Never Change Canvas for *** Lindy's January 2024 Color Challenge***!!

 Hello my lovely friends, 
Today I am here with you to share a mixed media panel, this time I used a 30cm by 10cm and I placed it on the side. For this canvas I used a whole bunch of moulds by prima marketing. I also used the magical shakers in diffrent ways I will explain that later in my post. For this canvas I didn't use a picture which is exceptional for me haha but I managed 

Never Change: 

I am a sucker for the sprays by Lindy's Gang I use them on almost every layout for this canvas I also used three of the sprays which I will list below. I am relative new on how to use the shakers but what I did on this canvas was....the branches I treated with some white gesso and whie that was still wet I added the magical shaker in the color {Gustav's Gold Leaf} and used my dabber to get it smoothly into the sureface then I added a little water and the {Alive & Kissing Cobalt} to get more depht in my branches. 


Lindys's Stamp Gang products used: 
Kissing Klimt Flat Shaker Set {I used all five} 
Gustav's Gold Leaf
Alive & Kissing Cobalt
Every Picture Teals & Story 
Das Werk Wine
Kissin' Couple Crimson



On the background of my canvas I used some crackle paste & the other tree colors and also the golden color. On the cute little birds I used almost the same technique as I did on the branches but then I dipped my pencil in the powder and placed it on the birds for that I used the {Das Werk Wine & Kissin' Couple Crimson}



On both fames I used the watercolor technique so I added some water with some of the powder in a bottle and sprayed it on the frames then I dried it with a heatgun and the I added more powder and used a brush and some water...then I did that a couple of times until I had the color I wanted. 


Thank you so much for your visit I hope you like my work & if you would like to know something please let me know. 

Have a great day & much

Love Forever Happiness Layout for ***2Crafty Chipboard*** & Playing at ***LemonCraft January Moodboard!!!

Well hello fellow crafters, 
I am very glad you are visiting my blog today, I just love creating with 2Crafty Chipboard pieces & I love creating with as much of them as possible. So for this layout I went all feminine with a couple of my favorite colors & eight different chippies, enjoy my post! Oh and I used a picture of my husband & daughter last summer in Greece....

Love Forever Happiness:  

2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Window Shutter Set 4
Line Words - Happiness
Leafy Shrub Set 1
6x6 Clock Face Frames
Amelia's Frames 
Mini Word Set 2
Squiggly Circle Arrow Journal Spots
Fine Word Set 1


You know what's amazing, you can order directly from the
2Crafty website here so you can also play with their amazing chipboard pieces.




I prepaired all my chipboard pieces with white gesso as I normally do but for all of the chippies I used a different technique let me explain. For the pretty window shutters I used some rustic paint {white sand} which has a sand like structure and applying it is very easy. After that I added some colors with a matte finish and some white wax. 


The clock face frame & amelia frame atre both firstly sprayed with spray paint and then I added some acrylic paint & three different color waxes. 
The words I embossed with different colors and the word "Happiness" I two toned it so it give it more demension. I also embossed the "squiggly circle arrow journal spots" with some pink embossing powder. 


And for the leafy shrub set I used some spray paint and two different acrylic paints and later on I added some wax. I also did a lot of fussy cutting forthis layout now I know why I love doing that it relaxes the mind haha..


With this layout I will be entering this months challenge at the Lemon Craft Inspirations Facebook page and this below is their gorgeous moodboard where I got my inspiration from for this layout I made. I have used the pretty "Secret Garden" collection.  

Thank you so much for visiting my blog I sure hope you like my work as much as I love making them.

I used a older picture of Abbey and me that I thought would go great with the title
"All Smiles"! All the chipboard pieces are treated with a layer of white gesso.

 clear text stamp with some brown ink. 


I also used the brown ink for the edges of the "All Smiles" phrase and the ATC banner
 and for the last one I highlighted the word with a gel pen. The foliage was
 treated witth some green acrylic paint and some white matte wax. In the end
 I added some crystal drops to the circles on the flourish frame & some white spray paint.

So glad you are visiting this amazing blog, I really love creating with beautiful chipboard pieces like these. For today I have another 12 by 12 layout as those are my favorites to make. This time I made a wintery layout {my favorite to make} I used two pictures of Abbey in the snow back in 2021.

The Magic of Snow



The beautiful "Christmas Frame 1" was altered with some true snow by {aleene's} after I firstly gessod all my pieces. After that I added some white & pink spray. I really love to alter my chippies with sprays because of the stainlike look. In the middle of the snowflakes I added a pearl drop and the word winter is altered with some white embossing powder. 


I cut up the "Snowball Tree" in several pieces and tuck them in my flower cluster they are altered with some wowzers white embossing powder and on the balls I added some nuvo crystal drops. The title was treated with some sprays and wax.


The "Corner Crackle" has to be my favorite piece of 2Crafty Chipboard I tuck that one underneath my first picture. and that one was also altered with some true snow and white spray. The "Twig Branches" I sprayed them with green sprays. All the products used but for the chippies are by 49 and Market.
