In case you missed it....

These are my 2crafty DT layouts that were featured on the 2crafty blog back on 1st August.
I previously only showed some sneak peeks on my blog, but I'm now going to share the full layouts with you all here :)

Welcomed Solitude - Using the gorgeous 5" Floral Frame and 2 of the beautiful Flying Birds that I have covered in Ranger Crackle Paint.

I also used a Prima Vine & then added a few other Kaiser & Petalloo blooms in amongst the vine.


Some muslin tucked in behind the 5" Floral Frame...and some Kaiser pearls added to the little birds for their eyes :)

The background was created using Crafters Workshop 12x12 template - Cubist, some texture paste mixed with paint & then applied using an old credit card.

 I lightly misted a few paper doilies, then layered & tucked them in under the 5" Floral Frame & flowers...leaving them to pop out to one side.

Ok, now onto the 2nd layout....

It's a girl thing - Using one of the Floral Spray leafy flourishes (my favourite type of chipboard pieces!)....a cute little Birdcage & bird and a little Flourish in my small cluster at the top...and again some paper doilies to one side (just noticed that I did the same thing for both

I added some texture paste to some white paint for the Floral Spray...and then lightly inked over it in spots.  The background is using another CW template - Tile Texture...again with texture paste & paint.

The birdcage  & bird were simply painted & then inked 

The small flourish also had texture paste added to some paint & then lightly inked.

You can find my post on the 2crafty blog HERE...which has a bit more info and details on the techniques used, if you've like to pop over and have a looksie :)

Thanks so much for dropping by...and for all the wonderful comments that everyone leaves.
My apologies for not visiting your blogs much lately, I just seem to be so tired each day after work and there is always so much other stuff to be done. 
I will try to pop over to visit you all just as soon as I can :)  xx

No question about it, the first one just made my heart go boom boom! I adore everything about it, stunning detail work and attention to detail! the second one is very pretty and just beautiful too. You simply cannot create anything that is displeasing to the eye, everything causes serious drooling! :))
