Always & Forever- 2 Crafty Monthly reveal part 1

Its my turn again at the 2 Crafty Blog today and here is my first creation for this month.
I created 2 Shabby Chic layouts this month, quite different from my usual mixed media layouts but still using similar techniques.

For this monochromatic layout, I used the Floral Branch and the Love Bird Swing. I simply painted them in a tan colored paint and then doodled on them with a brown pen.

I used lots of matching Prima flowers to decorate around the branches and photo.

As this is a picture of my husband and I, I decided to use the title Always and Forever. I also painted it in light acrylic paint and inked it with brown fluid chalk edger.
Papers: Basic Grey
Chipboard: 2 Crafty
Flowers and metal bird: Prima
resin nest: The Trinket Track
Branch Bark fluid chalk edger by Prima
gesso, cheese cloth
brown pen
crafter’s workshop brick template
