Tammy's May Shares

Good morning 2 Crafties!!
Today I'm sharing a couple of layouts with you.
The first one is titled:



This one is about documenting a guest book I created for a very special wedding we attended. 
I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to create it and really wanted to have a memory of this.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
"Polaroid Assortment Frames"
"Frame Viney Circles"
"Lace Heart Frames"
"Love Loopy Font Title"
"Grid Bits"
"ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars"
"Flower Doilies"

I applied white gesso to the "Grid Bits", a "Viney Circle Frame" and to the 
"Love Loopy Title".  I then added white paint. 

 I decided to keep them plain white as a contrast to the dark background paper.
I tucked a few "Polaroid Assorted Frames" into my clusters - these I heat embossed 
with a gorgeous shabby chic metallic emboss powder.
I also tucked in a few of the gorgeous "Flower Doilies". 
I applied white gesso to these and then added a gold spritz to give them a slight colour/glow.
I added a "Lace Heart Frame" and decided to leave this plain - as the raw colour really complemented the layout and also I had added a lot of white chipboard to that particular area,
 so it contrasted with those pieces nicely.

Finally to bring out the touch of red in the layout, I painted a few little hearts from the  
"ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars" in a red colour and scattered these around the layout.
I did a lot of layering and clustering in this layout, and unlike my usual style of bright, 
full-on colour,  I was very controlled and added just a splash of colour here and there.


My next share for this month for 2Crafty is titled:


A page about the mutual love and adoration between my son and our pet kitty. (So Cute!)

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

"Fine Word Set 1"
"6" Revolution Frame"
"Polaroid Assorted Frames"
"Circle Frames"
"Mini Sampler Set 1"
"Triangle Set"
"Chain Lengths"

This page is more to my usual style - bold colour!
I couldn't stay away from it for too long!

I painted the title 'adore' from the "Fine Word Set 1" black, as I did some of the
 "Circle Frames" and also the smaller circles from the "Mini Sampler Set 1".

I love how black contrasts with bold colour.

I applied gesso to the "Chain Lengths" and also the "6" Revolution Frame".

I also applied gesso to some of the "Polaroid Assorted Frames" and then I stamped 
onto these using a mini chevron pattern and black ink. 
I wanted these to look a bit artsy - definitely not perfect, so I just stamped randomly
 without thinking about how even it was. 

I added some pieces of scrap paper to the "Triangle Set".
I love how this adds a bit more colour to the layout.


So that's it from me this month!

I hope you are inspired to get your scrappy on!
