My second 2Crafty Chipboard share for July!

My second layout for 2Crafty Chipboard this month is about my brother and me.
It's titled:

"Our Story"


I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
'Interlocking Grid Panel'
'Circle Frames'
'Just love our Story title'
I began by applying some white gesso to my dark background paper.
I then added some spritz in bright blue and lime.
I used a new stencil and heavy gesso to create the white lines in the background. I got these from Scrap Matrix on a recent shopping spree.  I adore their products - mixed media heaven!
I painted the 'Interlocking Grid Panels' in teal paint and then stamped a random background pattern onto them.
Oooh look I spy a 'Kit the Habit' flair!
I painted the 'Circle Frames' in a bright blue paint and then also added some stamping.
Underneath the photo, there are lots of layers and strips of patterned paper, and also a pocket.
My brother's and my story is quite traumatic, and as it has details in the journaling that I didn't want everybody to read, I tucked it into a pocket.
A very therapeutic process, getting some of those thoughts down on paper.

 I added some quotes that suited the story, and finally I added my title.
 I chopped off the 'Just Love' section and left it as 'Our Story', as this suited the layout much better.
I painted the title purple and added Dimensional Magic to give it a glossy shine.
A few flicks of coloured paint, some thread and it's all done!!
Hope this one has inspired you.
I really loved creating with bright colours onto the dark background!
Happy creating, see you again soon
