Blah Blah Blah by Tracey Campbell

 Hello Bee Arty people, it's Tracey Campbell here today to share my latest creation using the newest collection Chit Chat, designed by Tanya Frond. A fun and funky range with pretty pinks, greens and purples with black grungy accents perfect for males and females.

I've used it to great a layout about how when Bronte was smaller she loved chatting on the phone to her Dad or Grammy.... doesn't happen much anymore. Teenagers!! 

To start this layout I used the XOXO Stencil and spread some clear gesso on to white cardstock . I placed some Os and hearts in rows across the base.

Once dry apply lines of Artist Inks in Slipper and Mermaid across the page, with a thick paint brush.The clear gesso will resist the Artist Ink

Use a paint brush to flick some watered down white gesso across the base. Then repeat with the Mermaid Artist Ink and splatter fine splotches over the base. 

Cut three strips of paper from the She patterned paper, roughly the width of 3.5 cm. Tear off the ends and tear them in half so that you have 6 paper strips. Adhere them across the base, use both sides of the pattern paper.

Using the Road Base Colour Spray flick some liquid over the top of the base.

Using some black Stazon use the rectangular piller stamp form the Scrabble stamp set and press it across the base, over lapping the Artist Ink and She pattern paper. 

Cut 4 rectangles from the She and Chat patterned papers, just slightly larger than a 4x6 inch photo. Distress the edges and angle mat them around the photo. Adhere tot he base, slightly off center, see the final layout for the position.

Fussy cut the two spike speech bubbles from the Speak patterned paper. As I knew I wanted three spiky speech bubbles I drew another one on white cardstock with a black Sharpie pen and then cut it out.

Adhere the spiky speech bubbles around the top right hand corner of the photo. Use the Scrabble piece letters from the Scrabble stamp set and use black Stazon to stamp a title onto one of the speech bubbles. Fussy cut the words Blah, Blah, Blah from the Love Letter title pattern paper and adhere them to the other two speech bubbles.

Use the metal die to cut out a pink and teal female person from the Peeps metal die set and adhere them to the bottom right hand corner. Finish off the page by stamping some heats from the Scrabble stamp set.

Well I hope that you have enjoyed my layout that I have created today with the Chit Chat collection, it is really a versatile range.
