"Our Story" with Amy Voorthuis

Hi lovely creative peeps, 
Hope you are enjoying your day! I am always in my happy place while creating for 2Crafty Chipboard and all their lovely chipboard designs I just can't imagine to not use their chipboards on my work as they are so detailed and wonderfully designed.
 For this layout I have used some papers by 49 and Market as I was dying to dig in and again they don't disappoint. They are such a great fit together that I started a new page already. 

For this layout I have used a picture of my husband & I at a party called "Sensation White" way back {feels like a lifetime ago} enjoy my post.... 

Our Story: 

2Crafty Chipboard used: 

You know what's amazing, you can order directly from the
2Crafty website here so you can also play with their amazing chipboard pieces.

This time I haven't treated the chipboard pieces a lot since I didn't want them to be shiny or have a lot of color. The nested cog frame that I used around my photo is the only piece that I wanted to stand out from my work so that one I gessod two times with white gesso & used embossing powder on{blue with a pink shimmer on it} 

I have used the large one of the square barbed wire frames and just gessod it with two layers of white gesso and the cut it in pieces to later add them on my nested cog frame after that I used some charcoal black wax what I also did with the rest of my chipboard pieces. 

Only on the gears I used a thin layer of gesso and left some parts of them a little more raw. For the bulldog clips I just added a word from the 49 and Market collection that I raised up with some foam tape. To soften my page I added some white spray & matte white wax. 

  Thank you so much for stopping by I will be back later this month with another project hope to see you back then....
