"June 2020"
By Charmane Sharp

 Hello to all the 2Crafty chipboard fans.

Today I have soft pastel layout to share with you all.

This was our first Rabbit we fostered 
for SAFE called Coco enjoying some afternoon sun.

When mixing a lot of varied scrapbook elements together,
chipboard just seems to pull them all together.

2Crafty chipboard used...

Decorative Doily
Frame Fine Circle with Butterflies
Summer Leaf Stems
Fine Word set - Months

This Frame is so pretty with its fine swirls to encircle my photos. I love that it
comes with the Butterflies to add extra details to your layout. All the chipboard
pieces were coated with Gesso and Watercolours by Prima coloured each one.
They give a matching pastel finish to compliment my papers.

I wanted a unique title so I chose the date my photos were taken. By painting
the month and year in different colours it allowed me to place them on top
of each. 

Mixing 2Crafty chipboard Leaves with cut out elements adds differing
textures to draw the eye through all the details. By blending the Watercolour 
to show light and shade with some Gesso on the edges, the Leaves are 
delicate and soft. The Butterflies are scattered throughout and painted with
the same colours to match all the gorgeous flowers.

Tucking the Decorative Doily between the layers of Flowers breaks
the cluster up and provides a distinctive appearance of contrasting details.
Allowing the whole arrangement to be taken in, especially due to the
Lilac colour I painted the Doily.

Thank you for taking the time to view my layout today. Try out your
own Watercolours on 2Crafty chipboard for some wonderful elements to 
add to your layout.

Until next time...
