Last Inspiration From Marianne Johansson, Norway

"Be Yourself"



Hello all 2Crafty Chipboard fans.

Today is a special day for me, my last post for 2Crafty Chipboard.
It's been a fabulous year and I have loved every second of it!
Amazing chipboard and so easy to use! My favorites are the titles and the background panels.

Thank you Vanessa for having faith in me and your generosity.  Love you!

And thanks to my fellow team-members, it's been an awesome ride!
 Wish you all the best!

So back to my projects for June.

First one is with a photo of yours truly, taken while I'm on my way to a crop (by train).


This time I have mostly used black inkpad to color the chippies.


I have layered the panels under and beneath the papers and photos to get some dimension.


Played with some crackle paint, ink and stamps on the background.


Used bits of the "checkerboard clumps" as details and a white pen


Some more of the "Checkerboard clumps" on top of the photo


Did some doodling on the background as well, just some random places.


The title fits my photo as I always try to be myself.


2Crafty Chipboards used:

Brick panel
Be yourself - title
Dottiebits
Chequerbox clumps

  

  



The next is with a photo from our trip to London last year.
(maybe I have used this photo earlier, don't remember, but I love it so much)


On this layout I wanted to use chipboards matching the photo and no problems
finding the right chippies from 2Crafty.


I used different kinds of inkpads to color the chippies.
Apart from the birds, here I used white gesso and some black inkpad on the edges.


The different chipboards are layered in several layers and with flowers between, to match the photo.


I wanted to let my layout be a scene and that's why I used the birds.
 Placed on the flowers and on the brick wall.


Added some leaves beneath the flowers



The title is also covered with white gesso.


2Crafty Chipboard used:

Leafy shrub set 2
Bird set
Brick panel
Cherish the moment  - title
Lattice leaf set
Lavender shrub
Thistle

  

  


  

  

So, that's all from me.
Thank you for all your kind comments and for following me this time on 2Crafty Chipboard.

Hugs
