October Inspiration and a VIDEO By Catherine Giguère

«Love To Pose»

Hello 2 Crafty fans! Today, I have two layouts to share with you. For this first layout, I made a background with lots of textures using modeling paste and doilies. I put 
yellow ink and a little bit of turquoise. Then, I added stamps with black ink on top. 

I covered my chipboards with gesso. I embossed in brown the  
Brenda's Swirl and the Lattice Leaf set.

I love so much these leaves, they add fine details on a layout! 

I added a little bit of yellow ink on my title to match in with my background. 

Here's the video:


2 Crafty products used:

- Love to Pose (title)
- Lattice Leaf set
- Glenda's swirl


To create my background, I used the same techniques as for my first page using a
 different mask, ink of different colors (blue, green and brown). 

I embossed my Moroccan Panel with the same embossing powder from
 Lindy's Stamp Gang (Twilight Bronze Slate). 

I painted the other chipboards with white gesso and then, I applied a little bit of
 brown ink to make them match my background.

2 Crafty Products used:
- Moroccan Panel
- Word 'Love' from the Line Words - Happiness Borders
- Elegant Flourishes

I hope I inspired you! Have a nice crafty day!
