Tam's November Creation.....

Hi there 2 Crafty Creatives.
Tam here today to share my latest.
This one's titled:

  "You Make Me Happy When Skies are Grey"

I had a lot of fun with this one!

I created the background paper by using a green sheet of paper,
 adding a funky stencil, and some spritz.
Easy yet so effective!

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
"You make me Happy when Skies are Grey title"
"Foliage Set 5"
"Flowering Clusters"
"Weeping Vine"

All of the chipboard was clustered to one corner of the page.
I did this as the background was quite busy, and I wanted to focus
the eye of the viewer into the photograph.

I went simple with colour, again because of the busy background, 
keeping it mostly monochromatic.

I applied white gesso to the "Flowering Clusters" and used these as my background piece.

I also applied white gesso to some of the leaves in the "Foliage Set 5".
Once dry, I added some black pen marks, just for a bit of fun.

I added some teal coloured ink to the "You make me Happy when Skies are Grey" title.
I love that pop of teal mixed with the lime and black and white!


Finally I added white emboss powder to the "Weeping Vine",
 and poked this in amongst the layers.

That's it from me today, I hope I've inspired you.
