"Today's moment" page by Sabrina Perna

Hi 2crafty lovers!
Sab here to show you my latest project, capturing an everyday moment.

I love so much black and white colour combo, and now I add grey color too!

I've started with a little mixed media in the background and have gone with a grungy feel today.
I have lots of paper layers, mixed with some lace and cotton for a textural contrast.

For my chipboard pieces, the Barbed Chicken Wire and the Frame have both been painted
with Black Gesso, and the alphabet pieces are covered with white gesso and dirtied with grey ink.

Chipboard pieces used:

Hope you like my page, thanks for visiting.
See you soon!

Next up the SUPER cute bird which I have inked 
 with a nice pastel pink, before attaching
it with some foam/dimension tape...

Next I have added two halves of the flower doilies. 
Firstly given them a coat of gesso,
 before inking this with the same pastel pink as the bird!!

Now onto the title 'Shine Bright'
I first gave it a coat of gesso then finished
it with inking parts of the title with no other color, but yellow.... 

Next up I have added 3 Indian feathers..
I started with inking them with yellow ink, then finishing the off 
with rubbing the centres with rose gold wax,
 before adding them into my flower clusters....

Then a couple of pieces from the Foilage set 8, 
where I firstly gave the foilage pieces two coats 
of gesso, before cutting these into even smaller foilage pieces, 
and also adding these thoughout my flower clusters... 

Lastly is this delicate gorgeous Filigree arrow.
Inking this beauty with a purple & attaching this onto my flower cluster...

This moment
by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty fans!

Today I'd like to share a layout I did last week that about one of those little moments of pure joy in life where you remember that being with the ones you love is all that matters.
 Sometimes you're not doing anything special, just sharing a little moment of cuddling and playing, and it is still the most rewarding moment as a mom.

"This moment" 

On the "Chicken wire panel", at the back, I used silver embossing powder and dabbed some black embossing ink on top. For the "Steampunk Cog Strips", behind the button, I applied blue embossing powder roughly and then traced the border with black ink.

On the "Frangy", I applied blue embossing enamel and then traced the borders with black ink.

For the "Frame Alissa", I applied white paint to which I had added blue pigments. Then, once it was dry, I used a sandpaper to give it a more rustic look.

For the title, "This moment", I applied textured embossing powder, giving something of a coal look.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:

Frame Alissa [fr0125]
Frangy [m00121]
Chicken wire panel [m00400]
Steampunk cog strips [m00783]
This Moment [w00526]

That's all for me today!
 I hope you enjoyed this layout and it gave you some ideas for your own creations.
 I will be back in a few weeks with more ideas to share with you guys.
 Until then, I wish you the best.

You Hold The Key To My Heart ~ by Lisa-Marie Watling

Hello there!

 Today I'm sharing with you, a whimsical layout I created, featuring (as always!)
my darling daughter!

 I chose these gorgeous flower chipboard pieces to bring the garden out of the photograph and into my layout.

These are the chipboard pieces that I used:

And here are the direct links to these pretty pieces:

And now for some close up shots of my piece:

I applied some purple Distress Oxide to my title and finished it off with Glossy Accents.

Both the leaves and the oval frame were misted with the same minty green metallic mist; I gave the frame (which was cut apart and adhered above and below my photo cluster) a coat of Glossy Accents.  I coated one of the flowers with teal Distress Oxide.

I gave my other flower a coat of purple Distress Oxide.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Until next time!
