'Daddy's Girl Forever'
Layout by Rachael Funnell

Hello everyone!
Rach back with you all today, sharing this layout I created 
using some FABULOUS 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces....

Daddy's girl - Title
6x6 Crazy stitched panel
Mini Camera
Fine word Forever from set 1 

For my 'Daddy's Girl' title I started by giving it a coat of gesso &
once it had dried, I coloured it using some 'Cracked Pistacho' &
 'Spun Sugar' Distress Crayons..

I then inked the fine word "Forever" with black ink
and incorporated this in my title...

Using a larger Camera from the Mini Camera set
and with a dry paint brush, I ever so lightly painted on the gesso, 
making sure not to loose any of the camera delicate details..
Finishing off the Camera by inking the edges black!

The 2018 I gave it two thick coats of gesso before 
colouring it with the same distress Crayon 'Spun Sugar'. 

Lastly the 6x6 Crazy Stitched Panel,
I first gave it a coat of gesso, & once dry I cut it up 
into lots of smaller pieces and glued them randomly
 on my onto the base....

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope I have inspired you 
 in some way!!!

Until next time  xx

Tranquil Moments by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty fans!

Today I'd like to share a layout I made as a guest designer for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration for their Case No. 300 challenge! 

For this challenge, I was really inspired by the monochromatic background and punchy accent colors, and I had the perfect chipboards to achieve a stunning effect!

"Tranquil Moments"

On the "Decorative disc set in the back, I applied black paint and then dabbed some pink metallic embossing ink. For the "Frangy" just on top of it, I use honey colored ink, then added some orange embossing ink on top, dabbed some pink embossing ink and finally traced the borders with black ink.

On the "6 Dotted Heart Circle Frame", I applied green embossing ink.
 For the "12" Border Delicate Lace" right behind it, I used pink embossing enamel.

For the title text, "Word Tranquil Moments", I used black sand-effect embossing powder.

The following 2Crafty chipboards were used for this layout:

 6"Dotted Heart Circle Frames [FR0120]
Delicate Lace Border [DB0120]
Frangy [M00121]
Decorative Disc set #2 [M00808]
Tranquil Moments [W00566]

That's all for me today!
 I hope you enjoyed this layout and it gave you some new ideas for your own creations! 
See you soon with new creations to share with you!

Cherished Moments - with Karan Gerber

Hi Friends and welcome to the 2 Crafty Blog today,
 its Karan here to share some inspiration with you.

 I designed a flatboard canvas as my project with a couple of step-by-step photos
 of the steps I used to alter the chipboard.

Cherished Moments:

To begin, I added some texture paste to the corner piece, painted with Burnet Seinna
 acrylic paint and added some gold.
 When I added it to the layout, it was a bit dark so I toned it down with gesso. 

The Flourish Shrub I used two of these and heat set using aged ivory embossing powder.
 Once this was done I cut these into two pieces each to add more leaves to the clusters of flowers. 

Some lovely close ups of the chipboard.

The adornment piece, I used texture paste, some acrylic paint and toned down with gesso. 

For the title, I used paper texture paste and heat set

I hope you have enjoyed todays project, here are the
 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I used today.

Good Day Layout by Elena

Happy day my dear friends!
Today I want to show my layout, 
which was made in collaboration with the blog More than words.
I was looking for inspiration for this work in the word Success.
A couple of years ago I quite successfully conducted live workshops 
in the Studio of the Creative people store in my city.

We worked both in small companies and in large groups. 
I remember one day when the girls came to me to make layouts.
 It was incredibly nice to be recognized as a master who can teach something. 
t was a real SUCCESS for me.

I added a lot of dials to the layout as a symbol of the fact that 
the time in our classes flew by very quickly. 
We did not notice how 3-4 hours passed. 
We still continue to communicate and meet.

 Scrapbooking was the key to the door behind 
which opened a delightful world of creativity! 
So I added a metal KEY next to our picture.

2Crafty Chipboard used:

I took a sheet of  paper by Blue Fern Studio as a background.

 The lovely twigs Angie's Vines  were painted with light green paint 
and added embossing powder Oakleaf Olive by Lindy's.

 I decorated the Clock Face Frames  and Line Words - Happiness Borders  with brown paint and powder Twilight Bronze Slate.

That's it for today!
 I hope I could inspire you in one way or another. 
Thank you for stopping by today!
