April Inspiration projects by Jaya Raghuvanshi

Hello 2Crafty fans! 

Hope you all are doing great.. Well, I want to share something with you all. Today is my last post here. I have had the most amazing two years with the fabulous team at 2Crafty chippies. I really hope you liked all my the layouts and tutorials I made for 2Crafty. I hope you will continue to remain in touch with me on my social media accounts. 

So, today I have a few layouts to share with you all. Hope you like them 


Some close ups-

The Pointed doily frame chipboard is so so gorgeous! I covered this chipboard in white paint and then lightly added some teal watercolor to it and lightly stamped on it using black archival ink. It adds so much beauty to this page here.

 I  also used the Tahnya's border chippie and painted it in white and teal. I added some texture to it using art stones.

The Line words are one of my favourite chippies. You should get them all! They look just fabulous running across the page and they go along with all styles of scrapbooking.

2Crafty Chipboards used-

Line words- Happiness borders

I made this page as my GD Post for More Than Words Challenge. The theme this month was black white+ 1 and "Dream"

Some close ups-

The Geo Panel chipboard  has been covered in black gesso and I splattered some teal and white on it.

And here is my second project: A fun triptych


Here I used three mini canvasses.

Once dry, I glued down the chipboard pieces.
Added all the colors and a finishing touch with some gesso and splatters.

A light coat with some gesso on these chippies to let them stand out more.

I also added some of the plaster on this wooden heart piece to give it more texture.
Painted the heart and used a gloss medium as a final coat.

I cut the chipboards pieces to let them flow onto the next canvas.

Here I used a negative piece of the chipboard.

This arrow word got a coat with gesso first and colored with a black marker.

April Inspiration by Debbie

Hi everyone!
  Debbie here with you today to share my April projects for 2Crafty Chipboard!

"Happiness Is This"

Since it is Spring here where I live and some of the bushes and flowers are blooming,
 I wanted to create a colorful layout.  I used a picture of my friend's daughter from a
few years back.  Thought the picture was the perfect fit for the title. I applied some
roses with a stencil to the background and some pink mist.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
happiness is this
Fine Stem Frames
Flourish Adornment Set 3

On both sides of the photo I used the Flourish Adornment Set 3. I normally like to emboss the chipboard pieces on my layouts, but used a different technique for this layout.  I covered them with gesso and then colored them with a light green mousse and a sprinkling of green glitter.
 I cut apart the smaller frame from the Fine Stem Frames set, covered it with gesso and
 them applied some pink peony mousse and placed the pieces among the flowers.

Love the dainty title.  I covered it with gesso and applied pink peony mousse.

My next layout was inspired by the picture I used, which I found on Pinterest.


I misted the background paper and applied several stamps, some masking and paint splatters.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Butterfly Flourish
Fine Word Set 2
Element Set 1
Mini Flourish Bits

I love the details in the Butterfly Flourish! I embossed it with purple and
 gold and added some gold micro beads for dimension.

To the left and right of the picture I placed pieces from the Mini Flourish Bits.  I
 embossed them with a mixture of purple and gold embossing powders and added
 some gold mico beads.

Above the picture I used a piece from the Element Set 1, embossed with a
mixture of purple and gold embossing powders.

The title timeless is from the Fine Word Set 2.  I embossed it with some
light purple embossing powder.

I hope that I have inspired you.
I'll see you next month!

Karine's April Shares and a Video Tutorial

Hi crafty friends, It's my turn today to share my April inspirations here on the 2Crafty blog. I don't know why,
 I seem to gravitate towards purple this month. My first layout is called «Treasure» and
it showcases an old picture of my father when he was about 16 years old.


I used clear gesso to cover the whole background paper. Then, I used two shades of metallic
acrylic paint. When everything was dry, I used black archival ink to stamp some numbers
and some checkered patterns. I finally used black modeling paste through a square stencil.

To anchor my composition, I used some of the 6'' Clock Face Frames,
 which I embossed with purple embossing powder.

Here and there, under my clusters, I scattered some of the  
Checkerboard Clumps pieces, that were embossed in black.

At the end, I used some micro beads on my my background, and some embellishments.

My title piece, the word «Treasure», is from the Mini Word Set 1. I embossed it in copper.

"This Girl"
My second layout features my daughter. I can't believe how fast
she grew up: she's already reading!

On my background, I used some clear gesso all over.
(I forgot to show this step in the video tutorial, sorry!)
I then spread some white gesso to create the area where I'll spread some color.

Some modeling paste, shimmering paints, sprays, stamps
and ink were used to create the background.

My main composition is built around the beautiful Ava's Frames piece.
 I painted it with purple metallic acrylic paint.

I used flowers, die-cuts leaves and flair badges to embellish my layout.

I thought it looked good, but I wanted to add another piece of chipboard, painted in
 blue metallic acrylic paint, this time, so I went for one Heart Charms piece.

I placed it towards the bottom of my picture. All around the main cluster, I used some
micro beads, some glass glitter and other mica flakes to add texture.

My title piece is the This Girl chipboard, which I painted with the same
 purple metallic acrylic paint that I used before.

I made a video tutorial to share my creative process with you.
 I hope you enjoy it.
