Good Times Mixed Media Panel for ***2Crafty Chipboard***!!!

 Hi lovely Friends, 
On this grizzled day in my part of the world I bring you some summer vibes,
 because I for sure need it. For today's post I made a mixed media panel with three pictures of our Abbey on the beach in Greece last summer. I was planning on posting this panel for a challenge but then I thought I have used a bunch of beautiful 2Crafty Chippies that I could better post it as one of DT projects here. Enjoy my post....

Good Times:

 2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Intricate Seahorses
Seashells Set 2
Seaweed Set 1
So Much Fun Title
Industrial Spring Set
Line Words - Good Times




As you probably know by now I always gesso my chippies first most of the time I do two layers. I treated my two text chipboard pieces & the seahorses with two colors of embossing powder I jus really love that effect.



This wooden panel is 4 by 12 inch I just love to work with that size, a while back I saw a wonderful piece of art on pinterest with a whole bunch of frames {sadly I don't know the maker} After I saw that gorgeous piece I really wanted to make something like that myself. 
The rest of the chipboard pieces are decorated with embossing powders. I only left the beautiful seashells raw I only added some shimmer spray and a touch of white wax 


 Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely 2Crafty Chippies and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny week!

It's Time to Bloom Layout for ***2Crafty Chipboard***!!!

 Hi lovely creative peeps, 
I hope this post will find you well and that you are enjoying your day! Well I always enjoy my day while creating for 2Crafty Chipboard since I think it's unimaginable not to use their chippies on my work. For today I have layout to share with you all and this time it's a picture of Abbey and me after my by-pass surgery with a lot less kilo's to drag with me. I can't believe it's been eight months already I feel so much better now. 

It's Time to Bloom:

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



Most of the chipboard pieces are altered with two layers of white gesso and later on with some matte acrylic paints. After that I used a sponge on the leaves with some matte white wax. 


I cut the pharse "It's time to bloom" in two pieces and used it separate on my layout I altered it with some pink acrylic paint which I then used some brown wax on. The words are treated with two layers of white gesso {I always seem to do that hihi} and then added two layers of white embossing powders. 


Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely 2Crafty Chippies and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny week!

Altered Box for ***2Crafty Chipboard***!!!

 Well hello there crafty friends, 
I am very delighted you are her with me, for today I'd like to share a altered box that I created for my colleague who is leaving us to enjoy her well deserved pension. Although it's with a raw edge since she heard that her cancer is back since the beginning of march {throughout her bones this time} but that doesn't keep her from being a very positive lady and I really admire her for that and so much more. This box holds cards from her colleagues who worked with her a lot longer then me, since I started working there september 2023. But that doesn't mean I didn't make her a card,  I of course did and a nice box to hold them in, in her favorite color yellow. Enjoy this post.....


Amaze Yourself:

2Crafty Chipboard used:
Skeleton Leaves
BeeYoutiful Set
Oversized Flower Stem Set
Fine Word Set 2
Amaze Yourself
Mini Word Set 3


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 painted the oversized flower stem set with some spray paint and a pencil in defferent colors. But fistly I cut them up and only used pieces of them. For the skeleton leaves I used the same technique. Undertneath the big green piece of paper there is a picture of "Riek" but I wasn't sure if she wanted me to post it online so I didn't. 

The words & phrases are threated with two layers of white gesso after that I added some white shiny embossing powder {three layers} then I added some stained wood wax on all of tehm some a little more then the other. The beeyoutiful set was only altered with white gesso and tucked in flower clusters.

Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to take out your lovely 2Crafty Chippies and create and have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny week!

2 Tags for the 7 tags of Spring challenge at ***Tiets' Creatieve Wereld*** on Facebook!!!

 Hi lovely friends, 
Today I am posting two tags that I made for a challenge at a Dutch Facebook group called:
 Tiets Creatieve Wereld 
I thought is was a very fun challenge we had to make seven tags all created in a theme: 

Day 1} Butterflies 
Day 2} Flowers 
Day 3} Bee's
Day 4} "Hidden Message"
Day 5} Colour Pallette 
  Day 6} Spring Animals 
Day 7} use the word "Spring" on your tag 

In today's post I will show you day 4 & 7 the tags 3, 5 & 6 are already on my blog since they where also made for my DT work at 2Crafty Chipboard and 1 & 2 are for another DT enjoy my post....

Tag 4: 
Gentle as a Butterfly your Kindness Speaks to me: 

This is my "Hidden Message" tag for this tag I used the pretty "In The Moment" collection by Prima Marketing I am very excited to see Prima is making more collections without the golden & silver foil since I don't like that at all. Also the flowers are made to fit the colors of the papers but they are just the colors not the patterns I am also very happy with that....


I used two tags in my tag with two messages the first one is "Loving This Day" & "Gentle as a Butterfly your Kindness Speaks to me" these messages I used because I had my colleague in mind who is sick {her cancer is back} while making this tag. 





Tag 7

This is my tag use the word "Lente" of  "Spring" on your tag I of course used the last one.

Wildy Dreaming of Spring: 

 For this tag I used the pretty "Aquarelle Dreams" collection by Prima Marketing this collection makes my heart very happy since it's made with two of my favorite colors purple & aqua for this tag I also used a picture of our Abbey Jane, a mould by Finnabair {mirror frames} and the amazing Texture Stamp Set designed by Gabrielle Pollacco for 49 and Market back in 2016.


Don't you just love those water drops!! I am so much in love with them I use it very often but mostly on my layouts this is the first time I used it on a tag. 



Thank you so much for your visit today. And I sure hope that I have inspired you to be creative in some way and if I did that please have fun while doing so. Have a blessed & sunny week!
