2 Crafty Chipboard '6TEEN' layout

Hi There! hope you are having a lovely weekend...
Today I share with you this layout as part of my Feburary DT work for 2Crafty Chipboard...
A masculine, grungy layout featuring my boy.....
Using a few fabulous 2Crafty chipboard pieces!!!

Today (from fine word set 3)
Assorted Arrows
Steampunk Collage
6 from Large number set)
Scrabble tiles
Chain length

I wanted the Chain length to been seen & not get lost....  What better way than inking the chain with black, I then cut into 3 smaller lengths and placed on my page.....

I have few Assorted Arrows which have been treated with a couple of coats with gesso...
 I throught it would be a nice contrast against the black....

also! inking with black is the fine word Today (from fine word set 3) looking great sitting to the left side of my photo...

The Steampunk Collage, Firstly gave it couple of coats of gessoonce dried adhering it to the right side of the photo, a little just sitting underneath my photo... I then inked the number 6 with black and adhering it onto the Steampunk Collage using some foam tape for the added dimension...

To finish off my layout and inspired by the colours that I added to my background I throught it would bring my layout together nicely.... I treated both the scrabble tiles & the 2018 with a coat of gesso, then adding some colour to the these pieces.... 

Thankyou for stopping by!!
 I hope I have motivated YOU in some way when creating your next masculine layout and 2 Crafty having such a GREAT range of chipboard pieces to do just that!!

2 Crafty Chipboard - 'Treasure the little things' layout

'Treasure the little things'

Hello everyone!
I'm back to share my first bit of 2 Crafty Chipboard Feburary inpsiration...
With Vanessa generosity and been one of the February sponsors for CSI Color, Stories, Inpsiration Challenges....   
This means the 2 Crafty design chics have been asked to be guest detectives!
Which is always FUN...  I share with you my layout for Case #272

2 Crafty Chipboard used: 
Leafy Frame
 Winter leaves 
Treasure the little things title
A SUPER CUTE bugs from funky bugs pack!

How I solved the Case:
Scene and scheme: inspired by all of the colors ie: Blueish gray,White, Khaki green, Brick red & the cream yellow
Testimony: Inspired by the Word ‘Cozy’
Evidence: leaves, mist/splatters,Woodland Creatures I went with a bug.

I started with given the 'Treasure the litte things' Title & Winter leaves chipboard pieces a coat of gesso, then once dried inked with a Grey then over the top of the grey, inked with pale blue to acheive that bluish gray.... Adding just a little more of the pale blue on the title!!!!

I wanted this little C.U.T.I.E funky bug to be noticed, sitting on my page... SO i decided to keep it simple & give it coat of gesso... 

The Leafy Frame I started with inking it green, then I cut the frame at the top right & bottom left before adhering it down.... I then sneakly hid the cut frame with adding some flowers,leave clusters... 

Thanks for stopping by!

Anna's Craft Cupboard Prima Midnight Garden - 'Wonder' layout

Hello Crafters! Rach with you......
 Sharing my first page for the month over at Anna's Craft Cupboard using the gorgeous Prima Midnight Garden Collection.....
This layout featuring my gorgeous girl!


I Started with the Midnight Garden ‘Feather Collector’ paper as my base piece, next created a bit more interest to my background using the fern leaves stencil with some Prima 'Old Sliver' Icing paste & the stamps from the  Prima – Midnight Garden Stencil & stamp pack and once all was dried I did a little sanding just to ruff up and add some white into my background!!!

Next a couple of paper layers underneath my photo using ‘More Roses please’ paper & the4x6 vellum sheet from the Prima Dark Romance #637866 pack..  Also fussy cutting a couple of the fern like leaves from Midnight Garden ‘Rose Receipts’

Prima always has a great range of flowers with their collections I have gone flower mad! using the cream flower & a couple of the leaves from  Garden Blooms #637941  and teal, cream flowers and the vellum feathers from Dark Romance #637866 

Also! adding few of the pieces from the Prima – Midnight Garden Ephemera II , I felt that the ephemera pieces has a lot of excess white so I did cut away some of this white.....

Finishing off my page with some adding some  Prima – Cooper Micro beads....
Thanks for stopping by! will be back soon with more till then.....  Happy Crafting Peeps....
