Hey You....2Crafty Chipboard Inspiration

Hi everyone :))
I had such a fab time creating this layout.  I just love altering my backgrounds at the moment and doing lots of random stamping...just being free and not worrying about 'perfect' LOL!!
Adding the chipboard to this layout was such a treat.  I love the different effects you can give your layout just by altering the chipboard..
I have used the following chipboard pieces on this layout:
Chevron Bits
Cassie's Flourishes
Word Bubbles
'Hey You'

How awesome are these 2Crafty Word Bubbles!! I love them and this one was perfect to add as a title to my layout.  My 2 little boys just love to wrestle so there is lots of fooling around in this household.  I primed it with Gesso first and then simply painted some "Pumpkin" Shimmerz.

I added the these stunning Cassie's Flourishes to my flower cluster.  I primed them both with Gesso and then painted with a fine paint brush a mixture of Shimmerz and then some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glad in 'Tide Pool' and then lastly over the top for added depth and colour some Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in 'Island Spring'.

The Chevron Bits were just roughly inked with some Archival Black ink.

A mixture of Prima and  Kaiser flowers and the centre flower is Maya Road one which I have just misted.

Not too long now until our little bubby arrives...only a matter of days now :)))))
