August Inspiration - A Layout and a Canvas
By Mary Catt

''Friends Forever''

Hello 2Crafty friends!
I have two projects to share with you, today! Lets start with the first one which is a layout.

I also made a video tutorial on how I made it.

I based this layout on the August challenge over at More than Words Challenge blog and on Prima Marketing PPP August Challenge.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboards...
6" Circle Revolution Frames
Bubble Clumps
Mini Word Set 2
Friendship Mini Word Pack 


 When I found this beautiful photo on Pinterest, I wanted to create a summery and fresh layout. 

The paper I used is from Prima Marketing ''Salvage District'' Collection. To create my background I used Lindy's Stamp Gang mist, several stamps from my stash and the flowers are also Prima Marketing.

I heat embossed the two word titles from the ''Mini Word Set 2'' and the
''Friendship Mini Word Pack'' with 
''Spanish Moss Green'' Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder. The ''Circle Frame'' was treated the same way. 

The ''Bubble Clumps'' were also heat embossed with the ''Desert Moon Turquoise'' Lindy's powder.

''Happy Today''

 The second project is a colourful canvas. 
Here is my video tutorial on how I made this canvas.

 2Crafty Chiboards I used... 
Asst Mini Camera Set
Word Circles Set 1
Film Strips-Small

  I have based my canvas on the August challenge over at Lindy's Stamp Gang Challenge Blog.

 I created my background with mixing light paste with four different magicals and applied them trought a stencil. You can see which colours I used in the video above.

I heat embossed the two ''Word Circles'' with ''Desert Moon Turquoise'' and the ''Film Strip'' with the ''Hydrangea Blue Mauve'' Lindy's embossing powder.

 The chipboards from ''Asst Mini Camera Set'' were also heat embossed with ''Ceranium Coral Blush''.

 Well, that's all from me today... 
Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
