May Inspiration - Two Layouts
By Mary Catt

''Enjoy the Journey''

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 from the ''Hazy Days'' collection, several
Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and powders and a Cuts2luv flair. All the flowers are
Prima Marketing.
I have also made a VIDEO TUTORIAL of the procedure.

2Crafty chipboards used...
Indian Feathers
Moroccan Panel
Enjoy the Journey
6" Circle Revolution Frames

I based my page on the 7dots Studio and the Words and Paintery May challenge.

Some close ups...

I created a texture on my background by applying modeling paste through a stencil.
When dried, I used ''Tibetan Poppy Teal'', ''Merci Beaucoup Mint'' and
''South Shore Sand'' Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays to color my page. 

I heat embossed the pieces from the ''Moroccan Panel'' with ''Midnight Copper'' Lindy's powder. The ''Circle Revolution Frame'' and the ''Dreamcatcher'' were embossed with ''Bratwurst Brown'' and the title and the ''Indian Feathers'' with ''Starbright Gold Green'' powder.

To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and plum glass beads with gel medium
 and made some splatters with white acrylic artist ink.

 ''Cherished Moments''

The second layout was also made with 7dots Studio papers from the ''Cotton Candy Dreams'' collection, Prima Marketing flowers and some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays and powders.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...

And a closer look at the details...

 I gave texture on the background with modeling paste and a stencil.
 Then, I added some color with ''South Shore Sand'', ''Steampunk Sepia'' and
 ''Cremme Brulee Cream'' Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.

 I heat embossed the pieces from the ''Circular Leafy Frame'', the title and the
''Leafy Silhouettes'' chipboards with ''Queen Sheba's Silver'' Lindy's powder.
The ''Groovy Flowers'' were also embossed with ''Cafe au Lait'' powder.

When everything was glued down, I added some plum beads with gel medium.

That's all for today my friends!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

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.
