November Inspiration - Two layouts
PLUS TWO VIDEO TUTORIALS
By Mary Catt

''Joy - Hope - Wish''

Hello 2Crafty fans!
Mary here with you today to share two layouts and two video tutorials.

The first one is a Christmasy layout designed with 7dots studio papers from
''Yuletide'' collection and Prima Marketing flowers.

I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure.

I based my layout on November challenges over at 7dots studio,
at Berry71bleu and at More Than Words challenge blogs.   




2Crafty Chipboards used on this project...
Festive Music Notes
Xmas Mini Word Pack
Stars


Some close ups...

To design my background I used ''Ocean Breeze Blue'', ''Baby Blue Eyes Aqua'' and
 ''Delphinium Turquoise'' Lindy's Stamp Gang mists with a few splatters of ''White''
 13arts Splash ink to make it look like it's snowy.


I heat embossed the ''Festive Music Notes'' and the ''Stars'' chipboards
with ''Queen Sheba's Silver'' Lindy's powder and sprinkled them with some finnabair's white glitter. The titles were painted with ''Metallique Rich Turquoise'' Acrylic Paint.


 I also added Finnabair's Graphite paste for more texture.


A final touch with some more white splatters and my snowy background was ready.




 ''Dream Big''

 And the second one was made for C.S.I. Blog as the 2Crafty was sponsoring them
 and we were invited to be guest designers for October.

''Case file 216''

I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure.

2Crafty Chipboards used...
Polaroid Assortment Frames
 Asst Mini Camera Set
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars
Steampunk Gears Small
Gears
Dream Big Title

With this layout I'm entering at The Creative Studio November Challenge.

And a closer look...

I highlighted my paper with some white gesso and then I used white modeling paste and a
little black with different stencils to make contrast. I created my background with
''Peony Scarlet Red'' and ''Ocean Breeze Blue'' Lindy's Stamp Gang mists.


I painted the ''Dream Big'' title, the ''Stars'' and the mini camera from the ''Mini Camera Set'' chippies with ''Rich Turquoise'' Acrylic Paint. The frames from ''Polaroid Assortment Frames'' were painted with ''Aqua-Rose'' Paint.


 The ''Gears'' were stamped with ''Watering Can'' Archival Ink and the big square frame which is a left over piece from the ''Polaroid Assortment Frames'' were heat embossed with ''Tera Cotta Red'' Lindy's powder. ''Vintage Rose'' Acrylic Paint for the square left over piece.


 Thank you so much for stopping by!

See you here again next month...
