My First Layouts for 2Crafty
PLUS a VIDEO
By Valérie Ouellet


"Smile"

Hi there. 
This is my first layout of for 2Crafty Chipboard. 
I'm so pleased to have the chance to work with such quality chipboards.  
 

I have also made  a STEP BY STEP VIDEO
on my creative process of my layout. Hope you will
take the time to watch it.

I like the clean lines of my layout because the I wanted the chipboard 
to help draw the focus to my photo.
 
 I just painted all the chippies with acrylic paint.
It doesn't get much easier than that !!

 
I love the way the "Handrawn Heart Frame" draws the focus to the photo.
I have also cut & layered some pieces of the "Square Collage Panel"
underneath my pic. I still have plenty left to use on another layout.
 
The "smile" word has been cut out of the middle of one of the Word Circles
love how tiny it is, but still shares the message I wanted to share.

2Crafty Chipboards Used:
  Word Circles Set 1 
 Frame Handrawn Hearts
Square collage panel 



"It's a Dog's Life"

 For my second layout, I colored my chipboard with black ink.
I think it is very dramatic against the white background.


I thought this chippie title, "It's A Dogs Life" was just
perfect for this photo of our dog with my son.


 I like to cut small pieces of my chipboard to add in with my layers.
Here I have again cut some pieces of the "Chicken Wire Panel"  to use
layered in between my papers.

 
  Here you can see I have also used an arrow from the "Assorted Arrows Pack"
These are great, you get loads all in one pack.

2Crafty Chipboards Used:
It's a Dog Life- title
 Assorted Arrows Pack
Chicken Wire panel 
 
 
Until next time
Valerie
