NOW FOR SOME INSPIRATION USING LOTS OF 2 CRAFTY CHIPBOARD......

"DREAM"


My first layout I want to share with you today is called "Dream".
This is one of the fabulous NEW titles from 2 Crafty Chipboard.
I do soooo love this NEW font.


All of my chipboard I have used on this layout were firstly
coated in Gesso, then a coat of ink or paint &  finished off with
a little dab of Stickles to add that little bit of sparkle.
Haven't used Stickles for a couple of years but I'm
starting to get re aquainted with it !!!
Although it is hard to see it in these pics. 

I have also used some little chippie  "Groovy Flowers"
These are great to add in here & there in your clustering,
 kind of like the girl equivalent to cogs.



This beautiful chippie flourish is actually a corner,
 "Helena's Corner" & I chopped it up to create my flourish
& I have also added a heart to my flower cluster
from the 2 Crafty "Funky Hearts" pack.

 I have also used one of the NEW
"Flower Spurt Chain" pieces & coloured in purple, added 
some sparkle & a flower spray over it.
The perfect piece to fill a space.


                                                       

Lots of background work, this page actually started its life
 as a piece of white cardstock.
With a little imagination, some inks, mists, stamps
& paints you can do anything !!!!

Now for my second layout
"FAMILY"


On this layout I have used yet another of the NEW release titles
from 2 Crafty, "Family". I think I am obsessed with this font !!!
All of my chippies on this layout were simply given a coat of
gesso, then inked with Distress ink & on the title I simply added
a final coat of Tim Holts Distress Crackle. Too easy.


In this pic you can see I have also used one of their
"Floral Branches", it is just like a cherry blossom. I cut
this in two so I could have a little either side of my pics.


It really is the sweetest piece.


Lastly I have used some of their 
"Chicken Wire Panel" tucked in here & there.

I hope I have inspired you to get hold of some fabulolus 
2 Crafty chipboard for your next project.

Remember to follow me on both this blog as well as my

Good luck & thanks for visiting.
