'don't forget'

Hello there! I would like to share my first August project for 2 Crafty chipboard.

'don't forget'

For this layout I started with this gorgeous photo of the inimitable Frida Khalo, who inspires me so much. If you have never seen her art before please go here to read more about her.
I loved this pose and the texture of the wall behind her and I thought this Prima 
'Timeless Memories' paper was just perfect for this page.

Here are a few close ups...

I saw on my friend (and Lead Designer at Scraps of Elegance) Lisa Novogrodski's blog 'Living in Color' some Stampendous embossing powders called 'Encrusted Jewels' that I had to have. I bought some in several different colors, here I used a copper powder and then I embossed over that using white embossing powder with gold glitter on my 2 Crafty chipboard called 'Groovy Flowers'.

I also used some chipboard called 'Flower Bunch', and for these I painted them with a coat of white acrylic paint and then used some pink and peach gelatos to add color. I rubbed the edges with dark brown ink to give them an aged look.

For some incredibly inspiring and beautiful projects using 2 Crafty Chipboard please visit their blog here. To find out where to buy 2 Crafty products please go here. And don't forget to check out the 2 Crafty Youtube channel here.

I would like to enter my layout in a challenge I found on 'Evolution Scrap',
called 'Peach Mood'...for more info please go here.
I was inspired by the flowers and the peach tones.

Finally I used some of my new Finnabair stamps....I can't seem to do a page without

I hope I have inspired you a little today...
Thanks so much for visiting!
