Tammy's June Shares

Hi 2 Crafties!!

Tammy here to share my June creations with you.

First up is a layout titled

"Live out Loud"

A bright fun layout celebrating friendships.
I am a big fan of colour!! and as this layout celebrates a fun occasion vibrant colour is perfect.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
'Flower Doilies'
'Grid Bits'
'Lattice Leaves'
'Live out Loud Title'

                                                                                          I began by adding paint to the background.
Onto this I applied a stencil with transparent gloss gel.
This just gives a bit of texture to the background without detracting from the photos.

I added some stamping with black ink to help blend the paint into the cardstock.

I then applied gesso to the 'Grid Bits'.

and also to the 'Flower Doilies'.

I painted the 'Live out Loud' title in black paint

I also painted the 'Lattice Leaves' with the black paint too.

I love how the black pops against the colour and also the white background.

I finished off the layout by layering up behind the photos and adding a cluster of flowers.

Finally to finish I added a few flicks and splashes of black paint, 
and some quotes to help tell the story.

My next creation is totally different.

I've gone grungy and rustic.

It's titled:

"Adventure awaits"

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

"Chevron Bits"
"Steampunk Medium Gears"
"Steampunk Small Gears"
"Chain lengths"
"Adventure loopy title"
"Chained Circle Frames"
"Assorted Arrows"

I grunged up the background paper by adding some stamping in black ink, 
and also some flicks and blobs of spritz.

I also added some random strips of paper, to which I applied gesso.

As I wanted some of the chipboard to look like rusty metal, I applied Finnabair's Rust Effect Paste.

I was thrilled with how it came out.  So simple.

The rust comes in 3 colours - Red Rust, Brown Rust and Gold Rust.

I just rubbed it over the chipboard quite randomly.

I did this for the 'Steampunk Small Gears' and 'Steampunk Medium Gears'

and also for the 'Chained Circle Frames' and the 'Chain Lengths'.

I painted a few 'Assorted Arrows' and 'Chevron Bits' in black, and also added 
black paint to my title 'Adventure loopy font'.

I then added some extra embellishments - quotes, metal bits and flicks of paint.

I really enjoyed doing a grungy layout.
 It's been a long time as I get so distracted by COLOUR!

This layout really reminded me to step out of my comfort zone and try something a little different.

I hope you do too!!

I thought I'd share one more layout that I recently created  for Scrap the Girls.

Of course I used 2Crafty Chipboard on it....

I use 2Crafty Chipboard on every layout!!!

It's titled

"Work in Progress"

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:

'Polaroid Assorted Frames'
'Fine Heart Border'


I painted the 'Fine Heart Borders'

I painted the 'Polaroid Assorted Frames' and then stamped randomly on top of this.

Well that's it from me!

You can see more on my BLOG.

Happy creating!!
