Brothers make the best Friends layout for ***2Crafty Chipboard***!!!

 Hello fellow creative souls, 
I am so excited that you are here with us today as I bring you some inspiration with pictures from our summer vacation trip to Greece where we had a lovely time. For my base I used a vinyl record the size about 11,5 inches that I then decorated with beautiful 2Crafty chipboard pieces. 

Brothers make the best Friends: 

 2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Round Flourish Frame
Clock Face Frames
Circle Word Tag Set 1
Fine Word Set Months
Artdeco Frame
Felicity Flourish
Flourish Adornment Set 5
Brothers are the Best Friends





The yellow frame on the top was painted with acrylic paint and after that I sprayed some golden spray over it. The wonderful phrase was treated with the same yellow paint as the frame but then I added three different golden sprays on it. The little clockface was painted with black gesso and some golden coloured sprays and I finished it off with some glossy accents.


The big clockface was first treated with a layer of black gesso then I added two different waxes on it to make it shine a little bit and give it a little color, it's a brushing technique which is so settisfying to do. On the rest of the chipboard pieces I added two layers of white gesso before I altered them further. The green chipboard pieces are treated with some green spray & then I blow dried it while spraying them love that effect. On the Artdeco frame I did the brush technique with some white gesso and in the end some vintage golden 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!

Nice Moments Layout for ***ScrapAndMe***!!!

 Hello lovely creative friends, 

For today's inspiration I created a 12 by 12 layout with Abbey's first school picture, her with a big smile like I know her. Normally when we take pictures of her at a photographer she always puts her hands in front of her eyes or makes angry faces. That's why was a little surprised when I saw this sweet picture. 

Smile {Nice Moments} 

I used a punch from Martha Stewart for the darker pink sheet which I then hand stitched the rest of the stitching is done with a sewing machine. I used a stencil, some flowers and a mould to create the rest of the layout and off course some fussy cut elements.

Creepy & Cute panel for ***2Crafty Chipboard*** & Playing at ***Lindy's Gang***!!!

 Hello sweet friends, 
I am so happy you are here with me today....this time I bring you some mixed media inspiration. This panel was created with all gorgeous 2Crafty chippies and some moulds it was made for a challenge with the theme "Creepy & Cute. I off course used a picture of Abbey as a little baby for the cute part.

Creepy & Cute: 

2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Anna's Flourish
Cassie's Flourishes 
Flourish Adornment Set 5
Foliage Set 6
Steampunk Gears Medium
Steampunk Gears Small
Mini Word Set 3



I altered some of the chipboard pieces with black gesso {on the creepy side} then I added some waxes that I brushed on them. On the other pieces I used white gesso and on some of them sprays {which I blow dried} and on the others some effect paste. The spraying gives it such a fun effect like water drops.


On the beautiful "Cassie's Flourishes" I added a layer of crushed ice effect paste to make it sparkle a little bit, but it is not really visible on the pictures sadly. To finish my work I added some flowers & white spray. 


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!

Spring Card for ***ScrapAndMe***!!!

 Hello lovely ScrapAndMe friends, 
For today's inspiration I created a single card made with leftover pieces of paper but most of the papers I used are from the Pink Blossom 2 collection. It's a very simple and easy card to make it took me less then 15 minutes sometimes it's nice to make fast works. 

Spring: 



I have used the word "Spring" on my card as I love that time of the year the letters are made with a very old tool {colluzzle} that I used very ofter way back when I began this creative journey. Hope you will like my card.

Love to leave a little sparkle wherever you go canvas for **Mixed Media Place** Guest Designer August 2022 + Playing along with **Lindy's August Color Challenge**!!

 Hello dear creative friends, 
 I am very excited to show you my project,that I made for the quarterly challenge at the Mixed Media Place blog as their guest designer. For this accasion I made a mixed media panel size 30cm by 10cm.
On my panel I used a bunch of new Finnabair moulds which I first treated with black gesso like I did with my background. The background took a day to dry because I added some of the clear crackle texture paste on it and I wanted it to dry naturally since is was very hot the last week.


Love to leave a little sparkle wherever you go: 

I tend to find it very hard to not use a color palette or a mood board since they always inspire me so much. So I used the Lindy's Stamp Gang color challenge as my inspiration to create this for my guest designer spot at Mixed Media Place


I added a text stencil with the modeling paste and when that was dry I added two layers of black heavy gesso. After that I took out my moulds and made the ones I used with resin (I prefer that over other modeling material) 




Also before I did all of the above I pick out my flowers first which I treated with different sprays & mica powders. When the moulds were dry I used a couple of the waxes & some purple acrylic paint for the backside of the light bulbs. Then I put everything in place how I liked it and voila it's ready and the last thing I did was add some white splatters. 

With this canvas I will be entering this months color challenge at the Lindy's Facebook Page
I really love the colors this month look at this pretty example: 


I hope I have inspired you with my project. And see you play along at the Mixed Media Place blog and have fun!
Have a gorgeous & creative day,
