"Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful" Layout - 2Crafty
Chipboard {Prima} Kreative Koncepts Colour Challenge #24

Hello agaaaaain...Here is the 2nd layout I created for 
2Crafty chipboard this month, featured on their blog HERE.

For my inspiration I used the Colour Challenge up
 at Kreative Koncepts {formerly Scrap Friends} HERE.

I thought the bright colours would be challenging & anything
 that Zeneva creates I adore.  She is uber-talented.

I used another gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard title, as well as a decorative 
border {which I cut to frame my photo} & some Berry Branches tucked 
in here & there, along with Prima flowers & Prima canvas resist pieces.  
I've had them for ages & only just discovered how awesome they are!

I embossed the chippie border with various shades of green for a 
verdigris effect.  As I've shared before I always use an EMBOSSING 
DABBER these days as opposed to an embossing pad as the effect
is chunkier & less neat. {yup that is what I am after!}

I thought the title was perfect for the funky photo I had of my
trendy 75 year old mother-in-law!  I embossed it with silver-white
embossing powder then dabbed over it randomly with a yellow paint dabber.

I absolutely LOVE designing for 2Crafty!  Their chipboard is so amazing.
They are always coming up with new styles & we get to choose the products
we love to work with which really makes it complete FUN!!  TTFN!!!
