New Month, New Inspiration with Stacey Young

  Hope you are having a lovely week, we are in full swing with school holidays here, 
enjoying our time together!!  Today I have 3 layouts to share with you using some
 of my favourite pieces of
 2 Crafty chipboard. 

My first layout today is something a little beachy and full of pretty pastels.
"Our Happy Place"

2Crafty chipboard pieces I used:
Small Crazy Circle Panel
Happy loopy font
Frame Lucy's Flourish

I used the Happy Loopy Font as part of my title, I just adore all of the loopy fonts.
  I applied some Gesso to it first (as I do with most pieces) and then I added some
 new Shimmerz Inklingz products to it.  Inklingz are solid watercolours, I have just
 blended a few colours into each other.  Love the effect here on the title word. 

I adhered the Frame Lucy's Flourish around the subject in my photo.  I layered some
flowers around it and applied the Shimmerz Inklingz in Giddy about Green to the
 tips of the flourishes and around the circle section.

I cut the Small Crazy Circle Panel  into several pieces and added them to the layers
around the page.  I have applied Inklingz to these also in Blue My Mind and
Giddy About Green.

My second layout today is one of my boys and I on Easter Sunday.  I drew bunny faces
 on us and my middle son insisted he did his own....too funny!! 

  2 Crafty chipboard used on this layout:
Formal Flourish 1
Frame Ingrid's
Mixed Buttons
Frame Vintage Oval
Vintage Keys 
I have layered the Vintage Key on top of the straw.  I applied Gesso to it and then rubbed
 the outline with a gold ink pad.  I placed the cabochon flower in the centre and the
vellum hearts along it.

I added some Shimmerz Dimensionz in the colour Pearly Gates.  The puffy paint gave
 the delicate frames instant dimension.  I used this on all 3 frames, Formal Flourish 1,
 Frames Ingrid and Frame Vintage Oval.   

I then sprayed random sections of the frames with some Shimmerz Vibez (covering my photo). 

I cut the Frame Vintage Oval in half before layering it to the left of the layout
with some flowers.
I placed a few buttons on the layout and coated them in Gesso before
 rubbing the gold  ink over them also. 

My last creation to share today is one I created for my Shimmerz DT.
 This is a super fun and colourful one of my baby and I.


2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
Frame's Tiny Henri's
Frame Olivia
Word Bubbles (fun)
I have layered a Frame's Tiny Henri's in with my embellishments and covered it
 in Gesso to stand out from the coloured background.

These Word Bubbles are so much 'Fun':)  I covered it in
American Crafts Wow Chunky Gold Glitter.

This Feather would have to be one of my favourite pieces from 2 Crafty.  I have added
 some Shimmerz to it and dipped it in the gold glitter.  I have run some Rub'n'buff along
the feather as well as the Frame Olivia which you will find under the photo. 

That is all from me today, until next month, thankyou for visiting!!
