March Projects Plus a PHOTO TUTORIAL
By Kavitha

Hello 2crafty fans, 
 Kavitha here today to share my March projects.This month I
 have a couple of layouts and a canvas to share.

"Magical Garden"

I created a mysterious/magical garden theme layout on
a black background with metallic colors. 2Crafty has lots of
 beautiful flourish designs which are my absolute favorite
and I have used quiet a lot of them in this layout.

The large leafy vine is heat embossed with blue shabby embossing enamel,
I cut them up into two pieces and used among my floral cluster.

I have also used the corner twisted vines with
my embellishment cluster in the corner.

2Crafty chipboards used:
Angel Wings
Corner Twisted Vine
Large Leafy Vine
Ava's Frame
Addy's Butterflies


The main highlight of this layout is Angie's vines. It is so beautiful and big 
enough to cover a lot of area. I heat embossed it using
brown sugar embossing powder, cut up the biggest one into two pieces
and used them on all three sides around the photo.

I heat embossed lattice leaf with gold and used among the floral arrangement.
Finished off the layout with the title "Dream" which is heat embossed with white.

2Crafty Chipboards used:
Angie's vines
Lattice leaf
Mini word set #2

"Living the Dream" - Canvas tutorial

My last project is a canvas with a short tutorial.
I applied a thick coat of black gesso over the canvas and sprinkled some art stones.
Once it dried I arranged an old paint brush, clay/metal embellishments
along with 2crafty chipboard. I gave it another coat of black gesso for the whole canvas.

With a dry brush I colored the raised areas with dark velvet
and watermelon mist acrylic colors

Now for the highlight I used rose gold and violet gold opal magic paints.
