My 2Crafty Chipboard October DT Reveal
Part Two
"Enjoy Today"

 Hello lovelies, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have part two of my October DT reveal for

To start with on my background, after first doing a little stencilling, I brushed
a little bit of Lindys Stamp Gang "Whale Watch Blue" & some water to
tone it down, around the layout.


 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Enjoy Today - title
Assorted Polaroid Frames
Skeleton Leaves
Mini Fast Forward Arrows

 
I just love these 2Crafty "Assorted Polaroid Frames" which I have painted
in blue & white acrylic paints & the charcoal ones in some 
Viva Ferro metal effects paste.

Their  title - "Enjoy Today" was also painted in white acrylic paint. Too easy.


 I just kept snipping the frames & layering them up underneath my photos.

I have also used some different arrows from their "Mini Fast Forward Arrow Pack"
These were simply painted in a couple of coats of white paint also.

My paper & flowers are from 49 and Market & as you can see I have added some of 
the 2Crafty chippie "Skeleton Leaves" in & around the flowers for an added extra effect.


 I painted the leaves in a coat of acrylic paint followed up by rubbing some
Distress Ink in Peeled Paint over them. It sort of gives a two toned effect.

Well thats all from me today.
I do hope you liked my layout & remember I always love to read your feedback too.
 Until next time.

My 2 Crafty Chipboard October DT Reveal
Part One
"You"


Hi there lovelies, thanks for calling by. Today I have part one of my
October DT reveal for 2Crafty Chipboard to share with you

2Crafty Chipboard Used...
You title- loopy font
Filmstrips-tiny
Filmstrips - small
Filmstrips - tiny


I was given these two gorgeous pics when I was in Perth recently.
As soon as I saw them my mind started ticking over of what I was going to do  !!


For my background I have gone for clean lines, plain white background & I have
 used some Lindys Stamp Gang "Witches Potion Purple" spray used with a stencil.


I have used three different sizes of 2Crafty "Film Strips" - tiny, small & large.
All I did was to give them a coat of black acrylic paint & when dry, I wiped them
over roughly with some Viva Inka Gold paste.


I treated the "YOU-loopy font title" in exactly the same way.
Looks effective & doesn't get any easier than this !!


All these flowers are from 49 and Market. The purple one was actually white
& I sprayed it with the purple spray to match it in.

A super easy layout that I am very pleased how it turned out.

Well thats all for today. I hope you like this layout.
Let me know what you thing of this one??
It is a little different to what I normally do.

Until next time.

My Lindy's Stamp Gang October DT Reveal
"Sparkle CANVAS"
PLUS VIDEO TUTORIAL (with voice)


Hello there lovelies. Thanks for calling by. 
Today I have a little canvas to share with you that I created for my October DT reveal for
Lindy's Stamp Gang.

I have also made a VIDEO tutorial (WITH VOICE) on my creative process...
TO VIEW VIDEO CLICK HERE...


 Lindy's Stamp Gang Products Used...
"Alpine Ice Rose" spray
"Chateau Rose" spray
Luscious Lime" spray
"Yellow Rose of Texas" spray
"Midnight Rendezvous Raven" spray


I have used the "Alpine Ice Rose" & "Chateau Rose" sprays for the background.
Love these two colours together. 

Also did a few splatters on the background with the 
"Midnight Rendezvous Raven" (black) spray.

 I have used the "Luscious Lime" spray to colour up both the 2Crafty Chipboard 
title & Ivy Foliage. I think it makes a nice contrast to the pink background.


Hope you like my little canvas today & be sure to watch my VIDEO too.

If you like it I would love you to leave me some feedback.
I always enjoy reading what you have to say.

Until next time.

My 49 and Market October DT Reveal
Part Two
"Cherish"


Hi there lovelies, thanks for stopping by. Today I have part two of my October DT reveal for
 49 and Market 
I created this layout using two of their papers from the "Sand and Sea" 
paper collection as well as their fabulous "Layered 3D Embellishments".



49 and Market Products Used...
Sand and Sea Collection "Seafoam" paper
Sand and Sea Collection "Tangled" paper (B side)
Looking Through Collection "Cut Out Sheet"
Sand and Sea Layered 3D Embellishments
Blossom Blends Flowers in Sea Breeze
Garden Seeds Flowers in Natural Blush
Scripted Squared Stamp


I also used some beautiful pieces of 2Crafty Chipboard on my layout too.


Here you can see I have used a wonderful frame around my photo that is on the 
"Layered 3D Embellishment Sheet" as well as some single leaves, a butterfly 
& a little bird too. Those 3D's are such good value.


Lots of beautiful flowers from that vast range that 49 and Market have. I just love them all !!


I thought I would also add a little bow to nestle in amongst all the flowers.


Here you can see I have fussy cut some flowers & leaves that were actually on some 
of the 49 and Market packaging!!! Too nice to throw out. I finished off with some 
stamping using one of the many from the 49 and Market range. This one is my favourite.
 It is called "Scripted Square" .  Well thats all from me today. 
See you back here again soon.
Until then.

My 49 and Market October DT Reveal
Part One
"Timeless"



Hello there lovelies. Thanks for calling by. Today I have part one of my October DT reveal for
 I created this using their "Cottage Life" paper collection. I used the "Provence" 
paper as my background, & I used a second sheet of it to "fussy cut" some flowers
  to tuck in here & there around my photos etc.


49 and Market products used....
"Cottage Life" - "Provence" paper X 2
"Cottage Life" - Layered 3D Embellishments
"Garden Seeds" flowers in Aloe
"Garden Seeds flowers in Linen
"Garden Blooms" in Alabaster (I sprayed a couple of these to match)
Jute Cording- single ply
"Timeless" Archival Board in white


 As you can see in these two photos, 49 and Market have added a small range of
 archival board embellishment packs to match some of the range so I thought 
I would try this one out on my layout.


Here you can see some of these gorgeous blue flowers from the 
"Layered 3D Embellishment Sheet" tucked in & around my layout.
 These 3D's are fast becoming one of my favourite "go to" embellishments. 
There is so much on the one sheet that you can create several layouts out of 
just the one pack & I adore the colours too.


More 3D's tucked in with some of the other 49 and Market flowers.


I have also tied a multi thread bow to add to all the other 
textures using our new "Jute Cording".


 Well thats all from me today, I do hope you liked my layout, see you
 back here tomorrow with more inspiration.

Until then...
