Moment (2Crafty Chipboard)

Hi, my crafty friends,

For my second 2Crafty Chipboard layout this month, I went a bit wild. Lets take a look at it.

Moment


I wanted this layout to be grunge and rusty, to go with the face of my little man on the picture. He looks so grumpy!


I created a mixed media background using some black modeling paste through a stencil and some pigments to give the impression of rust that ran through the page. Then, I cut the Square Collage Panel into pieces that I adhered on both sides of the layout.


To make it more masculin, I added the Steampunk Gear Medium pieces on the left side. All my chipboards then were covered with rust paste. I can't tell you enough how I love the result! It's so... rusty! :)


A few flowers, some metal pieces and a fabric heart to embellish everything and my layout was pretty much done! All that there was missing was a title.


I choose the Moment Loopy Font piece, which I covered with black gesso.

I hope my layouts inspired you. Have a nice day!

Love You (2Crafty)

Dear crafty friends,

I'm here today to share my first layout for 2Crafty this month. Lets take a look.


Love You



I created a mixed media background using mists, modeling paste and stamps. I kept it pretty soft, as I wanted my chipboard pieces to stand out. My main piece is the Ariel's Spray chipboard, which I placed along my picture. I really like the straight line on that piece: it goes so well against a photo! I embossed the Ariel's Spray with a blue embossing powder. 



I then scattered some Lattice Leaves here and there, following the design of the main chipboard piece. Those leaves, I embossed with a metallic green embossing powder. 



I really love how those leaves complement the design of the Ariel's Spray.




My title piece, the Love You title, is embossed with the same metallic green embossing powder.

Love You

Thanks for stoping by today. Come back in a few days as I will share my second layout for 2Crafty.

Follow your Heart (Shimmerz Paints)

Hello crafty friends,

I'm here today to share yet another layout I made for Shimmerz Paints.


I was inspired by the colors from the paper.


I used Salt of the Earth Paste-Eez through a stencil. I love the texture I got.


As far as color goes, I started with Deep Blue Sea Vibez. When it was dry, I used some Egg Noggin' Vibez. It was pretty, but I thought it needed more contrast, so I added Tuscan Sun Spritz. Finally, to add a little more depth, I used Ride the Tide Creameez. 


My chipboards are from 2Crafty Chipboards.

Together (Words & Paintery)

Hi there,

It's the middle of the month already. It means it's time for a new challenge over at Words & Paintery. Let's take a look at my layout.


I must admit I was hesitant at first when I saw the board. I'm having a really hard time with pastel colors lately. But in the end, I love the result I got.



I used this beautiful Frame Celia's Flourish from 2Crafty Chipboard as the main focus on my layout. I paired it with the Tahnya's 11'' Border. I embossed both pieces with lilac embossing powder.


I used flowers from Prima, Kaiser Craft, Blue Fern Studios and Wild Orchid Craft to embellish my layout.


The title is from the Word Circle Set 2, also from 2Crafty Chipboard. I embossed it with an aqua embossing powder.

I really hope you give this combo a try. You have until April 14th to play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Cherish (7Dots Studio Challenge)

Hi dear crafty friends,

I'm here today to share with you a layout I made for the 7Dots Studio challenge, which is called «Love is un the Air».


I chose to use papers and tags from the Cotton Candy Dreams collection. I can't get enough of this gorgeous collection. The colors are so pretty.


I used some beautiful chipboards from 2 Crafty chipboards.


To add interest to my background, I used various stamps. The words stamps are from 7Dots (Thoughts Keeper).


I also used word stickers and die cut elements from Cotton Candy Dreams.


Thanks for stopping by today.

A Moment to Treasure (Shimmerz Paints)

Hi there,

I'm here today to share a layout I made for Shimmerz Paints.

A Moment to Treasure


I started out with this pale paper. I wanted a soft feel to go with this picture of my daughter. To build my background, I used mostly Egg Noggin' Vibez, Tuscan Sun Spritz and Bamboo Leaf Spritz. I also added touches of Evergreen Shimmerz.


I love the warm yellow of the Tuscan Sun Spritz against the pale green of the Bamboo Leaf Spritz.


To add some texture, I used The Cream Team Paste-Eez through a stencil. I thought it matches the warmth of the Tuscan Sun Spritz.


To paint my chipboard, I used first a coat of white gesso and to add color, I painted some Bamboo Leaf Spritz and touches of Evergreen Shimmerz.
