Hi everyone, I'm here to share my first layout for 2Crafty Chipboard for July.
We are in the middle of winter here in Australia, and where I live it's freezing!
I always feel a bit flat when it's cold and dreary, so I've created a bright layout, hoping that will offset the cold.......(one can only hope hey).
Colour always makes me feel brighter.
I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
'Soft Feather Set'
'Polaroid Assorted Frames'
I had these photos of my warrior daughter who dressed up for her High School Sports Day.
I love them and I adore feathers - as you can see I've used a lot!
I used a couple of different techniques on them.
On the 'Indian Feathers' I applied black paint and then rubbed on some of Finnabair's Acrylic Paint in Opal Magic - Aqua Rose.
This is a cool product.
I purchased it on a recent trip to Scrap Matrix. Vicki has really cool mixed media products - stuff that is hard to get here in Australia. Plus she's one lovely chick.
On lighter backgrounds this product comes out a pinky tone, and on a dark background it's this beautiful teal colour.
It has a beautiful opalescent shine.
To one of the 'Dreamcatchers' and also one of the 'Soft Feathers' I applied white gesso and then stamped a script stamp with black over the top.
I finished off with a bit of ink.
I really love how these turned out.
I painted some of the 'Assorted Arrows' black.
I painted a 'Polaroid Assorted Frame' in green and then stamped a triangle pattern onto this randomly.
To create my title I painted the 'Brave' with black paint and then added the product
(the same technique as with the 'Indian Feathers').
I added stacks of products from the one and only Kit the Habit.
I really love using one or two of these products on my layouts.
We have loads of fun creating and making our very own scrapping products.
On this page I used:
a 'Find your Wild' flair
an acrylic tepee (so cute!)
lots of feathers
a Project Life Card
a couple of quotes from our 'Little Bit of Randoms'.

The final step was to swipe some black paint around the edges of the page, and flick some paint over the layout (don't forget to cover up your photo first!)
I hope you've enjoyed this one.....I had a blast creating it!
I'll be back with more soon!
