"Beauty" by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty friends!

Today I'm back with a new layout to share. It features my daughter as she's sitting on a wooden fence, patiently waiting for her turn on a rollercoaster ride in an amusement park. I had just the right paper to match the picture and some amazing chipboards to make it stand out. 

For the "Lattice Leaves", I've used blue-gold shimmering acrylic paint. On the "Heidi's Vines"
  I applied a transparent shimmering glaze and some diluted charcoal metallic paint on top.

On the negative "Pointed Doily Frames" (behind the "Moments magiques" words), I 
embossed with white enamel powder and stamped with black ink. I applied a silver 
wax on the "Pointed Doily Frames" and subsequently inked with violet ink.

For the title, the "Fine Word Set 2", I've applied a teal ink and 
then used a white embossing ink for the contours.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in my layout:

I hope this layout, style or colors gave you some ideas for your own creations! 
I wish you the best and I'll be back soon with more creative ideas!

"#Believe" a layout by Bec Genet

Hi everyone,
 Today is my day I share my second layout for July made with the gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Doily Frames
Mini # Word Set 1
Palm Leaves Set
Sammi's Swirls

On this layout I coloured most of the chipboard pieces with embossing powder. I love using embossing powder to alter chipboard but I don't do it as much as I used to because I can only scrap when my son is asleep and the heat gun is to noisy to use :)
I used a white embossing powder on the Doily Frames and a very pale beige embossing powder on the Sammi's Swirls.

For the title from the Mini # Word Set 1, I found a deep blue glitter embossing powder which matched my photo perfectly. By the time I got to the Palm Leaves my little one was sleep so I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Neptune to colour them instead.

I placed the smaller Doily Frame to the left of my photo then I cut the larger Doily Frame in half and placed one piece above and one below the photo. I added the Sammi's Swirl pieces on either side of the photo and finally I placed the Palm leaves tucked under the flowers. 

Thanks for Visiting

July Inspiration : Art Journal PLUS Video tutorial
By Kripa Koushik

'What if I fail? But, Oh Darling, What if you Fly?'

Hello friends,

My second project for this month is an art journal page...

To begin, one piece each from the sets  
12" Clock face frames 
6" Clock face frames 
 Cog Nested frames 
was glued down and covered with black gesso. All the violet colored chipboard 
pieces were first coated with black gesso. All the rest were covered with white gesso.

I layered the chipboard pieces over and under tags cut out of pattern paper. To add dimension,
 I've popped the flower doilies on top of the chipboard circles that are the negative
 from the clock face sets.

I hope you enjoy the video tutorial...


Thank you for visiting us today.

"Night City" Layout
by Elena

Hello! Elena with you today!

 It's great if life is full of adventures and travel. A week ago my husband and I returned from 
a trip to Belarus. It's a small country in Eastern Europe (if you don't know:))).
 We drove through small villages and were impressed with how simple the locals live.
 Their life is calm and measured in contrast to the inhabitants of large cities.
 That's where the time rushes, life is boiling and everyone is in a hurry to live!
I like big cities, nd one of the cities where I dream to visit is Sydney!
So I decided to visualize my dream  and made a page with a photo of Sydney at night.
"Enjoy the Journey"

 I used a piece of Ecopaper paper as the background. I chose it first of all for the black
 background, which was perfect for the photo. I also liked the fact that it has a dial -
 as a symbol of the transience of time.

I love the 2Crafty title chippies. They are large and with a very beautiful font!

 As usual, the main decorations of my works are chippies by 2 Crafty. This chip in the form
 of globe - just gorgeous. I covered it with Lindy's dark blue powder. In the tutorial,
which I have prepared for you, you can see all the nuances of creating my page.

 The new chips Steampunk Strips fit perfectly to the theme of
the work and added dynamics and expression.

Hope you got some ideas for your future use of 2 Crafty chipboards & I 
 hope you enjoy the selection of chipboard that I have chosen for my layout. 

Thank you very much for your visiting today! 
See you !

July inspiration 'Capture' by Hetty Hall

Hi there 2Crafty fans and welcome to my second share for July. 

 2Crafty Chipboard products used:

 I layered the 'Cassie's Flourishes' and the 'Decorative Rods' behind my photo to create texture and embossed it with Nuvo shimmering pearl embossing powder. I also ended up cutting out the middle bit of the decorative rod as it was covered by the photo and I don't like 'wasting' my beautiful chipboard. So now as you can see it is in a more prominent place.

The 'Square Collage Panel' was cut into several pieces and layered amongst the flowers for visual effect and embossed with Nuvo Glacier White embossing powder.

I used the negative from the '6" Circle Revolution set' which was left over from another project and layered it behind my photo to serve as a frame. It was again embossed with the Nuvo Glacier White embossing powder.

Last but not least I added some Zing Cranberry Metallic finish embossing powder to my chipboard sentiment from 'Mini Word Set 1'.

Flowers and paper are from 49 and Market and the little finishing touches are the Nuvo crystal drops.

Hope you enjoyed my layout and I was able to inspire you to get some beautiful 2Crafty Chipboard and get your craft on.

Until next time......

"Sweet" Layout
By Bec Genet

Hi all, today I have my first layout for July to share with you
  made with the gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard.


2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Anika's Floral Frame
Scroll Set 3
Skeleton Trees
Word Circle Set 1

I started by coating all my chipboard pieces with white gesso. 
I used the Prima Pastel Dreams watercolour set to add colour to the 
Anika's Floral Frame,  the Scroll Set 3 and the Word Circle Set 1 pieces.
 I used the pastel teal, peach and yellow watercolours, and I also used these 
colours on my background paper.

On the Skeleton Trees I decided to use a darker colour to add a deeper dimension 
to the layout, I used the Prima acrylic paint in steampunk copper. 

I paired the beautiful chipboard pieces with lots of flowers, lace, metal
 embellishments and die cut leaves to complete the layout.

Thanks for visiting

July Inspiration "My happy place" by Marie Sabatier

This is my second page for this month of July.

I have created a very soft and gentle theme.

A photo taken in nature that goes well with the choice of chipboard.

To create interest on the bottom of my page I applied a drawing with a stencil and embossing paste that I covered with embossing powder to give more texture and shine.

For the chipboard flower I just covered it with a metallic bright color Mintgreen paint

For the title and the frame I painted and applied a wax

For the cage I applied an embossing powder

Finally, I added embellishments ....

The chips used : 

- Avery Frame
- Pretty Birdcage
- Beaded Hanging Hearts
- Handdrawn Flowers
- My happy place

That's my inspiration for this month of July 

So much fun to create !!!
