My January Design Team Blog Post over at 2Crafty

 Welcome to 2014!
Happy New Year to Everyone and thanks for visiting.
Janice here today to share some projects with you.
Remember These Moments

My 1st layout features lots of gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard  pieces, combined with
 washi tape, rub-ons, gesso, inks, mist, gauze and stranded thread.

 I have framed this photo with a chipboard Polaroid Frame.
 To alter this Frame I started by adding  some Rubons on it (which don't show up in
 this photo), then I randomly added patches of Lagoon Blue ink,  then using my
 finger I smeared white paint all over it leaving some areas thicker than others to give
 a white washed look.
When dry I added a raw 2013 date.
 I think it is very important to add dates to your pages and these multi pack
 dates make it so easy.

Lots of layers....
washi tape, Rub-ons, gauze, thread, gesso, paint, mists and Assorted Chippie Arrows.

 Remember is from a multi word pack.
They are fantastic to use as a title or part of a title for your page.
Here I primed the word, let it dry, then inked it with Lagoon Blue Versa Colour ink,
 then I added a light smear of white paint.
If you want to ink your chipboard it is best to prime the pieces with gesso first, let it dry
 then ink and the ink will hold its colour and not soak into the chipboard.

 Here I have added  a few Assorted size and design Arrows
I have inked some, then randomly covered  them with gesso.
I have left a couple raw and added tiny bits of ink and gesso.

My 2nd layout.

Enjoy Today

 This layout was created using an A4 photo and I have added my embellishments on top of it.
I have used a Martha Stewart punch across the top, so the page appears as a calendar page.
 I have used some little ATC tabs across the top which have been
 painted white and attached with brads.

I Just love these little ATC Seagulls.
 We spend lots of time at the beach and see lots of seagulls, so when I saw these little 
chipboard seagulls I was super excited and knew they would adorn many of my pages.

Here I have added 3 different size seagulls using pop dots to add dimension.
They are primed with gesso, painted white, then I have added some grey ink to
 their wings and added a black spot to hi-light the eye.

2Crafty have numerous words and phrases.
These loopy font titles are just gorgeous.
has been primed with gesso and painted white. I have matted it by gluing it to a piece
 of cardstock and using a sharp craft knife to cut around the edges.
 Then I highlighted a few places with a black pen.
 Pop over to here and see the varied selection.

The little  Name Plate, has been primed with gesso and painted white and I have
 used it to add a date.

My 3rd layout.

If you are a member or follower over at CSI you may have already seen this layout.
 This is how I solved Case No. 99.
Featuring lots of the gorgeous 2Crafty chipboard  pieces.

"Her gorgeous smile radiates inner beauty"

On every layout we find ourselves needing a title, and with the varied selection of words
 2Crafty have, you can easily find a title to match your creation.

I have primed smile with gesso, then added some Ranger White Opal liquid pearl, then
 spritz it with Studio Calico Mister Hueys "Sunshine" mist. 

Chipboard is very versatile and can be cut up and added as layers to your pages.
This is a piece which I have covered with ink  and then spritzed with "sunshine" mist.

 The Fanciful Butterfly is covered the same way as the smile font.

I am sharing an extra layout this month
Quiet Time 2013

Today I also wanted to share another Case I have solved over at CSI using lots 
of Gorgeous Chippie Pieces. This is Case No. 98
You may have already seen this layout.

Primed with gesso, then coloured with different coloured Versa Coloured inks
and some clear  crackle paint.
Coated with a thick layer of Tim Holtz- peeled paint- Distress crackle paint.

 Covered with a thick layer of Tim Holtz-white- Distress crackle paint.
Once dry and cracked, I added some green-peeled paint to the bottom of the posts.
I love the effect this paint gives.
I soaked this Butterfly in water for a few hours, then carefully pulled apart the
 layers to add some dimension to the wings. I held each layer apart
with toothpicks and let it dry overnight.
I then coloured it with ink and stamped on the pattern.
was primed with gesso and inked.
I feel very lucky to be able to play with this gorgeous chipboard and add it to my layouts.
I hope I have inspired you  to have a look at all the products and to add
 some to your next project.
