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 layouts...lol)
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
