May Inspiration By Kavitha

Hello everyone,

Kavitha on blog today to share some inspiration for May.

Whimsical watercolor layout...

My inspiration for this layout is the gorgeous pattern paper from 13arts,
I  just wanted to extend the colors and pattern of the paper and
2crafty chipboard helped me to do that beautifully.

I created the watercolor background using Lindys sprays.
The chipboards are coated two times with heavy white gesso and
I used the same background colors for the chipboard pieces,
drying each color in between.

I finished off the layout with some sequins, beads and splashes of white paint.

2Crafty chipboards used:
6" circle revolution frame
Butterfly frames
Corner vine leaves
Frame madeline's flourish

Two Hearts - Canvas

The focal point of this canvas is the delicate Handdrawn hearts.
I mounted them in the center of the canvas,coated with white gesso.

After coloring the background partially,leaving lots of white space,
I arranged the flowers and embellishments. I have used leafy shrub#3
 among my flower cluster which is also just coated with white gesso.

My Happy Place - Layout

I also have  another layout to share which I made for another DT,
I love how the 2crafty chipboard pieces heat embossed with color
embossing powders looks gorgeous against black.

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!

2Crafty products used:
Grid Bits
Film Strips Small
Steamgears Small
Enjoy the Journey word

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:
