Hi everyone! Here today, to share a layout I created using some beautiful 2Crafty chipboard as part of my Resident Guest Designer spot there!
This is one of my favourite photos of my oldest girl Maria Elena. It is taken in Bowral NSW last year and it is one I use a lot.
In the image above, I have used Ornate Buckles. There are 2 in each pack and I simply painted them white, before using my fingertips and some thick acrylic white paint to give them an aged effect.
You can also see in the image above, that I used a Polaroid Chipboard Frame. To alter the frame, I first applied 2 coats of Gesso and when that dried, I painted it white. I then applied a combination of Tim Holtz
Distress Paints over it in Picket Fence and Picked Raspberry. To finish it off, I applied a thick layer of Glossy Accents.
Just above, you can see the beautiful chipboard circles which are the Flower Medallions. These are so so so pretty! I simply applied the same method as I did with the Ornate Buckles.
Of course my favourite piece of chipboard on this layout is this BEAUTIFUL 11" Round Flourish Frame. I decided to be not too delicate with this frame and by that I mean that once my background, picture and embellishments were in place, I adhered the frame raw right on top of everything and painted it on the paper! I wanted to do this to make it look like the frame was part of the background. Once the paint dried, I applied Modelling Paste with my fingers and with a sponge and finished it off with Clearsnap Donna Salazar Mix'd Media Inx in Chiffon.
