October Inspiration -Two Layouts to Share
By Di Garling

Hi there 2Crafty fans, thanks for calling by the blog. Today I have two
layouts to share with you, starting of with this bright one simply titled, "YOU'.

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
You title- loopy font
Filmstrips - small
Filmstrips - large

I was given these two gorgeous pics when I was in Perth recently.
As soon as I saw them my mind started ticking over of what I was going to do  !!

For my background I have gone for clean lines, plain white background & I have
 used some Lindy's Stamp Gang "Witches Potion Purple" spray used with a stencil.

I have used three different sizes of 2Crafty "Film Strips" - tiny, small & large.
All I did was to give them a coat of black acrylic paint & when dry, I wiped them
over roughly with some Viva Inka Gold paste.

I treated the "YOU-loopy font title" in exactly the same way.
Looks effective & doesn't get any easier than this !!

All these flowers are from 49 and Market. The purple one was actually white
& I sprayed it with the purple spray to match it in.

A super easy layout that I am very pleased how it turned out.

 "Enjoy Today"

 For my second layout today I want to share this little cutie in more my normal style !!

 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Enjoy Today - title
Assorted Polaroid Frames
Skeleton Leaves
Mini Fast Forward Arrows

I just love these "Assorted Polaroid Frames" which I have painted
in blue & white acrylic paints & the charcoal ones in some
Viva Ferro metal effects paste.

The title - "Enjoy Today" was also painted in white acrylic paint. Too easy.

I just kept snipping the frames & layering them up underneath my photos.

I have also used some different arrows from the "Mini Fast Forward Arrow Pack".
These were simply painted in a couple of coats of white paint also.

My paper & flowers are from 49 and Market & as you can see I have added some of
the 2Crafty chippie "Skeleton Leaves" in & around the flowers for an added extra effect.

I painted the leaves in a coat of acrylic paint followed up by rubbing some
Distress Ink in Peeled Paint over them. It sort of gives a two toned effect.

Well thats all from me today. I will see you back her again next month
with more 2Crafty inspiration for you.

October inspiration - By Lilibleu

Hello 2Crafty fans!!

This is Lilibleu with you here today to share my October inspiration.


For this first project, I wanted to go on a trip in a fairy universe, 
very feminine with a set of colors that I like very much.

I embossed the arrow word "Forever" with purple powder.
 I like its smooth and shiny look after this embossing.

I love the "Frankie's Frames" chipboard, I find the design quite beautiful.
 I embossed it with golden powder to give a precious aspect to my page.

To reinforce the impression of lightness, I slipped the "Handdrawn Feathers"
 - embossed with purple powder - on the side of my photo.

The word "amazing" is embossed in gold to make it stand out.

2 Crafty Chipboards used:
- Handdrawn Feathers
- Mini Word Set 1
- Frankie's Frames
- Arrow word set 2

Mixed media canvas

For my second project, I chose to make a canvas in a Halloween theme.
 I liked the picture of this little girl found on Pinterest, it was this photo
 that made me want to design my project on this theme.

All the chipboards on my canvas are treated differently.
 The "Small Crazy Circle Panel" chipboard is first painted in metallic orange,
then I embossed some place on it with orange powder.
The "Autumn leaves" are painted green.

The "11 Floral Frame" chipboard is painted with black gesso. 
The title "Adore" from "Fine Word Set 1" is embossed in orange.

2 Crafty Chipboards used:
- 11 Floral Frame
- Fine Word Set 1
- Small Crazy Circle Panel 
- autumn leaves

And that's all for today!
See you back here soon with some more 2Crafty inspirations!

Tammy's October Shares

Hello lovely 2 Crafty Chipboard fans.
Today I'm sharing with you my most recent creations.
My first page is titled:

'Loving These Moments'

It's a layout that celebrates my brother and his son.
I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard on this layout:
'Loving these Moments title'
'Chicken Barbed Wire - Small'
'Steampunk Gears - Small'
'Steampunk Gears - Medium'
'Chain Circle Frames'
I cut down the 'Chicken Wire Panel - small' and smeared Finnabair's Rust Paste in
 Gold, Brown and Red randomly over it.  I just used my fingers.
I love the rust look and the texture this creates.
I then added some Silks Acrylic Glaze Paint in 'Ocean Wave'. 
I love how this blue colour matches the blue in my photo so well.

I repeated this process on the 'Steampunk Gears - Small'
and the 'Steampunk Gears - Medium'.

I just love the rusty finish, especially with that metallic blue added in!

I used some of the 'negative' part of the chipboard from the 'Chain Circle Frames'.  
I added it to the background, and painted it in black gesso for a bit of contrast.

Don't forget to look at the leftover bits from your chippy - they can be awesome!
They also make great stencils.

Can you tell I don't like to throw anything away?

 I also applied black gesso to the 'Loving these Moments title'.

  I just love the clusters and dimension that the chipboard gives my layout.

I love how many different options you have with chipboard - you can create
so many different finishes and so many different looks. 
Don't these look just like metal?

I created a video tutorial so you can see how I created this page:
I hope you enjoy the video.


My second creation is titled:

'Magic Happens'

  This layout is a fun one celebrating meeting the characters at Disneyland.

I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard:
'Magic Happens Title'
'ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars'
'Circular Panel'

I used white gesso and Dylusions Sprays to create the background. 
I went with the teals and limes that are dominant in Goofy's suit.
I painted some of the 'Stars' and some of the tiny stars from the
 'ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars' in a deep purple. 
I like how this purple contrasts against the teal and lime.

 I stamped them very randomly with some black archival ink to make them look a little more grungy.

 I painted the 'Magic Happens title' in black. 
I then went over the top of this, just on the 'Magic', with Clear Kindy Glitz. 
 I haven't used this product in years!!
It was fun to get it out and play with it again. 
I love how the clear Kindy Glitz turns this gorgeous teal colour when applied to black.

I repeated the same process with the 'Circular Panel' and poked these randomly around my photos.

I wanted this layout to be fun to complement the story about 'goofying around'
 with Goofy at Disneyland.
I think the glitter finish really adds to the fun magical vibe.

 It really is a gorgeous finish.

Well that's it from me for this month.

I will be back again very soon for some more sharing.
