September Inspiration By Marianne Johansson

"This Is My Life"

Hello  2Crafty Chipboard fans!

Today I have two layouts to show you.
The two are rather different in style, just as myself, I cannot be the same all the time LOL.

The first one is a simple layout that shows what effect some of the gorgeous
 2Crafty chippies can make on a layout.
I chose a kraft background and a black and white photo of myself, 
playing with my art journals. 
Love this large text chipboard and it was perfect for the photo.

All the chippies are colored with black ink.

I used some teal /mica powder as a contrast, love that color.
The flair button says " just now".

Here you see some of the stamping on the background.

I tried to write with black acrylic paint. Wasn't too happy how it turned out,
 but never mind, it's my own handwriting.

2Crafty Chipboard used:
Sequins Negative Bits
This is my life-title
Mini Sampler set
Fencing wire panel


The next layout shows myself and our two daughters on our trip to London earlier this year.
Here we are in St. James Park, the park is located near Buckingham Palace.

On this layout I used some of the awesome word chippies from Mini Word set 2 and 
Mini Travel Word Set 1. Absolutely love those word-chippies. They can be 
used on layouts like mine or on cards, as the size isn't too big.

As usual my background is filled with mediums, ink, paint, stencils and stamps.

I colored the chippies with ink in different colors, to match my background.

Lots going on on the background as you can see.

The Leafy Shrub Set was a perfect match for the photo as we were in a lovely park. 
I used two of the chippies from that set.

Had to add some flowers on this one and used some Gesso to tone the colors down a bit.

Hope you liked my projects and got some inspiration.
Until next time,
