First 2 Crafty Post

Here is my first blog post as a resident guest designer for 2 Crafty!!
I have 3 layouts to show this time around all showcasing the awesome 2 crafty pieces you can purchase!
Now I have to admit when it comes to chipboard I tend to leave it raw. So I may not have awesome techniques for you to dress up your chipboard but I hope I inspire you to want to add these gorgeous pieces to your work also!!
So I thought I would start with a Christmas layout since we have all probably taken a heap of photos!
 I'm not a traditionalist when it comes to scrapping my Christmas photos in fact I tend to steer clear of most Christmas themed products! With this in mind I wanted to show you this Christmas layout that doesn't have any traditional Christmas products which you could adapt to any other themed layout!!

I did a crazy photo shoot with my kids by setting up a small photo booth scenery with props! This is my son Will playing up to the camera!! I loved this pose and when I saw it I knew that the perfect embellishment was these cool light bulbs!!!!
                                          I have simply coloured them in with a black sharpie!!

I have also used this awesome sqiggle border piece which I sprayed with white Dylusions mist and then doodled on top with a black pilot permaball pen!

And of course one of my favourite pieces of all times are the chevrons! I can't get enough of them!!!This time I left them raw.
This layout is a bit of a fun one of Selfies of myself and my daughter!! Selfies are so much fun and therefore I think the layout should depict that!
What better embellishment for selfie photos but these cute cameras!!!

I have left the camera untouched except for some black pen work on the edges with my permaball pen. 
The same applies to my loopy font "smile" title. I LOVE this font and I just added some black lines to it to highlight on my layout! 
I have also added to this layout one of the tiny funky frames....
I have just roughly dabbed some white paint onto it and placed it over my photo! Simple and easy embellishment! 
The last layout I want to share with you is one that I created for a challenge site called "Scrap the Girls".
It is a layout in which you had to use 3 photos or more. I have scrapped this layout of my daughter Maya planting our first vegetable garden! 

Thanks for popping by Eb xx
