Layout by Tammy Klingner

Hi there everyone!
Tam back again to share another layout with lots of yummy NEW 2Crafty Chipboard!
This one is titled:


It's a layout celebrating my amazing daughter and her recent volunteer trip to Cambodia, where she was involved in building a house for a family and also educating and teaching English at the School.
Definitely life changing, definitely inspiring, definitely proud!
Definitely needed to be documented!

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
'Fern Leaf Set' *NEW*
'Fine and Fancy Butterfly Set' *NEW*
'Fine Word Set 2'
'Mini Squiggly Bits' *NEW*
'Polaroid Assorted Frames'

I began by painting one of the frames from the 
'Polaroid Assorted Frame Set' in white acrylic paint.

I then added some random stamping with black ink.

I used the frame to highlight a photo, and then added some embellishments to the side. 
This really draws the eye into that particular area, making it the focal point.

I also painted the 'Mini Squiggly Bits' in white paint.
I poked these around the layers of the layout, so they are peeking out.
The white contrasts really well with the black background.

I added the word 'Shine' from the 'Fine Word Set 2' to the strip of photos.
These fine words are perfect for adding to the tops of your layers and photos -
 they are fine and so don't cover up too much.
I simply added black paint to this. It's really all that was needed.

I also painted the 'Fern Leaf Set' black, and once dry I randomly swiped
 Opal Magic in Aqua/Rose over the top.
I really love this effect and it suits the layout perfectly.

In the bottom left hand corner, you can see I've created a smaller cluster.
To this I added a NEW 'Fine and Fancy Butterfly'.
These are gorgeous, and there's three in a pack, I only used one so I have some
 leftover for another creation!

I simply applied some Archival Ink in 'Garden Patina'.

There you have it!

That's it from me today, I look forward to inspiring you again next month.
