November Inspiration by Lindy Gillespie

Hello 2 Crafty friends, thanks for calling by the blog.
Today I have three layouts to share with you
with lots of 2 Crafty chipboard featured on them.
Avery Vine 
Round Ornate Frame
Summer Leaf
Mini Ruler
Sweet (friendship mini word pack)
On the "Avery Vine", I simply cut it  in half and used it on both sides
as layers.  Just sealed it first with gesso then dabbed it with a little 
brown versa mark ink.
 On the "Summer Leaf" I did the same treatment as above to tone in with 
the softness of the layout.

I have used the  "Round Ornate Frame" as a layer underneath my photo as well
 I have also used a "Ruler" under the layers too. Both were inked in Dark Brown Ink.
                                                  "A Moment Captured"
                                                         On this layout I went with  white and grey
                                                           so the treatment is again  quite simple to
                                                                     just blend in with the design.
                                                                          A moment Captured
                                                                               Summer Leaf
                                                                                Heidi's Vine
                                                                              Key Set Mini 
                                                                         Tiny Victorian Frame
                                                                           Atc Bracket Frames
                                                    In this photo you can see the title
                                                         "A Moment Captured"
                                                    which I sealed once again with gesso
                                                         and inked the edges with black.
                                                       On the "Victorian Frame"
under the title I stamped it with a script 
stamp in black ink.
                                                       You can see the " Bracket Frame"
                                                               and the "Heidi Frame".
                                                             After I primed the chippies I
                                                    then simply dabbed them with a little black ink
                                               I also did the same treatment on the " key".
                                                     In October 2 Crafty were the sponsors
                                                                     for the challenge blog
                                                                Scrap Around The World.
This was layout I did for the challenge & you
                                                 see  I used lots of 2 Crafty chippies on my layout.
                                                                 Tahnya's Border
                                                                  Parisian Border
                                                     I first painted them with white distress paint
                                                            then painted a little  Shimmerz
                                                                        in Ballet Pink.
                                                        On the circle I just left it natural.
I hope I have inspired you to use some fabulous
2 Crafty chipboard on your next layout too.
