Love Canvas - By Karan Gerber

"Love Canvas"
by Karan Gerber

Hi Friends and welcome  2 Crafty blog today.
 Its Karan here to host the blog for you and I have a mixed media project to share.

I started with a 6x8 canvas, I primed with Gesso, added some texture paste and then baked embossing powders from Seth Apter manufactured by Emerald Creek Craft Supplies right here in Canada.
 I love them, I have mixed some of the first line and some of the newest colors on this project.

This little project will be perfect for the new couple too add to a photo stand and they can remember the moments captured in this beautiful photo. 
The clock Face I embossed with clear embossing ink and used Emerald Creek Taos Sunset baked embossing powder, its so gorgeous in real life, it makes that chipboard look like real metal. I also did the same to one of the Doilies 

The photo frame:  I applied a coast of clear embossing ink and went over with desert sand baked embossing powder and while heating dropped a bit of ancient amber

I added in a couple sprigs of the Leafy Twig Branches in under the flowers just to add a bit of greenery.

 I used the "Love" title from the fine word set 1, and i just inked this with vintage photo distress ink and dabbed a bit of vintage gold wax. 

I also used Tahnyas 6 Inch border and just heat embossed it with white embossing powder, I attached it to the Polaroid Frame, its so finely detailed I just love it and I didn't want to hide the detail. 

Thank you for dropping by the 2Crafty Blog today I hope you enjoyed by project

Fantasy Layout Inspiration by Elena Martynova

 Hello scrappy friends!
 My new layout is about spring, waking up nature, new discoveries and impressions!
I let my fantasy spread its wings and sent her flying free :)))
No rule, restrictions, patterns and norms!
The composition was formed easily and naturally, and bright details revived the layout.

In the background is a sheet of paper from ABStudio.
I also added pages from the old dictionary and paper from Prima from the Forever Green collection.

 I made the leaves of the oak from the  Foliage Set 2
bright green as the first spring leaves.

To support the mushroom cap on the card at the top of the page, 
I painted the Turkish Lanterns  in  flashlight bright red. 
I really like how it attracts the eye!

 Added such a remarkable phrase

  I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

 But that's not all for today!

From scraps of paper and small chippys I made these ATCs.

  I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

'Shine' Layout
by Lisa Amiet

Hello all! 
It's Lisa here today to share some scrappy goodness with you.
I have a layout to share 

This layout features my daughter, 
I have gone for a lovely floral paper design.

For this layout I have used one of the beautiful borders from the 'Lacy Border Set 1',
which contains 3 different designs. 
I have finished it with white embossing powder.

I have also used two of the flourishes from the
'Flourish Adornment Set 5',
which I have again embossed white.

I have added them on either side of my page.

I have used the title 'Shine - Script' for this layout, 
finished in white.

Lastly I have used 'Flower Doilies',
tucked into my layers.

You can watch the full process video for this layout below.

I hope you have enjoyed your visit.

Take care

More BOY Inspiration
"Just Me"
By Di Garling

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Di Garling back with you today with another boy layout 
using some fabulous pieces of our favourite 2Crafty Chipboard.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used....
"Just Me" title
Giant Geears
 Steampunk Cog Strip

For the word title I basecoated it in white acrylic paint before
giving it a coat of this lovely "sterling Blue" paint.

 All the cogs & gears were treated the same way.
Firstly I gave them a couple of coats of a brass metallic paint &
when dry I wiped them over with some black ink.

Lots of lovely layers & textures as well as some nice metal bits & bobs.

 A few flowers for texture, but not tooooo many.
I have to show restraint in that department.

Hey presto. All finished.
I hope you like this one.

Until next time.
