Sweet Dreams Canvas & Invisible Crown LO (2Crafty Chipboard DT Reveal)

Welcome to my monthly 2Crafty DT reveal!

I'm sharing with you today 2 very girly projects.

First is this very soft and sweet canvas I made for my friend Nathalie
who is expecting a baby girl in November and whose baby shower I attended last month.

This canvas was part of my gift to her and baby, created to match with baby's nursery.

I added a picture of my niece Ella when she was born to be able to give you a better 
idea of what it will look like once Nat puts a photo of her baby girl.

Of course, I used a lot of 2Crafty Chipboard on my canvas, 
starting with the lovely "Sweet Dreams" title.

In the close-up image below, you can also see the largest of the "Circle Revolution Frames"
and some stars from the "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars".

 All the chipboard pieces were painted in the same manner using the same products,
mostly white acrylic paint, distress stains (pink or brown), and champagne pearl paint.

On my tag, I added a tiny heart, also from the "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars"
and I bordered the picture with a piece of the "Adornment Set 2".

Of course, none of my more girly projects for 2Crafty would be complete without lots of flowers.
Most of the flowers are from Petaloo.
I added a piece from the "Leafy Shrub Set 1" to one flower cluster...

and a piece from "Leafy Shrub Set 2" to the other flower cluster.

This is my favourite of all the Leafy Shrubs offered by 2Crafty
Check them all out on the website HERE.

 I included a dragonfly metal charm
which was part of a keychain that I don't use anymore.
It matched the colours of the canvas so much, I thought it would be a perfect addition.

 And last, but not least, I cut up a leftover piece of the "Doily Border"
to add in the left hand corner with a button and some twine.

Papers used are a combination of Authentique and My Mind's Eye.

My 2nd share is a bit brighter and gives homage to all the Princesses out there
like my niece Ella!

At first, I wasn't too sure about this one.  
I had such lovely and distinct 2Crafty chippies to work with
and I wanted them to emphasize them the best way possible.

I also wanted to capture the essence of the princess because of the pictures,
Ella posing with some of her favorite Disney Princesses.

I used several big chipboard pieces, including the "Ornate" border, 
the "Iron Fence" and the "Iron Gate" 
as well as the "Always wear your Invisible Crown" title.

You see here the "Iron Gate" which I covered with pewter Perfect Pearls.

Pink, blue and sparkly white flowers for Princess Ella...
And her very own shiny crown!

The "Bridal Carriage" was perfect for this royal theme.

I used some paints, stains, perfect pearls to colour it
and then adorned it with lots of jewels.
