November Projects for 2 Crafty Chipboard......

Hello Everyone!
Stopped by to share these creations as part of my November DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard 
The 17th of November was my boy's birthday.....💖💖
So! This month I thought it would be pretty cool to create projects to about him!! 💖💖


2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used

Chain Length
Arrows Heart
Assortment Arrows
Arrow Word Set 1
Light bulbs
Square barbed wire frame
ALSO! the leftover/negative piece from the 2016

The Assortment of Arrows & Light bulbs used were inked with a gold!
Which I find makes them stand out nicely.....

The Chain length cut into smaller pieces, added a coat of gesso, then inked them blue
 which I didn't like the look of, so I added another coat of gesso & finished them off
with black ink, Which I think looks must better... 😃

The Arrow frame has a coat of gesso and that's it...
Also! the Adventure Arrow, Square barbed wire frame & Monster
  also have a coat of gesso..

Then I randomly inked with Black & blue the barbed wire frame.
Then I added a little blue & Burgundy watercolor to the Monster.... Pretty cute hey!

  Inked with blue the word 'Adventure'

Keeping with this color scheme I also created this tag & card
which I will be giving to him today...

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used

Card Words Set 2
Western Set 1
Assortment Polaroid
ATC - Tiny Hearts & Stars
Negative Sequins
Frame heart string
ALSO! the negative bit from the Chain Heart Frames

A thick layer of gesso has been added to the Birthday Wishes wordsThe bigger Star 
is inked with goldWhile the ATC - Tiny Stars have a coat of gesso, a coat of gel
medium then finished with some Raspberry Alcohol ink...
Negative Sequins have been cut into smaller pieces & inked with black ink...
The Polaroid frame has a coat of gesso & blue ink!
Finishing this card with white splatters....
I just love the grungy feel to the card, hopefully my son like it too... 😃

This tag has a more softer feel to it...
The ATC - Tiny Hearts are inked with a brown ink, while the
Party Time words, Frame heart string, Negative Sequins & Bull head all have
 a coat of gesso, some with a thicker coat than others....

I have just 💖💙💜💚 working with 2 Crafty Chipboard....

More Than Words - November Challenge

Can you believe it we are already in November....
More Than Words have revealed the November challenge!!

Word Inspiration - SPECIAL
Creative Challenge - OUR QUOTE

 The Main challenge is based on a word inspiration and a creative challenge.
The challenge is open to layouts, canvases and art journal pages only.
What does the word SPECIAL inspire you to create? You can chose to use the word somewhere on your project or simply be inspired by it. Please explain in your blog post how the word inspired you, if not already obvious.
Even though we were inspired by weddings for our creative challenge, you do not have to create a wedding-themed project. The instructions are simple - we want you to follow OUR QUOTE as inspiration and use something OLD, something NEW, something BORROWED or something BLUE on your project. 
For example, you can decide to use a brand new paper collection (NEW) or add blue paint on your background (BLUE). You can use some of those old antique buttons you've got stored away (OLD) or use a tool that you have borrowed from a friend (BORROWED). Please let us know which ones you've used. You can even challenge yourself and use all four! We will also accept projects that display the quote itself.  Easy, right?

'Special Moment'

"This layout features my boy turning 13 last year.  It goes without saying that it is a very SPECIAL memory for him and for me! The quote inspired me to incorporate something OLD and something BLUE. These photos of my boy were taken last year so I would consider them old, and I painted all the chipboard pieces except the filmstrip with a metallic blue paint."

all chipboard I've used is of course 2 Crafty Chipboard!

Be sure to stop by over the More Than Words blog to check O.U.T fellow DT creations!
Hope you are inspired to play along...
