Maiko's First Post as a DT Member for 2Crafty

Hi everyone!
Maiko Kosugi here today and 
so happy to be posting to 2Crafty Chipboard for the first time!

I am so honoured to be amongst so many talented designers.

I have three layouts to share with today.

"First Birthday"

This first page, I created this layout using a photo of the my 3rd lovely son's first birthday. 

First up I used the "Birdcage 4".
I applied white acrylics paints , and I have heat embossed them using
embossing paste and Powder and Glitter. 

Next up I used "Squiggly Heart Cluster".

I cut this in half and have arranged it to the right and left of the photo. 
This lovely little bird is contained together with "Birdcage4".
These are  simply painted  with an acrryic paint and Gelato.

Next up ,I have used  the "Frag Banner".
This is also simply painted with an acrylic paint and Gelatos.
The heart arranged on Flag is "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars".
First a coat of an acrylic paint,next a coat of Liquid Pearls 
to create a lovely brightness .

I used "First Birthday Mini Title".
First, I painted this one with acrylic paint,then next a coat of Liquid Pearls 
to the upper and lower sides & finally I painted this with white ink.

Next up...


I thought that I would like to make a layout of "kite-flying." 
Therefore, I was very glad, to find that 2crafty has a chipboard of a kite. 

I have used a packet of 2Crafty "Kites".
I painted this with an acryliic paint,then rubbed with a brown ink pad.
Next I have added some embossing powder and Bronze Glitters.

I have placed "Leafty Shr ub Set2"in both my flower clusters 
on either side of my photo.

Firstly,I painted these with an acrylic paint, next up  I have heat embossed
them using embossing paste and crackled texture paste
before finishing off by rubbing with an olive ink pad.

I have also used a packet of 2crafty "EveryDay Font L/C" as a title.

My last creation to share today is here.
"Sweet Child of Mine"
I have used the theme of Hearts for this layout and have continued this throughout the layout,
using a few different types.

I have layered a "Corner Heart Spray" In the lower part of my photo.
I painted it with an acrylic paint, a crackled texture paste, 
Gelatos and I covered it in Liquid Pears.

"Chunky Hearts"

 "Heart Silhouettes"

These "Word Circles Set 1"are so cute!
I painted this as well as the other chipboards. 

"Sweet Child of Mine Title"
This title suits this photo very well.

That is all from me today.
