January Inspiration - Two layouts
By Mary Catt


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

 The first layout was designed with 7dots studio papers from the 
''Thoughts Keeper'' collection, Petaloo flowers and Scrap Unlimited embellishments.

 I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL of the procedure.

Angie's Vines
Key Set Mini's
Mini Word Set 2

Some close ups...

To design my background I used modeling paste with a stencil. When dried, I colored the background with some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and made a few splatters of ''White'' 13arts Splash ink.

 I heat embossed the ''Angie's Vines'' chipboards with ''Oakleaf Olive'' Lindy's powder. The little key and the key lock chippies from the ''Key Set Mini's'' and the title were also embossed with
''Spring Leaf Chartreuse''.

When everything were glued down, I added some microbeads in ''Bronze'' with gel medium.

 ''Enjoy Your Journey''

And the second one was made with 13arts paper from the
 ''Mental Vacation'' collection and Petaloo flowers.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...

I based my page on the Mixed Media & Art January challenge.

And a closer look on the details...

I gave texture on the background with modeling paste and a stencil.
Then, I used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to color my page.

I heat embossed the ''Flourish 2'' and the title chipboards with ''Hollyhock Scarlet Plum''
Lindy's powder. The butterfly from the ''Marianne's Butterflies'' set and the ''Curly Panel'' chipboard pieces with ''Hibiscus Rose Orange''.

When everything were glued down, I added some mica flakes in ''Frozen'' with gel medium.
A final touch with some white splatters and my page was ready.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

See you here again next month...
