August Inspirations plus a VIDEO Tutorial
by Catherine Giguère


 Hello 2 Crafty fans!

 Catherine here with you today to share two new layouts and a VIDEO TUTORIAL.. 


For this layout, I first made a textured background with doilies and stamps. I added heavy gesso
 on my collage to add even more texture. Then, I put drops of blue, gray and green inks on my
 doilies and I stamped with black Archival ink to add contrast. 

I glued some Prima Art Stones to add texture again!

I embossed the 'Lattice Leaves' with black powder to add more contrast.

I left my other chipboards ('today' title and the 'Leafy Shrub Set 4') natural.

2 Crafty products used:
- Leafy Shrub Set 4
- Lattice Leaves
- Today - Loopy Font


Again, for this layout, I first made a textured background with modeling paste, doilies 
and stamps. I put drops of coral and peachy inks on my doilies and I  stamped with 
brown Archival ink to add contrast. 

I embossed the 'Elsa Frame' with white embossing powder to make it stand out.
 I love this chipboard!

I glued Prima Art Stones and Coral Prills with Matte Medium Gel to add texture.

I embossed my title 'cherish' and the 'Corner Thick Vine' with brown embossing powder.

I cut the 'Corner Thick Vine' in three pieces to place them under my flowers and around my picture.


 2 Crafty products used:
- Elsa Frame
- Corner Thick Vine
- Fine Word Set 1 (cherish)

I hope that I have inspired you, have a nice crafty day!
