this Girl - by Robin Schelin

 Hi all, thanks for stopping by the blog!

I'm sharing another layout of my granddaughter from many years ago. She was sunning herself in the middle of the backyard. This was the perfect title for this photo. I laugh and shake my head sometimes at the things she does! Such a great memory!

"this GIRL"

BeeYoutiful Set

this GIRL

Squiggly Circle Arrow Journal Spots

Gesso the chipboard first.  Even if you don't use a lot of mediums, what you DO use will come out better!

So, I didn't use a lot of chipboard on this layout because I didn't think it needed it. But it did need some! This title in particular! Perfect for this girl, like I said earlier. She is such a ham! this GIRL was just painted with White Acrylic Paint. I know that I use white on a lot of my chipboard, but sometimes that's all you need to use to get the desired overall look you're going for.

Same thing with the honeycomb from the BeeYoutiful Set. Just simply painted white. Peeking out from under the leaves is subtle, but necessary!

Here is one of the Squiggly Circle Arrow Journal Spots. I just love these little arrows! Perfect for pointing at this GIRL!!  I covered it with white Gesso and left it that way. I wanted it to be white, but not as bright as the title. It's more like the muted color of the daisies surrounding the photo. 

And lastly, here is another piece of honeycomb from the BeeYoutiful Set peeking out up at the top right under the leaves balancing out the bottom left. 

I hope you like this layout of my silly, quirky little granddaughter!

By Charmane Sharp

Bright Summer vibes evoked today with this layout I'm sharing of my
family. The orange and blue combination is refreshing and makes you
feel happy to be enjoying the sun.

2Crafty Chipboard used...

Seashells set 2
Foliage set 7
Fishing net bits
Circle Tag set 1

Using a water brush I coloured them from the outside in so the colour
fades in. Once dry I highlighted the detail lines with less water so it
painted darker creating contrast. They become a feature of the layout.

I opted for a small title by using a Circle Tag and love how watercolour
can create highlights and lowlights by blending different concentrates of
the same colour. By using the Blue it pops off the Fishing net piece which
I kept in natural tones. A great textural addition.

Cutting up the Foliage gives more pieces to add wonderful design to my 
groupings of Ephemera, Flowers, 2Crafty Seashells and Fabric Washi Tape.
Watercoloured the same as the Tag but kept the colour deeper on the swirls
and lighter on the leaves.

Hope you have been inspired by my bright beach layout today. If your

Until next time...

with Lisa Amiet


Hello all!
It's Lisa back on the blog today to share my latest creation with you,
a layout featuring my son.


2Crafty products used:

For this layout, I used one of the 'Thin Rectangle Stacked Frames'
to frame my photo, 
that I have inked black for a matt finish.

I have also used one of the 'Circle Maze Set',
again inked black, and tucked into my elements. 

I also used one of the small springs from the 'Industrial Spring Set',
also inked black, and adhered in the corner of my page.

To finish I used one of the 'Bulldog Clip Set',
again inked in black, to hold my title. 

I am loving the pop of matt black on this layout, 
I hope that you also like it.

Until next time!

Layout and tutorial by Marie Sabatier

Hello everyone,

I present to you my first inspiration of this month of March. A male layout on the theme of travel. 
Using for the first time this beautiful chipboard "Weathered Clock Face Frame".


I made a video tutorial that you can watch HERE

The 2Crafty chipboard used:

- 12x12 Weathered Clock Face Frames
- Summer Kombi
- Luggage 
- Squiggle Circle Arrow Journal Spots

As you can see in the video, I started by applying a layer of with gesso on each chipboard.

On the chipboard 'Weathered Clock Face', I used distress oxides of color "spiced marmelade, "brushed corduroy" and "frayed burlap". 
To bring shine I randomly rub with metallic wax color "Bronze Age" and "Firebird". 

I slightly adjusted the frame to match the drawing on my paper.

Here, on the chipboard "Summer Kombi" I play with two shades of blue to bring a touch of nuance.

I proceed in the same way on the luggage and on the chipboard "Squiggle Circle Arrow".
I like to see how chipboards can be transformed and sublimated. 

To finish preparing the chipboards, I opt for a nice green on the title. 

Watching the video is a good way to get more details. 

Thank you for your visit.

By Di Garling

Well hi there & hello, thanks so much for stopping by.
Di Garling
 here with you today with a little mixed media layout
to hopefully inspire you.

2Crafty Chipboard Used....
"Adorable" title
Mini Scissors Set
Flowers Set #1
12"x 12" Clock Face

Before I could start I set about altering some of the awesome
chipboard pieces I had chosen for this project. I have used the 8"
clock face frame from the "12x12 Clock Face Frame Set" as my base.
I altered it using various acrylic paints.

I decided to leave the "Adorable" title & also the flowers from the
  "Flower Set #1" in their raw state because it just matched
 in so well with the colours of my layout.

You can see in the above photo what I mean &  I simply tucked
the raw chipboard flowers in under the paper flowers to create
some extra layers!!

I have also used one of the little "Mini Scissors" on top of the bottom
flower cluster, & again to create another layer of dimension.
 Those little scissors are soooo sweet. 💙

Well thats all I have for you today. 😀

I am releasing this layout as a KIT.
For all the details etc

Until next time….

"What a Wonderful Treasure You Are" Reversed Canvas by Amy Voorthuis

Goodmorning lovely 2Crafty friends, 
I am so happy you are visiting this blog today for this post I made a reversed canvas. I really enjoy working with all the pretty chipboard pieces by 2Crafty Chipboard. For this canvas I have used two pictures of our little bundle of joy {who is not so little anymore} Abbey! I wanted to create a lot of depth in this piece enjoy my post.....

What a Wonderful Treasure You Are: 

 2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Interlocking Grid Panels
Fine Word Set 1
Word Circle Set 1
Mixed Buttons
Frame Fine Circle With Butterflies
Roxy's Flourish Vine
6 " Circle Revolution Frames
What a Wonderful Miracle You Are Title

You know what's amazing, you can order directly from the
2Crafty website here so you can also play with their amazing chipboard pieces.

I treated all the chipboard pieces the same way firstly I added two layers of white gesso and then some matte acrylic paint in different shades for some of the pieces I used two layers of embossing powders and for the other pieces I added some matte waxes. 

I cut the word "Miracle" out of the beautiful phrase and added the word "Treasure" to the phrase. On the background of my canvas I added some machine stitching around the edges and a stencil and some tearing in the corners & behind the pictures and behind that I placed the interlocking grid panels with some cheese cloth.
