How beautiful is this Handrawn Heart Frame?
Such a perfect element to frame a beautiful picture.
I used the smaller of the two that comes in the set
and sprayed it with a copper-colored Glimmer mist for shimmer.
At the top of my page I used a full piece from the Funky Heart Swirls Set.
I went a completely different route for my mom's second page.
For my sister's birthday, we had a luau-themed party,
and of course the guys (my stepdad, my sister's husband, and my husband)
decided to confiscate the coconut bras, leis, and hula skirts,
which made for some hilarious photos.
I wanted to give the page a fun, sort of cartoon feel.
Of course, I had to use the awesome 2Crafty Palm Trees for this page.
I have the Small Palm Tree Set because I scrap 8 x 8,
but there are also some larger pieces.
I have some really cool texture paste by Martha Stewart that's really chunky and textured,
so I first coated the trees with gesso and then spread that texture paste on the fronds.
I sprayed that with two shades of green mist.
I used regular texture paste on the trunks and swiped three different browns
on the trunks after the paste dried.
I used the Alpha Set 1 for the title.
It's such a fun, playful font that's perfect for this page.
I used lime green Zing embossing powder and then used a pen to outline the letters
to give them that cartoon feel I was going for.
I painted a 2Crafty Polaroid Frame with white acrylic paint and outlined it with a black pen.
The little hearts are from the ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars.
This is a great set to get because there are tons of them on the sheet--60 pieces!
I colored the hearts with a pen that matched the pink in my flowers and then sprinkled clear embossing powder. That gave them a cool wet look.
The Hessian Patch Panel behind the tree and photo is one of my favorite pieces.
It adds such interesting texture. I originally had it on there raw but then decided it needed color,
so I mixed some green gelatos with water and painted the parts showing with a paintbrush.
2Crafty Products used in this project:
"#Hashtag Selfie Fail"
The 2Crafty Circle Frames were perfect for framing these wacky pictures
and helped me mimic the circular photos in the sketch from the Case File.
The Small Film Strips helped to reinforce the photo theme of my page.
I coated all my chipboard pieces with black embossing powder.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a peek at my pages.
I hope I gave you some ideas for using the beautiful 2Crafty chipboard.
