Well, let me get right to it!! I have a few layouts to share today...
I loaded this one up with 2 Crafty...
Close up of the Graceful Butterfly, which I first misted pink, then added some liquid pearls for a shiny feminine look..here you can also see the flourish I used, Corner Annalise, which I simply painted with acrylic paint then brushed lightly with gesso, and added more liquid pearls to the ends, then tucked into my main flower cluster to pull the eye toward the photo..
Close up of the Captured Moments title, which I misted with a gold mist, then added dabs of gesso. I really love the chipboard titles in the store, so very versatile!
The next two photos show the Doilies...which like the butterfly, I simply misted with glimmer mist, and added some liquid pearls and painted it around with my fingertip until I liked the effect.
OK, on to the next one..this one is a bit less pretty, and a bit more "messy" as I call it...
OK first off, do you see the subtle circle pattern in the background? Yep..you guessed it! That is a piece of 2 Crafty chipboard (Crazy Circles)..It is a 12x12 sheet so what I did was adhere it to my paper, and slathered the whole thing with a thick layer of gesso, completely covering the chippie. So, when it dried, i had a nicely textured, raised circular patterned backdrop for my page. I then doodled with a black pen around some of the circles, did some masking, misting, and painting until I liked the effect. I also used them as places to do some random journaling around.
Close up of a Maggie's Swirl flourish piece, I simply dabbed with a shiny black paint.
One of the little Funky Hearts, painted black again and dabbed with some texture paste, tucked into my cluster..
Well folks, that's all from me!! Thanks for bearing with me through this loooong post!!! I would absolutely love it if you would like to check out my personal blog, where you will find more inspiration from recent projects using 2 Crafty chipboard, such as this...
