May Inspiration by Noura Pompilla

Hello 2crafty friends!!

Noura here today to show you my first projects as part of 2Crafty Design Team.
 I'm excited and this month I've prepared a layout and a canvas,
so let me present my first project.

"Love my Mum"

Some close ups...

"Funky heart Swirls "and "Circle heart frames" chipboards. They are absoloutely
gorgeous I love the way they combine perfectly for the topic of my page.I covered them
 both with a layer of gesso so that it would stand out over the background color.

For the decoration I added "Addy's Butterflies" which I covered
with black gesso and I stuck a half of a pearl on it.

And finally I added the words that fit perfectly for the layout "Love my Mum" title
which I also painted with black gesso & I used a silver glitter on half of it.

My layout is inspired by More than Words challenge.

"Create Art"-Canvas

Some Close ups...

For my second project I created a reverse canvas in a steampunk style.For the base of 
the background I used the "Checkerd board clumps" and "Squeare collage panel",
they mix awesomely for what I wanted to achieve.

Then I started to create my little Frankestein and I decorated him with one of the
 "Clock face Frames" and "Angel wings". This is so pretty both of them were
 covered with black gesso and I gave a little touch of silver wax.

In the corners are a mix of "Steampunk gears small" ,
 "Steampunk gears medium" and "Assorted arrows".

To conclude, I used "Everyday font L/C" to form the word ART and I added 
texture with mini art stones and silver wax.

I´m  participating in the Mixed Media World May Challenges.
This is their beautiful moodboard.

May Inspiration by Ingrid

Hello everyone! 
It's my turn on the blog today with two projects.
I thought it was about time for me to make a masculine post featuring my hubby Rob!


Started this project by glueing some grid bits.
Painted them with gesso and let it dry.
Added the paints and did some stamping.
All touched with some gesso to let the chipboard stand out.

Embossed the filmstrip with black powder.
Had this powder for a long time and it didn't work as it normally 
should have done, but I kinda love that powdery look! 

Added another grid piece and painted with some colors.

Added some splatters.

The word title got a coat with some gesso first and then some turquoise paint.

The painted gears and some threads for extra texture.

The grid bits make a great background!

And here is my other canvas (with photo video tutorial).


 Last year on our vacation we hiked the Samaria gorge in Crete.
The warm temperatures and all the rocks made it very challenging! 
So it was quite an adventure but really worth it!
With this project I wanted to mimic the scenery of the gorge, including all the rocks.

Here is the tutorial:...

And here are some details:

May Inspiration and a Picture Tutorial with Debbie

Hi everyone,
Debbie here with you today with my May projects.
 On my side of the world it is Spring.  We've had some unusually cold weather lately and
 lots of rain.  This week is set though to be a beautiful one with sun and lots of warmer days.

My Happy Place

I love when Spring arrives, as it is that time of the year to start working outside in my flower gardens.  I always get annual plants from my son for Mothers Day.  I find gardening very peaceful and love the end results.  The picture is from my front flower garden a few years ago. Love the geraniums and my ceramic bunnies!  Lots of flowers and 2Crafty Chipboard!!!

I've prepared a step by step picture tutorial for you to view.

Step 1

Emboss 6" Circle Revolution chipboard with antique taupe embossing powder.
 Matt photo and adhere chipboard circle and photo to the layout.

Step 2

Emboss Ivy Clusters and Leafy Rounds with a mixture of verdant and sage
embossing powders.  Adhere to page along with some lace.

Step 3

Place flowers to the left of the photo.

Step 4

Place flowers to the right of the photo.

Step 5

Emboss title "My happy place" with antique taupe embossing powder and glue down.

Festive Vine

I embossed the Festive Vine with some brown and turquoise embossing powders.
 I cut it into pieces and used the pieces on various places on my layout.

At the top you see a piece of the Festive Vine.  I also placed one of the Clock Face Frames embossed with brown and antique taupe embossing powders.  The Sharon's Butterfly was
embossed with a mixture of  auburn and brown embossing powders.

At the base of my photo is another piece from the Festive Vine.  Beneath the flower
 to the left I placed Lattice Leaves embossed with verdant embossing powder.

My title was embossed with a mixture of antique taupe and brown embossing powders.
To finish off my layout I added brown and copper microbeads.

I  hope I have inspired you today.
