Part 2 of November DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard

Hello everyone!
Today with you sharing this layout, as part of my November inspration for 2Crafty Chipboard using some of the fabulous 2 Crafty Chipboard...
This layout features my teenage son...

'Be Yourself'

2 Crafty pieces used: 

Deer head
Stars from ATC - Tiny heart & Stars
 6" Checkerboard piece
Be Yourself (title)
Geometric arrow
Always fine word from set 1

Since I decided to work with a darker background/base page & still wanted the chipboard 
to stand out, I thought white would be the way to go, using gesso on the 6" Checkerboard piece 

A little TIP: using my photo as a template & getting more out this 6" Checkerboard piece,
  I've cut away some of the checker and replace it using some negative chipboard... 😀
 Then I cut that piece into some smaller pieces & placing randomly onto my page....

The ATC tiny stars have a coat of gesso, then inked with Tim Holtz - Peacock feather....
The Geometric arrow I've given a couple of coats of gesso, then cut it into 3 pieces ...

Both the Always fine word and Deer head have been inked with black....

Finally the Be Yourself title, I started with giving it a coat of gesso, then inking
 with the Tim Holtz Peacock feather (teal) & black inks.....
That's it from me today! Thanks for stopping by...

2 Crafty Chipboard - '#SELFIE' layout

Hello everyone!
Today sharing my first bit of November inspiration for 2 Crafty Chipboard
 This layout featuring my gorgoeus daughter & her father (my hubby)...


2 Crafty Chipboard Used: 
#Selfie  from Mini Word Set 1
Fern set
 So Sweet mini banner  from ATC - Banner word set 1
Hearts from ATC - Hearts & Stars
Circle heart frame

I was glad I was on the ball this day and snapped this photo of a father & daugther moment
 and thought it was only fitting to use the 2 Crafty # mini word # SELFIE as the title...

I started with a coat of gesso to all chipboard pieces used,
 then inked with a few colours...

   #SELFIE with red...

I just adore the details the Anchor has and not wanting to lose any of it once the gesso dried,
using my finger I ever so lightly rubbed with a Tim Holtz - Wild Honey Distress Ink....

I did the same procedure with this ADORABLE So Sweet banner, only this
 time using Time Holtz - Spun Sugar ( Pale pink)  Distress Ink.

The Delicate Circle heart frame has been inked with a dark blue
 (Tim Holtz - Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire)

The Ferns I lightly rubbed with a Distress Oxide - Peacock feather ink.... 
And lastly the ATC  - hearts have been inked with a Color box - rose pink!

That's it from me today! 
I will be back later on in the month, till then HAPPY crafting peeps...
