2Crafty Chipboard September inspiration

Hello peeps. I've been a little bit quiet on the blogging front recently due to my two week holiday!!! But I'm here now to share with you my September inspiration using some yummy 2Crafty Chipboard.

 It's spring here in Australia and I am so looking forward to the weather warming up!
The first of my three layouts this month is a bright and colourful creation.

"Precious Friends"

2Crafty products used
"Circular Panel"
"Friend Card Word"
"Assorted Arrows"
"Precious - Loopy Font"
"View Finder"

This was such a fun layout to create. The picture is my crazy son and his best buddy on their last day of high school (Muck Up Day). I wanted the layout to be bright and fun with a little crazy and a lot of boy about it. Not asking too much?

I started by powder/heat embossing the "Circular Panel" which I segregated to share through out the page. I used the amazing "Metallic Melts" from Tinby Designs.

I added the small "View Finder" after I'd sprayed it with colour sprays.

The title words both "Loopy Font Precious" and "Friend Card Word - Friends" I covered with black ink and then placed a layer of gloss dimensions on top and waited for it to dry. I used the same technique with the little black arrow sitting on the "View Finder" from the "Assorted Arrows" set.

My second layout is a bit cute! It's a photo of my mums puppy Molly that we bought for her. This little friend is such a cute and smart little thing. I've wanted to scrap her photo for some time now.

"This Sweet Treasure"

2Crafty products used
"Film Strip Medium"
"Friend Card Word"
"Chevron Bits"

The "Film Strips - Medium" I painted with black Gesso and backed with some old book pages. I cut it in half and placed it under my photo.

The "Chevron Bits" were treated the same way including the frame in which the chevrons are cased in. I love to use every little bit of  2Crafty Chipboard that I can.

The words in the title Sweet Treasure, came from the "Friend Word Card". I love these little word cards. You can use just one word from them or, like I've done here, you can combine two or three together to make a whole title. I painted them with white Gesso and then used watercolours to tint them slightly. I've used the "Nature Walk" paper from 7 Dots studio. I've recently purchased these (I know, a bit slow off the mark) and I LOVE them all! But the chevron one is my favourite by far.

My final layout out is my favourite of the three. It is my Sister and brother in-law. I love this photo because it shows my sister as her true nutty self!


2Crafty products used
"Circle Revolution Frames"
"ATC Hearts and Stars"
"Today - Loopy Font"

I painted the "Revolution Frame" with black Gesso and when it was dry, I ran my white ink pen roughly around it to give it a sketched look. The background piece is one of my favourite papers from Kaisercraft.

Five stars in total from the "ATC Hearts and Stars" card are included on the layout. Each one is coated in white modelling paste and left to dry, giving them a rough textured finish.

The "Today - Loopy Font" word I painted with yellow acrylic paint to tie in with the background. It starts off my quote from Dr Seuss "Today you are you, that is truer than true". There is more to that quote but I didn't want to detract from the yellow "Today - Loopy Font" and it said what I wanted it to say. I've hand written it and I'm not overly happy with the end result but overall it works and I shouldn't be so bloody fussy LOL!

So that's me for 2Crafty Chipboard for the month. I can't believe how quickly the year is going.........
