 Hello Bee Arty Friends,

Not only have I  had a lot of fun using the Chit Chat kit designed by Tanya Froud, I have allowed myself to experiment and as a result have learned a lot. So today I am sharing one of my pages with you using a photo of my daughter who is a busy full time working Mum. As usual I always start with a photo for my inspiration.

1. I love the Linear Stencil and knew I wanted to use it in a different way so did a quick sketch as a guide.

2. I pulled out bits and pieces from the kit that I thought I would potentially use and set them aside. 

3. I chose to work on the 350gsm white cardstock as I had used all my full pages. This comes in handy when you need to use up all those left over bits and it also holds mixed media products well. I cut it back 1cm on the top and one side as I like to mount my work on black cardstock.

4. Using the Linear stencil and CB Black Gesso I stencilled diagonally as shown using only part of the stencil.

5. Next I sprayed with CB Spray Lagoon over the stencil. I wasn't happy with the result so quickly 
dripped some water on it and moved it around to make it run.

6. I glued down a small piece of tissue paper that I had previously dyed with CB Bubblegum Spray.

7. I've randomly stamped over the pink tissue paper with the Scrabble Stamp . Then stencilled over all of this with the  Marked Stencil and CB Deep Water Paste concentrating on the circles on the stencil.

8. I  cut the left background out of the photo along the edge of my daughters body and mounted it onto a piece of the She Paper from the kit 6" x 4" leaving the left side open to enable embellishments to be tucked under.

9. I went back to my original selection of bits and pieces that I thought I could use and fussy cut 
pieces that I now wanted to use. Painted the phone Midnight Shimmer Dust and added some small bits from the String Wreath and Peeps Dies.  Anything I didn't use was  stored in a plastic bag for later use. 

10. I played with them for ages until I came up with the final arrangement focusing on layers and height by using cardboard under the photo and lots of foam tape.

I hope this inspires you to get creative and messy and give this kit a go.
Cheers Judy
