2Crafty Inspiration for February

Hi everyone.
Today I have my February projects that I made with the gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard to share with you. This month I made a layout and a canvas, plus I also have my layout made for the CSI case file #248.

#Beauty

First up is my layout, I love circles so I've used 2 different Circle frame sets on this page.


2Crafty Chipboard Products Used:
Lucy's Flourish Frame
6" Circle Revolution Frames
Hashtag Word Set 1
Leafy Twig Branches



I used the 2 smallest frames from the 6" Circle Revolution Frame Set, the larger one to frame one photo and the smallest I cut in half and placed on the edges of the layout. I coated the frames in white gesso before I coloured them with a yellow watercolor .


I also coated the Lucy's Flourish Frame in white gesso first and then I added colour using a Twinkling H20 in Plum Blossom. 


I coloured the title #Beauty and the Leafy Twig Branches with Lindy's Gang Magicals, on the title I used the colour Salt Water Taffy and on the branches I used Sea Mint Green. I cut the Branches into little pieces and tucked in under my flowers.

Papers, flowers and embellishments from the Prima Lavender collection.

Timeless Canvas


Next up is a soft and delicate canvas. The Brickwork panel was perfect for this canvas and it goes so well paired with lots of flowers.


2Crafty Chipboard Products Used:
Brick Panel
Gemma's Corners
Fine Word Set 2
Indian Feathers



I wanted to colour the Brickwork panel to match the colour of the shutters, I used the Lindy's Gang embossing powder in Golden Angel Wings on the raw chipboard to give it a shine. Then I randomly added some white gesso on top to tone down the colour and give a more shabby look. 



For the title from the Fine Word Set 2 and the Gemma's Corner pieces I primed with white gesso before I coloured them with Prima Aryclic paint in Vintage Rose.



I used the Indian Feathers more as leaves on this canvas, they are such versitle pieces. I primed them with white gesso before adding a light teal embossing powder. The Indian feathers have very fine detail lines on them so only apply a very light coat of gesso with a sponge so the lines don't get covered up.

Life Documented

My final layout today is made for the latest CSI case file #248 which 2Crafty is sponsoring this month.



2Crafty Chipboard Products Used:

Life Documented
6" Circle Revolution Frames
Sharon's Butterflies
Circle Lace Panel
Swaying Branches


And the CSI Case file #248


On this layout I left the background plain as I used gorgeous foil paper that didn't need anything extra added. All the chipboard pieces were coloured with Gelatos. Gelatos are an amazing and easy way to alter chipboard, I always coat the chipboard pieces in white gesso first so the colours of the Gelatos stand out more. 


I used the largest frame from the 6" Circle Revolution Frames pack and coloured this with the Silver Ice Gelato.  I had left over bits from the Circle Lace Panel that I coloured in a Chocolate Gelato


The Swaying Branches were coloured in the Pistashio Gelato, 
The Life Documented title was mainly left with the white gesso but I added a little Bubble Gum Gelato to the edges. The Sharon's Butterflies were left white in the centers and the wings were coloured with the Bubble Gum and Guava Gelatos
