I’m back today with my first August project.  I am having so much fun just creating. The chipboard from CE has made it really easy. It’s actually hard to to put it all on one page, oh maybe that’s just me LOL.

This layout is all about me. Well, I know I’m not the only one out there that has a bunch of “selfies” on their phone. I decided to print a few and do a layout. It provided me the perfect opportunity to use some more of the title words. I am just loving them. I’m not really a title person on my layouts, but these titles quotes and sayings chipboard pieces are helping me get over it.

So here is my layout:

CE July 2

I just loved this color combo. I used selfie title, flourish set 18, feathers and flourish set 26. For the flourish at the left, I used a sponged and dabbed on some gesso for a textured look before I painted it. Then I just highlighted it with some stickles (man, I had to dig those things out). The feather, The bottom flourish and the title all got the same treatment, just some metallic acrylic paint and highlighted with stickles. The pieces have a lot of shimmer in person.

Here are some close ups of the pieces.



Thanks for stopping by the blog. See you next month with some more projects to share.
