March 2Crafty Layout

This month's share from me is a joint reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard &
A few of the 2Crafty DT are guest DT for this month's mood board over at SATW.
Here is the mood board inspiration created by Terhi Koskinen from Finland.

There are wonderful prizes up for grabs as usual!!

You can view all the details for their current challenge *HERE*.

 Here is my take on the challenge...

'All Because Two People Fell In Love'

 I loved this mood board as soon as I saw it & knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I started with lots of different textures (old book paper, gesso, washi tape, joint tape)
& began adding layers of colour over, using Gelatos, acrylic paint & inks.

 I then I added some paper strips, black threads & 2Crafty chipboard
to create my layers before putting on my photo.
 I've left the 'Circular panel' raw, as there is alot going on in the background.

With the 'Loppy Love' chippy, I painted it with a few layers of gesso
& then used black archival ink & a stamp to add detail to it.

Same again with the 'Chevron Bits', I left in it's raw state too.

 2Crafty Chipboard used:

Circular Panel

Loopy 'Love' 

Chevron Bits

Guest Designer at Life Zesters

This month I'm guest DT over at Life Zesters Challenge blog!!!
This month's challenge is a mood board

Here is my take on the mood board!!
This was a 12x12 piece of cardstock, which I painted, inked, stamped
etc to create an awesome messy background, before cutting it up
to suit my pocket page.
I LOOOOOOVE how it turned out!!!

These pics are from a fantastic retreat run by SFS on the Central Coast.
Retreats are fantastic - if you've never been to one, I suggest you
do. You'll be hooked after that LOL ;)

I've used some Flutterby Designs goodies to embellish.
Wood veneers, Flair buttons & Page Tab cut-outs.

I have also used some washi tape, thread, thickers, hole reinforcer stickers,
enamel dots & overlay words... 

Don't forget you have until the end of the month to enter in this month's
challenge over at Life Zesters.
