June Projects
By Priscilla Lim

Hello 2Crafty fans,
Ready for more inspirations today? :)
  But before we start....
Please remember while you are here  to become a blog follower & leave a blog comment to
be eligible to go in our monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.
In this post, I will be sharing 2 layouts of different themes.
Here's the first layout based on a photo we took recently on our outing to Universal Studio Singapore.

On this layout, I wanted to have some clean space and also focus on layering the 
chipboards and flowers which I have fussy cut from a Bo Bunny pattern paper.
Here are some close up photos for more details. 
Note that I have lightly applied a layer of gold metallic paint to all the chipboards.

I have popped up the photo with some 3D glue dots and layered the title 
"Happiness is This" on top of the photo to make it really pop :)
In this photo, you get a glimpse of how I have layered the fussy cut flowers as well.

Here is another example of how I raised up the title chipboard with 3D glue dots which 
adds to the attraction and definitely looks much better than lying flat on the paper. 
It gives the whole layout a  dimensional feel too.

In this last photo, I would like to zoom down to the worn look of the border chipboard. 
This is easily achieved as I have only lightly applied the gold paint and still allow some
 parts of the original chipboard to come through.
To finish off the layout, I have added on some speckles of gold and white paint around 
the page. Hope you like what  have share today and these are the 2Crafty chipboards used:

For the second layout, I'm turning the spotlight to my boy.
Lots of Tim Holtz distress inks and stencils were used on this page.
Scroll on to check out the close up photos and write up on how I have altered the chipboards.
On this title chipboard, I have actually gave it a layer of white gesso, followed by dabbing
 Tim Holtz distress ink in broken china and ripe persimmon. Topping it up with a last
 layer of black gesso.
On the Harlequin clumps, to get the rusty look, I have dab with distress ink peeled paint,
 and aged mahagony and added on some white speckles.
On these chipboards, I have dabbed them all with distress ink directly to the raw chipboard.
  • On the flourishes, they were very lightly dab with distress ink in black soot so that part of the original chipboard still shows.
  • On the interlocking grid panel and arrows, they were dabbed generously with distress ink in ripe persimmon. I allow the ink to soak into the chipboard. Another reason why I have directly inked on the raw chipboard is to allow the ink to appear in a darker shade.
  • The circle frame was actually from a left over chipboard that was holding the original piece. I dabbed it with distress ink in broken china, add some white speckles and to complete the look, I gently rub on some black gesso with my finger :)
  • As for the star chipboards, I have inked them with distress ink in weathered wood, add on some white speckles, and dab on the left over black gesso from my finger.
