Hello all! I am here today to share a fun boy's layout  that I have created for you. 'Hello Cheeky' 2Crafty products used: For this layout, I have used one of the  'Film Strips Tiny' , that I have embossed in white, and tucked under the edge of my photo.  I have also used one of the  'Bubble Clumps' , again finished in white embossing powder, that I have tucked into my layers. One of my favourites is the  'Triangle Clusters - Tiny' , and I have used a couple of them on my layout, finished in white.  For my title, I have used one of the words from the    'Mini Word Set 4',  also finished in white,  that I have layered with one of the titles from my papers I love using dark background papers for my layouts, as it really makes the white and colours pop! I hope that this has inspired you to get 2Crafty today. Until next time! Lisa xo

Hello all! I am here today to share some 2Crafty inspiration with you. As we have just started SPRING (my personal favourite ;)) in our part of the world, I thought something bright and fun would be ideal! Sunshine and Blue Skies 2Crafty Products used: For this layout, I have started with a bit of a colourful splash around on my page. I have then built up my layers,  including one of the  'Leafy Shrub Set 2'  designs, that I have finished in a bright multicolour of paints,  coordinated with my papers. I have also used one of the  'Fern Leaf Set', that I have finished in aqua paint to match.  I have also used one of the  'Charlotte Flowers' , that I have finished in bright pink paint.  I love how delicate these flowers are, and so pretty! Finally, I have used the  'Sunshine & Blue Skies'  title, that I have painted in a two-tone yellow and aqua,  to match my layout. I love how these pieces can bring sunshine to a page! I hope that you like what I hav

Hello all! I am here today to share some inspiration with you. I was lucky enough to recently attend a mixed media class at Shelley's Land,  with the oh so talented, and hilarious,  Antonis Tzanidakis . I learnt some fabulous techniques and created a gorgeous steampunk seahorse panel. I have created this octopus panel with the same style and theme  so that I can hang them in my art room. For this panel, I used some of the fabulous new 2Crafty industrial steampunk designs.  I am so happy with how this turned out that I just had to share it with you all! 2Crafty Products used: I have used some of the awesome  'Industrial Pipes/Mechanics'  that I have painted red, and then used an antiquing paste to distress.  I have also used some of the  'Steampunk Gears Medium'  and  'Steampunk Gears Small' , that I have finished in either red or brown to suit the theme. I have also used a couple of the  'Giant Gears'  to use in my background, also painted red and d

  Hello all! I am here today to share some 2Crafty inspiration with you. I have created a set of two cards. 2Crafty Products: For my first card, I used two of the corners from the  'Corner Mini Set 1' . I first painted them white and then applied some crackle paste for texture. I then used an antiquing paste to distress the corners. I have also used this technique to finish one of the  'Element Set 1' ,  that I have added into my layers. I have also used one of the  'ATC Word Banner Set 1' , that I have then layered onto my card. For my second card, I have again used some of the  'Corner Mini Set 1' , that I have again finished in a crackle and antique pastes. I have then used one of the ' Lace Squares' , which I have layered in a frame from my papers, and some florals.  I have then added some dimension, and layered in one of the sentiments from the  'ATC Word Banner Set 1' . I hope that you like what I have created,  I will be back soon
