Always radiate sunshine

Hello all, here is page 2, from the chalk studio line of My Mind's Eye. I love this paper!!!

Ok, the 4 main papers on this page are: "Beautiful Ride", but we use the back side of it - the green stripes. "the best day ever" which we are going to fussy out all along the chalk line. "just be" and "chalk talk"

Distress the edges of Beautiful ride, and ink the edges with Pumice stone distress ink. Glue the cut out "best day ever" piece to the center of the green stripes. Spray the doily and flowers with a black or dark gray glimmer mist.

Choose a postcard from the sheet, trim it, distress the edges and mat with a green cardstock. The corners of the postcard indent ( like a ticket ) so make sure you trim the green mat to follow the indent. Ink both pieces with pumice stone, and glue together. 

Glue down the doily, I found it easier to glue the paper and lay the doily down, It was fragile and kept ripping with the tape runner. Then layer a strip of the words, you can use your favorite part of the :just be" to layer across the page. Then place your photo mats, pink mat - 4.5 x 4.5 and a smaller gray mat 4.25 x 4.25, then your photo will be 4x4 and the photo over lay can be glued with vellum adhesive to the edges of the over lay. The smaller photo is 2.5 x 2.5 and a gray mat of 2.75 x 2.75 and the pink mat 3x3. I placed pearls or rhinestones into the indent corner of the postcard, and adhered the flowers. Some of the flowers had centers, if they didn't I used either a gem or a mini rosette flower. String the banner and attach near the top. Done! Happy chalking!
