"My Gorgeous Sunflower" by Amy Voorthuis

  Goodmorning sweet 2Crafty friends, 

Today is my turn to show you some inspiration on this amazing blog. For this post I made another layout this time with my first paper love "Graphic 45" papers. I used the pretty French Country & Olde Curiosity Shoppe collections with all amazing 2Crafty chipboard pieces. I used a picture of our beautiful Abbey amoung some pretty flowers made last year. 

My Gorgeous Sunflower: 

2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Fine Word Set 3
6" Clock Faces
Moroccan Bits
Line Words - Summer
ATC Word Banner Set 1
Lattice Leaves

Firstly I added two layers of gesso on al my chipboard pieces then on the clockfaces & the line word "sun" I used some rustic white sand paint which has a gruncy texture. Then I used several acrylic paints and randomly added that on the same pieces. 

The leaves are first painted with green acrylic paint and when that was all dry I added the same rustic cream/white sand paint and dabbed it on different spots on the leaves. The ATC banner was only treated with some white matte wax. The Moroccan bits are dabbed with some black acrylic paint & gesso.
