard pieces on my layouts, but used a different technique for this layout.  I covered them with gesso and then colored them with a light green mousse and a sprinkling of green glitter.
 I cut apart the smaller frame from the Fine Stem Frames set, covered it with gesso and
 them applied some pink peony mousse and placed the pieces among the flowers.

Love the dainty title.  I covered it with gesso and applied pink peony mousse.

My next layout was inspired by the picture I used, which I found on Pinterest.


I misted the background paper and applied several stamps, some masking and paint splatters.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Butterfly Flourish
Fine Word Set 2
Element Set 1
Mini Flourish Bits

I love the details in the Butterfly Flourish! I embossed it with purple and
 gold and added some gold micro beads for dimension.

To the left and right of the picture I placed pieces from the Mini Flourish Bits.  I
 embossed them with a mixture of purple and gold embossing powders and added
 some gold mico beads.

Above the picture I used a piece from the Element Set 1, embossed with a
mixture of purple and gold embossing powders.

The title timeless is from the Fine Word Set 2.  I embossed it with some
light purple embossing powder.

I hope that I have inspired you.
I'll see you next month!
