May 2 Crafty Share Part 1

Good morning everybody.
Today I'm sharing my first layout for 2Crafty Chipboard for this month.
It's titled:


This one is about documenting a guest book I created for a very special wedding we attended. 
I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to create it and really wanted to have a memory of this.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
"Polaroid Assortment Frames"
"Frame Viney Circles"
"Lace Heart Frames"
"Love Loopy Font Title"
"Grid Bits"
"ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars"
"Flower Doilies"

I applied white gesso to the "Grid Bits", a "Viney Circle Frame" and to the 
"Love Loopy Title".  I then added white paint. 

 I decided to keep them plain white as a contrast to the dark background paper.
I tucked a few "Polaroid Assorted Frames" into my clusters - these I heat embossed 
with a gorgeous shabby chic metallic emboss powder.
I also tucked in a few of the gorgeous "Flower Doilies". 
I applied white gesso to these and then added a gold spritz to give them a slight colour/glow.
I added a "Lace Heart Frame" and decided to leave this plain - as the raw colour really complemented the layout and also I had added a lot of white chipboard to that particular area,
 so it contrasted with those pieces nicely.

Finally to bring out the touch of red in the layout, I painted a few little hearts from the  
"ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars" in a red colour and scattered these around the layout.
I did a lot of layering and clustering in this layout, and unlike my usual style of bright, 
full-on colour,  I was very controlled and added just a splash of colour here and there.
