September Inspiration
Two Layouts To Share
By Di Garling

"Follow Your Heart"

Hi there 2Crafty fans, thanks for stopping by. Today I have two layouts to 
share with you. For this first one I have kept it really soft & subtle & very
neutral & I have even left the chipboard pieces in their raw state,
something I rarely do, but with this layout it just worked best.

2 Crafty Chipboard Used..
Ava's Frame
Follow Your Heart - title
Lacey Border Set #1

This is one of the new release titles from 2Crafty. 
Don't you just love this font? I know I do. 

Next up I have used another new release frame. This one is called
"Ava's Frame" & it is so soft & delicate & I just love the way this
flourish hangs down from it. The perfect piece to frame my photos.

Another new release piece I have used is this gorgeous border I have used
across the top of my page. It is from the "Lacey Borders Set #1" & these
come three pieces in a pack, so I still have two left to use later.

This gorgeous background paper & all the flowers I have used 
are from 49 and Market. Beautiful aren't they.

"It's A Boy Thing"

For my second layout today I have stepped way way out of my 
comfort zone !!! I wanted to go crazy with lots of colour & lots of messy.
I think I have achieved it !! I had all these photos of my gorgeous grandson 
Henry & I just couldn't decide which to use, SO I went mad & used them all.
That is something else I rarely do, but I think it works, well I hope so anyway.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
It's A Boy Thing - title
Dotty Bits
Stars Multi Pack
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Multi Pack
Geotags Multi Pack
2016 Dates

First up I have simply painted this "It's A Boy Thing - title" with some
yellow acrylic paint, after firstly coating it with some gesso.

Next up I have used some of the "Dotty Bits" circle pieces & simply
coloured them using a black ink pad. Too easy.

I also used a "2016 Date" which I painted the same as the title.

In this photo you can see the cluster I have created at the top of the photos using a 
large "Star" from the "Stars Multi Pack", as well as  some tiny stars from the 
 "Tiny ATC Hearts & Stars" pack. All were just painted with acrylic paint.

On the right side of this pic you can see I have also used some 
of the "Geotags". Perfect for when you just need a little something.

Well thats all from me today. I will see you back here again next month.
