Stacey's September Inspiration

 Hi guys, well another month has passed and I am back today with three
 new creations to share.  I am sure I always create with lots of colour but
today it's in the way on rainbows, each piece full of different colours :)
Wasn't my intention but that's the way it worked out!

My first creation  I had so much fun creating!
 It is so fun and I used lots of fun chippies too!

Here are the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I have used here:

Corner Evie
Mixed Buttons
Frame Cherish
Frame's Tiny Henri's

Aww, Bambi is just the cutest!  I used a similar technique as I did the last time
 I created with Bambi but this time I added black watercolour pencil to 
really give her dimension.

You can also see tucked in there just above Bambi, a Frame Tiny Henri's
 I painted this with Shimmerz product, Sour Apple Dazzlerz. 

I have layered some Mixed Buttons with foam tape and applied some
 Zazz glitter glue in the colour Squash. 
The Corner Evie was the perfect piece to add to my layers here.  I covered
it with Gesso and then sprayed with Shimmerz when the piece was in place.

I cut the Frame Cherish on the diagonal and placed the Cherish word over my photo
 in amongst my other layers.  I covered my photo and allowed the Shimmerz
 mist to colour the right side of the frame.

I placed the other part to the frame on the left hand side of the photo mat.
 I added some stokes of black and brown watercolour to match with the Bambi.  

My second layout today is my family and I.  It is the worst, out of focus, grainy picture
 from my iphone but I just love it and had to scrap it!!!!   I don't often use black
 on my layouts but seeing as my photo was black and white I thought it would 
work well to add some black ink and washi tape.

"My Happy Place"

 Here are the gorgeous 2 Crafty pieces I used:

My Happy Place
Corner Rachel's
Elegant Hearts
Corner Tiny Edwin

 I have added a Corner Tiny Edwin to the bottom right hand side of my layout. 
 I have coated it with Gesso and then using my finger I applied some Rub 'n' Buff
 in Antique Gold to the edges.

I have scattered some Butterflies around the layout in 2 different sizes.  I have applied
 Gesso to them and when they were dried I added a Prima script stamp with black ink.

A second Corner Tiny Edwin was placed on the photos corner.  I just dabbed
some Gesso on here.  I also placed the Corner Rachel's under the paper layers.
 I then added some Rub 'n' Buff.

I really loved this title, love the font and the way it goes down the page. 
 I applied Gesso to it to make it pop from the background colour. 
 I adhered it onto some of my flowers and leaves to give it dimension.

I have added a Elegant Heart here above some of my mixed media background.
 I painted it with black paint to tie in with the rest of the black elements.
 I added some more stamping (with white paint) to the background and love
 the effect it gave on the heart.

 My last creation today is a commissioned canvas piece.  


I have used some pretty 2Crafty pieces here:

Valentine Branch
Smile Loopy Font
Doily Boarder

After adding Gesso to the Doilies I dribbled and flicked Shimmerz products over the pieces. 

 I cut the Doily Boarder and placed the pieces under some of the layers.  I once 
again applied Gesso to the piece first (I often do this after attaching it to the layout/canvas) 
and then proceed to add some colour with Shimmerz.

I layered the title Smile Loopy Font on top of the flowers.  I added Modelling Paste 
to the word to give it a chunky, texture look.

To the right you will find the bird from the Valentine Branch set. 
 I applied Modelling Paste to him also and then added a little Shimmerz Inklingz
 to give him the mint tone.

 Well that is it from me for another month, I hope I have inspired you to create something
 unique with those beautiful 2 Crafty chipboard pieces.  Have a great day xo
