Tammy's October Shares

Hello lovely 2 Crafty Chipboard fans.
Today I'm sharing with you my most recent creations.
My first page is titled:

'Loving These Moments'

It's a layout that celebrates my brother and his son.
I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard on this layout:
'Loving these Moments title'
'Chicken Barbed Wire - Small'
'Steampunk Gears - Small'
'Steampunk Gears - Medium'
'Chain Circle Frames'
I cut down the 'Chicken Wire Panel - small' and smeared Finnabair's Rust Paste in
 Gold, Brown and Red randomly over it.  I just used my fingers.
I love the rust look and the texture this creates.
I then added some Silks Acrylic Glaze Paint in 'Ocean Wave'. 
I love how this blue colour matches the blue in my photo so well.

I repeated this process on the 'Steampunk Gears - Small'
and the 'Steampunk Gears - Medium'.

I just love the rusty finish, especially with that metallic blue added in!

I used some of the 'negative' part of the chipboard from the 'Chain Circle Frames'.  
I added it to the background, and painted it in black gesso for a bit of contrast.

Don't forget to look at the leftover bits from your chippy - they can be awesome!
They also make great stencils.

Can you tell I don't like to throw anything away?

 I also applied black gesso to the 'Loving these Moments title'.

  I just love the clusters and dimension that the chipboard gives my layout.

I love how many different options you have with chipboard - you can create
so many different finishes and so many different looks. 
Don't these look just like metal?

I created a video tutorial so you can see how I created this page:
I hope you enjoy the video.


My second creation is titled:

'Magic Happens'

  This layout is a fun one celebrating meeting the characters at Disneyland.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
'Magic Happens Title'
'ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars'
'Circular Panel'

I used white gesso and Dylusions Sprays to create the background. 
I went with the teals and limes that are dominant in Goofy's suit.
I painted some of the 'Stars' and some of the tiny stars from the
 'ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars' in a deep purple. 
I like how this purple contrasts against the teal and lime.

 I stamped them very randomly with some black archival ink to make them look a little more grungy.

 I painted the 'Magic Happens title' in black. 
I then went over the top of this, just on the 'Magic', with Clear Kindy Glitz. 
 I haven't used this product in years!!
It was fun to get it out and play with it again. 
I love how the clear Kindy Glitz turns this gorgeous teal colour when applied to black.

I repeated the same process with the 'Circular Panel' and poked these randomly around my photos.

I wanted this layout to be fun to complement the story about 'goofying around'
 with Goofy at Disneyland.
I think the glitter finish really adds to the fun magical vibe.

 It really is a gorgeous finish.

Well that's it from me for this month.

I will be back again very soon for some more sharing.
