My 2Crafty Chipboard January DT Reveal
Part Two
"This Boy"

 Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part two of my January DT reveal for
2Crafty Chipboard to share with you that I created 
& it features my cute little grandson Henry

 2Crafty Chipboard Used..
This Boy - title
Bubble Grid Panel
Steampunk Gears - Medium
Steampunk - Small

 After firstly doing a mixed media background I then base coated the "This Boy" 
title in white acrylic paint & coloured it green with some "Silks" paint.

Now for all the other chipboard pieces I base coated them in black acrylic paint & 
when dry I dabbed on some brown ink in a random fashion.  Next I sprayed them
 all with Lindy's Gang "Incandescent Copper" & "Grab A Guy Gold" sprays.

 This was sooo super easy to do & it gave the chipboard a really great look.

For the "Steampunk Gears-Small" to make them a little different to the medium
ones, I then added a little rub of "Prima Alchemy Metallique Wax" in White Gold. 

  Some added burlap & corrugated card adds to the feel of this layout.

All finished. I do hope you like my layout & are perhaps inspired
just a little. I will be back later in the month with more.

Until then.

My 2Crafty Chipboard January DT Reveal
Part One
"Nan's Girl"

Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by. Today I have a layout to share with you 
featuring my little grandaughter as part of my January DT work for 2Crafty Chipboard.

 We did a photo shoot with her a while back & I have lots of these
 gorgeous pics so I thought I would scrap a few more of them today.

 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Nan's Girl - title
Frame Olivia
Corner Ivy
Ivy Clusters

 After firstly doing a watercolour background I set about altering the chipboard.

  I started off by base coating all the chipboard pieces in white paint.

  These gorgeous "Olivia's Frames" I simply gave two coats of white acrylic paint. Too easy !!

 For the "Ivy Clusters" I blobbed a little texture paste on them to create some texture 
& when dry I coloured the with some Lindy's "Sassy Saphire" spray & then finished
 them off with some Sparkling Dust crystals although it is hard to see that in the pics.

 The "Nan's Girl - title" & the "Corner Ivy" were all coloured
up with the same Lindy's "Sassy Saphire" spray.  I cut the "Corner Ivy" in
half to create a different placement instead of using it as a corner.

All finished. I hope you like my layout today.
I will be back in a few days with more inspiration for you.

Until then

My Farewell Post To Lindy's Gang
Lindy's "December Tag-A-Long"
"A Photo Christmas Tag"

Hi there friends. Welcome to Lindy's  Gang "December-Tag-A-Long".

Before I start on this post I just want to say thanks so much for following my 
Lindy's journey & this is my final post on the Lindy's blog today as I am stepping 
down from the Lindy's team at the end of this month to cut back on my
 workload a little,  I just have way too much on my plate at the moment.
 Thank you so much to all the 
Lindy's gang for having me on your team over the past year. 
It has been an absolute pleasure & an honor to work with such amazing products.

So lets get started on this tag post !!  All the girls in the Lindy's design team are creating
some gorgeous tags for Christmas & I thought it might be nice to actually add a photo
 to my tag. Kind of personalises it & I thought it might be nice, tied onto a gift for
 someone special in my family too.

 I have heat embossed the little 2Crafty Chipboard  #tistheseason chipboard word with  
Lindy's "Cuckoo Clock Cardinal" embossing powder. Such a gorgeous Christmas red.

For the background of my tag I used Lindy's "Tiffany Lou Blue" Starburst Spray.
It is such a beautiful colour & the perfect contrast with red. Just right for Christmas.

Next up I used Lindy's "Sassy Saphire" Magicals out of the "Drop Dead Diva" Magical set 
on the 2Crafty chipboard holly branch on my tag. This is probably my most favourite 
Lindy's colour of all & I use it all the time !!

Well there you have it. I hope you like my tag & all the other tags our design team
 are making this month.

Merry Christmas to all.

My 2Crafty Chipboard December DT Reveal
Part Two
"#Merry Christmas"

Hi there friends, thanks for stopping by. Today I have part two of my 
December DT reveal for
Well as promised, I have another Christmas layout to 
inspire you to scrap some of those Chrissy pics.

2Crafty Products Used...
Mini Hashtag Words-Xmas
Tiny ATC Hearts & Stars Pack
Bag of 2017's
Christmas Polaroid Frames
Pointed Ornament Set

For my title I used the "#Merry Christmas" title out of the
"Mini Hashtags Xmas Words" pack which I painted in red acrylic 
paint & when dry I added a coat of "Glossy Accents" to add some shine.

For the "Pointed Ornaments" I painted the back in purple paint & added
purple glitter to it while wet. For the front part of the ornament I heat
embossed in gold & wiped a little purple ink over to create a bit of shabby. 

Here you can see the "Christmas Polaroid Frames". I do love these.
I have simply painted these in acrylic paints, the easiest way to treat chipboard.

 A little mixed media on the background & lots of sequins for sparkle.

I have also sprayed some 49 and Market flowers to match.

I treated the "2017" date the same as I did on the title.
I love these as it makes the date into an embellishment.

Well thats all I have for you today, I hope you liked this one.

Back soon with more.
