·                Coat your chippie with a few coats of olive green mist.  Apply green glitter glue to the bird and coat the remainder with Glossy Accents.  Once completely dry, cut from frame and set aside

Base Page

·                Cut C88 003 down to measure 11 ¾ x 11 ¾ inches.  Chalk with brown, distress and adhere, centred to your Fabscraps burgundy cardstock
·                Use both of your Fabscraps stencil and a blending tool to apply a diamond shaped design to your background page – plum inks and olive inks.  Try not to use the entire design here, but rather elements and shift your stencil around
·                Select your favourite script based stamp, and randomly stamp (darkest brown) around your stencilled element
·                Apply random droplets of cranberry and olive mist and set your base page aside to dry


·                Fussy cut some proteas and the fairy element from C88 003 and C88 004. 
·                Matt your photograph onto some olive cardstock and distress the edges
·                Take two of the circular frame element die cuts from your carders pack and cut them in half; chalk all edges with brown
·                With the layering, you will have to judge the sizes based on your photograph.  Working from the photograph down, start to cut squares and rectangle shapes from C88 004, C88 003 and two paper pieces (greenish side) from your carders pack.  Chalk all edges with brown and distress before you adhere.  As you move through your stages of layering, tuck in and around them, your fussy cut flowers and the circular element die cuts

Finishing Touches

·                Adhere your title chippie above your photo, slightly off centre, using Tombow
·                Using a fine tipped black pen, doodle a frame around all your layered pieces, highlight some of the stencilled elements and also around your base page

·                Apply swipes of glitter glue to your proteas and the fussy cut fairy
