I’ve been away for the past week taking a much needed family vacation!! I don’t usually like announcing it on public media (facebook, blog) because there are some “mean” people out there that could take advantage of an empty house if they knew we are gone!!
I apologise for not visiting everyone’s blogs. This week is a catch-up week for me. I will try to visit you and leave you some love! in the meantime enjoy my 2 Crafty Reveal!!
**FOR MY GIVEAWAY PRESS HERE**
I was so thrilled to reveal my new creations for 2 Crafty last week. As promised here are the layouts in more detail with an explanation of all the techniques I used and all the chipboard pieces I added. You can also check out their Facebook page for a quick view of the DT’s work.
For this layout about my daughter’s love of horses I used the Horse Riding pack from 2 Crafty.
I painted the title in Adirondack acrylic paint: Sandal. Then I edged it in brown chalk ink. I used a sponge and dabbed it with watered down fluid acrylic: Yellow Ochre and Quinacridone Gold Hue. I used the same sponging technique to make the large yellow heart in the background. Finally I made lines around both hearts with a brown ink pen.
For the grass clumps I simply painted them in brown acrylic paint. I liked how they add volume to the page and set the scene.

For the Lamp Post I covered it in Martha Stewart’s white texture paint. Then I edged it in Cocoa colored chalk ink to match the page. I used the same ink for the masking on the layout.
For the You & Me title I painted it with white Gesso. Then using a Crafter’s Workshop template, I dabbed blue chalk ink to make the pattern, Then to soften the look I wiped off excess ink with a baby wipe.
For the Bird I simply dabbed it roughly with gesso
Finally for the flourishes I painted them in gesso too and then dabbed them in different places with Blue Adirondack Acrylic Dabber.
