sharing my 2Crafty creations

  Just posting two layouts which I created for the 2crafty blog earlier this month using their fab chipboard.
You may have already seen these layouts on the 2crafty blog or one their facebook page
 but for those of you that haven't here they are. :) 

I used one of the CORNER WISPY FLOWERS, painting it with black Gesso
and then a coat of white paint. Once dry I sanded the edges so the black showed 
through just a little.

I also used the FAMILY FRAME chipboard piece.
For the 'family' part of the frame I used the same technique as the flower. 
On the actual frame I wanted to add different colours to tie in with the quote and colourful background of my layout, so to begin with I gave it a coat of Clear Rock Candy Distress Paint.
Once dry I dabbed different coloured Distress Stains over the frame. The stain seeps through the cracks in the Rock Candy down on to the chipboard creating a sort of stained glass effect.
Pretty cool technique, thanks Tim. :)

And the second layout.

I used two of these STARS, painted with yellow acrylic paint and outlined in black with a 
sharpie, I then layered them
on top of each other to create the Sun.

How cute are these RETRO TREES?
I painted them, stamped on them with texture stamps,
added some doodling and then a coat of Glossy Accents.
The random squares of chipboard around the border are the 'positives' from 
one of the BORDERS FOREVER 12x12 chipboard sheets, I never throw
anything out, you can always find some alternative use for it.

Head over to the 2crafty Blog and check out our other DT members work some seriously inspiring 
scrapbooking and chipboard designs.

Cheers and thanks so much for popping by. :)
