My 2Crafty Chipboard layouts for October


Hi 2 Crafty fans today I am here to share with you a couple of layouts that I created using the fabulous 2 Crafty products.
The girls in my family are just as adventurous as the boys, this fun photo was taken just before they took to the tracks in Go-Karts.
2Crafty always have the perfect chippie for your pages, here I used the "Adventure" piece along with a mixture of words from the "Mini Travel Word sets 1 & 2". I inked them with black ink and gave them a coat of clear embossing powder for a glossy finish.
I also used lots of the "waste parts" from the various pieces, for instance the zig zag border pieces were from the "Harlequin Clumps". They looked really good rubbed over with a little Viva Décor Inka Gold (although in the silver colour variation).
I used a mixture of inks and paints on the "Harlequin Clumps" to give them an old distressed look. The tiny triangles are the negative parts from a border set that I didn't actually use on the page, I layered the explore word from the "Mini Word Set 1" over the top of the background piece and added some stamping to my background.
The "Fast Forward Arrow" is a great set to have in your collection as you can use both the positive and the negative pieces. I added more silver to my arrow and glued an enamel dot in the centre. 2Crafty have a great range of frames and one of my favourites is the "Chained Circles" that I used to frame my photo.
These are the 2Crafty Chipboard pieces used on this page.

The advantage of a Selfie taking family is that you get lots of neat photos to scrap, my Daughter and her Fiancé had fun taking these on s trip to the seaside earlier this year.

I love the "Bamboo Palm Tree" set but was struggling to think what project to use it on, twinned with a "Flamingo" it makes the perfect summer embellishment for my page. I used twinkling h2o paints to colour my Bamboo.

 I didn't want the flamingos legs and body the same colour so I masked off the legs with a post it note and used an orange glitter embossing powder for his body.
Once again I used the "Fast Forward Arrows Set", but this time the circles with the laser cut arrow shapes. I first painted them with gesso and then applied seafoam embossing powder, what the picture doesn't show properly is the slightly bumpy texture that this powder creates.

I also used an arrow at the top of my page but this one was taken from the "Assorted Arrows" set, I simply inked it with black ink and went round the edges with a white pen, I applied the same technique to the "Fun Times" title chipboard piece. I finished off the top section with some tiny hearts taken from the "ATC Hearts & Stars" set.
These are the 2Crafty Chipboard pieces used on this page.
