'#AWESOME" - By Elisa Ablett
September Inspiration

Hi 2Crafty fans 🙋

My turn up on the blog today with my latest 2Crafty creation for September. 

I wanted to create a graffiti inspired mixed media layout to match this gorgeous 
photo of my son and my great nephew and a graffiti wall at the local skate park.

The background was created with Distress Oxide inkpads and circles punched 
from old book paper on a black background and features awesome chippy 
pieces coloured to match the background.


For this layout I used the following Chipboard Pieces- 


 #Awesome
Mini Sampler Set 1
Brick Panel

Here are some close ups of the finer details -


For the title #AWESOME, I painted it with a white Posca Paint pen and then let it dry, 
once dry I swiped my blue inkpad across the bottom of the title.


I inked the chevron pieces and small circles from the  Mini Sampler Set 
 of chipboard with different Oxide inkpads to match the background, once dry 
I stamped over the top of the small inked circles.


I cut off two panels off the brick 6 x6 panel of chippie and coloured it with the
 distress oxide inkpads, layer the colour one by one to achieve a distress graffitti look!


Colour your chevrons and diecuts with splattered oxide ink by swiping your inkpad 
onto a craft mat and spritzing with water. Then using a paint brush gather some of
 the liquid and splatter it layer by layer onto your diecuts and desired chipboard pieces.


 Finishing touch is to add splashes of gold ink onto your page!

That's it from me today, thank you for stopping by the blog.
