2 Crafty June Inspiration - Lindy Gillespie

Welcome everyone and what a lovely day it is 
Today I have the pleasure in bringing you some 
inspiration pages with some fabulous 2 Crafty chippies.

Riot of Colour 

                                                             When I first saw the Flamingo chipboard
                                                              knew exactly what photo I'd use, you see
                                             I went to the Singapore Zoo and saw these magnificent birds.

                                                  I gave them a light coat of gesso  then inked them with
                                               Ingvild Bolme ink Sand then edged them with Rusty Keys.
                 2 Crafty  Chippies Used
                                                                          Polaroid Frame
                                                                          Birds in flight
                                                                          Chicken Wire
                                                                          Corner Arches


                                             Some closies  of the Arches which  I first cut  into sections
                                                                and then  inked with Rusty Arch,
                                                 the chicken wire was also inked but this time using
                                                                                     Dry Sand.
 The 2012 and the buttons i just inked in Rusty Keys

Again I used the Rusty Keys ink on the bird.

Home is Where your Heart Is.

                                                            The photo in this layout is our
                                             present house which we've lived in for nearly 20 years,
                                               so needless to say lots of memories here.
                                                                 The Corner Sign Post
                                                   was just perfect match for the design of the page.
                                                              2 Crafty  Products Used
                                                                       Corner Sign post
                                                                       Maggie's Swirl
                                                                       Anthea's  Butterfly
                                                                  Home is where the heart is
                                                                       circle of chipboard

                                On the Conner sign post i just inked with Versa mark Gingerbread,
                                  I gave the word a little different treatment starting with some
                                      Tea Dye distress ink and when dry just brushed over it with
                                                        Versa Mark Jumping Java

                                              I gave the same treatment to the Swirl, the circle
                                                 and the butterfly chippie and stamped with a
                                                                       script stamp.

Busy Doing Absolutely Nothing

Finally I have a layout from earlier on in the month 
I created for the challenge for Paper stories 
with loads of chippies
which I cut up into pieces to use on other projects.

Thanks for stopping by, see you next month.
