'Sisters are attached at the Heart' Layout -
2 Crafty Chipboard

Hello everyone!  Today I am sharing with you another layout created this month for 2Crafty Chipboard.  I used their beautiful Sammi's Swirls to make my ornate heart (just placed 2 of them face to face together) They come in packs of 2 ~ handy!  The lovely title is also from 2Crafty. You can click in to see my post HERE.

I used the new Soulmates Collection from 7 Dots Studio, for this layout. 
 LOVE the new text stamp that is also part of the new collection.  

I used Ingvild Bolme inks {Prima} to recolour the chipboard, before sponging with gesso.  

For my background I used gesso slathered on with an old credit card, before spraying
 with inks, drying off then stamping, then splattering.  Easy light mixed media!

For some extra background texture I used a really old piece of die-cut paper with a cut-out rose design on it - I think it may be Dear Lizzy for American Crafts - a good few years back.  That time when die-cut papers were all the rage but the Silhouette Cameo was not yet released.
