Shine Bright Layout for 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone. Sadly today is my last post for 2Crafty, I have loved creating with this gorgeous chipboard and want to thank Vanessa and Di for having me on this amazing team. 
This layout is based around the Circular Leafy Frame chipboard piece, it's just so beautiful. I've had it sitting in my stash for a while now and was unsure how to use it, but I finally figured it out.

The 2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Circular Leafy Frame
Shine Bright Title
Mini Squiggly Bits
Palm Leaves

I started off this layout by coating the Circular Leafy Frame, Shine Bright Title and Mini Squiggly Bits of chipboard in white gesso. I used the Prima watercolours in Woodlands to add colour to the frame. I added blue tones in a random and uneven manner, I really like this variation in colour which gives the frame more interest. With the Shine Bright Title and Mini Squiggly Bits of chipboard I added some gold texture paste while the gesso was still wet, this gives just a light hint of gold. To the Palm leaves I added a deep green watercolour to the raw chipboard.

"You Make Me Happy" Canvas for 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi all. Today I'm here to share a canvas I made, while this canvas may look complicated it was actually very simple to make. To make it all I needed was 6 pieces of chipboard, 9 flowers and 1 watercolour paint set.

The 2Crafty Chipboard I used was:
You Make me Happy title
6" Circle revolution frames
Amelia Flower Stem Large
Chloe's Vines
Film Strip Medium

I used the Prima watercolour set Woodlands to colour my canvas and chipboard pieces. I just added the watercolour straight onto the raw chipboard. I like how the colour soaks in unevenly to the  give a variation in colour to each piece of chipboard. 
The 6" Circle revolution frames (Only half of the medium circle was used) and the Film Strips medium were coloured with the black watercolour from the set. The You Make me Happy title, Amelia Flower Stem Large and Chloe's Vines were coloured in a teal watercolour. I wanted the title to be a little lighter so it would stand out, to do this I added some white gesso to it.

Tags For 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone today I'm stopping by to share two tags that I made for 2Crafty Chipboard.

I always make layouts but this time I decided to switch it up and make some tags instead, I've been very time poor this month so tags are much faster to make. To also save time I used only liquid pearls on my chipboard pieces again because it's just so quick and easy to do.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Card Word Circles - Sentiments
6in Circle Revolution Frames
Dotty Bits
Lacey Border Set
Flourish Adornment Set 3

Thank you Tag

On the Thank You Tag I used the chippie pieces: Card Word Circles - Sentiments, 6in Circle Revolution Frames and Dotty Bits
I used 2 of the 6in Circle Revolution Frames, a large one that I coloured with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Wedgewood Blue and I only used half of this frame. The smaller 6in Circle Revolution Frame I coloured with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Midnight Blue. The Thank You title from the Card Word Circles - Sentiments was also coloured in the same colour. Tucked under the flowers is two pieces from the Dotty Bits which are coloured with Ranger Liquid Pearls in White Opal

Here are my close ups:

 Best Wishes Tag

On the Best Wishes Tag I used the chippie pieces Card Word Circles - Sentiments, Lacey Border Set and Flourish Adornment Set 3. 
I cut the Lacey Border Set into 2 pieces and coloured them with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Wisteria Purple. The Flourish Adornment piece was coloured with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Neptune and I also cut this piece in half. Half was placed at the top of the tag and the other half at the bottom of the tag. The  Best Wishes Title from the Card Word Circles - Sentiments pack was coloured with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Raspberry Pink.

Beauty Layout for 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi everyone. Today I have a layout for 2Crafty Chipboard to share with you. 
Sometimes I love to make layouts with mixed media backgrounds and get my paints and pastes out, then other days I like to make clean layouts. This is one of my clean layouts with just a plain background, someday's it's nice to make something simple.

The 2Crafty Chipboard Used:

 Beauty Script Title
Avery Frame
Lattice Leaf Set
Ornate Gateway

Close Ups:

Along with my plain background I went simple on colouring my chipboard too. I only used Liquid Pearls to add the colour. This is a really easy and mess free way to make chipboard look amazing.

On the Avery Frame and Lattice Leaf Set I used Ranger Liquid Pearls in Avocado.
I used Ranger Liquid Pearls in White Opal on the Beauty Script Title and on the Ornate Gateway I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in Raspberry Pink.

I embellished the page with flowers and that was it :)

Escape Layout for 2Crafty

Hi everyone, today is my day to share my latest layout for 2Crafty chipboard. I have a soft and floral layout to show you, I love the light pink and purple tones with just a hint of blue.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Anna's Flourish
Handdrawn Flowers
6" Messy Square Frames
Mini Travel Word Set 2

I love these Handdrawn flowers!! They are so delicate and pretty. To colour them I first coated them with white gesso before adding a pale pink and purple watercolours to the flowers and a very light green watercolour to the leaves.

I placed the Anna's Flourish along the left side of my photo. I treated this piece the same as the Handdrawn flowers and coloured it with a pale pink watercolour.
I used the smallest Messy Square frame on this layout, I coloured it a darker purple and cut it in half to place on the right side and bottom of my photo. 
I used the word 'Escape' from the Mini Travel Word set 2 and just left this white from the gesso.
