Janice Nicholls - My May Shares

Hello Everyone!
Janice with you today to share  three layouts all embellished with the gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard.
There are so many gorgeous pieces....the hardest part is choosing which ones to use.
Vanessa has just released a few more amazing new pieces. Pop over  here to have a look.

"Dear Mum"

2Crafty products used;
Leafy Shrub Set 3
 Moroccan Panel
Chunky Hearts

May is Mothers Day month.
 I created this layout about my beautiful Mum and journalled her a message.
She loves her garden so I decided to add a big bloom cluster with a Leady Swirl flourish
for her also. I coloured the Leafy Swirl with  some white embossing powder to add
 some dimension to the chippie.
I have used the chipboard as a stencil to created more layers to my page.
I  snipped  away the outside border of the  Moroccan panel  and then cut it into 3 different size pieces and tucked  each piece under the photo.
 I coloured the panel with two different shades of purple acrylic paint.

Hearts are my scrapping trade mark, almost every layout has a heart somewhere 
on the layout, either chipboard, doodled,  stencil etc.
 This big Chunky Heart fits perfectly amongst the cluster and is ideal for adding some
 journaling to. I used white paint to colour the heart, then daubed a sponge lightly 
into purple paint and daubed it over the Heart. I have used pop dots to adhere and to
 add some dimension. Also by adhering with the pop dots its easy to tuck elements
 underneath and around it.  

2Crafty Products used;
Beaded Heart Borders
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars
Mini Family Icons
Word Circles Set 2

I love these Mini Family Icon chippie pieces.
Each one is coloured with  Olive, Gold and Topaz Versa Colour ink.
 I tied a piece of embroidery thread around the girl. 
I snipped the word 'together' from the circle and tucked  the circle pieces
into the cluster. 'together' is coloured with green Bazzinks.

The Beaded Heart Borders are new pieces and are just perfect to use as layers
 on your layouts. Here I have used 2 pieces and layered them together.
Each piece is coloured with Olive, Gold and Topaz  Versa Colour Inks and adhered
 using thread and glue.

 Circle Words and the ATC Tiny Hearts which were coloured with gold Ink and 
places randomly on the layout.


2Crafty  Products used;
Decorative Rod Set 2
Funky Heart Swirls
Doodled Frames
Word Circles Set 1

Loving hearts as I do, I couldn't resist these Funky Heart Swirl chippie pieces.
They come in packs of 4 and each piece is different.
Here I have coloured a pieces  of the Heart Swirl with white paint and a touch of 
pink Ink and tucked it into the flower cluster. All the other chippie pieces were coloured 
with White Paint. You can see the bottom edge of the Doodled Frame, part of the
 Decorative  Rod Set, which is just gorgeous and I have used a word from the
 Circle Word Set 1 as my title for the layout. 

Another close up of the Chippie pieces.
Funky Heart Swirl, Decorative Rod Set and the Word Circle Set 1.
Isn't that Decorative Rod Set piece gorgeous, I love it. 

A little cluster to finish off the layout.
 Here I have added a piece I snipped off the Doodled Frame 
and a piece from the Funky Heart Swirls.

Well thast my shares for the month of May.
I hope you feel inspired to add some of this wonderful chippie to your next creation.
I will be back again in June to share some more.
