June Inspiration with 2Crafty Chipboard


Mixed Media Altered Notebook Cover

Hello there..
Back today with my second inspiration for June on 2Crafty Chipboard.
I altered a notebook cover in mixed media style using a lot of mixed media supplies and some beautiful chipboard pieces from 2Crafty.


I started with applying gesso on the front and back covers, followed by texture crackle paste and more texture with stencil. 
Then I sprayed color using Lindy's Sprays in pink and brown.
I also embossed certain areas with white EP using a script stamp.



 I created a collage with various elements and used three different pieces of chipboard, layering them with other elements.
I chose to use Baroque design so to make everything come together with the background
where I used a Motifs design stencil.
For "My Happy Place" which appears as the focal element here, I embossed it with
 Golden Embossing Powder to make it stand out, and put it on the top most layer.



So for the Baroque Corners and Wendy's border, I applied a layer of gesso, followed
 by distressing and some stamping.
 I also embossed certain parts of Wendy's border with white Embossing Powder.
I used one of the Baroque corners on the back cover of the notebook.

May Inspiration continues with 2Crafty Chipboard

Mixed Media Layout - "Escape"


Hi there..
Back today with my second inspiration for May on 2Crafty Chipboard.
A mixed media layout that I created using some of my favourite chipboard pieces and more from Prima/Finnabair.


Historical buildings and ruins fascinate me a lot and so for this layout I used an old 
picture of a castle. For this layout I have used various Mixed Media supplies and
 different techniques on the 2Crafty chipboards.
I started with applying clear gesso on the base. Then I added texture with white crackle paste and stencil, followed by Finnabair Metallic Acrylic paint with a sponge.


I also added some background stamping.
Then I worked on my chipboard pieces. 
For the Ivy cluster, I used two shades of Embossing Powders - green and golden. 
I embossed them with green first and then the gold. 
For the Clock faces, Decorative rods and word title, I applied white gesso and then 
distressed the pieces with vintage brown ink. As a finishing touch I added som
gilding flakes on these pieces for a more rustic look. 



For the flowers, I used the same metallic paint as the base. 
After putting all the elements together, I moved on to embellish it a bit more with art pebbles. I applied a layer of Finnabair wax for the color to reflect. 
Then I added art stones and micro beads. Finally some white splatters.
