March Inspiration - Two Layouts
By Mary Catt

''A Love Story''

Hello 2Crafty fans!
Mary here with you today and I have two layouts and two video tutorials to share with you.

 The first one is a dreamy layout in pink tones filled with lots of flowers. I used Prima
 Marketing papers from the ''Wild and Free'' collection, Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and
 powders. The flowers are also Prima Marketing and the flairs are from Cuts2luv.

I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL of the procedure.

 Frame Jenna
A Love Story - Title
Leafy Shrub Set 2

I based my page on the More Than Words March challenge.

Some close ups...

To create my background I applied modeling paste through a stencil. When dried,
 I added some color with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.

I heat embossed the ''Frame Jenna'' and the title chipboards with two powders, first with
 ''Gilded Burgundy Brass'' and then with the ''Hollyhock Scarlet Plum''. The chipboards
from the ''Leafy Shrub Set 2'' were embossed with ''Stardust Candy Rose'' Lindys powder.

When everything was glued down, I added some art stones with gel medium.


And the second one was also made with Prima Marketing papers from the 
''Salvage District'' collection, Prima Marketing flowers, Lindy's Stamp Gang
 sprays and powders and a flair from Cuts2luv.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...

I based my page on the Mixed Media & Art March challenge.

And a closer look at the details...

I gave texture on the background with modeling paste and a stencil.
 Then, I used Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to color my page.

I heat embossed the ''Leafy Shrub Set 3'' and the title chipboards with ''Midnight Pewter''
Lindy's powder. The ''Lattice Leaves'' were embossed with ''Oakleaf Olive'' and the little ''Butterflies'' with ''Silver Moon Orchid''.

To finish, I added some Art Stones with gel medium.

   Thats all from me my friends!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

March Projects Plus a PHOTO TUTORIAL
By Kavitha

Hello 2crafty fans, 
 Kavitha here today to share my March projects.This month I
 have a couple of layouts and a canvas to share.

"Magical Garden"

I created a mysterious/magical garden theme layout on
a black background with metallic colors. 2Crafty has lots of
 beautiful flourish designs which are my absolute favorite
and I have used quiet a lot of them in this layout.

The large leafy vine is heat embossed with blue shabby embossing enamel,
I cut them up into two pieces and used among my floral cluster.

I have also used the corner twisted vines with
my embellishment cluster in the corner.

2Crafty chipboards used:
Angel Wings
Corner Twisted Vine
Large Leafy Vine
Ava's Frame
Addy's Butterflies


The main highlight of this layout is Angie's vines. It is so beautiful and big 
enough to cover a lot of area. I heat embossed it using
brown sugar embossing powder, cut up the biggest one into two pieces
and used them on all three sides around the photo.

I heat embossed lattice leaf with gold and used among the floral arrangement.
Finished off the layout with the title "Dream" which is heat embossed with white.

"Living the Dream" - Canvas tutorial

My last project is a canvas with a short tutorial.
I applied a thick coat of black gesso over the canvas and sprinkled some art stones.
Once it dried I arranged an old paint brush, clay/metal embellishments
along with 2crafty chipboard. I gave it another coat of black gesso for the whole canvas.

With a dry brush I colored the raised areas with dark velvet
and watermelon mist acrylic colors

Now for the highlight I used rose gold and violet gold opal magic paints.

March Inspiration Projects by Jaya Raghuvanshi

Hello 2Crafty Fans!

Jaya here with you all today and I have a few projects I made using the gorgeous
2Crafty Chipboards to share with you all. 

My first project is this Canvas.

"You Make Me Happy"

Close up pics-

 I painted the circle revolution frames in emerald green acrylic paints. I covered the
 flower doily in black gesso and dabbed some gold paint here and there for a little highlight. 

The title chipboard has been covered in white gesso. I love how the
white pops against the dark background. 

The Decorative Rod chipboard has once again been covered in white gesso. Once it was dry I applied some soft gel on it and sprinkled some blue fine glitter. I love the sparkly look so much .
