My August Inspiration
Two Layout To Share With You
By Di Garling


Hi there lovelies, thanks for calling by.
Today I have two layouts to share with you.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Title Sweet-loopy font
Multi Modern Swirls
Film Strips Medium
Sharons Butterflies

After firstly doing a mixed media background using some
Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays in "Peony Scralet Red" & "Pink Ladies Pink"
& a touch of their Magicals in "Opal Sea Oates"
I then did some stamping & added a variety on art stones & Prills
& set to work on the chipboard.

The "SWEET" title was given a coat of gesso followed by brushing
on a watered down wash of Lindy's sprays in the above two colours of sprays.

The "Multi Modern Swirls" & the "Film Strips" were simply 
given a wipe over with some "Vintage Photo" Distress Ink. 

 I added some beautiful 49 and Market flowers & paper..

 Well there you have it. All finished.

"This Boy"

 For my second layout today I have done a boy layout featuring my cute little 
grandson Henry. I am really enjoying do some boy layouts & I hope you like it too.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
This Boy title
Puzzle Pieces
Mini Puzzle Pieces
Chain Lengths
Steampunk Gears-Small
Steampunk Gears-Medium

Again I did a mixed media beckground & then proceeded to work on all the chippie pieces.

First up I coated the "Title", "Stars" & "Mini Puzzle Pieces"with a coat of
gesso followed by a couple of coats of Silks paint in "Pretty Peridot".
I then stamped over the "Mini Puzzle Pieces" for some added interest.

Next the "Chain Lengths" & the small & medium "Gears" were simply
given a coat of metallic "Gunmetal" paint. 

When dry I brushed the gears over with a little Lindy's "Grab A Guy Gold"
 spray to give them a rusty metal look.

Now the best thing on this layout, (apart from my gorgeous grandson), 
are the large "Puzzle Pieces". I LOVE how they look. 

I firstly painted them in the same Gunmetal metallic
paint then I stamped them with an alphabet stamp & heat embossed them with some
Lindy's "Midnight Pewter" embossing powder. Really pleased with these.

Lots of mixed media on my background & also lots of stamping too.

Hey presto, all finished.

I hope I have inspired you in some small way.

Both layouts are gorgeous. So differents! The first one is so soft and feminine, as the other one is vibrant and more masculine. Yet, I can't choose my favorite. Love the finish you got on those puzzle pieces!
