Tracey Campbell Design Team Share

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a great Easter and welcome to April. For my first layout this month I wanted to share an Easter photo that I took of my girls a few years ago, so I teamed the photo with some of the terrific new Easter chipboard designs.

By Tracey Campbell

 Happy Easter

I wanted a soft look to the chipboard to compliment the photos so I simply painted the chippy with white Gesso and added a touch of Ice Stickles. From the close ups you can see that it is certainly an effect technique.

Baby Girl

I have used two different chipboard products in this layout of Paige, my youngest daughter. I wanted to dress the chippy up a bit so I have used a variety of techniques, I will explain more of the techniques in the close up photos that follow below.

I heat embossed a fine butterfly stamp with holographic embossing power and white Versa Ink onto the raw chipboard then painted some mist over the top, the embossing resisted the painted mist and left a lovely looking delicate butterfly. Next I cut off the small butterfly and heat embossed it with an aqua embossing powder and finished off with a bit of stickles to give a little more sparkle.On the leaves and the vines I used my Copic Markers to give a very light colour.


With the title "Baby Girl" I once again grabbed the holographic embossing power, but this time with a Petal Pink Versa Ink. Once I heated it up I thought that the pink was too light so I inked with a darker pink and used more of the holographic embossing power over the top. To finish off the title I adhered the small butterfly that I cut off the "Butterfly Corner" on top of the dot over the letter "I".

In this layout of my oldest daughter Bronte I have used four different chipboard pieces that I wanted to be highlighted so I grabbed my black ink and simply coated them all black. Such a simple technique but so stunning and effective when used in bulk.

I love it when my girls sit together long enough so I can get a photo of them. Such "chalk and cheese" in looks and everything that they do. On this layout you may recognise the chipboard hearts from my post last month, they are some of the pop out centres from the Heart Frames, they have gone such a long way and I still have more left over to use.
Another simple but effective technique used; I just painted them with pink acrylic paint and attached either some gems or a twine bow.

Sweet Girl

I wanted a kind of modern vintage look to this layout as I really love the photo of Paige with the goggles and the swimming cap on and the Instagram touch added a whole olden day feel. I have teamed the Memory Maze chipboard with some white paint and clear gem stones for a classic look.
