Guest Designer
2 Crafty Chipboard


Hi everyone -thanks for dropping by.  This layout is my
Guest Designer post for 2 Crafty Chipboard.
The cardstock in this  layout is the most beautiful shade of purple,
 but unfortunately in the pics it looks more blue.
  I tried photographing it several  times in different lights but this
 is the best I could do. 

I coated the word "Just be You" with Gesso, then Texture Paste,
I applied the colour by rubbing ink over the surface.

I also added a little heart from the
"Nest of Hearts"pack.

                             I just love this Corner Arch.  I achieved the look I wanted

                             by applying Gesso, then ink, then another light coating of Gesso.

I cut the Thistle Shrub into several pieces so I could
arrange them around my cluster.  I have also treated
the tops with Gesso and Texture Paste to add a little
more body to them.  The lovely little touches of green
are pieces of the Branch With Bird.  
(I saved the bird to use on another layout).

The flowers I have used in this layout are from Green Tara.

Thanks so much for dropping by.

Luv Jan xx
