This month has been a bit of a rough one and I fear that I have fallen behind on my blog posts! We’ve had a few 4-day weeks (with 2 more to come) and thus we have been away a lot. Not only that, but we had an attempted burglary at my home, which meant that I needed to be stuck here so that contractors could come out do some repair work. AAAAND then my desktop computer broke… It never rains in this house – it POURS!
Anyway, I wanted to share the 2 projects that I created for 2 Crafty Chipboard, with you. Here they are:
I just loved working with these beautiful chippie pieces – please head over to the 2C blog to see more – here is the link.
Here is the link for this one. It seems as if most scrappers are a little fearful of or reluctant to work with purple – it’s such a pity because I really think it works so well. And how gorgeous is that 2C decorative rod???
Thanks for stopping by – please head to both blog entries to view a few close ups and also to find out which chippies I used and how to get your hands on them!
I flipped the sketch once, anti-clockwise. I added two butterflies and I popped my journaling along the bottom right of my layout. The chippies that I have used on this layout are all from 2Crafty
Seriously… my child simply CANNOT resist having her face painted! I love this natural photograph of her.
Who knew it was possible to be completely in love with a chippie… these gorgeous geometric arrows from 2Crafty really REALLY just do it for me!
I inked them with a coral and then added some clear embossing powder – I overheated them to give the emboss some texture and I love how it also darkened the chippie to a rust. My title chippies were treated with white and gold UTEE.
My next project is for Let’s Get Sketchy, featuring another fab sketch by Brenshevia.
Here is what I did with this sketch this month:
I opted to create an inked background star shape instead of using paper – and I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. I wanted to stick to colours that blend well with my photograph, so I stuck to ‘beach’ type colours. The gorgeous chippies that I have used on this layout are all from 2Crafty.
I stuck to the Star theme per the sketch and used this frame from 2Crafty and then I also added on a few star fish. My chippie has been sprayed with gold and then I added some Glossy Accents to just the stars. I misted my title with blue and added a coat of Glossy Accents.
I loved working on this month’s challenge at Mix It Up – Anything Goes plus the option of using Black and White with one other colour.
It has to be said that yellow is not one of my favourite colours – especially when I am scrapbooking. But I REALLY loved this photograph of my daughter and I REALLY wanted to emphasise the yellow skirt that she is wearing…
I fussy cut a few black and white flowers and all those beautiful chippies on my layout are from 2Crafty. I am particularly enamoured with that Abstract Frame!
I used yellow embossing powder for my title chippies; and then for the fronts, I also used the same yellow embossing powder, but then I also sprinkled over a few pieces of black UTEE. For the frame, I coloured it in using a yellow fine tipped pen and a black Sharpie. Then I coated it with Glossy Accents.
Would you look at how divine Case File 279 is!!! I just loved working with this one!
I worked with red, yellow, white, pink and charcoal. I was inspired by the dots and stripes, as well as the cursive font. I also loved the white space element of this image, so I decided to work along those lines too. The beautiful chippie pieces that I have used on my layout are all from 2Crafty.
I have started using some older pictures of my daughter because I have so many of them laying in a box! I love love LOVE how the ray of sunshine just caught her on her cheek in this photo… and I love love LOVE how she just LOOKS like a ray of sunshine!!
My chippie leaves have been treated with white UTEE. That delectable frame has been inked with a metallic charcoal and then given a coat of Glossy Accents and my title has been misted with bright yellow and also coated with Glossy Accents.
From the moment I laid eyes on this beautiful image, I knew that I wanted to try my best to recreate it. I popped my photo in the centre and then I fussy cut a large selection of flowers from really old paper. All the chippies that I have used on this layout, is from 2Crafty.
I stuck to the colour scheme of the inspiration image as best I could. I inked the two vine chippies in teal to copy those in the inspiration image; and the instead of adding a bicycle, I cut one circular chippie in half and adhere them on either side of my photograph so that they sort of resembled the two wheels of a bicycle.
I misted my title with red and then lightly splattered on some gold mist before coating with Glossy Accents.
