My May DT projects for 2 Crafty Chipboard

Hi There!
Today I share my May design team projects for 2 Crafty Chipboard...

For my first project, a layout
'Three nine'

AND I have also created a video tutorial!!

Please watch the VIDEO tutorial to see what steps I took to achieve the end result these chipboard pieces....

I will however share a couple of close ups!

 I have used the Number words to create my title... 

The Funky arrows & 2016 date

& some ATC - Mini butterflies....

for my second project, another layout...

'Dream Big'

& these are the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I've used...

Gave few thick coats of gesso to my title Dream BIG, once dried added a few tones of blue ink to the BIG.....

Gave the same gesso treatment to these Vintage Hot Air Balloons, inked one with a mid blue, the other with a teal & finished these off very lightly rubbing over & around the edge with black ink....

Incorporated some Fencing wire panel by inking it with sliver ink & cut it into smaller pieces & placed them throughout my page...

As I didn't want to loose any of the detail/character to the Arrow heart, I gave it a ever so lightly layer of ink & attached  a 2016 which I inked lightly with  royal blue ink.....

I also added a few raw dots which I got from the centers 
2 Crafty chipboard - Dotty bits......

More Than Words May's Challenge

It's time to reveal for May's challenge for More Than Words 
Word Inspiration - MOMENT
Creative Challenge - CLOCKS

What does the word MOMENT inspire you to create?
You can choose to use the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it.  Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you if not already obvious.

For this month's CLOCKS creative challenge, we ask that you use a clock or any part of a clock on your project.  You can choose from dials, hands, cogs and gears, pocket chains, pendulums or all of the above.

My design team layout....

'Father & Daughter Moment'

 "This MOMENT was just perfect for this challenge.  As my chipboard title indicates, my page is all about a special "father & daughter moment"

  For the creative challenge, I have used numerous CLOCK images as well as 2 Crafty Chipboard hands/dials."
