The Bright Contrast Layout
With Yulia Pospelova

Hello, my creative ones!
Today Yulia Pospelova is with you again and here's my new project.
 As you know, the dreadful situation is not so simple in many countries
and I'm really worried about all of you & all my friends.
Take care of yourself and your beloved ones.

 While I can't go outside, I'm getting more and more creative,
 after all, it helps to relax while being in such unusual circumstances.

The theme of my layout was chosen for some reason.
People love to travel, but while it is impossible, I suggest you to surround yourself
by your little dreams.

 I used such 2crafty chipboard: 

Have you noticed this path on my layout? I have wanted to make
 something like this for such a long time!

I've chosen a small and medium dial from the ClockFace Discs and covered it with the yellow embossing powder. Combined with a grey chipboard, I've got a brown-gold color.
 This is an amazing discovery!

I've taken three parts from Sequences Negative Beats and covered them with black gesso.
On the right side, I just sprayed them with different colors and also I added white dusting
 to the chipboard on the left under the picture. This was supposed to make the snow illusion.

I covered the Light Bulbs with the embossing powder and added it to my layout

Thank you all for visiting.
I will be very happy to read your comments.

"Doilies" are both embossed with a gorgeous teal color embossing powder from Lindys.

The title, "Magical" is from the "Fine word set 2" 
and is simply sprayed with a gold spray from 13@rts.

You can also observe one chippie from de "6x4 phrase sticks 5".

Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful
Layout by Elena Martynova

Hello crafty friends!

Hoping you are all keeping well in these difficult days and staying positive!

We are forced to stay at home, which gives more time for creativity. 
Finally, I can implement all my ideas that have accumulated in my notebook.

I made this layout using a beautiful paper collection  
and also the best chipboards from 2Crafty.

It has one main photo with a beautiful girl that I found on Pinterest.
But there are also some old framed photos that create part of the background 
and add atmosphere to the layout.

"Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful"

I created a layout with this absolutely gorgeous Flourish Adornment Set
I spent a lot of time decorating it. Several layers of paint, clear glossy, and more strokes of gold paint.
 It was interesting to add and add new layers.

The inscription was painted black and added volume and 
shine with black embossing powder.

My page is about generations of people which are forever linked.
 We keep portraits and photos of our ancestors and remember them in our hearts. 
I added a Mini Fob Watches as a symbol of the transience of time.

The Artdeco Heart added lightness to the layout and
emphasized the elegance and refinement of the girl in the photo.

Some close up photos:

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

Have a wonderful day and be inspired.
Cheers, Elena.

Layout By Di Garling

Hi there 2Crafty friends, thanks for stopping by.
I hope you are all safe & well.

 Today I have another layout to share with you to hopefully inspire you just a little.
I was inspired to used this gorgeous little chippie shutter set by my team mate Charmane,
who used it on her project the other day. It is such a sweet little chipboard piece.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used....
Mini Flourish Bits
Window Shutter Set
Fine Word Set #3

So after firstly base coating all my chippie pieces in white gesso,
I then proceeded to roughly colour the gorgeous little
"Window Shutter Set" 
with some paint which I simply applied with my finger.

I used a couple of pieces from the "Mini Flourish Bits" to pop out
of the flower clusters & these were coloured with a pigment ink pad.

 My title, "Moments" is from the "Fine Word Set #3" & I simply treated
in the same as I did for the Flourish Bits.

I hope you like my layout today & that perhaps it has inspired you
to get yourself one of these little "Window Shutter Sets" too. I just love them.

Stay safe & well & until next time

"Just You"
Canvas by Marie Sabatier

Despite the difficult situation in which we currently live, it is important to continue to live by helping ourselves morally with our families, our friends, our occupations.

I hope that my first creation of this month of April will bring you a little inspiration to make you want to create.

I chose to create a canvas with this magnificent "Corner Heart Spray" chipboard

"Just you"

2Crafty Chipboards used :

- Just You
- Corner Heart Spray
- Lattice-Heart Set
- Tiny Leaf Stems

I applied a layer of white gesso on each chipboard.

For the "Corner Heart Spray" chipboard I applied a layer of white crackle paste.
This gives an aged effect.

To stick I used double sided with foam it gives relief.
For the little hearts I applied very light blue embossing powder.

For the "Lattice Heart" and "Tiny Leaf Stems" chipboards I applied "Café au lait" embossing powder.
I chose very pastel shades.

To finish with the title I also worked with embossing powder. 
I like the soft effect of these pastel shades.

Here it is finished, I hope that you will have liked it and that during a few minutes you will have forgotten this sad world.

Take advantage of the time to create and above all take care of yourself!

Live Your Dream with Emma

Hi Everyone, Emma with you all.
I hope everyone is doing ok and are safe in this unusual time.
Today I hope I can inspire and help take your mind off the outside world for just a small time.
I really enjoy Steampunk themes and so today's layout is a 'pretty' version of that, using awesome chipboard to compliment the theme.

Chipboard used:

Harlequin Clumps
Decorative Dangling Bits Set1
Steampunk Cog Strips
Fancy Clock Hand Set2

The perfect choice for this theme!

Most of the chipboard is painted white and then coated with 3 different emboss powders.
A chunky Pink one and a smooth shiny pink one, mixed with a smooth silver. And I love how the soft pink looks against the green, they really compliment each other.

The Harlequin clump I coated with a distress oxide and then I clear embossed.

I just love the Fancy Clock Hands so much, will need to add these to my stash so I never run out. They are perfect with any layout but I love how they look on this one especially.

I hope this has been a small distraction and inspires you to have a play in your scrap room at some stage.

 Stay safe everyone and I will see you all very soon.

Emma xx
