June Shares by Janice Nicholls

Hello Everyone, Janice here with you today.
Sadly this is my last post as a 2Crafty Design Team member.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my 2Crafty journey.
Creating with this gorgeous chipboard and being amongst such an 
amazing team of talented girls has been  a dream come true  for me. 
Thank you Vanessa and Di for having me on the team.

My first share  is called.....

"a moment CAPTURED"

 2Crafty Chipboard Products used:
Funky Hearts
a moment CAPTURED
Mini Trees
Grass Clumps

I love these mini trees and the grass clumps have always been a favourite piece of mine.
The mini tree was left raw and inked with several layers of bronze Versa colour ink.
I  smeared gesso onto some of the leaves.
The grass clump was inked with lots of different coloured
Tim Holtz distress inks and touches of gesso. 

This is one of the special moments Jayde Norwood captured during a recent photo 
shoot for my daughter's engagement.
 This Chippie title  "a moment CAPTURED" was just perfect. It was coloured with
 Bronze and Gold versa colour inks.
The blend of the colours  matched the paper really well.

Every layout of mine has my trade mark,  a "Heart".
I love these Funky Hearts, this was simply inked with Gold ink.
 It was adhered using a pop dot to add some dimension and to be able to tuck
elements underneath and around it - the flower, paper layers and beads.

My next share is ....


2Crafty Chipboard Products used;
Esther Vine
Fanciful Butterfly
Card ATC Embellishments
Card /Invitations
Card Sentiments - Congratulations

These Fanciful Butterflies are gorgeous.
Eight pieces per pack and 3 different sizes.
I added the pattern by putting the chippie butterfly into an embossing folder
and running it through my Cuttlebug.
To add the colour I first  rubbed on some light purple gelato, added some water
 and using my fingers rubbed it to cover it all. Once it had dried I chose the
dark purple  gelato and ran it over the raised embossed pieces. I loved the effect.

Now this piece is  simply gorgeous 
I used the Esther Vine to frame my photo.
I used 2 purple  gelatos and some water to colour  this stunning and delicate flourish.

I chose Congratulations from the Card  Sentiment Pack  fo
Sarah's 21st  Birthday layout
Gelatos were used to colour the chippie sentiment.
Check out this amazing chippie piece at 2Crafty, under the 6x6  themed section.
There are so many to choose from.

My last  share  is....

...... a layout I created using this fantastic Moodboard at Jot. 
When I saw this Moodboard I knew exactly what I was going to scrap and it
 included the gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard Gymnastics Graphic Wordlet .

Sarah loved her gymnastics as a young girl.
I knew when I saw this piece it would feature on one of my  2Crafty layouts....and here it is.
2Crafty makes adding a title to your layout so easy....this was just perfect for my photo and layout.
Thank you 2 Crafty, so many of my creations feature chippie titles.
 Pop over and check out their long list of Individual Words/Phrases and Graphic Wordlets.

My trade mark Funky Heart.
Simply coloured with gelatos and  layered with an acetate heart. 

This Gymnastics   Graphic  wordlet was coloured with Gelatos and Black Ink 

These Mini Fast Forward Arrows are new releases and they are fantastic.
They were coloured with gelatos.
I added them here to help draw the eye to  part of my  journaling.

I have created a few layouts using the Gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard that I haven't shared on here.
As this is my last Design Team post I wanted to share them  with you.
