paste again. Applying the paste by using my finger to apply to the 6" Mandala
 & a few of the Autumn and Winter leaves

The rest of the chipboard pieces I started with by giving them coats of gesso... 
The title This is Me has three coats, letting each coat dry before applying the next coat!!!

The 12" Boho floral arrow & Moment Light bulb have a single coat of gesso,
 then finished of the Boho floral arrow by colouring in the flower with Peach & guava 
gelatos AND the peach gelato around the edge of the bulb....

Good Times by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty friends!

Today I have a new winter themed layout I would like to share with you as we enjoy
cold cold winter here in Canada! I took this picture with my son Liam and my
 daughter Mila as we were working to build a giant snowman, just moments
 before Liam ate the carrot we had kept for the nose!!

"Good Times"

For the women in the "Mini Family Icons", I've used rose-gold wax and inked the
 contour with black ink. On the boy and girl, I used embossing ink and on the boy
 I also added silver embossing ink. I also inked the contour of both.

I've applied charcoal paint on the "Mini Branches" and a teal glaze on top.

On the "Clock Face Discs", I've applied blue-white embossing enamel.

For the title, "Line Words - Goodtimes Borders", I've cut out the "Goodtimes" and 
shortened the lines connected to the first and last letters. Then I applied
 silver wax and inked the contour with black ink.

 See you in February for my next reveal.

Once Upon a Dream
Layout by Marie Claude Rodier

Hi 2 Crafty fans! Marie Claude back today to share another
project with fantastic 2Crafty chipboards.

This time I was inspired by a spring theme and created an almost
monochromatic layout using earthy tones.

I started by applying white gesso on my title.
I then used an avocado green Lindy's Magicals to color it.

Once dry, I embossed it with a clear shiny powder over which I dried brushed white gesso.

I basecoated the groovy flowers and keyhole with vintage gold wax and
then applied brown Gelatos over them to get a vibrant contrast.

I used gold/green embossing powder on the leafy twig branches and
then dry brushed white gesso on top of them.

Embrace Today - with Karan Gerber

HI Friends, its Karan Gerber back to share some Christmas layout
Inspiration with you, using some fabulous 2 Crafty Chipboard. 

"Embrace Today"

I loved the titles from 2Crafty, they have some incredible detail and perfect to showcase
 those special photos.  Here is a close up of the title detail on this project. 

I inked the title with aged mahogany distress ink, dabbed a bit of wax,
sprinkled some frosting powder and heat set. 

The  foliage set 5 and the leafy  shrub I colored with Cosmic Shimmer, dabbed a bit of 
vintage gold wax and sprinkled again with a bit of frosting powder. 

The brick chipboard I did a coat of white gesso and sprinkled frosting powder.  I cut 
the brick apart and added it as a detail layer and added it in random spots on the project.

I tucked the leafy shrubs in under the flower layers, love how they turned out.

Under the title I have added a bit of the brick chipboard and dabbed a bit of vintage
 gold wax. You can see a leaf set from the Foliage set tucked in under the photo too.

I hope you enjoyed my project today and I look forward to inspiring you again next month.

LO Wedding by Elena Martynova PLUS a VIDEO TUTORIAL

 Hello scrappy friends!
 Don't you think January is a very romantic time of the year?
Nature, as if the bride wore a white dress and embellished veil of frost.
She Is impatient waiting for the groom and dreams that 
he is about to come and melt her heart with warm spring rays :)))

Here is my page for the blog 2Crafty Chipboard with the same mood!
 I'm waiting for spring, I really want warmth and sun. first flowers and green leaves.
 Unfortunately, my wedding photos are far from perfect, and it is difficult to do work with them. 
So photo for page I took from Pinterest.
 A wonderful dress for the bride and no less gorgeous shoes won my heart!
 And if you want you can always insert another photo:)))

Hope you like and I have video for you to watch if you would like to see my process.

I took two sheets of 12'x12 ' paper by Lemoncraft.
The bottom sheet is very beautiful-with wood print and lace pattern!
Cut a lot of roses and added lace.
 The main decoration of the page is chipboard 2Crafty.
I covered it with two layers of embossing powder by Lindy's.
The inscription with filigree frame is just gorgeous!
 Big chipboard with hearts I divided into two parts,
to make it more harmoniously fit into the work!

 In this layout I have used next chippies:

I was glad to inspire you today! See you soon, bye-bye!

'Love is a Four Legged Word'
Layout by Hetty Hall

Hi there friends and welcome to the 2Crafty blog, Hetty with you today.

I have been sitting on this gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard sentiment for a while now
 and found the perfect photo to use it with finally.

'Love is a four legged word'

I started this layout by cutting up the 'Fiddle Stick Panel', added copper
 embossing powder and arranged it in a random fashion behind my photo. 

'Fiddle Stick Panel'

The copper embossing powder put a lovely shine on the panel.

After I arranged some 49 and Market flowers around my photo I used some
of the leaves from the 'Foliage Set 4', painted it with some pearl paint, cut it up
and stuck it amongst my flower clusters.
'Foliage Set 4'

Here is another close up of the leaves, they are so gorgeous and special!

Last but not least, I again got my scissors out and trimmed up the sentiment -
 added more pearl paint and placed the first two words above my photo and the
 rest in the bottom right corner of the layout. I think this way the 
whole design ties together.

A few little extra touches like art stones and ink splatter were added and there you have it.

Thanks again for stopping by, hope you like my layout.

Until next time.....
