July Inspiration - A Layout & a Canvas
By Mary Catt


Hello 2Crafty fans!
It's Mary here with you today and I have two projects and two video tutorials to share with you.

I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure.

2Crafty Chipboards used...
Circle Dot Frames 
Leafy Shrub Set 2
Mini Word Set 1

Some close ups...

  I created texture on my background by applying modeling paste through a stencil.
When dried, I used ''Cattail Copper Brown'' and ''Bayou Boogie Gold''
 Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to color my page.

I heat embossed the ''Circle Dot Frame'', the ''Leafy Shrub Set 2'' chipboards and the
 title from the ''Mini Word Set 1''  with ''Byzantine Bronze'' Lindy's powder.

To finish, I added some Bronze micro beads and Plum Glass Glitter
and made some splatters with white acrylic artist ink.

''Live Laugh Love''

My second project is a canvas made with several chippies and lots of shells.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...


2Crafty Chipboards used...
Flourish 1
Mesh Bits
Pointed Doily Frames
Live Love Laugh title

And a closer look at the details...

To start, I primed my canvas with white gesso. Then, I created texture with modeling 
paste and a stencil and I heat embossed the pattern with some embossing powder.

I added some color with the ''Bayou Boogie Gold'' and the
 ''Cattail Copper Brown'' Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.

I heat embossed the ''Mesh Bits'' and the ''Flourish 1'' chipboards with the ''Queen Sheba's Silver'' Lindy's powder and the ''Pointed Doily Frames'' with the ''Midnight Copper''. The title and some leftover chippies were also embossed with the ''Gilded Burgundy Brass'' powder.

Lastly I made some splatters with white artists acrylic ink.

Well, that's all for today... 

See you again next month!
