2 Crafty Chipboard - 'Explore' layout

  Hi everyone & the warmest of welcomes to you all!
Today sharing another bit of 2 Crafty inspiration
This masculine/grungy layout...

2 Crafty Chipboard used: 
6" Zipper frame
Aztec Arrows set 1
(Explore)Mini Word set 4
Mini Border 1

With the chipboard pieces, I've used
 I have kept it relatively simple,
 either inked with black OR a nice thick coat of gesso...

Dabbing the gesso with a sponge to the 
 6" Zipper frame, (Explore)Mini Word set 4 & Mini Border 1
to give these pieces a real nice textured finish...

Once I inked the Aztec Arrows with the black
I cut one of the arrows in half, then glued them onto my paper layers..
Hope you are inspired in some way today!!
Until next time

2 Crafty Chipboard - Perfection, Angelic, Gorgeous layout

 Hello & welcome to my blog..
Today I share another 2 Crafty Chipboard inspiration..
This vintage style girly layout & a few 2 Crafty pieces...

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Mini Word set 2
Mini frame set 9
Fine Month words
Mini Decorative Frame Set 7
Leafy Twig Branches
Single Winter Tree

I started off with my background I first added some stamping
 then applied two coats of gesso to the frames from Mini frame set 9
 & Mini Decorative Frame Set 7 and placed them to the page.

Next added the paper layered photo & all the flower clusters,
then applied a thick coat of gesso to Leafy Twig Branches, 
Cut this branch into smaller pieces & place it throughout the flowers... 

Repeated the process with the Single Winter Tree by inking the tree,
then cutting off the branches & layering these pieces with the flower & existing branch clusters.

I also inked the Mini words from  Mini Word set 2 with the brown same color.

And a layout of mine wouldn't be complete without adding the month & year!
Finishing off my layout nicely...

Until Next Time  x
