My second creation for 2Crafty Chipboard this month is titled:
I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
'Fir Xmas Tree'
'Summer Leaf Stems'
I painted the 'Summer Leaf Stems' with a few coats of white gesso and tucked them in between my photos.
Next I grabbed the two 'Fir Xmas Trees' and trimmed off the star on the top and the pot on the bottom.
They are the perfect shape for my layout (minus the Xmas feel) as this layout is about taking our USA family to my step-dad's home. He lives in a forest, surrounded by Pines and Gums so these trees were perfect.
I then applied watercolours in various shades of green to achieve a dappled look.
To the 'Sightsee Title', I added a variety of Inks until I achieved a grungy, earthy colour I was happy with.
I placed this on top of my cluster.
I also added in the 'Thistle Shrub'
I left this raw, as I felt it went well with the earthy natural tones of the layout.
I really love all the natural fibres in this layout, and I enjoyed altering the chipboard to match in with this.
My paper and tags are all from Scrap Matrix - my favourite place to get all my scrappy supplies.
So that's it from me today, I'll be back again soon, in the meantime
