Beauty - layout and bonus video by Emma.


Hi 2Crafty friends, 

Today I’m sharing a layout that was inspired by my friend Kelsey's watercolour portrait 
she had painted of an image she had found 😜 
She inspires me and is creating some cool art.

I really loved it and felt inspired to create with it. 
I used some cool chipboard for it and really felt I wanted to play with a circle theme. 


So these are the pieces I chose.....

I also chose to use a colour tone that isn’t my go to but wanted to try something different for me.  Again I drew inspo from the image and this time her lips. So I chose a lindys starburst spray in magnolia magenta gold. 

And so for a couple of the bubble clumps I purely just painted them, and painted them in a colour tone to fit my page and compliment the base colour, I used a Dylusions acrylic in pomegranate seed. 


And for the other bubble clumps and the dotty bits I coated in an oxide ink but this time a muted tone using iced spruce. 


The gorgeous hibiscus flowers I embossed with a chunky white emboss powder, I really wanted them to not be ‘perfect’, so this is why I chose the chunky emboss, as it heats up it seperates and you can see through it. 


And finally for my title piece I again simply embossed with a novo powder. I love this black shimmer it really makes the title stand out. 

I really hope this has inspired you in some way. I have a little video for this one too, I would love you to check out and hopefully inspire just a little more. 





I’ll catch you all next month. 
Em. Xx

Cherish by Sabrina Turpin

Hello Chipboard Fans!

It is time for me to reveal my layout for June, and I've got a spicy and spiky one for you guys this time around! I found these amazing cactus chipboards which reminded me of hot, sandy dunes and I knew exactly which picture they would fit perfectly with. Thus, I present you my "Cherish" layout, featuring my son and daughter standing hand-in-hand at the beach, feet in the sand, marveling at the infinite ocean in front of them.



For the "Mini Hexagon Clump", I used red pigment ink, applied as a paint. For the "Frame Jenna", I first inked it with a red ink, then applied a gold embossing ink.



I simply painted the "Cherish Loopy Font" title with a black matte paint. 



Finally, for the awesome "Cactus Set", I applied some yellow and lime metallic paste paints and drew some additional details with green, yellow and brown dye ink pencils. Then I inked the border with black ink.

I worked with the following chipboards:
Mini Hexagon Clump MB015
Cactus Set M00733
Frame Jenna FR0079
Cherish Loopy Font W00074


I completed this layout as a guest designer for the case file #256 CSI: Color,Stories, Inspiration because 2Crafty is a sponsor this month.

I hope this layout gave you a few ideas for your own creations! I'll be back soon with more inspirations.

Handsome Little Man Layout by Bec Genet

Hi everyone. Today I have my second 2Crafty layout for June to share with you.
Now that I have a boy to scrap I'm trying to do more masculine layouts, although I still add a lot of flowers lol. So here is my take on a "boy" page.


The 2Crafty Chipboard I used was:
Handsome Little Man Title
Messy Squares
Steampunk Gears Small
Steampunk Gears Medium
Sequin Negative Bits




I started my background by using Silver and White pastes through a couple of different stencils, then adding some black stamping
I used the 2 largest sized Messy Squares, the larger one I coloured with Prima Acrylic Sparks Paint in Mermaid Sparkle and the medium size in Prima Acrylic Metallic Paint Sliver Spoon. I placed these under my photo


I used 2 pieces from the Sequin Negative Bits and coloured them with Prima Acrylic Sparks paint in Unicorn's Hair. I also used the Prima paints in Sliver Spoon and Steampunk Copper to colour the Small and Medium Steampunk Gears. 


On the Handsome Little Man title I used white embossing powder.
I finshed of my layout by embellishing with flowers and leaves. 



Thanks for visiting

'Fun in the Sun' Boy Scrapbook Page
By Kripa

Its been two wet, cold weeks in Sydney.
That probably explains why I chose to make a layout using the sun.

The layout concept was inspired by 2crafty chipboard pieces:
Dancing Suns and the title chipboard Fun in the Sun.

"Fun In the Sun"

All the chipboard pieces were first coated with a layer of white gesso. Once dry, I applied Colourarte Silks using a palette knife on the Polaroid Frames & Dancing Sun. Let the paint dry for a minute then drag the paint again using the palette knife. This left some beautiful texture and just enough grunge. Dry brush a very tiny amount of white to tone down the shiny paint.


For the title piece, I wanted the word 'Sun' to stand out. So it was coloured using an orange ink pad. The word 'Fun' was painted on with Colourarte Silks & outlined with a white Posco pen.



2crafty chipboard used:

* Dancing Suns
* Title: Fun in the Sun
* Polaroid Assorted frames

Thank you for stopping by today.
Happy creating,
Kripa

June Inspiration with Elena Martynova

Hello my dear friends!!
Today my layout was made for the CSI case file #255 which 2Crafty chipboard
is sponsoring this month. Check out the CSI challenge HERE

 I like to make projects with several photos, you can play with their
location and make the composition more lively and dynamic!


I used some different colours of sprays Lindy's to colour the background paper and also
 added some texture with a stencil and texture paste and did a little stamping as well.


All the chippies were painted with gesso first and then I  used a spray.
 You can see the list of chippboard I used at the end of the post.
  I really love how they look on my composition.
