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.


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. 

Papers and flowers from the Prima Love Story Collection. 

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

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
