LIfe is one BIG Adventure!

Hi There!

Shell Carman here today. I've been playing with some of Loolabelle's Chevrons & some other bits & pieces.

I don't often do 'pretty' boy pages but I must say that I really enjoy combining masculine & feminine elements onto one page!

I love these new Chevrons. They are so on trend & work well with any style. I have painted some Shimmerz Texturez in Patina to add some texture & a nice pop of teal.

I used some patterned paper to cover the Hot Air Balloon. Simple stick the paper on top & use a sharp craft knife to cut around the shape. To tidy the edges I gave it a light sand with an emery board & inked the edges

I wanted to add some more Orange to my page so I painted the Alphas & Clock with Kaisercraft Acrylic paint in Mango. To grunge the chipboard up & add extra texture I sprinkled some copper embossing powder on while the paint was still wet then dried with a heat gun. The Embossing Powder gives a great metallic finish.

The Honeycomb chipboard is so versatile. It's one of those products that seems to suit any type of page. I have painted these with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze in Oil Slick
