 My Design Team post from the 2Crafty blog.
 Hello Everyone!

I am honoured and very happy to be staying on this amazing team and to be
amongst these talented and creative scrappers.
Make sure you follow this page and like the 2Crafty Facebook page
 so you don't miss any of the 2Crafty creations.
Today I have 3 layouts to share, each one is created using lots of
 Vanessa's incredibly versatile 2Crafty chipboard pieces.
My 1st layout is called......
"I Just Love This Kid"

2Crafty Chipboard Pieces Used:
Polaroid Assorted Frames
Assorted Arrows
I just love this kid-title

I just Love this kid title was perfect for my layout.
Do you struggle to add a title to your layout? 2Crafty chipboard have lots
 of word phrases which makes  adding a title really easy. I painted the heart with
 'Brick" Tattered Angels Glimmermist and inked the  words with silver versa colour ink.
 I added a pop dot behind the heart, added some thread and stuck it down.

I covered these 3 Polaroid Frames with gesso, then painted them partially with
 Heidi Swapp, Black Velvet, Colour Shine. I painted some  'Brick' Glimmermist 
on each one and added some torn washi tape strips and some punched grass 
paper pieces to two of them. They are perfect to frame photos and parts of photos.

This little Bicycle was the perfect accessory for my page.
I inked it with Versa fine Black ink and added touches of Silver
 so it looks like Matthews bike.

I added two Arrows from the Assorted Arrows pack to frame my photos.
 I simply inked then with Black Ink

My 2nd layout is called....
"The Great Outdoors"

I created this layout for the current CASE FILE NO.131 at CSI

2Crafty Chipboard Pieces;
Thistle Shrub
Grass Clumps
Fencing Wire
Mini Bicycle

This is the Case File criteria that I based my layout on.

There were so many gorgeous 2Crafty chippie pieces to choose from to
 add to my outdoors layout.  I layered this stunning thistle shrub piece,
 2 grass clumps and a piece of fencing wire to the edge of my photo.
 The chippie is so versatile and cutting it up to make it go further is easy.
Each piece was coloured using Tim Holtz Distress inks, Rusty Hinge, Tea Dye 
and Gathered Twigs, and Versa Colour Inks, Topaz, Lime and Olive. Pop dots 
were used to add dimension and I added some thread  behind the grass clumps.

As kids we spent hour on bikes and rode everywhere,
 so this mini Bicycle was just ideal to add to my layout.
I coloured the bike with Tim Holtz-Rusty Hinge and the
 little basket with Versa Colour-Topaz.

A close up of the coloured and layered Grass Clumps, with the tangled threads.

The chippie is so versatile.
These pieces are off cuts  from the Thistle Shrub and the Grass Clumps.
2014 has been coloured with Tim Holts-Rusty Hinge.

And my 3rd layout is called
"Swim, Enjoy, Fun"

My boy is a little fish and loves the water. He is always the first in and the last out.

2Crafty Chipboard Pieces;
Assorted Arrows
6'x6' summertime words

This pack of circles were  pulled apart and covered with white gesso.
  Then sprayed with Tattered Angels-Glimmermist-Patina and  Frost.
 Some were coloured with jenni bowlin- Speckled Egg- Acrylic Paint.
Once dry they were all layered and stuck down to represent water bubbles.

SWIM, enjoy, fun were  used from a  summertime pack.
Each word was covered with white gesso, dried with a heat gun and 
covered with White Paint. I added the gesso and paint using a small piece of
 a home brand kitchen sponge and daubed it onto the chipboard....
I was happy with how it turned out.

The arrows from the Assorted Arrow pack were covered the same as the words
 above but I added some Patina glimmermist to these.

I hope I have inspired you in some way.
I will be back in September with my next share.

No wonder you were invited to stay on Janice; your work is fabulous. I love the polaroid frames and the title of "I just love this kid". The grass and thistles in the "great outdoors" evokes a feeling of the bush which I love. Then the circles are the perfect touch for your fish boy. Three stunning projects and thanks for the inspiration :D

Sandra said...

Lizzy Hill said...
