October Inspiration - Two Layouts PLUS TWO VIDEO TUTORIALS
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.
My first layout was made with lots of flowers, metal and wooden embellishments combined
with some beautiful chipboard pieces.
I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure. 


2Crafty Chipboards used...
Esther Vine
Arrow Word Set 2
6" Circle Revolution Frames

Here are some close ups..

First, I made a mixed media background with modeling paste and a stencil and made some
 random stamping. Then, I added color with the ''Bayou Boogie Gold'' and the
 ''Dark Chocolate Truffle'' Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.

While waiting everything to dry, I heat embossed the ''Circle Revolution Frame'' with the ''Orbit Olive Gold'' Lindy's embossing powder and the ''Esther Vine'' with the ''Bratwurst Brown'' powder.

The ''Happy'' title from the ''Arrow Word Set 2'' was also heat embossed

  with the ''Bratwurst Brown'' powder.
Finally, I added some plum glass beads and made some splatters
 with 13arts Splash ink in white.


My second layout is a grunge page created with lots of chipboards
 along with some metal embellishments and flowers.
You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...



 I based it on the ''Mixed Media & Art'' October challenge.
2Crafty Chipboards used...
Film Strips Tiny
6" Clock Face Frames
Mini Travel Word Set 2
Flourish Adornment Set 4

And a closer look at the details...

I made a mixed media backgound with some stamping first and then heat embossed the pattern with the ''Bratwurst Brown'' Lindy's embossing powder. Then, I created more texture with modeling paste and a stencil, and I used the ''Cattail Copper Brown'' and the ''Dark Chocolate Truffle'' Lindy's sprays to add some color. Some black splatters was made with a splash ink.

I heat embossed the title from the ''Mini Travel Word Set 2'' and the ''Flourish Adornment Set 4'' with the ''Black Forest Black'' powder.

The ''Clock Face Frames'' chipboards were also heat embossed with the ''Midnight Gold'' powder and the ''Film Strips Tiny'' & ''Dreamcatcher'' chipboards with the ''Bratwurst Brown'' powder.

 To finish, I added some copper glass glitter along with some bronze micro beads and made some splatters with white acrylic artists ink.

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