vacation - 2Crafty Chipboard

Hello everyone!
Today I have a vacation canvas to share with you.
This is my second DT project for 2Crafty Chipboard.


Made this project with a photo of our latest vacation to Greece.
We had the most perfect time on the small island of Skiathos.
I started this piece again by glueing some Chequerbox clumps chipboard.
Randomly added some modeling paste to create more texture in the background.
Painted with some blues to match the sea and a final touch with gesso.

I placed the vacation word along one shutter side.

Some paper flowers, a crocheted flower, art stones and some wool felt tucked in.

I bend the chequerbox clumps chipboard a bit to create a more loose effect.

The Leafy twig branches were lightly touched with some gesso.

Create canvas - 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi there creative friends!
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Today a mixed media canvas,
my first project for 2Crafty Chipboard this month.


Made this canvas by glueing the bubble clumps and the flourish chipboard on the canvas.
Added the embellishments and painted all with gesso.
Once dry, I added the colors with a bit of water to let the colors run.
Let this dry completely before the final touch with gesso.
All the chipboard got two coats with gesso.

The create word from the ATC words.

The bubble clumps chipboard with a coat of gesso to let them stand out more.

The flourish chipboard from the Flourish Adornment set 4.

The Addy Butterfly, all covered in gesso.

Some small art stones for extra textures.

gorgeous -2Crafty Chipboard-

And here is my second layout this month for 2Crafty Chipboard, 
 one with my oldest daughter, Tessa.
This sweet and beautiful girl got married last month! 
It was a beautiful wedding, all went well and the weather was just perfect!
I wanted to create a soft and elegant layout for she looked just so gorgeous.


Used some bits of the grid panel to create the background.
Added the soft and a bit shimmery paint.
All of the chipboard was painted with some gesso.

On this project I used three of the mini flourish set.

The grid panel with small grid for texture and some beads.

Some gesso on the flowers and beads.

Added some cabochons and some lace flowers.

beauty -2Crafty Chipboard-

Hello everyone!
I made a layout of my youngest, Yiscka.
A layout with bright colors to match her fun and sunny personality.


Started the background by applying modeling paste with a spatula.
Added the bright colors and some water to let them run.
I placed the lacy border vertically together with some pink threads.

Found some beautiful glass beads in my stash which matched the colors perfectly.

I added some paperclips in the same colors.

Tucked in some Lattice leaves, painted with some gesso.

The flourish was painted with some pink acrylic paint.

The lace border was painted with gesso and the word got a pink coat, applied with a small sponge.

The glass and wooden beads.

The flowers got a touch with some gesso.

Lovely textured background with the modeling paste using a spatula.

Two cards -2Crafty Chipboard-

And here is my second project this month for 2Crafty Chipboards.
Made these cards on card sized canvases.
These are great to work with as they hold the mediums perfectly!

For these cards I cut up the Turkish Lace panel and glued them on the small canvas cards.
Also glued some plaster tape for extra texture.
Added some art stones and gessoed the two cards before the paints.
Once dry, they got a touch with some gesso.

Here you can see the different between before and after the final touch with gesso.
I just love the much more softer look! :) 

With the plaster I created more texture.

The words got two coats with some gesso.

The art stones.

The butterfly was painted and I gessoed the edges.

The Turkish Lace Panel.

Hope you all got inspired by today's projects! :)
