Memories of you
By Marie Claude Rodier

Hi all,

I do love to go for non traditional color themes on a regular basis and this apple picking
layout is no exception. Instead of vibrant fall colors, I chose soft blue, green and white. 

Memories of you

 Memories of you was embossed with Wow Sparkling powder. I love this product so much.
It’s off-white color is beautiful.

Circle Tag Set 1 was dry brushed with gesso and tainted with gold green watercolor.

Frame Madeline’s Flourish was painted with Finnabair’s Northern Lights Blue Texture
Fantasy Paste, cut in two and placed either side of paper clustering.

 Frame Juliet’s was basecoated with gesso and embossed with Lindy’s gold green powder.
It was cut in two and placed either sides of the picture.

Layout by Marie Sabatier

Hello everyone,

I present to you my second inspiration for this month of September.

A still romantic layout!


The 2CraftyChipboards used :

- Perfection
- Frame Oval Ornate
- PA Decorative Rod Set 1
- Lattice Leaf Set

I applied a coat of white gesso to each chipboard.

I used my adorable "Frame Oval Ornate" chipboard 
which I embellished with Lindy's Gang "CafĂ© au Lait" embossing powder 
then I gave a little contrast by adding lightly "Turquoise Satin" wax and "Bronze Age".

This is the star chipboard of my layout I love its super sleek design.

To stay in the same style I chose these chipbards "PA Decorative Rod Set".
They are precious and delicate.

To harmonize with the background of my paper, 
I chose Turquoise embossing powder.

To bring more detail and relief I also added some "Lattice Leaf Set".

The magic of chipboards.

For the title I added nothing, I liked it as it is!

That's it for me, come back every day to discover magnificent creations. 

Thank you for your visit, see you soon!

It's The Quiet Ones... ~ by Lisa-Marie Watling

 Hi there!

If you recall from my last creation, I mentioned that I have created 3 layouts depicting the varying moods or moments of my tween daughter.  Here is No 2!  How appropriate is this title!?

I used these chippie pieces:

The first thing I did with my title was to separate it so that I could use it across the centre of my layout.  I then misted it with metallic gold and while it was still wet, I heat embossed it with some white UTEE.

I have swiped Francesca's Journal Frame with a deep raspberry coloured oxide and then gave it a coat of Glossy Accents.  To alter Cheryl's Floral Frame, I first swiped on some sage coloured oxide, then I gave it a mist of pearlescent beige and then I swiped the edges of the flowers with a pink and plum chalk.  I finished it off with some Glossy Accents.

Until next time!!

"Love in Pink"
A Mixed Media Layout By Di Garling

Hi 2Crafty friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have a little mixed media layout to share with you.

The standout piece of chipboard I have used here is not actually a border 
but a pair of chipboard corners !!

I cut one of them in half & placed it at the top of the layout so it
actually looks like a 12" border chipboard piece.
That is the beauty of chipboard. You can change it up to suit!!

2Crafty Chipboard Used…
Hannah’s Corners
LOVE from Fine Word Set #1
Mini Flourish Bits

After creating this lovely mixed media background I then set to work altering
my chipboard pieces.

All the chipboard pieces were firstly painted in a black acrylic paint
& then followed up with a wipe over of some silver Wax Paste.

I always love to used these "Fine Words" in this way so that they
 pop right off the page with the accent of flowers underneath them.

Here you can see where I have added a piece from the "Mini Flourish Bits"
to the left side of my photo to add balance to the layout.

I am releasing this layout as a KIT.

"Mum's Day"
By Charmane Sharp

 Sometimes its not about a perfect photo,
but the moment you captured that is the reason
you create a layout.

That is why I created with these photos, to remember
Mothers Day and my son taking me to a country nursery
to buy some new plants.

A special memory and I love that he took a selfie of us,
and pulled the garden cart around for me.

2Crafty chipboard used...

Mini Decorative Frame set 8
Adornment set 1
Ornate Chunky Hearts
Alphabet set 1
Angie's Vines

By adding Angie's Vine in my fussy cut flower cluster it creates textural
difference and contrast. By cutting it into two pieces I get two separate elements 
to add in with my flowers. After a coat of Gesso I added some light green
watercolour exposing some Gesso too for a soft finish. 

Using the Heart as the base for my title I coated it with two shades of 
Lilac wax and then made my title with the alphabet pieces. The letters
were coated with wax in a grunge style to show some Gesso through
to coordinate with the vine. The alphabet sets are great to make unique
titles to suit your art.

These mini flourish pieces are a great addition. After rubbing on some wax
 randomly I tucked them in, coming out from my flowers. They are a part
of the Adornment set and the long Flourish piece was cut in two and lined
up under the photos as per the above picture.

I love the addition of the Frame at the top of the door. Some pinky mauve wax
was applied first with some purple around the outside. 

This is a lovely floral layout to reflect our time together at the nursery. I hope
you have been inspired to choose some 2Crafty chipboard for your next layout.

Until next time...

Beautiful Little Girl ~ by Lisa-Marie Watling

 Hello there!

Today I'm sharing the first of 3 layouts I created for 2Crafty this month, which kind of pays
homage to the various stages my (now tween!) daughter has gone through over the years!

I used these chippies on this layout today:

I first coated my title chippie with some linen coloured oxide and then I misted it with
a pearlised mist; I followed that with some Glossy Accents.

The larger of the 3 doily discs was given a few different swipes of blue chalk / oxide to
create an ombre effect and the medium and small discs were swiped with pink oxide.
  All my doilies area coated with Glossy Accents.

These gorgeous leaves were also treated with varying shades of sage green and I drew their
veins with a gold metallic pen.  These too, were coated with Glossy Accents.

Until next time!
