Once Upon a dream

Hello 2Crafty fans!

I hope you're doing well! On our side, spring time has officially started here in Quebec and snow is finally melting away and we're starting to enjoy a bit of warmth. Things took an unexpected turn for us a few days ago when everything shut down due to the pandemic and everybody being asked to stay home. But we're making the most of it, spending some quality family time together. It also means I have a bit more time for crafts!!!

"Once Upon a Dream"



On the "Ornate Heart Set", I applied some shimmering rose gold paint. Then I dabbed a pink ink on top.


For the "Scroll 3", I used burgundy embossing powder, then applied a bit of copper embossing ink on top. Finally, I've added just a tiny bit of white embossing ink.


For the title, "Once Upon a Dream", I applied copper-pink embossing enamel.



I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout.

"Cherished Family Memories" pour 2Crafty

Hello 2Crafty friends!

I hope you're having a good time! On our side, the long winter here in Quebec is finally showing signs that it might not last forever as the temperatures start rising above the freezing point every day (and hopefully we won't have winter #2 in March as sometimes happen). This brings us a nice boost of happiness, leaving the "winter blues" feeling behind. The layout I'm revealing today reflects that mood, with a warmer feeling, perfect for the spring that's starting for us!

"Cherished Family Memories"



For the "Frame Handrawn Hearts", I applied one coat of red metallic paint.


On the "Aztec Flower Set 1", at the bottom left, I dabbed a red embossing ink then applied a gold wax on top roughly, with my hands.


On the "Heart and Circle Arrow Set", I've applied honey coloured ink.
  

Behind the picture frame, on the "Checkerboard Panel", I used a teal embossing powder. For the title, "Cherished Family Hearts", I used a black embossing powder with a sandy finish.

I've used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:

Cherished [w00568]
Frame Handrawn Hearts [fr0082]
Checkerboard Panel [660045]

It's been years since my husband and I wanted a dog and we've decided that our kids were old enough and the time was just right. He's been with us for almost two weeks now and we're in love! He's also crazy about snow, he really likes to frolick and pounce in it!

So now I'm sharing the very first layout I made featuring him: meet Neho the puppy.

On the "Fine Snowflakes", I've applied some white-blue embossing enamel.


For the "Dianne's Doily Set", I first applied a coat of white gesso. Then, I've used some navy-blue watercolor on top of it. I've applied some blue wax on the contour. Finally, I've traced the borders with black ink.


On the title, "Snow Happy", I used silver embossing powder and then dabbed some white embossing ink on top.

"This moment" pour 2Crafty

Hello 2Crafty fans!

Today I'd like to share a layout I did last week that about one of those little moments of pure joy in life where you remember that being with the ones you love is all that matters. Sometimes you're not doing anything special, just sharing a little moment of cuddling and playing, and it is still the most rewarding moment as a mom.

"This moment" 



On the "Chicken wire panel", at the back, I used silver embossing powder and dabbed some black embossing ink on top. For the "Steampunk Cog Strips", behind the button, I applied blue embossing powder roughly and then traced the border with black ink.


On the "Frangy", I applied blue embossing enamel and then traced the borders with black ink.


For the "Frame Alissa", I applied white paint to which I had added blue pigments. Then, once it was dry, I used a sandpaper to give it a more rustic look.


For the title, "This moment", I applied textured embossing powder, giving something of a coal look.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:

Frame Alissa [fr0125]
Frangy [m00121]
Chicken wire panel [m00400]
Steampunk cog strips [m00783]
This Moment [w00526]




That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this layout and it gave you some ideas for your own creations. I will be back in a few weeks with more ideas to share with you guys. Until then, I wish you the best.
