2Crafty September DT Work

It's my turn to share my design team work on the 2Crafty blog today. Here's my post.

"Live It Up"

Every summer, my sister and brother-in-law splurge on season tickets 
to a local concert venue, and this is a picture they took from a recent concert. 
The "Live It Up" title was a perfect starting point to celebrate this summer event.


For the "Live It Up" title and "2015's" date, I first applied gesso to the chipboard. 
Then I colored the pieces with teal stamp ink and added texture by stamping on top of them 
with darker ink using a Kaiser Craft texture stamp. 
Finally, I used a white gel pen to outline the letters and numbers. 
The curvy arrow is from the "Crazy Arrow" set. 
I used silver Zing glitter embossing powder to give the page some sparkle. 
I used black ink to color the "Small Film Strip" and yellow ink on the "Handdrawn Stars."


I covered a small frame from the "Polaroid Assortment" with patterned paper. 
The "Music Notes" were a perfect addition to this page, 
and I used the silver embossing powder to match the curvy arrow.

"Adore You"
Meet my sweet Miss Maisey. Here she is posing with her pretty pink toenails 
which we bought to prevent her from scratching the furniture. 
Alas, she wasn't having any of that and chewed them off in a matter of days. 
Fortunately I got this sweet picture before they were gone.
I found lots of wonderful chipboard to adorn my layout.


How awesome is that great big "Doodled Heart?" 
It's wonderful for serving as both a background layer 
and a canvas for holding your title and adding bits to decorate your page. 
I swiped various shades of pink ink on the heart to give it a mottled texture 
and match the various pinks on my page.
The "Adore You" was the perfect title to express my feelings about this picture. 
I used white paint to color the title.


Oh, how I love those little hearts from the "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars" sheet. 
They are just perfect for adding a sweet little extra. 
I colored them with pink stamp ink and then added some Stickles for sparkle.

The Chevron Bits, which I colored first with gesso 
and then with various shades of stamp ink to match my papers, 
were perfect to point to the subject of my layout.

Two fantastic pages Debbi. So much to look at, yet the photos remain the focal point. Your use of chipboard is sheer perfection. Thanks for the inspiration.
