March DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard

Thought I'd best stop by & share my March DT work for 2 Crafty Chipboard!!

First up I created this Canvas
I just l.o.v.e how it has turned out & is now hanging up in my scrapbook room!

'Decide to'

 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I have used on 'Decide to' Canvas...

With my Canvas I wanted to frame this fabulous inspiring quote & thought the very funky 'Art deco' frame would work perfectly....I didn't want to loss the detail on the frame so I gave it just light coat of gesso & finished it of with some turquoise color...... 

This 6' clock face frame has a coat of gesso & it ended up also getting some black splatters... 

  I cut a 12x12 Circular board piece into smaller pieces & inked with black ink!

Also I gave both ATC - Design elements & Checkerboard clumps a coat of gesso,then inked the ATC - Design elements with purple ink...  
I then inked some Checkerboard clumps pieces pink, teal & left some white.....

With this 'Graceful butterly' I gave it a couple of coats of gesso, then sprayed it with some pink mist....

For my second project is this layout....

'Go See Do Explore'

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I have used on this layout......

I didn't want to over power my photo & have used a couple of the 'Asst arrows' & the words Go See Do Explore from the 'Mini Travel words set 1' I left these pieces raw... I think it worked perfectly! 

I"m a REALLY BIG FAN of using negative/leftover pieces. Here  peaking out the  sides is a negative/leftover piece from the Interlocking grid panel... I gave it a good 
coat of gesso & then added splatters of black & teal then.....  If your like me & love to have layers & dimension in your layouts I think its a great way to used up these pieces....  :)

Also! I gave a couple of  6' Circle revolution frames a coat of gesso....

Added black ink to some Mini & Medium sized Steampunk gears...

Here the 'Asst Arrows' have good coat of gesso.... Most pieces have ended up getting some splatters of black & teal, which is a nice finishing touch I think.....

& lastly created this layout as a 2 Crafty Chipboard guest detective over at CSI. (Colors, Stories,
(Inspiration Blog) 

Case File No 195!

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I used...

Thanks for stopping by & have a great week! :)

2 Design team layouts for 2 Crafty Chipboard

I'm sure most of you have already seen via facebook..
 but I thought I best share here as well...

 I have 2 layouts to share that are part of February design team layouts for 2 Crafty Chipboard
 first up is layout one.

These are the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I've used on this page...  

I gave this "Cousins"word a couple of coats of gesso, then cut & inked with black a heart from a "Heart clumps" & added that heart to where the dot for the i was.....
I also cut 2 more smaller clusters of hearts from the "Heart Clumps" & inked them in black....

I cut some "Sequins negative bits" into smaller pieces, gave them a coat of gesso & once dried I thought it would look cool to ink them a few different colors & added them randomly onto my layout....
I have few Tiny hearts from the "ATC - Tiny Hearts & Stars" some have a coat
 of gesso & the others I've inked black...
 For the"Lattice Leaves" I started off by adding a coat of gesso & finished it with
 just a light inking with a teal ink....
 I didn't want it to over power the photo when using the "Lace heart frame" so I just 
gave it just one coat of gesso...


For my 2nd layout!

'Truly Madly Deeply'
These are the 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces I've used on this page... 
I cut into smaller strips the  "Fine Heart border"& inked black... 
Lightly coated this "Tattered Heart" & finished off with randomly inking it with some teal ink....
Like in my first layout I have added Tiny hearts from "ATC - Tiny Hearts & Stars" this time gave them a coat of 13@rts gold ink......

Adding  a just a single coat of gesso to these leafy stems from the "Foilage set 1"

Again I started with giving the "Truly Madly Deeply" a couple of coats of gesso, I wanted to make the title to stand O.U.T a little more so inked the hearts pink & teal... 

To finalize this layout, I gave it all a good splatter with black mist which ended up getting most
 of the chipboard pieces & finished off this page off very nicely....  :)
