July 2Crafty DT Work

Happy Sunday! Today's my turn to share my DT work at the 2Crafty blog. Here's my post.

"Sweet Smile"
 
I made this page for the More Than Words challenge, which asked us to use the 
word "smile" as inspiration as well as a sketch. This adorable photo features my best 
friend's daughter and her little girl, and they sure do have some sweet smiles!


The word "smile" came from the "Summertime" set, which has lots of different words. I colored it with two different teal stamp inks to get the right color to match the leaves in my floral paper and then coated it with clear embossing power to give it a glossy look. I couldn't resist using this cute little guy from the "Hedgehogs" pack on my page. I couldn't decide on a color for the hedgehog, 
so I decided to leave him raw, but I added clear embossing powder to give him extra interest. The arrow, gessoed white, came from the "Assorted Arrows" sheet. I topped it with a wee heart from "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars" and inked it pink.


I coated the "Bubble Clumps" with gesso and then painted it with Twinkling H2O's in the 
Icicle color, which has flecks of glitter in it. I added patterned paper onto my frame form the "Polaroid Assortment Frames" to give it a woodgrain look. I popped a couple of raw, clear embossed hearts from the "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars" to match my hedgehog onto the frame.


I just love 2Crafty's Circle Words, and I used the word "sweet" from "Word Circles Set 1" as part
 of my title. I used the Icicle Twinkling H2O's on the circle part and the same ink and clear embossing powder I used for the "Smile." I added a heart from "ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars."

"You Are Simply the Best"
 
A girl at my school won a safety patrol award and her teacher asked me to make
 a scrapbook page for her.
 

The trophy came from the "Motocross" 6 x 6 set and was perfect for holding part of my title
 (the word "you" came from "Card Word Set 2") and also conveying what the layout was about.
 I used gold Zing embossing powder to give it sparkle and shine. I embossed the
 "Simply the Best" title with two different colors.


The "Chevron Bits" were embossed with the same Sapphire PEARLustre embossing powder
I used on the title. I used the same gold Zing embossing powder on the "ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars" as I did on the title. I found a larger star from the "Stars" set to tuck into the "Medium Filmstrip." The "Inspire" word came from the "ATC Words 1" set. I painted a "Circle Revolution" white to frame the photo the main photo.

 
Once you take the frames out of the sheet of "Polaroid Assortment Frames," you will have leftover chipboard that, when cut, form more frames. I used that to frame the above photo, I painted that white. There's a bag behind this cluster that holds more photos from the event. Finally, I used a date from the "2016's."
