January Inspiration "Happiness" for 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Layout


Hello dear friends..

I am back with my January inspiration for 2Crafty Chipboard and created a winter layout using my favourite 2Crafty chipboards and other mixed media supplies.

I used the circle stack chippies and they form the main design elements in my layout along with the line word "Happiness".
The paper is from 7Dots Studio 9th wave collection and my Layout is inspired by their current challenge as well as the current challenge of Mixed Media & Art.

I worked on the background with some scrap papers, washi and masking tape, followed by clear  gesso. Then I added some more texture with sand paste and stencil. Next was the color splash of lindy's and finally some random background stamping for added texture.

Chippies: I applied white gesso to circle pieces and distressed the edges.
For the line word, I used White embossing powder from Lindy's.
For the Fine Leafy Bush chippie, I applied a layer of gesso, followed by distress spray in "walnut stain".

For embellishing more, I used flowers, die cut leaves and some Metal embellishments.
As final touches, I added some white Nuvo drops and Finnabair's art stones.

Fine Leafy Bush
Line word "Happiness"

Inspiration for MTW Challenges January 2019

Mixed Media Layout 
"Motherhood Goals" 

Hello there.. 
Today I am really excited to reveal my first inspiration project as DT for More Than Words Challenges in 2019. A unique concept of combining a word inspiration and creative challenge. To start the new year, we have the word inspiration "Goals" and the creative challenge is to add journaling in your project in any form.

I created a Mixed Media Layout featuring my daughter's picture and stating a few lines for her in printed form, counting them as my motherhood goals.

I worked on my background using Lindy's sprays, Finnabair's Modelling paste and background stamps. Then I created several layers with the photograph. I like to use old book pages in most of my projects and here also I have incorporated them in different ways.

I love to enhance the beauty of the floral embellishments in my layout and for that, I always prefer to color the flowers in coordination with the overall colour scheme and I love to colour the die cut leaves in different ways. Here I used Lindy's sprays and Finnabair's metallique acrylic paint to colour the leaves as well as the flowers.

To finish off,  I added lots of art stones and micro beads.

Supplies used:

Prima/Finnabair clear gesso
Prima/Finnabair modelling paste
stencil from Vicki Boutin
Background stamps by kaisercraft
Lindy's sprays: Mountain Lavender Gold 
                     Kissing Kenickie Coral
              Gator Gumbo olive
Prima/Finnabair Metallique acrylic paints: "Golden Moss"
                                                                         "Plum Preserves"
Flowers from wild orchid crafts
Distress ink pad "vintage photo"
Prima/Finnabair mini art stones
Prima/Finnabair micro beads "copper"

Hope you enjoyed the post and got inspired!!

Wishing you a very Happy New Year 2019

December Inspiration "Moment" for 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Canvas "Moment"

Hello there..

I am back with my December, more precisely, end of the year inspiration for you. 
I created a Mixed Media canvas using various steampunk chipboard pieces from
 2Crafty's fabulous new arrivals and other Mixed Media supplies.

I was quite a bit particular about the colour scheme for this canvas and wanted to stick
 to white, grey and turquoise. I am happy that I achieved the desired result.

Firstly I adhered the chipboard pieces of chicken barbed wire and gessoed them along 
with the base. I also mixed Finnabair's texture powder with white gesso. Then I 
stamped the background with random background stamps.

For the collage part, I picked three different steampunk pieces, lightbulb word and gears
 and coloured them grey by mixing a little bit of black gesso to the white one. I layered them along with other elements.

 I also added some highlight
 of Finnabair's wax in "Mystic Turquoise" to the chippies.
I stamped a couple of butterflies and cut them out to use as embellishments. 
I have embossed some parts of the paper elements and the canvas with Lindy's EP in "Desert moon turquoise".

As final touches, I added some highlights of white gesso and added distress glitter in "Pumice stone".

2Crafty supplies used:

Steampunk Collage
Steampunk Arrows
Lightbulb word set
Chicken barbed wire small
Medium gears
Giant gears
Steampunk strips

Other Supplies used:

Finnabair's heavy white gesso
Finnabair's Texture powder
Dina wakley Media Black gesso
Finnabair's Metallic Acrylic Paint "Mermaid Teal"
Lindy's EP "Desert Moon Turquoise"
Distress glitter "Pumice stone"
Prima Junkyard Findings Office Metals

With this project,I participate in Mixed Media Place December Challenge
I took inspiration from the colour palette, specifically Turquoise, white and greys.

Hope you enjoyed the post and got inspired!!
Wish you a very Happy New Year 2019

December Inspiration “Christmas Cheer” for 2Crafty Chipboard

Hello there..

So the best time of the year is here again with all its festivities and cheer, and I am
 back with my project for December, “Christmas Cheer” with video tutorial for you.
I prepared a layout and worked a bit out of my comfort zone with a bold coloured background.

I have used some coordinating chippies for this layout as it’s meant to be for the Christmas season.
 So here I used a wreath, lanterns and a title.
For the turkish lanterns and the title I have used Lindy’s
 embossing powder in “purely white”.
For the wreath I used “spanish moss green”. I loved the outcome as I wanted to
 stick to red green and white this time :)
More detailed pictures....

Check out the video tutorial..
