August Inspiration - Two Layouts
By Mary Catt


Hello 2Crafty fans! 
It's Mary here with you today and I have two layouts with video tutorials to share with you.
Both layouts are made with 7dots Studio papers and lots of flowers along with some of my favorite chipboards. I choose to work with some earth tone sprays and powders from Lindy's Stamp Gang.

I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure. 

 2Crafty Chipboards used...
 Lattice Leaves
Leafy Shrub Set 1
Fine Word Set 1

Here are some close ups...

 I made a mixed media background by applying modeling paste with a stencil, stamping and adding color with the ''Dark Chocolate Truffle'' and the ''South Shore Sand'' Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.

I heat embossed the ''Leafy Shrub Set 1'' with the ''Bratwurst Brown'' and the
 ''Lattice Leaves'' with the ''Midnight Bronze'' Lindy's embossing powders.

The ''Adore'' title from the ''Fine Word Set 1'' was also heat embossed
with the ''Golden Angel Wings'' powder.

After everything was glued down, I added some Plum glass beads &
bronze micro beads and my layout was ready.


My second layout has a vintage touch with a romantic feeling.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...


2Crafty Chipboards used...
Circle Stack
Decorative Rod Set
Corner Twisted Vines
 Mini Word Set 1

And a closer look at the details...

I made a mixed media backgound using the ''Dark Chocolate Truffle'' and
the ''Sea Grass Green'' Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.  

I heat embossed the ''Circle Stack'' and the ''Decorative Rod Set 1''
with the ''Oakleaf Olive'' Lindy's embossing powder.

The ''Treasure'' title from the ''Mini Word Set 1'' and the ''Corner Twisted Vines'
' were also heat embossed with the ''Midnight Bronze'' powder. 

To finish, I added some plum glass beads & bronze micro beads.

Well, that's all for today... 
I hope I gave you some inspiration!
