2 Crafty Chipboard - 'Tis the season layout

 Hello there!  
Today I have another 2 Crafty Chipboard  -Christmas-themed layout to share
 and hopefully, inspire you in some way...

2 Crafty Chipboard used: 
2020 Christmas tree
ATC - Tiny hearts & stars
Xmas lights border
Oriental Alphabet
Scrabble tiles

Let's start with this fabulous 2020 Christmas tree 
where I have kept it quite simple, inking it with 
this lovely green, which looks great might I add...

Next up is the Xmas lights border..
I started by giving this a thick coat of gesso, then colored the lightbulbs with a nice fiery red.... 
I just love how this has turned out....

Then we have those Tiny Stars, I coloured  these with a burnt yellow color
and scattered them throughout my page...

Lastly, for my title....
2 Crafty has some GREAT Christmas titles, but I wanted to do something a little different 
and  it just so happens I was an S short  in the Scrabble tiles, therefore I used an S from 
Oriental Alphabet, Colouring the S with the same color as the stars and the Scrabble tiles
I have been given a light coat of gesso...

That's it from me for this year..
I would like to thank all of you for all your support in 2022...
I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and
 that 2023 brings you lots of joy....

Steampunk Gears Small

Hello There!
Thanks for coming by...
Today I share with you my newest layout I have created for 2 Crafty Chipboard

'Simple Moments'

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
ATC - Title Stick set 1
12" Parisian board
6" Parisian board mini
Foilage set 9

As usual for me, I have not done a lot of treatment to the chipboard I've used
but still, each piece still makes a statement on the page..

Starting with the 2021 where I've inked it with a similar color to
 the chipboard using Ranger - Distress Oxide - Frayed burlap
And with the Stick Title 'Simple Moments' Ranger - Distress Oxide - Peacock Feathers...

Next is the gorgeous Foilage from Set 9 & using the same colors 
first inking with Frayed burlap, then randomly inking with the Peacock Feathers
and then cutting into smaller pieces & gluing down throughout fussy cutting 
And don't it LOOK  AWESOME...

Lastly! But certainly not least is the Parisian boards, one in 6" & the other in 12" 
And I have left the raw.and glued to either side of the edge of my page.
