"My Everything"
Layout By Di Garling

Hi there paper friends. Di Garling back with you today with
another layout to share, & naturally I have used some beautiful 
2Crafty Chipboard pieces on it.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
"My Everything" word title
Corner Elegant Set
Mini Flourish Bits 

2Crafty has so many amazing titles to suit all kinds of layouts
& I thought this one, "My Everything", was perfect for my creation today.

I have treated all the chipboard pieces on this layout in exactly the same way.

  First I primed all the chippies with gesso followed by a coat of bronze metallic paint.

It doesn't get much simpler than that. It doesn't have to be complicated to work.

All my papers & laces & trims are from The Vintage Chicks Club.

Flowers from 49and Market.

Well thats all I have for you today.

Until next time...

"A Glimpse of You"
by Tammy Klingner

Hello there creative souls
Tammy back again to share my latest 2Crafty Chipboard Creation titled:

"A Glimpse of You"

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
"A Glimpse of You title"
"Mini Branches"
"Fine Snowflakes"
"Assorted Polaroid Frames"

I began by coating some of the "Assorted Polaroid Frames" in 
white gesso and then added white acrylic paint.

I added these to the background of the layout.

I swiped some Metallique Wax over the "Mini Branches" and added
 these to the cluster.
I love the effect of the wax....and it smells so good!

For the "A Glimpse of You title", I added Distress Oxide and a touch
 of white gesso to give it a more pastel shade of green.
I love that I can add these titles over my photos.
The font is gorgeous!! Fine, yet detailed.

To finish off my cluster, I cut some of the sprigs from the
 "Fine Snowflakes"  and coated them in a brown ink.
I then poked them throughout the cluster.
This just finishes off the layout.

I'll be back again next month with another chippy packed share!
Until then you can find me on my BLOG.

#Blessed - with Emma

Hi 2Crafty friends, Emma here today sharing a layout with Autumn tones.
I thought this a relevant colour scheme as here in Aussie land we have just started
 our autumn season, which I must admit I love.

Here is my layout and the Chipboard pieces I used.....

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Corner Retro
Mini #Word Set
Fine Stem Frames
Fern Leaf Set
Leafy Silhouettes

The frame I tried a few different finishes to get the final look.
First I coated it in 2 different oxides, then clear embossed it and then finally 
went over the dry emboss with ink and oxide again to get the desired rustic old look.

The Leafy Silhouettes and Retro corner I applied a rust paste and then dabbed over them with Dylusion inks to compliment the colours in the layout. Finally on these I added a clear emboss, deliberately missing sections to add a contrast from glossy to matte.

I really like this distressed look.

I liked it so much I did the same thing with the Fern leaves.
 They look so striking against the paper elements.

With the title I decided to emboss an orange powder over a black ink. This contrasted again from the other chipboard as well as complimenting the photo. Standing out on its own. Again not opting for the perfect finish but just letting the powder adhere where it needed.

I love scrapping imperfectly as this is what I am, and, if I tried to make every art piece perfect I would never finish a project. Don't get me wrong, I can be quite the perfectionist when I need but I really like the look of something finished but imperfect just as much. I feel it adds personality, a touch of me. #imadethis

I hope you enjoy and are just a little inspired by my layout.
I look forward to seeing you all again next month.

Till then, Em xx

"You are Awesome"
By Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty fans!

Winter is finally over in the northern hemisphere and snow is slowly starting to melt here in Qu├ębec! This means we'll soon be putting our tuque away, enjoy warmer weather, longer days and the return of the color green after many months of endless whiteness outside!

This inspired me to prepare the layout I am revealing today,
using a touch of green to accentuate my monochrome winter layout. 

"You Are Awesome"

On the "Robots" chipboards, I used silver embossing powder, used a
 green embossing ink on top and traced the contour with black ink.

For the "Star Bubble set", I applied a green paint.

This is another view of the "Star Bubble set".

I used black embossing ink on the title, "You Are awesome",
 then applied green embossing ink on top.

The following 2Crafty chipboards were used in this layout:
You are awesome [W00528]
Robots [M00232]
Stars bubbles set [M00666]

I've prepared a short video to show how I assembled the layout:


That's all for today! I hope you enjoyed this layout and it gave you some inspiration
 for your own creations! See you in two weeks with more ideas.

This Boy
by Marie Claude Rodier

Hi there,

Marie Claude here today to show you my latest 2Crafty Chipboard layout.

I started by randomly applying a light coat of mint wax over the Moroccan panel.
Once dried, I played with two tones of green Gelatos to create a verdigris look
 and then added a vintage gold coat of wax on top of it to replicate an antique finish.

I used a green-gold embossing powder over the title.

I dry brushed white gesso over the viney circle frame and a
few touches of white gold wax here and there.

I painted the lock green using Gelatos and highlighted it with gold wax and white gesso.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Frame Viney Circles
This Boy
Keyholes and Locks
Moroccan Panel
