My November 2Crafty Chipboard Shares

October just disappeared for me WOOSH! gone! But I'm back and I have heaps to share with you.
First up is my November 2Crafty Chipboard inspiration.

There are heaps of new chippy designs out for 2Crafty that have just recently been released. Among them are the awesome panels.
You can see them all here but the two I've used this time are the "Hessian Patch Panels" and  "Bubble Grid Panel

I've also been experimenting with lots of different ways to alter the 2Crafty Chipboard. It's been so much fun. For the first layout I painted the chippy with gesso and sprayed it with Tilt-a-wheel Teal from the Lindy's Stamp gang, Flat Fabio Spray set,  "Under the Boardwalk"  by Limor Webber Designs.

"The Best Of Friends" 

I also used the panel to spray a stencil pattern onto my background piece using the Lindy Stamp gang Sprays. It is very subtle but looks beautiful. I wanted some of the bubbles to stand out, so I removed the lid from the spray and used a small paint brush to add some further colour to selected bubbles on the chipboard grid. Then I cut it up!!! lol
"Bubble Grid Panel"
"Shrub Set 1"
"The Best of Friends"

The "Shrub Set 1" was also painted with white gesso but I wanted to create some
 texture this time so I added some clear glue with a touch of gold glitter in it and 
dipped the chipboard into some micro beads then sat the pieces aside to dry.

The title "The Best of Friends" 2Crafty chipboard piece was covered with black gesso.
 Once it had dried, I painted on some Glimmer Mist spray to add some colour and shine.

The little "2014" was also painted with the black gesso and added to the top cluster
 of "Bubble Grid Panel". We often forget very quickly the dates of when things happen
. So adding a little chippy year is a great idea. This was such a happy time for my
 sister and brother in-law as they travelled to Melbourne to give a surprise welcomed
 home to their best friend Rachel who had been on a three year stint working in London.

"Fur Baby"


2Crafty products used

"Line Words Happiness"
"ATC tiny Hearts and Stars"
"Arrows Funky"
"Alpha Set 1"
"Circular Panel"

The title for this layout was created by using the letters from the "Alpha Set 1".
 I painted them with heavy white gesso and once dry, stamped some background 
words over the top.


I had heaps of fun with this creation just experimenting with the different chipboard
 bits and bobs including a couple of the "Arrows Funky" from the set which actually 
has 13 funky designs to choose from. I can't wait to incorporate the rest into my
 projects. The squiggly yellow one, I heat embossed with Beck BT Tinby Designs Metallic Melts in Gold.

I also added a couple of the "Geotags". This set has 17 tags in total but I've only
 incorporated a couple. One I covered in glue and dipped in micro beads and the other
 I gave a base coat of gesso and painted it with shimmers spray.

I also added one of the "Line Words Happiness" because this fur baby gives these 
two so much happiness even if the fur baby doesn't appear too impressed!

My final layout is a tribute to my daughters endless selfies. Don't get me wrong, I love them. 
With out them I would have barely any recent photos to scrap. Keep the selfie alive I say!
 Never has there ever been so many photos of teenagers. I wish they had the "Selfie" in my day.
 I have very few photos of my youth.

"#Hashtag Selfie"

2Crafty products used

"Selfies Word pack"
"Polaroid Assortment Frames"
"Mini Camera's"
"Hessian Patch Panels"

The "Mini Camera's" I lightly base coated with white gesso and then added
 some Water colour paint and edged them in black.

The "Hessian Patch Panel" I also painted with water colour and layered under 
my photo as part of the stack along with the large frame from the  
"Polaroid Assorted Frames" which I covered in fine gold glitter. I also used the
 "Hessian Patch Panel" to create a stencil in the background. I used a stipple brush 
and some water colour paint. I absolutely love how these new panels from 2Crafty 
can be used as stencils as well as being added as chippies!

The title I painted black. It's the largest of the words from the "Selfie Words Pack".
 It looked just perfect propped up on the edge of the selfie!

So that's me again for 2 Crafty for another month. My goodness this year has flown!
