My first 2Crafty post :)

Hi, today is my first post for 2Crafty Chipboard, I've so happy to join this amazing team for 2018.

1 Year....

My first layout is for my son's 1st birthday late last year, I can't believe he is one already!!
He's now running everywhere and getting into all sorts of mischief. 

The 2 Crafty Chipboard I used were:
Clock Face Frames 12x12
Lattice Leaves
Year in Summary Title
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Pack

Here is how I altered the Clock Frames

First I used a stamp with versamark to stamp randomly on the chipboard. The I used Black embossing powder on the larger clock and Aged Gold embossing powder on the smaller clock

I used Distress inks to add colour, I put Tea Dye on the large clock and Hickory Smoke on the small clock. Next I added some Vintage photo Distress ink to the edges.

Here is what they looked like finished. I treated the Tiny Stars the same as the small clock, and the Title was coloured with Aged Ivory Embossing ink. 

Papers are from the Prima French Rivera Collection, Flowers and Metals are also Prima


My second layout features my friends gorgeous baby girl

The 2 Crafty Chipboard I used:
Frame Celia's Flourish
Leafy Twig Branches
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars Pack
Fine Word Set 2

I started by coating all the chipboard pieces in white gesso. I left the Title and Frame with just the gesso, The Tiny Hearts I coloured with Dusty Concord Distress ink and the Leafy Twigs with a Gelato in Pistachio. 

Papers from Maja Designs Vintage Spring and Enjoying the Outdoors Collections, Flowers from Prima and 49 & Market

I also altered a wooded frame to go with this layout. I used Deco Arts Weather Wood to add crackle to the frame. 

Also here is a layout I taught at Bella Paperie in the Weekend. All chipboard is from 2Crafty (Cogs Small and Large and Circle lace panel used) and Papers From Maja Design's Denim and Friends Collection

Thanks for stopping by today

Lemoncraft layouts for Bella Paperie

Hi all. Today I have layouts to share that I made for Bella Paperie using  2 different Collections from Lemoncraft

First up I have a soft Delicate layout using the Gossamer Blue Collection

I have used 2Crafty chipboard on my layout. The pieces used are:
Frame Celia's Flourish
Frame Tiny Kathleens
Chicken Brabed Wire Small
Mini Word Set 1

I coloured the chicken wire chippie with a little gold gelato. The other chipboard pieces I coloured with white embossing powder. My versamark pad is old and running out of ink so the embossing powder didn't stick properly. It turns out I liked the patchy embossed look so I left it that way. 

On the background I used a stencil with thick white gesso, then I added Snow cone & Cotton Candy gelatos through a different stencil. I added some lace and pearl string for texture and then some random stamping with brown archival ink. 

I finished the layout off with lots of flowers from Prima and 49 & Market

My next layout is made using the Violet Silence collection.

I fussy cut out lots of flower images from the papers to put under my photo, then I also added gesso plus Purple & pink Gelatos through a few different stencils. 

The 2Crafty Chipboard used on this layout was:
Ada's Flourishes
Mini Word Set 1
Leafy Silhouettes

I coloured the flourishes with a dark purple gelato, the leaves with white gesso and the title Treasure with a pale purple liquid pearls.

I embellished with lots of flowers and some butterflies cut from the paper collection. 

Thanks for stopping by
