Mixed Media CANVAS
By Di Garling

Hi there 2Crafty friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have a little MIXED MEDIA CANVAS to share with you 
& naturally I have used some gorgeous NEW pieces of our favourite
 2Crafty Chipboard.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
10" Angel Wings
Mini Scissors 
"Cherished" title
Mini "Decorative Frame Set" #1

All of the chipboard pieces were given two coats of white acrylic paint
as I wanted them to be really snow white. Both the mini "Scissors" & the "Memories"
title were then given a random brush over with a little watered down aqua paint.

Now the star of the show most definitely has to be these NEW "Angel Wings".
After painting these, the same as before, I then sprinkled them with glitter!!
Oh my goodness, these wings are stunning in real life.
Definitely my new favourite piece of 2Crafty Chipboard.

Lastly I have used a couple of the "Mini Decorative Frames" which I treated the same
as the Angel wings & I have included them into all my layers!!

I am teaching this mixed media canvas as an online class.
If you would like to see more details about it, pop over to my blog.

 Until next time...

loveyoumore ~ by Lisa-Marie

Hi there!

I'd like to share my latest creation featuring my daughter in a moment of deep thought.

These are the pretty chippie pieces I used:

Handdrawn flowers

Flourish Adornment Set 7

I used my Distress Crayons to colour my title and then I used some glitter to highlight it, before topping with Glossy Accents.

My flowers have all been inked with pink and their centres highlighted with glitter. And their leaves have all been topped with white Enamel Accents.

I coloured 2 of my flourishes with a mint coloured mist and topped with Glossy Accents; my third flourish has been misted with gold.

Until next time!

Steampunk Cards By Priya Mishra

 Wish you a Very Happy New Year!
Welcome back to 2Crafty Chipboards blog, Priya with you today 
with my first project for the year using some gorgeous chipboard pieces.

I created two cards in steampunk style,
which is my favorite style to make any project.

2Crafty Products Used:

To begin with, I cut two papers in size 6inches x 4inches and layered them with clear gesso.
I used two different stencils and some texture paste to create some texture.
Using some stamps I created some more depth in the background.

I added colors, using Lindy's magical. Once my background is ready,
I started coloring my chipboards.
I used white embossing powder and heat set them.

I layered the chipboards on my cards. I used some cheese cloth around some area.
I added two Tim Holtz dolls as focal elements.
Sentiment chipboards are from two different sets and they were
also heat set with white embossing powder. 

I hope you like my cards.

By Charmane Sharp

Welcome back to the blog today.

Charmane here to reveal how multiple chipboard pieces
bring so much depth and contrast to a layout.

By varying your finishes slightly they all emerge from my
fussy cut items with contrasting shine and detail.

2Crafty chipboard used...

Mini #Word set 1
Heart Clumps
Pointed Doily Frames
Thick Moroccan Panel
Foliage set 1
Amelia Flower Stems small

Pointed Doilies have a pretty design to suit any layout. After coating all my 
pieces in Gesso I used Tattered Rose Oxide ink to cover the Doily and finished
with a coat of Tattered Rose Embossing Glaze.

I love the different shapes in the Leaves of the Foliage set adding
distinction amongst my embellishment cluster. An application of 
Evergreen Bough Oxide with a coat of Clear Embossing Powder for
a finishing sheen, helps them stand out.

Amelia Flower Stems have great curves to draw your eye, especially
when Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, and Evergreen Bough Oxide inks are applied. 
Complete with a coat of Clear Embossing Powder for shine.
The Moroccan Panel was cut into two pieces to add a little texture from my
clusters. I randomly dabbed some clear embosing liquid over the pieces and
heat set with Tea Dye Glaze. Then i rubbed the Tattered Rose Oxide ink pad
over the top.

Heart Clumps bring some love to my layout with a masculine feel by
coating in Hickory Smoke Embossing Glaze. Tucking around the layout
they add contrast.
My title is short and sweet. Using a domed sponged I blended
Evergreen Bough over it for a more solid colour and then added a coat
of Clear Embossing Powder.

Thanks for stopping by and I will share my next creation with you shortly.

Until next time...

"Memories" by Robin Schelin

Hi everybody! Welcome back to the blog.  

Now that the Holidays are behind us, it's time to settle in for some quality crafting time! 

Even thought it's still verrrrry cold outside, I decided to do a Winter layout with some pretty pink flowers to remind me that Spring is coming, and make feel warmer! lol!
Hope you like it.


2Crafty used:

Spring Flower Bunches
Lusius Swirl
Holly Twig Branches
Eve's Border 

First of all, I gave all the Chipboard a nice coating of white gesso to seal it.

Here is the beautiful Lusius Swirl. I first painted it with white Acrylic Paint, then heat embossed it with white Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. then tucked it in behind the photo.

On the Spring Flower Bunches, I painted them with pink, bronze and white Acrylic Paint trying to pull in the colors from the top patterned paper.

For the Holly Twig Branches that are here and on the bottom in the large flower cluster, I first painted them with grey Acrylic Paint, then swiped light grey paint over them.

I painted the title, Memories, with 3 different colors of pink Acrylic Paint for an ombre effect.

Eve's Border was painted with white Acrylic Paint wanting it to be a subtle separation between the 2 patterned papers.

The little swirlies were cut off of Lusius Swirl. Since the bottom swirl wasn't going to show because of the flowers on the right of the photo, I decided to cut it off, and cut the other 2 off of the one I didn't use. These were also heat embossed with white Ultra Think Embossing Enamel.

And there you have it. A Winter/Spring layout.  
Hope you like it and it inspires you in your creating!
Until next time, stay safe, and stay scrapbooking!

My Mother My Friend ~ by Lisa-Marie

 Hello 2C Fans!!

Today I'm sharing a layout featuring my mom and I.

I made use of these little gems when creating my layout:

I used a very dark cranberry mist on my title and a silver mist on my doilies - both elements were given a coat of Glossy Accents.

I used different coloured gel pens to highlight and decorate my flourish and I finished it off with a few swipes of glitter.

I used varying shades of pink Distress Crayons and Gelato's on my Flower Vine, smudging and blending with my finger as I went along, to achieve a shaded effect.  I highlighted it with a white gel pen before cutting it to fit on either side of my layered cluster.  They too, were given a coat of Glossy Accents.

Until next time!
