January Inspiration By Sabrina Turpin

"Life Documented"

Hello everyone!
I hope that 2018 is treating you well so far. It has been fantastic for me as I am 
absolutely thrilled to be joining the amazing 2Crafty team!

Let me introduce myself. I’m Sabrina Turpin, from Quebec, Canada, mom of two
 fantastic kids. I work in a daycare by day and I am a chipboard ninja by night!

For my first post, I’ll be sharing two new layouts. The first one, “Life Documented”, 
features my daughter having fun in a playground.

I inked and then used a transparent embossing powder on the
"Frame Madelines Flourish".

For the title I simply painted and inked it & the 
"Pointed Doiley Frames" I did the same.

Again on the "Tiny Leaf Stems" I did the same, just painting & inking as it looks so good.
These I used an embossing ink on the "Sharon's Butterflies".

For this page, I used the following 2Crafty Chipboards:

"Life Documented - title
Sharon's Butterflies
Frame Madeline's Flourish
Pointed Doiley Frames
"Tiny Leaf Stems"


My second page, "Friends", puts into the spotlight one of my closest friend.

For the "Funky Hearts" I embossed them with embossing powder.

The larger hearts were painted and inked & the smaller ones were
 embossed with embossing powder.

The "Twiggy Branch" was painted painted with acrylic metallic paints.

The border is from the "Lacey Border Set #1"& both that & the "Damask"
 were painted in acrylic paints.
The "Friends" title was embossed with embossing powders.

More January Inspiration - By Di Garling
"This Boy"

 Hi there 2Crafty fans, thanks for stopping by.
Today I have another layout 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 good 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.
