You & Me- 2 Crafty October Reveal



It feels like its been a while since I've posted on the 2 Crafty blog and yet another month is upon us and I'm really happy to be part of this amazing team!!

This is a bright, colorful page of my daughter and I. I used lots of different mediums and textures to create it!!
I used Glass bead gel, Gesso, White opaque flakes and of course Shimmerz sprays and paints.





I truly love the beautiful deep, rich colors of the Shimmerz paints they compliment the Prima flowers so well.
If you would like to order some Shimmerz for you to use press HERE and...... if you want to get yourself a free product,  just mention my name in the "Instructions to Merchant" box during checkout and you will receive a free sample of either Dazzlers or Texturez. As I said before, it doesn't get better than that!!


As you can see, I used 2 Crafty's Tiny leaf Stems right in between the flowers. I simply inked them in black fluid chalk.


I also used two types of 2 Crafty frames on this layout. However, I didn't use them to frame a picture, rather I used them to create my layered background. I cut the large postage stamp frame and spread it on two opposite ends of the page. I also layered with the small postage stamp frame set. I tried to create different textures on each of the frames and inside of them to add interesting details to the layout.
