June Inspiration
Two Layouts PLUS TWO VIDEO TUTORIALS
By Mary Catt

''Dream''

Hello 2Crafty friends!
It's Mary here with you today and I have two layouts and
 two video tutorials to share with you.

For the first layout, I used 7dots papers, several Lindy's Stamp Gang
sprays and powders and Prima Marketing flowers.
I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL of the procedure.

2Crafty Chipboards used...
6" Clock Face Frames
Flourish Adornment Set 4
Dream - Loopy Font





Some close ups...



  
For my background I used the ''9mm'' paper from the ''Dreamscapes'' collection.
  I created texture on my background by applying modeling paste through a stencil.
When dried, I used ''Cattail Copper Brown'', ''Bayou Boogie Gold'' and
''Pineapple Paradise'' Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to color my page.


 I heat embossed the ''Clock Face Frame'', the chippies from the
''Flourish Adornment Set 4'' and the ''Dream - Loopy Font''
 with ''Bratwurst Brown'' Lindy's powder.


 To finish, I added some Bronze micro beads and Copper Glass Glitter
with gel medium and made some splatters with white acrylic artist ink.




 ''Escape''


The second layout was made with Prima Marketing papers from the ''Love Clippings'' collection, Prima Marketing flowers and some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and powders.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...

2Crafty Chipboards used...
Ada's Flourishes
Mini Flourish Bits
Mini Word Set 1 



And a closer look at the details...


To start, I applied on my paper some white gesso. Then, I created texture on the background with modeling paste and a stencil. For more interest, I mixed some Light paste with the ''Autumn Maple Crimson'' Lindy's Stamp Gang Magical and I also applied the mixture through a stencil on my paper.


 Then, I added some color with the ''Pineapple Paradise'' Lindy's Stamp Gang spray.

  I heat embossed the chippies from the ''Mini Flourish Bits'', the title from the ''Mini Word Set 1'' and the ''Ada's Flourishes'' chipboards with ''Gilded Burgundy Brass'' Lindy's embossing powder.


 When everything was glued down, I added some Art Stones with gel medium.



That's all for today my friends!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

June Inspiration by Ingrid

Hello everyone!
Ingrid here today with two canvas layouts to share with you.
For my first project I used a photo from our vacation to Greece last year.

DREAM


With this project I started by making the background using a stencil and modeling paste.
Added the paints and toned it down with some gesso.
Used a thread string to make the vertical line.
Also used some felting wool to create some texture.


The dream arrow chippie, almost bare and with a light touch of gesso.


The dandelion chippie got two coats of gesso.


The felting wool gives it a nice dreamy, almost a watercolor look.


Added some beads.


A piece of the Leafy Shrub Set #1.


Some flowers with a center of the felting wool.
All got a final touch with some gesso.

2Crafty Chipboard used:
Arrow Word Set
Leafy Shrub Set 1
Whispy Dandelions





And here is my second project:
Hubby and I are also loving our long walks together and on these walks I love to 
take photos. This one is from an early walk with the fresh dew on all the plants and trees.

BEAUTY

I started this project by glueing the elegant flourish and some bubble clumps.
Gessoed the whole canvas and added some modeling paste. 
I made some circles in the wet modeling paste with a small stick.
Once dry, I added all the paints.
Some gesso as an extra touch to let the chipboard stand out more.


The circles made in the wet modeling paste gives a nice background.


The flourish on the background.


A piece of the bubble clump.


The same piece of flourish I used in the background but this one got a coat with gesso.
Under all the chipboards and flowers, I added some felting wool.


The word was painted with some acrylic paint.


Another piece of the bubble clumps, also painted with some gesso.


Made some watered white acrylic paint for the splatters. 
Love how it looked on that felting wool.

6inch Circle Revolution
