Tammy's April Shares......PLUS VIDEO Tutorial

Hi 2Crafty fans.
This month I'm sharing two layouts, and one includes a VIDEO layout!
So let's start with that one.
It's titled...

"Living the Dream"

Yep lots of colour!!!

This photo was taken on our recent family trip to the USA, specifically in Houston.
 Oh how I loved this wall!!
 2Crafty Chipboard Used..
"Circle Stack Frames"
"ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars"
"Chevron Bits"
"Living the dream title"

I painted the "Living the Dream" title black. 

I also painted some of the "Stars" black too, plus a few of the gorgeous little stars in the
 "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars".

Some of these starts I then applied Glossy Accents to give them a resin like finish.

As I was working with a lot of bright colour, I wanted to add quite a bit of black to my layout.
This gave it a 'grungy' feel rather than a rainbow feel, and also really grounded the page.

I painted some of the "Circle Frames" in a lime and vibrant blue.

To grunge these up a little, I added some random stamping with black ink.

I painted some of the "Chevron Bits" in orange, and then added 
some black ink to keep with the grunge feel.

Here's the link to the process VIDEO so you can watch how my layout came together.....
You will see I changed my mind on colours as I went!


"A Moment Captured"

Another bright layout.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used:
"Circular Panel"
"Trudi's Vine"
"A Moment Captured Title"
"ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars"

I just love that floral border called "Trudi's Vine". 
 I painted this black and placed it down the left side of my layout.

It's just gorgeous!

I also painted the "A Moment Captured title" in black.

I cut out some circles from the "Circular Panel" and painted some in pink and 
some in yellow to go with the colour theme of my layout.

I also painted some of the little hearts from the
 "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars"  pack in pink and yellow too.

This is quickly becoming one of my favourite pieces of chippy,
and is appearing on most of my layouts. 

I love how they fill in those little spots and bring the layout together.

I added the painted chippy around the vine piece and then added more embellishments -
 flowers, brads, tags, quotes, acrylic pieces, and flairs.

I have used a flair and some cool musical quotes and 
acrylic music notes all from Kit the Habit.

Well that's it from me!

I hope you enjoy my bright, colourful and fun layouts.
