Beauty - layout and bonus video by Emma.

Hi 2Crafty friends, 

Today I’m sharing a layout that was inspired by my friend Kelsey's watercolour portrait 
she had painted of an image she had found 😜 
She inspires me and is creating some cool art.

I really loved it and felt inspired to create with it. 
I used some cool chipboard for it and really felt I wanted to play with a circle theme. 

So these are the pieces I chose.....

I also chose to use a colour tone that isn’t my go to but wanted to try something different for me.  Again I drew inspo from the image and this time her lips. So I chose a lindys starburst spray in magnolia magenta gold. 

And so for a couple of the bubble clumps I purely just painted them, and painted them in a colour tone to fit my page and compliment the base colour, I used a Dylusions acrylic in pomegranate seed. 

And for the other bubble clumps and the dotty bits I coated in an oxide ink but this time a muted tone using iced spruce. 

The gorgeous hibiscus flowers I embossed with a chunky white emboss powder, I really wanted them to not be ‘perfect’, so this is why I chose the chunky emboss, as it heats up it seperates and you can see through it. 

And finally for my title piece I again simply embossed with a novo powder. I love this black shimmer it really makes the title stand out. 

I really hope this has inspired you in some way. I have a little video for this one too, I would love you to check out and hopefully inspire just a little more. 

I’ll catch you all next month. 
Em. Xx
