My November Shares-Janice Nicholls

Hello 2Crafty fans!

Today its my turn to share three more layouts with you.
My first layout has lots of the new 2Crafty chipboard pieces on it.
They are fantastic pieces and so easy to add to what ever it is you are creating- a layout, 
an Off the Page project, Canvases or Cards....there is something for everyone.

{a good day today}

 2Crafty Chipboard Pieces Used;
Film Strip medium
Crazy Arrows
Line words- Happiness Borders-good day
Alpha Set 1
Interlocking Grid Panel
Circle Words Set 1

Here you can see four different pieces of chippie.
 Alpha Set 1, Film Strip, Line Word and a Crazy Arrow.
Before I start colouring my chippie, each piece is coated with gesso...
this can be done with a sponge,  a paint brush or your fingers.
All the colouring is done with versa colour Inks.
The "a" is coloured with Silver.
The film strip is coloured with Neptune  and lightly swiped with Silver.
The line word - "good day"- is coloured using Royal Blue and Olive and
 hi lighted with Silver.
The Crazy Arrow is coloured with Neptune and Royal Blue and daubed with Silver.

Chipboard is great for adding layers to your pages too.
I love these Word Circles.  Pop over to the 2Crafty website and check out all the
different words. They can be used as part of your title or as a title for your layout.
This is coloured using Olive Green and Royal Blue.
The Interlocking Grid Panel is fantastic. I snipped it up and added some to the
 bottom of my page, coloured with Olive, Narcissus and touches of Royal Blue.

More layers using the Alpha Set and Interlocking Grid Panel.

How Crazy are these Arrows!

A close up of the new Line Words- Happiness Borders- good day-
They come in sets of 3. 
I used string to tie the word onto the Film Strip.

TIP: an easy way to adhere your chippie pieces is to staple them on.

 2Crafty Chipboard Pieces Used;
love loopy font
Alpha Set 1
Hessian Patch Panel
Chevron Bits

A NEW  Chippie  piece *Hessian Patch Panel*
I have used this to frame the photo. I randomly daubed it with Charcoal Ink so
 you could still see some of the raw colour peeking through.
I have layered a couple of paper covered Chevron Bits on top of it.

love- loopy font- this is a favourite of mine...there are so many of these loopy font words.
All are just perfect for putting that sometimes hard to find title on your page.
 They can be coloured to suit your layout or even left  raw which also look fantastic.
 I have coloured this with an orange watercolour pencil and then sprayed it with
Mister Hueys Colour Mist -Sunshine.
You can see a small piece of the Hessian Patch tucked under the photo.
Another paper covered Chevron Bit and the U is from the Alpha Set

These letters were selected from the Alpha Set 1.
All coloured using 3 different Inks- canary, pinecone and celadon

2014 -another of my favourite pieces....that all important date.
Coloured with Canary Ink
....and more of the Hessian Patch.

My last share for this month since its almost December,
 is  a Christmas  layout- a favourite time of the year for me.

{Christmas in a Winter Wonderland}

 2Crafty Chipboard Pieces Used;
Funky Snowflakes
ATC tiny Hearts and Stars
Merry Christmas Script Card Pack-Christmas

My inspiration for this layout came from a digital  page.
  This  photo was taken by my daughter last year in Churchill....Yes, she was lucky
 enough to experience a White Christmas.This is the home she lived in for 10 days.
 How magical does it look!
The little photo of Sarah was taken Christmas morning...she too loves Christmas.

Funky Snowflakes are scattered on my page and coloured with gesso, white ink and
 Mister Hueys Chalkboard Mist and each one has an ATC tiny Star attached to the centre.

ATC tiny Hearts and Stars-coloured with Scarlet and Gold Ink.
The Stars were placed randomly on the layout.
Circles- coloured with Gold and used to hi light the photo. 

This Christmas script word is just Gorgeous.
Coloured with Rose Red Ink.
 It comes from a Merry Christmas Script Card Pack.
 There are four  Merry Christmas word in a pack.

I have used a spray adhesive to stick this down.
