July Inspiration By Ingrid

Hello there 2Crafty friends!
Ingrid here today with a canvas and two cards.


I wanted to make a summer canvas featuring lots of gorgeous chipboards! 
Made the background by glueing some plaster tape with gel medium.
Added the paints and once dry, some gesso to make it look softer.

I used some crackle paint for the old fence.
All the chipboard got a coat of gesso first before all the paints.

Colored the berry branch with acrylic paints and once dry, a little touch with some gesso.

The thistle shrub got the same treatment.

The plaster tape in the background gives it some more texture.

Again the Dandelions painted and lightly touched with some gesso.

The butterfly, painted with some acrylic paint and gessoed the edges.

Here is my second project this month, a set of two cards....

For these cards I cut up the Turkish Lace panel and glued them on the small canvas cards.
I also glued some plaster tape for extra texture.
Added some art stones and gessoed the two cards before the paints.
Once dry, they got also got a touch with some gesso.

Here you can see the differenence between the before and after, the final touch with gesso.
I just love the much more softer look! :) 

With the plaster I created more texture.

The words got two coats with some gesso.

The art stones.

The butterfly was painted and I gessoed the edges.

The Turkish Lace Panel.

Hope you all got inspired by today's projects! :)

July Inspiration - by Debbie

"Love Is In The Air"

Hi everyone!
 Debbie here with your today to share my July projects featuring 2Crafty Chipboard!
  My first layout is a romantic one.  I added some masking to the background and random stamping.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Beaded Hanging Heart
Fine Leafy Bush
Love is in the Air
Lacey Border Set
Corner Annalise

I used both of the Corner Annalise, one on each side of my picture.
Both were embossed with Antique Taupe embossing powder.

I embossed the Fine Leafy Bush with Verdant Embossing powder, then lightly inked the edges with a lighter green ink.  I cut the chipboard into pieces and placed it in several areas of my layout.

Here I've placed a piece from the Beaded Hanging Heart embossed with a mixture of
Antique Taupe and Plum Embossing powders.  I inked a piece from the Lacey borders
with a distressed ink and placed pieces randomly around my picture.

My title, Love is in the Air, was treated the same as the Beaded Hanging Heart,
embossed with a mixture of Antique Taupe and Plum embossing powders.


I was looking through some old pictures on my computer and came across this one I
took several years ago. I can remember that day, when I patiently waited to get that
 "perfect" photo of the bee on my flowers. Lots of stamping and misting on the background paper.
 I created this layout for the current challenge at the

Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo July Challenge - Beauty.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Bubble Clumps
Beautiful Loopy Font
Frame Lucy's Flourish
Oriental Flower Stem

I embossed the Frame Lucy's Flourish with a mixture of Ebony, Fuchsia and Verdant
embossing powders.  The same was used on the Bubble Clumps.  The bottom left of the
 picture is a piece from the Oriental Flower Stem, embossed with Verdant embossing powder.
 I added some microbeads to the Bubble Clumps.

The title was embossed with a mixture of Ebony and Fuchsia embossing powders.
  Love the effect!

Tucked beneath the pink is a flower piece I cut from the Oriental Flower Stem,
which I embossed with Fuchsia embossing powder.

I hope I've inspired you!

See you next month!

Karine's Share with a video tutorial

Dear Crafty Friends,

It's my turn, today, to share my creations for the month. 
The first layout I created is called "A Glimpse of You". Here it is. 

A Glimpse of You

I wanted to use a few leaves and branches on that layout. I used the Spring Flower Bunches and Leafy Twig Branches above and below my picture.

I left all my chipboards bare, as I liked the contrast.

To frame the picture, I used the Frame Round Ornate.

My title piece is called A Glimpse of You. 

In my embellishments, I chose to add just a little pop of red.

My second layout is called "Hello". Here it is.


I used a lot of chipboards on this layout. To make sure they fit together, I painted them all black. I began with the Film Strips - Small and the Film Strips - Medium.

I added a piece of the Grid Panel below my picture.

I also decided to add pieces of the Checkerboard Clumps, here and there.

Finally, my title piece, the "Hello" title, is embossed with gold embossing powder. 

I made a process video. I hope you'll enjoy it.
