September Inspiration by Tammy Klingner

Hi 2 Crafties!!
Today I'm sharing a few layouts with you.
The first one is titled


I used the following 2 Crafty Chipboard:
"Line Words- Summer"
"Flower Doilies"
"Assorted Arrows"

I gave all the Chipboard a coat of gesso.
I left the "Flower Doily" like this and tucked it into my layers.
For my 'Summer' title from the "Line Words - Summer" pack I added some coffee!
Yep you heard correct - coffee!
You see I was scrapping away - not in my scrap room - and I'd forgotten my brown coloured spritzes, so I added some water to coffee to make a liquid mix and simply brushed this over the top of the title.
I love the colour and effect.
I did the same to the "Assorted Arrows"
Even the splashes and circles were created with the coffee.
I really love how the colours work with the turquoise, the white and the woodgrain.
My second layout is titled


I used the following 2 Crafty Chipboard:
"Grid Bits:
"Fine Heart Borders"
"Winter Twig Branches"
"Mini Words Set 1"

I added gesso to the "Grid Panel", and applied it in a random fashion - I didn't want it to be totally white, I wanted some of the raw chippy to show through as I felt the colour tone worked well with the colours in my layout.
I added white gesso to the "Winter Twig Branches" and cut these into small pieces which created an arrow looking piece of chippy.
I coated the "Fine Heart Borders" with white gesso and then added some soft yellow ink to these.

I took the word "Enjoy" from the "Fine Words Set 1" and coated it in white gesso.
I then added some light blue ink to this.
I like the soft pastel look of this layout.
I'm sure many of you know I'm a big fan of bold, bright colour, so this was really different for me.
It's always fun to step out of your comfort zone every now and then!
I've got an extra layout to share with you this month.
It's titled

"She Lived Beauty"

It was created for a challenge site Scrap the Girls. 
This month's challenge is a sketch and this was my take on it.
I used the following 2 Crafty Chipboard:
"6 inch Revolution Frames"
"Angel Wings"
"Spring Flower Bunches"
"Fine Word Set 2"

 I applied a couple of coats of white gesso to the "Spring Flower Bunches".

I coated the "6 inch Revolution Circle Frame" with white gesso and then coloured it with some Mica Powders and water - I really love the rainbow effect this gives.
I painted the word 'beauty' from the "Fine Words Set 2" in black and then rubbed some Finnabair Opal Magic Acrylic Paint in Aqua/Rose to this.
It gives a gorgeous finish.
I also did this to the "Angel Wings".
I love how these colours pop against the black background.
So that's it from me for this month.
