2Crafty November DT Work

It's my turn to share my DT work on the 2Crafty blog.
I'm here to share three layouts I made 
using the fantastic 2Crafty chipboard.
That's my mom and my step-dad, who passed away last Christmas. 
I've been working on a scrapbook for my mom, and I plan to give this page to her.
I used the November challenge at Scrap Around the World as inspiration for this page.

I love this mood board! I drew lots of inspiration from it--the wood background, the words stretching across the paper, the doilies, the music paper, the flowers, the colors, the torn edges from the bundles of sheet music, the stencil mimicking the circular wheels on the bike...

Here are some details... How beautiful are these Line Word Titles
I love how they stretch across the page. Since I scrap 8 x 8, I had to trim it a bit. 
I first coated my chipboard title with gesso 
and then painted it with Twinkling H2O's. It's super shimmery in real life.

The 2Crafty chipboard doilies are so pretty, and I was able to use one, cut in half to look like I had used two. I also painted this with a white shimmery Twinkling H2O, The butterfly was also painted with Twinkling H2Os.

How sweet are these pen nibs? I mixed two different Twinkling H2O inks to give it an aged patina look and painted the heart to match the butterfly. The heart is actually the inside of a Heart Silhouette. Those hearts are a great product to get because you basically get double the hearts!

2Crafty Products used in this project:
Line Words - Happiness Borders
Sharon's Butterflies
Pen Nibs
Heart Silhouettes
Polaroid Assortment Frames

"Smile for the Camera"

That's my husband's niece. I'm making a book for her too. 
I used the November challenge at The Color Room as a starting point for my layout.

This color palette is so fresh and lovely! I used a paper towel to dab the ink to give it a watercolor feel.
Here are some details from this layout...
I inked many of the pieces black, including this Tiny Funky Frame, with stamp ink, 
giving it a cool matte look. I also inked the cameras 
and then coated it with embossing powder to give it a wet look 
that went with the pond picture. I outlined the grooves in the camera
with a fine-tipped black pen. Love those grooved details 
2Crafty adds to many of their chipboard pieces!

How awesome are these Word Circles? They are just perfect to serve as a part of an interesting title embellishement. I used a second, larger camera from the set to hold part of the title.

The Film Strips are always a perfect embellishment for adding a border. 
I love how the film strip frames the patterned paper behind it. 
I cut the film strip in two pieces so that it could extend further, 
tucking the cut ends behind the photo.

Mini Cameras
Word Circles Set 1
Film Strips - Small
Frames Tiny Funky

"Please Stay Thin"
I made this page for a Case File at CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration last month. The story stemmed from a prompt that said "If you could write a letter to your younger self, what would you write in only three words?"

I only used one piece of chipboard for this page, but I think it's really a highlight
 of this page and was perfect for this Case File, so I wanted to share it.
