"All because Two people Fell in Love" Layout - 2Crafty Chipboard DT work {7Dots Studio Illumination - Prima}






Hello everyone.  Back again today with my 2nd layout share for 2Crafty chipboard, which you can see up on their blog HERE.  I recently received the new 7Dots Studio papers, Illumination, which are my absolute favourite from their latest CHA releases {although of course I had to order a set of each of them!} so here is Illumination in action.  It certainly did not disappoint me & the dark base was perfect for some paint splattering...


I used one of 2Crafty's awesome chipboard titles for this. 
{All Because Two  People Fell in Love title}
 I sponge painted it with white acrylic paint then dipped it into some
 chunky glitter for a sparkly effect that doesn't show up too well in photos sadly...


I also used the circular panel which I cut into 3 pieces, using one in the
 centre of my layout, under my photo, & the other 2 pieces under my layers 
at each side of my photo.   I treated my circular panel the same way as my
 title but for the smaller pieces of circular panel at each side, I left those raw.


I also cut up one Berry Branch & painted it with a Ranger 
dabber in 'Juniper' {must-have colour!}


Adding chipboard over threads is a good way to secure 
them in place as I have done in the photo above.


Placing your chippie title onto some contrasting 
paper is a good way to help it to pop off the page.


Cutting up your branches is an economical way to use them on your work.


Chipboard makes for great layering as it's light & not too bulky. 
 I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my creations with 2Crafty chipboard today.  
Thanks for your visit!  
I am on a Juice Diet at the moment so have a splitting headache! 
 {not from the fresh fruit & vegetable juice apparently but rather from the detoxing !!} 

 I must say that I am LOVING actually doing the juicing myself - it is such fun 
seeing all the different colours mix up together &  they taste absolutely delicious!!!
 Today I have eaten more fruit & vegetables than any other day of my life I reckon!!!
