Hi there,

I'm here today to show you my latest 2Crafty Chipboard layout.

I started by randomly applying a light coat of mint wax over the Moroccan panel.
Once dried, I played with two tones of green Gelatos to create a verdigris look
 and then added a vintage gold coat of wax on top of it to replicate an antique finish.

I used a green-gold embossing powder over the title.

I dry brushed white gesso over the viney circle frame and a
few touches of white gold wax here and there.

I painted the lock green using Gelatos and highlighted it with gold wax and white gesso.
I used the following products:
Frame Viney Circles
This Boy
Keyholes and Locks
Moroccan Panel

In my part of the world, spring is just around the corner. And after a rough winter, I am definitely ready for warmer weathers, longer days and outdoor activities.
This layout is all about enjoying these outdoor activities that we are so happy
to practice again when spring finally arrives. Sometimes simple things are the best.

I started my layout by tearing off several pieces of paper and
placing them on top of each other using cardboard to create dimension.

I then placed some pieces of Fencing wire panel under some pieces of paper
and applied white gesso using a dry brush.

After applying a layer of white gesso onto the Picket Fence piece, I added a layer
of white crackling paste. When it was dry, I dried brush brown ink over it.

Fine and fancy butterflies were dry brushed using white gesso.
Follow your heart title was embossed twice. First in white and then in rose gold.

Until next time, I hope that my layout inspires you to create layout
using picture of your favorite outdoor activities.

Hi 2crafty fans,
I'm here today to show you my latest creation using beautiful 2Crafty chipboards.
This time I went with warm tones for my background and light colors for my chippies.
With two boys, I don't use pink often. But when I do, I like to combine it with yellow.
The final result is always super interesting!

I wanted a short and discreet title. For the occasion, I chose a word from the Fine Word set 3.
I cut both ending swirls and embossed it with a bronze powder.

After applying white gesso as a basecoat to Ava's Frame, I embossed it with a light cream powder.
Then, I used gold and bronze waxes to add contrast and dried brushed white gesso here and there as a final touch

After cutting one piece of the Leafy Shrub set 1 in two and placing it on both sides of my picture, I used the same coloring technique as for Ava's frame.

The keyhole and Addy's butterflies were covered with antique gold embossing powder
and a touch of white gesso.

Keyholes and locks

See you soon with another creative project.

2Crafty Chipboard CSI case 272

Hello 2Crafty fans!

This month, 2Crafty is guest designing on the CSI Colors Stories Inspiration blog. 

Here is my layout for case 272.

As I wanted a winter theme, I used a monochromatic color scheme except for a few touches of burgundy, moss green and light denim.

As always, I started by applying white gesso on all my chippies.
This way, the embossing powders colors applied on top are vibrant.

I used an olive embossing powder to cover 4" mandala no.1.
One layer is enough of cover it up nicely.

Amelia Flowers stems were embossed with a light moss green powder.
Their silver reflection compliments the winter accent of my layout.

Finally, the Cherish title, part of Fine Word set 1, was embossed with a sparkling vanilla powder,
one of my all time favorite embossing powder!

Until next time, I wish you a very happy scrappy time.

Once upon a dream pour 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi! I'm here today to share another
project with fantastic 2Crafty chipboards.

This time I was inspired by a spring theme and created an almost
monochromatic layout using earthy tones.

I started by applying white gesso on my title.
I then used an avocado green Lindy's Magicals to color it.

Once dry, I embossed it with a clear shiny powder over which I dried brushed white gesso.

I basecoated the groovy flowers and keyhole with vintage gold wax and
then applied brown Gelatos over them to get a vibrant contrast.

I used gold/green embossing powder on the leafy twig branches and
then dry brushed white gesso on top of them.

Live your adventure pour 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi 2 Crafty fans! I hope the new year finds you well!
I'm here today to show you my first post for 2 Crafty Chipboard.
Where I live in Canada, January is associated with snow and cold weather.
And that is what I tried to recreate on my layout.
 I applied white gesso over all chipboard pieces as a base coat.

When the gesso was completely dry, I randomly applied blue shades
of water-soluble oil pastels over the title. I then covered most of it with white gesso.
The remaining blue shades are creating a discrete shadow effect.
I used the same process for the flourish frames but kept most of the blue shades instead
of removing it.
I also dry brushed white gesso here and there to add brightness to my layout.

I applied a coat of white pearl embossing powder over the three snowflakes.
