Just sharing my layout for the October Challenge over at the Scrap the Girls Challenge Blog.
Such a beautiful and feminine inspiration board.
The awesome moodboard -
Here are some close ups of the details.
and here is a small photo tutorial on how to achieve the multi-toned colours on the chipboard title and butterflies (which are from WOW - Words or Whatever) :
Grab your chipboard pieces (I deconstructed my butterfly chicken wire piece) and chosen paint supplies, ink, paintbrush and foam brush)
Using the paintbrush - paint the bottom half of your chipboard, I used a gorgeous metallic pink paint by Pebeo
Using the turquoise ink pad - ink the top half by using a dauber or even just the ink pad itself and join the two colours by scraping the foam brush from the middle to the top, scraping some of the pink paint over the top of the turquoise section of the chipboard. That creates your third colour, in this case a pinky purple.
I then used a paint brush to paint some glitter paint in the middle of the butterfly to add some glitz.
For some reason not the best photo but you get the gist :-)
