August Post : Days of Summer by Annie Carignan

Hello everyone!!!
 I am honored and excited to present to you my first blog post
 as a Design Team member for the 2Crafty team.   I hope you will enjoy my
 three projects for this month, as much as I had fun creating them.


2Crafty Products used :

Word Circles Set 2 (m00528)
Butterfly frames (m00044)
Happy loopy font (wordhappyloo)
Circle revolution frames (12075)
Flourish adornment Set 4 (pa0025)

I first painted all the chippies with Gesso, then I used different Gelato
colours mixed with a little bit of water.  
The title was coated with Gel Medium.

So simple but so very effective.

Here is the second layout, I was very inspired by the colours to create this layout.

"100% Boy"

2Crafty Products used :
Chicken barbed wire medium (m00481)
Polaroid assortment frames (m00501)
100% boy (word100boy)

For this layout, after firstly priming the various chippie pieces
I again simple coloured them with Gelatos.
Gelatos work so well on chipboard.



My third creation is an 8x8 canvas. 
 I knew exactly what chippies I wanted to use before I started.
I firstly painted all  the chippies with Gesso as before and added Gelatos.
 When dry I then applied some Stickles on the flowers and leaves
for a bit of sparkle
2Crafty Products used :
Gigi's flowers (m00319)
Groovy flowers (m00432)
Skeleton leaves (m00357)

I hope you have enjoyed my post & perhaps feel inspired to get
some great 2 Crafty chipboard for your next project too.

Until next month

Fantastic first post Annie, welcome to the team, loved your projects, my fav was the boy page, but I'm drawn to them, as only 1 son and 5 nephews - no girls in our family.
