Guest Designer for 2 Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone -
It's my turn again as a Guest Designer on the 2 Crafty Chipboard Blog
This month I have featured the beautiful  
I applied Gesso very heavily, applied heat, then painted it white
to get this lovely textured effect.

I love  Summer Leaf Stemsthey can be used on
so many different pages.  I have inked these leaves
then applied Crackle Accents for a lovely natural effect.

 Gesso applied heavily and heated creates this beautiful
textured effect.

 I separated a couple of the Summer Leaf Stems, and tucked them
 into my flourish.

I painted this word, then applied a very thin coat of Gesso
to tone down the colour and create a little interesting paint

The flowers and ribbons I have used on this page are from

Thank you so much for dropping by.

2 Crafty Design Team
March Post

Hi everyone -  Today is my second post as
 Guest Designer for 2 Crafty Chipboard.

I have used the absolutely beautiful  Cartia's Swirl here, thinly
coated with Gesso then painted white.

Summer Leaf Stems were inked then coated with Crackle Accents
to give a lovely mottled and realistic effect.

I separated this title to give a little more balance on the page, then 
simply applied a thin coat of Gesso and paint.

The flowers and lace I have used on this page are from Green Tara.

Thanks for dropping by

Liebster Award

Hi everyone, exciting news to share today -.

I have been so very fortunate to have been awarded the
 Liebster Award from my very good friend and scrapping
 buddy, Di Garling.  Thank you so much Di.

The Liebster Award was designed to be a blog award 
in the pay it forward fashion. It is awarded to blogs
 that have fewer than 200 followers to encourage new
 visitors to them. Once you have been nominated you award
 it to five other blogs.

The rules are: Post the award to your blog,
 give the award to five bloggers who you appreciate
 that have fewer than 200 followers, then leave 
a comment on their blogs to let them know that 
you have given them this award. 

I have passed the award on to five other ladies whose work
 I admire tremendously.

Please pop over to these blogs and have a look at their beautiful work.
