1st Swim created by Tracey Thorne

 Welcome back to the blog and with my share for you today I have worked with more of the Chit Chat range. I love getting the kit and using it up - all the little bits and pieces that are left over from other layouts are easy to add in to make more great pages of memories.

I have used a base of 350gsm white cardstock and to this I have added the Chit Chat A4 stencil Linear and made a mix of Colourblast Marine Dye ink and water. I have generously painted this over the stencil not worrying too much about it bleeding through as this will help add more colour to the page. I have also added a little of the blue to the left of the page as this is where the photo will go and needed it to balance through I have then allowed this to dry.

I have used the Chit Chat  A5 stencil OXOXO with black ink and a blending tool. I added two rows of the crosses down the page. I have then mixed a little Colour Mica Powder in Envy & Colour Shimmer dust in Peacock with a little Modelling paste to use through the Chit Chat A6 stencil Marked. I have used this in varying places on the layout trying to follow the lines of the A4 stencil markings.

I have mounted my photo on black cardstock and added a little foam tape to the back to help lift this off the page a little. I have used the Chit Chat stamp Happy and chosen the words and the grunge heart to add a little black and help blend the photo into the background. 

I have cut the elements from a few of the different pages to help bring this layout together. 
Chit Chat Collection - i love you typed element added to the photo
 Chit Chat Speak - little heart elements and larger xoxo heart
 Chit Chat Hello - you and me card and the blue & green card for layering under the photo
 Chit chat Alpha - a strip of paper to cut into tags. 



After adhering all elements I have added some older Thickers to create the title. I have also drawn a black border approximately half a cm from the outer edge. I hope you love my take on using this  versatile paper range.

Have a great creative week
