April Shares by Janice Nicholls

Hello  Everyone!
 Welcome to the 2Crafty blog.

Today I am sharing  this  layout I created using photo's
  from Sarah and Callum's engagement photo shoot, 
taken by the talented Jade Norwood.
....And check out the gorgeous 2Crafty chippie pieces.

"thursday april 24"

2Crafty Chipboard :
"Elegant Heart"
"Mini Word Set - Months of the Year"
"Mini Word Set - Days of the week"

New chippie pieces and they are just gorgeous.
Thank you Vanessa, I love  the script writing.
thursday and april are words from the Mini Word Sets.
 Just perfect to add as a title or part of your journaling.
The words are simply coloured with gold ink.
The 24 was snipped from a date and inked gold.

Another gorgeous piece is this Elegant Heart.
Again simply coloured with gold ink and adhere with glue and thread.

2014- inked in gold
Dates are such an important part of scrapbooking and these 2Crafty dates
 are  wonderful. Each pack contains 12 different pieces.

"Such an Amazing Day"

2Crafty Chipboard:
"Such an Amazing Day"
"Folk Hearts"
"Chunky Hearts"

The first of 3 clusters.
Each one contains chippie Gears and Hearts and some thread.
The Gears are coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Inks- Antique Linen, Walnut Stain
 and Vintage Photo. Some Versa Colour Lagoon Blue ink has also been daubed
randomly on each piece.
The Chunky Heart is coloured with the Lagoon Blue Ink.

Cluster No.2
Layered chippie Gears and Heart, with some thread.
 Coloured the same as above

 A close up of Cluster No.3

A close up of  the cluster, chippie 2014 date and part of the title.

2 Crafty have the most amazing selection of Words and Wordlets. 
I snipped this one apart and added it as a title to my layout.
I inked  this with Lagoon Blue ink and  I used a Kaisercraft stamp inked with 
Pinecone ink and daubed it randomly over the words.

My last share for this month is a layout I created  as a Guest Designer using 
this fabulous Mood board at SATW

The Inspirational Board

And my layout.

"escape to the sea"

2Crafty Chipboard:
"ATC Seagulls"
"Asstd Polaroid Frames"
"Chunky Heart"
"Lavender Shrub"
"Leafy Shrub Set 1"
 "Fencing Wire Panel"
"Line Word- Summer Borders- sea"

Just love these gorgeous little words from the Mimi Word- Set 1- escape
Simply left Raw.
I have used an Asstd Polaroid Frame and layered it on top of the photo.
 I coloured it with white paint and edged it with cyan ink.

Chippie looks fabulous layered.
 Here I have used the Lavender Shrub, Leafy Shrub-Set 3, a piece of
 Fencing Wire Panel and an ATC Seagull.

Here is a little ATC Seagull. Each seagull is coated with a thickish layer of gesso, the wing tips are inked grey and I used a black pen to mark the eyes. These are perfect for your seaside pages.
The line Border word was inked and smeared with gesso to give a white washed  look.

 A big Chunky Heart, coloured with ink, then distressed with some gesso, a tiny ATC seagull
and a piece of fencing wire panel, simply painted white are all part of this cluster.

Thank you so much for stopping by.
I hope you feel inspired and start adding some of this gorgeous product to your layouts.

Till next time
Janice xx
