July Reveal Life's Good by Lindy Gillespie

                                                     Morning everyone and I hope it's a fine day
                                                              in your part of the world
                                              Today I have 3 projects featuring 2 Crafty Chipboard.
                                    'Life's Good' 

                                                                 On the first layout called Life's Good
                                                                 Whenever I visit the coast, I find
                                                             just sitting and watching the sea is so calming.

                                                                       So the Title was just perfect.
                                                        On all the chipboard I have used the same technique
                                                       first I like to seal the chipboard with a coat of Gesso,
                                                                  each were painted with distress paint,
                                                                          and just dabbed a little
                                                                          gold paint on each piece..

                                                                           Products used
                                                                                 Life's Good
                                                                               Cartia's  Swirl
                                                                            French lace border
                                                                                Birds in flight 
                                                                          Tiny Kathleen frame



                                                The bird was treated in the same way as above,
                                              and also stamped with a distress stamp.

                                              Behind the frame i covered the circle with some paper
                                                       and edge it with some gold paint

                                                           Summer Days

                                                     This layout is also based on the seaside,
                                                     the photo was taken a few summers ago.
                               All of the chippies on this layout were firstly given a coast of Gesso
                                     and I just dabbed some ink using  Jumbo Java.
                                                           Chipboard used

                                                            Summer Days
                                                            Funky Heart
                                                            Summer leaf stem
                                                             Allegra Frame
                                                             Mixed buttons 


Flower: prima, Petaloo and Handmade 
Paper: Prima, Basic Grey.

                                        'Treasure Sunday Mornings'

                                            This layout you would have seen on my blog,
                                       it was for Emma Stafrace"s challenge over at Page Drafts
                                               I've used Two chipboard on this layout.
                                                 The lovely Clock Face which I have cut into sections
                                           to use on different layouts, and the Sybill Name Plates 
                                           and I cut them in half and placed one in each layer.
                                           The title Treasure came from the Friendship mini words.

*sigh* your photos are just the best Lindy, would so love to sit next to you just soaking in everything there by the sea. There is something so very special and tranquil about all of these pages, the colours and the feel to them are simply amazing. Spent the whole day with MIL today, it's her 88th birthday. Went pretty good considering. xoxoxox
