Love the way you smile

Hello all, Rhonda here to share with you my 2 DT Projects for this month...

This is my "Love The Way You Smile" layout
and is my first project for this month.
I created this layout using some of the gorgeous new 
Chipboard and Stencils available from 

I started off using a cut down piece of 12 x 12 Patterned Paper then
 decided on using ST 1008 Cracks and instead of using texture paste 
I used a new acrylic paint which gave the background a real 
shimmery affect! 

I then cut 2 smaller pieces of paper from the same paper range and distressed 
the edges of them both. On the top one I added some hot pink acrylic paint to some texture paste and used the ST 1031 Hearts

I then added the quote from 


 I used CB 5132 Chains 01 to encase Rochelle's face, and added a few 
of the words from CB 1238 Scrap Words 24  and then added the 
angelic wings CB 1120 Wings 01  

 I finished of using off using all the chipboard pieces by adding 
CB 2003 Page Borders 02 after cutting it in half and adding opposite pieces to
 opposite corners to give it the look that it goes all the way underneath the layout... 

Then I found a piece of recycled corrugated card board and have 
used that as the backing... 

My 2nd Project is a set of three tags...

For these I used chipboards, charms & stencils
I incorporated Cape Cod Coral into
all three tags to make them look like a set.
I added to this theme by placing a piece of lace on each but
only charms on the outer tags.
I also dyed a piece of seam binding with the same Cape Cod Coral, 
this is tied to all 3 tags.
I used several pieces of chipboard over the 3 tags
using different techniques on each.
