October Inspiration "Cherish" for 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Vintage Canvas

Hello there..
Back on 2Crafty Chipboard blog today with my october inspiration. I created a vintage style mixed media canvas and used some beautiful chipboard pieces from 2Crafty.

I created lots of layers on a small sized box canvas using different elements and incorporated the chippies therein. Flowers and other few metal elements I have used from Prima Marketing.
I chose corners and flourish designs of chippies for this project.

I started with scrap pieces of papers, cheese cloth and laces, followed by adding the chippies and flowers. I love to be asymmetric in my projects and in this one I kept the elements popping out on all four sides of the canvas. The box canvas gave my design an added dimension.
For all the chipboard pieces here, I have applied finnabair's wax in "white gold" after a layer of white gesso for the vintage look and dull finish on the project.
For the finishing touches, as always, I love adding art stones, micro beads and some glitter.

For the love of Autumn - A mini Album

Hello there..

Autumn is here with all its magic. Nature blends into the beautiful color palette and it is the time that inspires so much. I created a 6*6 album using "Botany" collection from Fabrica Decoru, that I had received as a GDT package last year. The package consisted of some gorgeous papers and die cuts.

The whole process was fun totally enjoyable, creating each page and adding those tiny details. I designed the cover with multiple shabby chic layers, using fabric, book pages, scrap pieces, chippies, die cuts and more. Nature has so much beauty and inspiration in every season, but autumn is my favourite as it inspires me more with all its gorgeous colours.

September inspiration "Shine" for 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Layout 

Hello there..
I am here today with my second inspiration for September.
Autumn is here and the climate is full of yellows and browns.. so is my layout for today.

I have used some lovely chippies from 2Crafty and incorporated them with my layers. I love the script words chippies, they are my favourite. Here I picked "Shine" to suit the theme of my layout.
This time I chose to keep my chippies in their original colour and I loved the outcome.
Check out detailed pictures and a video tutorial too.

September Inspiration "Once upon a dream" for 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Canvas
 "Once Upon a Dream"

Hello there..
I am on 2Crafty Chipboard blog today with my first project for September. I created a Mixed Media Canvas
 using some gorgeous chipboard pieces from 2Crafty Chipboard and various mediums, paints and embellishments from Finnabair.

 I started by spreading a generous amount of crackle paste on the base as I love to create textures on my canvas. Then I added some more texture with modelling paste and a stencil.
For my first layer, I used some wooden circles that I had grabbed from some stationary shop long time back. Next I stuck a couple of brushes for creating dimension. I then covered it all with heavy white gesso. Then I added some color with finnabair's rust paste and metallique acrylic paint in "golden moss", which is one of my most favourite colors in this range. I used a water spray to spread the color.
Creating a textured background and having a focal element is my favourite in mixed media and here
my focal point is Dreamcatchers and the title.. I layered all the three pieces
of the Dream catchers chippies on top of each other for more depth and dimension.

I prepared my chippies with Finnabair's Metallique sparks in "unicorn's hair".
 I used an ordinary kitchen foam to apply the color over the chippies and loved the shine. They coordinated well with my background.
I layered various metal embellishments and some flowers that I coloured the same as my background shades.
Next I gave a touch Finnabair's waxes on all the metal elements to pop them up.
Finally added art stones and some background stamp to finish off.
Some more detailed pictures..
