November Inspiration
Two Layouts to Share
By Di Garling

"Pure Joy"

 Hi there 2Crafty fans. Today I have two layouts to share with you
featuring my beautiful grandaughter Mia. We took these pics last 
week and I knew they would be perfect for this layout.

2Crafty products used..
Corner Ivy
Olivia's Frames
Pure Joy title 
Addy's Butterflies

I have based this layout on the Prima November BAP sketch challenge.


I rotated & flipped this sketch.

 I started off with this fab new title to the 2Crafty range, "Pure Joy"
and is just what she is to us all.

All of my chippies pieces on this layout for firstly given a coat of
gesso & here on the title I have followed that with some aqua Mica powder.

 The little "Olivia Frames" I gave a coat of white acrylic paint after the gesso
because I wanted them to be really bright white & stand out.


Here you can see the "Corner Ivy" which I cut in half to create a border with instead
of using it as a corner. This is such a beautiful piece, so fine & delicate & again 
 I have again used an aqua Mica Powder to colour it.


 
"Hello Beautiful Girl"
 
For my second layout I have also used another pic of my grandaughter, taken
when she was just three weeks old.
 
2Crafty chipboard used...
Hello Beautiful - title
Lattice Leaves
Corner Arches
Vintage Hot Air Balloons 
 

For my title, I used the "Hello Beautiful" & added a little mini word "GIRL", also from
the 2Crafty range. All my chippie pieces were firstly given a coat of gesso which
 creates a great base upon which you can add just about anything.


On all these pieces I simply used some Prima Chalk Inks to add colour to 
the chippies, then I brushed over a little bit of water to make the ink runny & a
add a bit of a water colour effect as opposed to a solid colour.


I just love those "Lattice Leaves" tucked in to my flower clusters.

  Lastly I cut up the "Corner Arches" and placed them end to end underneath
 the photo & then heat embossed them.  I do love the way you can adapt chipboard that way.
