June Inspiration by Ingrid

Hello everyone!
Ingrid here today with two canvas layouts to share with you.
For my first project I used a photo from our vacation to Greece last year.


With this project I started by making the background using a stencil and modeling paste.
Added the paints and toned it down with some gesso.
Used a thread string to make the vertical line.
Also used some felting wool to create some texture.

The dream arrow chippie, almost bare and with a light touch of gesso.

The dandelion chippie got two coats of gesso.

The felting wool gives it a nice dreamy, almost a watercolor look.

Added some beads.

A piece of the Leafy Shrub Set #1.

Some flowers with a center of the felting wool.
All got a final touch with some gesso.

2Crafty Chipboard used:
Arrow Word Set
Leafy Shrub Set 1
Whispy Dandelions

And here is my second project:
Hubby and I are also loving our long walks together and on these walks I love to 
take photos. This one is from an early walk with the fresh dew on all the plants and trees.


I started this project by glueing the elegant flourish and some bubble clumps.
Gessoed the whole canvas and added some modeling paste. 
I made some circles in the wet modeling paste with a small stick.
Once dry, I added all the paints.
Some gesso as an extra touch to let the chipboard stand out more.

The circles made in the wet modeling paste gives a nice background.

The flourish on the background.

A piece of the bubble clump.

The same piece of flourish I used in the background but this one got a coat with gesso.
Under all the chipboards and flowers, I added some felting wool.

The word was painted with some acrylic paint.

Another piece of the bubble clumps, also painted with some gesso.

Made some watered white acrylic paint for the splatters. 
Love how it looked on that felting wool.

June Inspiration by Debbie

Hi everyone!  Debbie here with you today to share my June projects.  


I found the picture on Pinterest and immediately knew I had to use it on a layout.
I did some minimal masking on the background paper and added some paint splatters.  A beautiful picture, lots of flowers and an array of 2Crafty Chipboard! 

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Corner Twisted Vine
Elsa Frame
Ornate Screen
Butterfly Frames
Corner Alexia's
Fine Word Set 2
Lavender Shrub

To the left and right of the photo I placed the Elsa Frame which I cut in half and embossed with antique taupe embossing powder.  I wanted to mimic a garden gate.  I embossed the Corner Alexia's also with antique taupe powder and cut it in half and used at the bottom sides of the photo.  Among the flowers I placed the Corner Twisted Vine, embossed with verdant and antique taupe powders.

At the top of the photo I placed the Ornate Screen, embossed antique taupe, along with the title.
  To the side I placed the Lavender Shrub embossed with verdant powder.

Here you can see more of the Lavander Shrub, along with the Butterfly Frame embossed with plum powder.



My second layout was made for a friend.   Love the background paper and left it as is only adding some of my favorite pieces of 2Crafty Chipboard and lots of flowers.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
6" Revolution Frames
Word Circles Set 1
Angie's Vines
Doily Border

I embossed the title happy with mixture of various blue shades of embossing powder.  Angie's Vines with a mixture of verdant and antique spice powders, and a piece from the Doily Border embossed with Navy powder.

Tucked beneath the flowers is a small Revolution Frame, and pieces from the Doily Border Chipboard.

Love the mixture of color in the Angie's Vine.  I added some micro beads for texture.

I hope I have inspired you.
Thanks for stopping by!

Karine's June Shares

Hi there, 2Crafty fans.

I'm here today to share with two layouts with you that I created using the gorgeous
chipboards from 2Crafty. Let's jump right in with the first one.


For this layout, I went with a bright green. This color feels so happy!

My layout is based on the two pieces of the Modern Swirls that I put together.
They received a coat of dark brown embossing powder.

Around my photo, I used one of the Frame Handdrawn Heart.
I heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

My title piece is part of the Fine Word Set #2. I think this is one of my most favorite
set of all times! I heat embossed the "Precious" word with white embossing powder.

I think this white title piece is perfect against the flowers and embellishments I used here.

2Crafty products used:
Frame Handdrawn Heart
Modern Swirls
Fine Word Set 2

My second layout is featuring a picture of my son.

"This Boy"

I started this layout with the Frame Lucy's Flourish as my main piece.
 I painted it with a patina metallic acrylic paint.

I then decided to add some Film Strips Small, which I embossed
with a dark blue embossing powder.

My title piece, the "This Boy" piece, is painted with a blue metallic acrylic paint.

Here are a few other details shots, for you to see the texture.
