Karine's October share + video tutorial

Dear crafty friends,

It's Karine here today to share with you two layouts
. The first one is called «Love» and it features my brother's family.


I love this picture of them.
 My brother seems so happy and in love, that I wanted to show that in my layout.


To do so, I started with the Love Heart Frames, that I embossed with a dark brown
 embossing powder. It was my focal piece.


To give more texture to my layout, I used pieces of the Grid Panel, embossed in copper. 
I placed those pieces here and there, behind my embellishments clusters.


I also used one of the Fine Heart Borders and cut it in pieces.


I embossed them with a gold embossing powder and placed them here and there, 
over my flowers, in a curved shape. I love the effect.


My title piece is the word «Love» from the Line Words - Happiness Borders. I used 
the same copper embossing powder than before to emboss it.


Some other close-ups...



I created a video tutorial for this layout. Enjoy.




2Crafty chipboards used:

Grid Panel

Fine Heart Borders

Lace Heart Frames

Line Words - Happiness Borders


My second layout is called «Family» and it features my two kids with their cousin.


This time, my focal piece is the title.


I embossed the «Family» title with a turquoise embossing powder, to go with my mixed media background.


I decided my picture needed some kind of framing, si I choose one of the 6'' Circle Revolution Frames and embossed it a deep teal color.


Just peeking from underneath my flowers clusters are the Mini Branches, also embossed
 with a deep teal embossing powder.


I love the effect against the background.


I then selected the Leafy Silhouettes, embossed the same turquoise embossing powder
 than before and scattered them around my flowers clusters.


I love the delicate shape of those Leafy Silhouettes.

October Inspiration -Two Layouts to Share
By Di Garling

 "You"
  
Hi there 2Crafty fans, thanks for calling by the blog. Today I have two
layouts to share with you, starting of with this bright one simply titled, "YOU'.

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


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 Lindy's 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.



 "Enjoy Today"

 For my second layout today I want to share this little cutie in more my normal style !!

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


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

The 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 the "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 will see you back her again next month
with more 2Crafty inspiration for you.
