Skateboarding Downtown
By Lisa Oxley

Hello Folks.
This is my final Guest DT for 2Crafty .

I have really enjoyed being a part of such amazing team of inspirational talent .
For my final blog entry I would love to share a couple of layouts that
 showcase my all time favorite 2Crafty pieces.

I belong to a skateboarding family ,1 husband (40 yrs skateboarding everything),
2 teenage  daughters (5 yrs skateboarding) and I love finding pieces that
 actually showcase skateboarding that our family can relate to.

For this layout I have used the following 2 Crafty products..

and the

 I always give my chipboard a quick coat of white gesso spray.
I have left the "fencing wire"  white.
To the "Skate Ramp" I have added some black ink edging, & made it a little grungy.

 My family are fun , life is fun , I hope you can see that in my work .

I painted the word "Skateboarding" with a red paint and
 embossed it with red embossing powder.

I cut the "Skate Dude" from the ramp  ,dusted him with black stazon ink  
& had a little fun with the general design of this piece.

This is my last piece for 2Crafty and this is my all time favorite piece of chippy ever.

Big thanks to Di not only for the inspiration she is ,but for the way she can
get me motivated to get my blogpost up on time.
Heartfelt Thanks to Vanessa , for her wonderful generosity and ability
 to create any chipboard piece I could ever ask for .

Keep it colourful x
