2Crafty Creations By Georgia Heald

Hi everyone :)
 I am very excited to be able to share my very first creations as a
 2Crafty design team member with you all.

My first layout is of my 15 year old son. If you happen to be the owner
 of one of these guys, you can probably relate to this layout. He is
 all smiles and laughs up until I bring the camera out, then I get death stares....
The 2 Crafty Film Strips were perfect for my photo theme. I have used
 one tiny and one small strip. I have inked them with black ink, 
then added some detailing with some bronze heat embossing powder.

 For extra detail I have added some 2Crafty chevron bits which are fantastic
 for masculine layouts and gave me the opportunity to add extra color
 to my layout. I have painted them with Gesso and then
 Luminarte H20 Watercolor Paint. I love how the paint over the 
Gesso has a streaky shaded effect. I have also added a 2Crafty 
Arrow across the top of my photo which has been shaded with
 distress ink. I  also added a 2Crafty ATC element swirl 
which has been roughly painted with gesso.

Next up is a layout I have created of my step-son and father-in-law
 who recently lost a long battle with cancer. This photo was taken
 at my wedding so I wanted to keep the feel romantic but also 
capture his cheeky nature on his better days.

I have used a 2Crafty Evan's Swirl under my photo which was perfect 
for the romantic feel of a wedding. This has been painted with
 Luminarte H20 Watercolor Paint along with the
 2Crafty Corner Pieces and Name Plate. 

Next up I have created a card with the left overs from my layout.
 I just adore the 2Crafty Love You title piece. I think it just
 makes a card that little bit more special than
 a boring sentiment stamp!

I have added the 2Crafty Corner Mini Set 2, to frame my cards edges.
 I have also used one of the beautiful 2Crafty delicate butterflies.
 To create the graduated color, I have inked in black, applied some
 white heat embossing powder then with a paint brush, gently brushed 
some off around the edges before setting. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
 I hope to have inspired you in some way :)
