Bursting with happiness !!

I am so excited to reveal 
my very first layouts as a Design Team member for

a big thankyou to Vanessa and Di 
for having me as part of this awesome team of creative talents 

 This layout is loaded with stunning chippies 
as I was creating this page I kept adding and adding more and more
I guess it has something to do with the magnificent photograph 
taken by the super multi talented 
Deryn Mentock
thanks so much Deryn for allowing me to use this photo
pop over to see the stunning metal jewellery Deryn creates .

 I have used two Fob watches on this layout ,
 this one is inked and placed among the cluster of flowers and foliage .
this divine  Tahnyas border is inked in Versa Color ink/ celadon
 and poked under the mounted photo, giving texture and interest 
around the edge of the photo .

above is the Fob Watches   which I inked with Versa color ink / celadon
and inserted it into a circular metal frame . 
I inked the Bella Flourish in Celdon Versa color ink and added a splash of gesso .

the foundation for this layout is Tim Holtz Dark Kraft Paper .
I love the look of teal and kraft .
I layered several papers , added clusters of Green Tara flowers 
and of course the 2crafty chippies .
warm thanks to Deryn for the use of this magnificent photo .

my second Layout starring my beautiful GD, Ella Jai xoxo
photo by

here I used a foundation of Prima paper , layered over Dark Kraft .
stamping , gesso and washi tape add texture to the paper.
the leafy foliage is from Cottage Cutz . 
I trimmed the Parisian Border inked them in Tim Holtz Distress ink /rusty Hinge and layered
the pieces under the mounted photo .

I inked the fencing wire panel in Tim Holtz distress ink/Rusty Hinge. 
Again I trimmed the panel and only used a small piece on the corner under the blooms .
I love to cut the chipboard and use the left over pieces on other layouts.

here I have used a tiny left over piece from the corner elegant set
sometimes all I require is a tiny piece to fill a small gap .

my third layout today
I created a month ago

 here I used the remaining pieces of the Parisian Border, treated with gesso and when dry dabbed with Versa color ink/ rose .
I chose to draw attention to the white bloom
by placing the tiny Henris frame and butterfly over it .

thanks for dropping by
and hope I have inspired you .
bye for now
