It's time for Chantal Vandenberg's
2Crafty March projects! :)

Hello 2Crafty fans!
 I hope you are all doing well.  Today I have three new projects to share 
with you using a variety of 2Crafty's fabulously versatile chipboard.

First up is a double layout (yes a double!).  I do like to dabble into 
double layouts from time to time - probably not as often as I'd like to.
My layout is called...
 "A Big Surprise"...

I love this sequence of photos that captures the surprise on my daughter's 
face when she received her most wished-for present!  Just priceless. :)

My title uses the Alpha Set 1, which has been sprayed lightly with black mist for some
 depth and interest.  I like how you can still see the speckles of mist over the raw chipboard.

I have used three tiny hearts from the ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars pack.  These super
 cute hearts are great for layering like I've done here on top of my own Fuzzy Hearts,
 (available from my store, ByChantalVandenberg).  I have painted the hearts with red
 acrylic paint and covered them with a red glitter pen.


I have covered one Funky Heart with patterned paper and outlined around the inside
 edges for definition.  I have used the word 'Birthday' from the Happy Birthday Card Pack
 as a mask on the left of my layout (above) using black spray ink,

 I've adhered it here onto the right of my layout (above).

My next layout is a comparative one.  I looks upon my two girls at a certain milestone -
 two different times but the same moment;
" First Day of School"…
Here I've used the title First Day of School and painted it with yellow acrylic paint, followed by a sprinkling of yellow iridescent glitter.  I have doodled around the outsides and coloured in the closed gaps with a black marker, followed by black glitter glue.

I have coloured a pair of glasses from the Glasses Set black and mounted it onto some pretty cardboard packaging.

I have also used a cute 'bitten' apple from the Apples pack.  It has been painted red and covered with red glitter glue.  It has been cut in half and adorns both the left and right sides of the layout.

All other elements are from Jenni Bowlin Studio.

Now for my final layout to share this month; 
"Easter Eggs"…

I've based this layout's palette on the current colour challenge at Kreative Koncepts.  I have used a cute Li'l Chick from the Li'l Chick 3-pack.  This li'l fella has been painted using three acrylic paint colours. Firstly I've painted him white, then once dry I added yellow, orange for the feet and beak, and I mixed some orange and yellow to give some shading on his body.  I outlined his wink and beak, plus added some eyelashes and popped on a little goggle eye for fun factor.

I've also painted a sweet bunny from the Funny Bunnies 2-Pack.  There is a lovely variety of 2Crafty Easter-themed chipboard available. :)

I have used one tag from the Mini Tags collection (under the chick) as well as a Flag Banner flag and a Heart Banner flag from the Heart Banners pack.  On top of these banners I've layered a '2013' from the 2013's set.  This was perfect for my subtitle.

Well I really hope you have enjoyed my layouts for this month and I hope to have 
inspired you to get 2Crafty yourself! :)

Until next month, have a 2Crafty time!
