I have to say there are the most beautiful new chippy pieces being released by Your Creative Wings at the moment, I may have gushed... a lot.... over my latest happy mail package!!
The Mini Flutterby Charm 2 is the sweetest little mini charm. I've used acrylic paint in a complimentary peachy shade to the patterned papers, shading to a very pale peach in the centre of the charm. I treated the layered butterfly the same way, with the darker shade in the centre, and the lighter shade towards the edges of his wings.
Some Liquid Pearls add some extra highlights to the piece.
Now who doesn't love bunting... and lace doily bunting at that!? Each individual doily has a removable centre, and I've covered the centres in a patterned paper from the collection and shaded the edges. I've dabbed cream acrylic paint on the lace or outer pieces using a sponge, this allows the detail in the chippy to show through.
The French Window 2 provides a perfect foreground to one of the mother and baby images from the Precious Memories collection. Its like peaking straight through the window of a house and I love how it reinforces the mother & daughter sentiment of the layout. Again this piece has been sponged with acrylic paint and finished with some Perfect Pearls.
The layered floral flourish has an extra flower in the pack to layer. To add extra dimension I've spritzed the flower with some water, let it sit for a couple of minutes and then separated and squished up the top layer of chipboard. I've painted with acrylic paint, adding a little shading to the flowers and buds, and then added Glossy Accents over each bud.

Anyone who has seen a couple of my layouts knows that if I have any opportunity whatsoever to add some gold (or silver) then it's going to end up on the page ha! This layout has gold glitter, gold foil, gold stitching... and some gold heat embossing just for good measure.
I've left the title chippy piece raw because I love how it ties in with the burlap background, and the background of the photo.
To create the gold tipped arrows, paint the rear end of the arrows with acrylic paint, and heat emboss the arrow heads with gold embossing powder.
The new Round Charm set has layers of circles that can be left together, or removed and treated separately depending on how you want to use them. I've separated each piece and chosen different shades of acrylic paint and gold embossing powder to create colourful circles.
A few extra little hearts are the perfect finishing touch to embellish the charms.
