October Share With Beck Beattie

"Live Your Adventure"

Hi, it's Beck Beattie here with my October inspiration shares
I'm away in the US at the moment, but really excited to share with you my latest creations!  
I really had fun using the my photo as inspiration for the chipboard I used and how I applied colour.

I enjoyed leaving the pieces a little natural to work in with the background and so
 I didn't alter the circle frame at all.

For the 'Happy Birthday' title I coloured with blue colour spray - this was such a quick 
way to add the colour to the piece of chipboard!

I applied some brown distress ink to the edges of the triangles to give them 
more depth and interest as well as working in better with the background.

   2Crafty Chipboards Used:
  Loads of Triangles
Happy Birthday Card pack
6inch Circle Revolution frames

For my second layout, I once again had fun with the chipboard, this time creating layers 
for added depth.  I love how the chipboard pieces create a beautiful feature to this page.

Altering chipboard really helps to create dimension and interest as in this page, 
as they all build on the colours in the photo and the background.

The "cherish" word was simply inked with black ink for a striking contrast.

Applying a coat of the Indigoblu Flitter glue and mega flack really transforms the pieces 
of chipboard for a completely different look.

Tucked in the foliage looks so beautiful and adds more interest to the page.

The 'cherish' word creates a beautiful contrast to the page helping it to stand out.

Layering up the pieces really takes focus to the photo.  

2Crafty Chipboards Used:
 6 inch Crcle Revolution frames
Beaded Heart borders
5" Floral frame
Leafy Twig branches



I hope you enjoyed my share this month on the 2Crafty blog!

Happy Crafting
