We Adore You Two (2Crafty DT Reveal - Part 1)

It's time for my DT reveal over at the 2Crafty blog where i share with you 3 layouts featuring many wonderful 2Crafty chipboard pieces.
 
Right in the midst of a cold white Winter here in Canada, I thought I'd go bright, bold and beautiful with my creations for 2Crafty this month, starting with this very Summer-inspired layout.
 
 This is a brand new layout inspired by the February challenge at Once Upon a Sketch as well as the Mixed Media challenge over at Berry71bleu.

As you know, every Once Upon a Sketch challenge is about adding journalling onto your layout.  This month's journalling theme is "Totally addicted to...", and this is the beautiful sketch that was provided as inspiration:

I added my journalling on a tag that i slipped behind the picture.


Over at Berry71bleu, the February challenge is to mix it up with 'mixed media'!
I did just that, using a variety of products to add texture and colour to my layout, from molding paste, embossing powder, gesso, glimmer mist, acrylic glaze to paint.

 For the title, I combined the "Adore You" piece with some "Dainty Alphabet"
which I heat embossed with black embossing enamel.

You see here a beautiful peacock "Feather" along with the "Leafy Silhouettes"
tucked behind my flowers.  They were treated with molding paste and acrylic silk glaze.
And lining the right edge of my layout are the "Evan's Swirls".
 
A few of "Sharon's Butterflies" were the perfect add-on 
for this whimsical Summery layout.

 I love all of 2Crafty Adornment sets...  The purple piece comes from "Adornment Set 3".

Come back tomorrow for some more 2Crafty inspiration!
