2 Crafty Chipboard - 'Your smile is like SUNSHINE'

'Your Smile Is like SUNSHINE'

Hello there! I hope this finds you well
Today I am with you sharing my newest layout I have created
and I have included some gorgeous 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces...

2 Crafty Chipboard used: 
Mistletoe vine
Your Smile is like SUNSHINE (newly released)

The papers I have used are from the gorgeous 
Studio 73 - Bloomin shabby Chic & Sweet Child of mine

Let's start off with this 12" Mistletoe vine, which I have just simply inked 
with a lovely green which looks fabulous sitting throughout fussy cutting..

Next up is of course I have added the 2018 year 
This has been given two coats of gesso

AND lastly for my title which is from the newly released 
I started by inking it all with pastel pink, but I wasn't Lovin it and 

wanted to do something a little more, so I colored the word smile
using the Tim Holtz - Seedless Preserve Crayon and finishing it
with dabbing a little gesso on the lower part of the word...

I am super happy with my layout & I hope I have inspired you in some way...
Thanks for stopping by
Until next time

2 Crafty Chipboard - 'Happiness overload' layout

Hello there!
Today I have another layout to share, featuring a photo of me & the Hubstar
 and a few fabulous  2 Crafty pieces...

2 Crafty Chipboard used:
Industrial light bulbs
Frame Lace heart 
Mini Title stick set 5

Let's start with these awesome Industrial light bulbs, which I have to say
I am obsessed with & were my main inspiration for this layout....  

Teamed it up with some Studio 73 papers, the Steampunk Fantasy papers 
that had similar industrial bulbs, which were perfect

I started by applying a very light coat of gesso to the tops of the bulbs 
making sure not to cover up any of the fabulous engraved details... 
Then I finish them off by applying another coat to just the bulbs part...

Next up I have used the smaller  Frame Lace heart from the set 
and simply inked using Tim Holtz Distress ink - Pumice stone
which is a similar color to the raw chipboard...

Then we have my title 'Happiness overload' from the Mini Title stick set 5
I applied a very light coat of gesso to the mini title stick, 
Again making sure not to cover up any of the engraved wording...

Lastly! I have added the year 2023
I gave it a coat of gesso then finished it with inking it with a lovely dusty pink...

I hope I have you are inspired in some way today
Thanks for stopping by
