Summer is approaching quickly here in Quebec and restriction are being relaxed as vaccination is going well and COVID cases have dropped a lot.

"Tranquil Moments" pour 2Crafty

Hello 2Crafty friends,

I hope you're all doing great! Today I'm sharing a layout that's slightly outside my usual colour palettes. However, I'm quite happy with the result! I find that the chipboards blend nicely with the background.

"Tranquil Moments"

 

For the "Doily Disc Set 1", I applied one coat of white gesso, two coats of pink sandy paint and applied a bit of black ink on the border. On the "11" Fine Floral Frame Set", I used ivory embossing enamel.


I left the "Frame Handrawn Hearts" to its natural chipboard color.


For the title, "Tranquil Moments", I inked the chipboard fully in black. Then I rubbed gold wax on top to get this shiny effect.

I used the following 2Crafty chipboards in this layout:

"Thankful" pour 2Crafty

 Hello 2Crafty fans,


Today I'd like to share a layout featuring my favorite furry friend, my dog Neho! Spring is now upon us here in Quebec and he's super happy to be spending hours outside without having to put a winter jacket!

"Thankful"



For the "Frame circle borders", I used two coats of green metallic paint and traced the contours with black ink. On the "Sammi's swirls", I applied a forest green embossing enamel containing a bit of gold. 


I traced the "Funky hearts" on leftover fabric, then glued the fabric on top of the chipboards. For the "6x4 Phrase stick set 4", I applied white embossing ink and traced the borders in black. On the title, "thankful", I applied 3 coats of black embossing powder.

For this layout, I used the following 2Crafty chipboards:

"Good Vibes" pour 2Crafty

 Hello 2Crafty friends!

One good thing to come out of the various pandemic lockdowns is that I had time to pick up a new crafting skill: I started sewing! At first, I was doing facemasks to help people stay safe&stylish. But over the months I became more comfortable and I recently completed my first pieces of clothing for my kids. 

Last week, I completed my very first long-sleeved t-shirt, custom made for my son, using fabric he choose! We are both super happy with the result so this really deserved a nice picture so I could create a layout to celebrate this success! I've picked some awesome chipboards that fit my son and a color pallette that matches the t-shirt's.

 "Good Vibes"



On the "Brick Panel", I roughly applied some diluted green-gold shimmering paint, still letting a bit of the chipboard color and texture show through.


For the "Foliage Set 5", I used green-gold embossing enamel then inked the borders in black. On the "Steampunk cog strips", I applied pewter paint, then added some rustic mint paint applied very roughly and finally applied some gold wax with my fingers.


On the "Steampunk Gears Medium", I applied the same rustic mint paint and gold wax as on the "Steampunk Cog Strips" (but not the pewter paint), then inked the borders in black. For the "Circle Frames", I just roughly rubbed gold wax, to let a lot of the chipboard color through. On the title, "Good vibes", I used black-gold embossing enamel.

For this layout, I used the following 2Crafty chipboards:

Brick Panel [660038]
Foliage Set 5 [M00802]
Steampunk Cog Strips [M00783]
Steampunks Gears Medium [M00646]
Circle Frames [120022]
Good vibes [W00583]
