January Inspiration By Marianne Johansson

"Enjoy Today"

Hi and happy New Year to you all!

Before we start...
Please remember to become a blog follower & leave a blog comment to
be eligible to go in our monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.
My first post this year is with two layouts, still using photos from our trip to London.
Took a lot of photos so there is plenty to play with.
Here is our two girls with lots of bags after a long day with shopping. 
(don't know who were the most exhausted, they or us LOL)

Found the perfect title for this one.
In fact, 2Crafty Chipboards has titles for every occasion so it's not hard to find something suitable.

Loved this large chippie and placed it partly under the photo in layers.

These small words from the different sets are awesome as "embellishments".

My chippies this time are coloured with an ink pad and some splashes
 with gesso and white watercolor.

Stamps and stencils on the background (as usual from me) making a fun background.

2Crafty chipboards used:
Art Deco Border
Word circle set2
Cartia's swirl
Enjoy Today mini title



"Fun Times"

On this layout I have used a photo from one of the many underground escalators.
 Wow the were steep sometimes.

My chippies this time is colored with black ink pad, to match the background paper

The "bricks" are just awesome and so easy to use when you cut them in pieces

I really love the sheets with words and I use them a lot

Here I also used an arrow from the arrow set.

Brick panel in layers - really cool!

Background is filled with mist and stencils to give some extra dimension

2Crafty chipbaords used:
Fun times title
Brick panel
assorted arrows
word disc travel



Hope you liked my layouts and got some inspiration to play with the gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard.
