February Inspiration by Bec

Hi everyone.
Today I have my February projects that I made with the gorgeous 2Crafty Chipboard to share with you. This month I made a layout and a canvas, plus I also have my layout made for the CSI case file #248.


First up is my layout, I love circles so I've used 2 different Circle frame sets on this page.

2Crafty Chipboard Products Used:
Lucy's Flourish Frame
6" Circle Revolution Frames
Hashtag Word Set 1
Leafy Twig Branches

I used the 2 smallest frames from the 6" Circle Revolution Frame Set, the larger one to frame one photo and the smallest I cut in half and placed on the edges of the layout. I coated the frames in white gesso before I coloured them with a yellow watercolor .

I also coated the Lucy's Flourish Frame in white gesso first and then I added colour using a Twinkling H20 in Plum Blossom. 

I coloured the title #Beauty and the Leafy Twig Branches with Lindy's Gang Magicals, on the title I used the colour Salt Water Taffy and on the branches I used Sea Mint Green. I cut the Branches into little pieces and tucked in under my flowers.

Papers, flowers and embellishments from the Prima Lavender collection.

Timeless Canvas

Next up is a soft and delicate canvas. The Brickwork panel was perfect for this canvas and it goes so well paired with lots of flowers.

2Crafty Chipboard Products Used:
Brick Panel
Gemma's Corners
Fine Word Set 2
Indian Feathers

I wanted to colour the Brickwork panel to match the colour of the shutters, I used the Lindy's Gang embossing powder in Golden Angel Wings on the raw chipboard to give it a shine. Then I randomly added some white gesso on top to tone down the colour and give a more shabby look. 

For the title from the Fine Word Set 2 and the Gemma's Corner pieces I primed with white gesso before I coloured them with Prima Aryclic paint in Vintage Rose.

I used the Indian Feathers more as leaves on this canvas, they are such versitle pieces. I primed them with white gesso before adding a light teal embossing powder. The Indian feathers have very fine detail lines on them so only apply a very light coat of gesso with a sponge so the lines don't get covered up. 

Papers and flowers from the Prima Love Story Collection. 

Life Documented

My final layout today is made for the latest CSI case file #248 which 2Crafty is sponsoring this month.

2Crafty Chipboard Products Used:

Life Documented
6" Circle Revolution Frames
Sharon's Butterflies
Circle Lace Panel
Swaying Branches

And the CSI Case file #248

On this layout I left the background plain as I used gorgeous foil paper that didn't need anything extra added. All the chipboard pieces were coloured with Gelatos. Gelatos are an amazing and easy way to alter chipboard, I always coat the chipboard pieces in white gesso first so the colours of the Gelatos stand out more. 

I used the largest frame from the 6" Circle Revolution Frames pack and coloured this with the Silver Ice Gelato.  I had left over bits from the Circle Lace Panel that I coloured in a Chocolate Gelato

The Swaying Branches were coloured in the Pistashio Gelato, 
The Life Documented title was mainly left with the white gesso but I added a little Bubble Gum Gelato to the edges. The Sharon's Butterflies were left white in the centers and the wings were coloured with the Bubble Gum and Guava Gelatos

Papers from the Prima Heaven Sent 2 Collection

February Inspiration with Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty fans,

It is my turn to share my February layouts. Playing with the 2crafty chipboards is 
always a pleasure.
 I hope you'll like my layouts as much as I had fun to making them!
"Hello Beautiful"
Hello Beautiful is a layout made with the school photo of my daughter.

In the "Hello Beautiful" layout, I embossed the "Feather" chipboard
 with a copper embossing enamel.

 The "Pointed Doily Frame", the "Decorative Disc Set #1" and the "Winter Twig Branches"
are inked and embossed with different colors of embossing ink. 

For the title, I used  aged white embossing enamel.

Hello Beautiful
Decorative Disc Set 1

Pointed Doily Frame
Winter Twit Branches


For my "Perfection" layout, I decided to use a black background 
that I found gave it gave a boyish look.

For this layout, I used the "Diamond Chunks Bits" as a background, which I 
embossed with silver powder and then used black embossing ink on top of it.

I diluted some charcoal paint and applied it to the "Swirly Star Border". 
This gives a nice effect where the chipboard looks very roughly painted.

For the "Steampunk Gears", I also used paint, but a metallic navy blue one which I diluted less.

For the large "Wire Star" in the background, I used regular undiluted grey paint.

Finally, for the title, I used white embossing powder on the word: Perfection.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Diamond Chunk Bits

Steampunk gears Medium
Swirly Star Border
Wire Stars

I also have an extra layout to present, because I'm a guest designer the CSI blog.
 I created this layout for the #248 CSI: Colors, Story, inspiration.

For this month, 2Crafty Chipboard is sponsoring their challenges. 

I used "Hearts Clumps" for the background. I applied a white gesso on it and
 I applied some waterpaint powder to the background. 

I left the "Mini Branches" chipboard at their natural color. For the little 
"Messy Square Frame", I used a glittering embossing powder.

Finally, for the title, I used the word "Love" from the "Fine Words Set #1"
 and applied embossing ink.
