Novemeber inspiration by Lindy Gillespie



'Sweet'

Hello 2 Crafty friends, thanks for calling by the blog.
Today I have three layouts to share with you.
With lots of 2 Crafty chipboard featured on them.



    
On the 'Avery Vine'
I simply cut in half and used on both sides
as layers
Just sealed it first with gesso then just dabbed a little 
brown versa mark ink

On the 'Summer Leaf'
I did the same treatment 
as above to tone in with 
the softness of the layout.





                                                              On the 'Round Ornate Frame' 
                                                      I used it a s a layers under the photo
                                                              and dabbed a light colour,
                                                       also on under the layers is the 'Ruler' 
                                                           which i inked dark brown ink.



                                                  'A Moment Capture'




                                                       On this layout I went with  white and grey
                                                           so the treatment again is quite simple
                                                       and just blend in with the with the design
                                                         
                                                                          A moment Captured
                                                                               Summer Leaf
                                                                                Heidi's Vine
                                                                              Key Set Mini 
                                                                         Tiny Victorian Frame
                                                                           Atc Bracket Frames



                                                  On this photo you can see the title
                                                            'A Moment Captured' 
                                                    which i sealed once again with gesso
                                                       and inked the edges with black,
                                                       On the 'Victorian Frame'
under the title I stamp with a script 
stamp in black ink 




                                                       You can see the' Bracket Frame'
                                                               and the 'Heidi Frame'
                                                             after I primed the chippies
                                                   &  then simply dabbed a little black ink
                                               Also I did the same treatment on the' key'




'LOVE'



                                                     In October 2 Crafty were the sponsors
                                                                     for the challenge blog
                                                                                SATW
                                                   I used lots of 2 Crafty chippies on the layout
                                                                     
                                                                        Doilies 
                                                                 Tahnya's Border
                                                                  Parisian Border
                                                                       Circles
                 
                                                     I first painted with white distress paint
                                                            then painted a little of Shimmerz
                                                                        in Ballet Pink.
                                                        On the circle I just left it natural.







I hope I have inspired you to use some fabulous
2 Crafty chipboard on your next layout too.
