"Happy Today" Layout {2Crafty Chipboard - Prima Product Pick}







Hello again everyone!
Back today with my 2nd share for 2Crafty Chipboard
as I am up on their blog at the moment.  


I used this month's Prima Product Pick as my inspiration.  


How awesome are these 2Crafty word circles?!  
They come in sets of 6 & I can't wait to use the rest.  
So delicate to use as titles - LOVE them!


I also used the 6"Hexagon backing sheet that comes all connected 
like mosaic tiles & you have to cut them apart at a few points.  
I adhered those to my base paper before adding any mediums, 
so they would become part of the texture.  


I used Tsukineko Goosebump spray for the clear water droplet texture you can 
see in the photo above, as well as layers of Prima Color Bloom sprays & gesso.  
The flowers, leaves, crochet icons & the paper clip all come from Prima.  


I also used a 6'' sheet of Chicken Wire chipboard to make another
 textural layer, which I also used to hold down gauze around my photo stacks.  
You may have noticed something glittery & textural on the background - 
those are MICA FLAKES although they didn't photograph too well :)

Thanks for your visit today - I really appreciate it!
