Our Story Layout for ***2Crafty Chipboard*** & Playing with this months challenge at *Dress My Craft* !!

Hi lovely creative peeps, 
Hope you are enjoying your day! I am always in my happy place while creating for 2Crafty Chipboard and all their lovely chipboard designs I just can't imagine to not use their chipboards on my work as they are so detailed and wonderfully designed. For this layout I have used some papers by 49 and Market as I was dying to digg in and again they don't disappoint. They are such a great fit together that I started a new page already. For this layout I have used a picture of my husband & I at a party called "Sensation White" way back {feels like a lifetime ago} enjoy my post.... 

Our Story:

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



This time I haven't treated the chipboard pieces a lot since I didn't want them to be shiny or have a lot of color. The nested cog frame that I used around my photo is the only piece that I wanted to stand out from my work so that one I gessod two times with white gesso & used embossing powder on{blue with a pink shimmer on it} 


I have used the large one of the square barbed wire frames and just gessod it with two layers of white gesso and the cut it in pieces to later add them on my nested cog frame after that I used some charcoal black wax what I also did with the rest of my chipboard pieces. 


Only on the gears I used a thin layer of gesso and left some parts of them a little more raw. For the bulldog clips I just added a word from the 49 and Market collection that I raised up with some foam tape. To soften my page I added some white spray & matte white wax. 


With this layout I will be participating in this months challenge on the Dress My Craft Facebook Group you had to be inspired by the winner of last month she made a lovely card for a wedding. I was inspired by the word "Blessed" as I am very blessed to be married to this lovely man, next saturday the 20th we are married for 12 years and I am still happy in love the other part that got me inspired are the cute roses on the bottom of her card.

"Spring Vibes" First Journaling Pages Playing at ***Lindy's Gang March 2024 Color Challenge***!

Hi lovely friends,
I would like to share with you my first journal pages ever it felt a lot like making a scrapbook page but then smaller ;-) {I kinda love it} I just couldn't let the march color challenge go by without making something else I love the "Alexandra's Artist" set so much it makes my heart happy....
I have used all the colors of the set!

Spring Vibes:

I totally love these colors from the set but I have my favorites like "Tara's Wild Malve" &
"Jana's Jade" with the last one I added a stencil on my background just by adding that color to my white crackle paste with a little water. Then I used a script stencil also the same way as before I only added the "Martina's Marigold" to my paste. 

This color challenge gave me such spring vibes that I used the pretty new collection here and there on my pages by Prima Marketing called "In Full Bloom" I also used some different flowers by prima and a older stamp designed by Valerie Ouellet that she disgned back in 2017 for 49 and Market. 


I also added some rubons to both my pages and some cute little eggs that I bought at Temu and I cute them in half and coloured them with some of colors from the set. Then I added them to my flower clusters. 



After I added the stencils I took out my whole set and water colored on the background which I also did for the first time and I also added some water oh that was very fun to do ;-)  Now for some close ups look below...



I also added some beautiful flower & leaf stamps and colored them with the set then I added some phrases from Tim Holtz 



And also some phrases from the "In Full Bloom" collection I had a lot of fun creating these pages I hope you enjoyed my post. 

This is the color challenge at Lindy's Gang Blog beautiful colors & happy spring feeling. For this color challenge we had to use the pretty Alexandras Artists Magicals Set which has such gorgeous spring like soft toned colors that I could not resist playing a second time.

Love at First Sight Layout for ***2Crafty Chipboard***!

Hi lovely creative peeps, 
Hope you are enjoying your day! I am always in my happy place while creating for 2Crafty Chipboard and all their lovely chipboard designs. For this layout I have used an older paper collection {2010 to be exact} by "Webster Pages" which is still one of my favorite manufacturers from back then. I of course used another cute picture of our little Abbey! Enjoy my post.....

 Love at First Sight:

All the chipboard pieces are treated with white gesso after that I altered them in different ways for the phrase I have used white embossing powder and after that I added some wax. The feathers I colored with some spray paint & matte acrylic paint and also some wax.

The clock faces are treated with brown matte acrylic paint and some metallique paint and in the end with some coral wax. The beautiful corner I just gessod and then stampt on it with one of my favorite stamps that has little dots on it. The pram set is so cute I altered it with some magicals and posca pens.

I gave all the chipboard pieces two coats of white gesso and then I altered them in different ways.

I also did that with the arrow and the word "Love"



For the dotted circle frame I also altered it with matte acrylic paint & spray paints and when that was dry I added flatback crystals to match my embroidery hoop. The swirls and leaves are treated with some sprays, metallique paints & posca pens in different colours. I finished of my hoop by adding some white spray.

My Sunshine August 2023 Mixed Media Layout for ***2Crafty Chipboard***!!

Hello to all my lovely friends,

I am so happy you are visiting my blog today for this post I made a layout again. 
For this layout I have used tons of amazing chippies and a picture of Abbey on the beach in Greece August 2023. I really enjoy working with all the pretty chipboard pieces by 2Crafty Chipboard and the amazing new "The Beach is Calling" collection by Graphic 45 wow
 I had so much fun creating this layout that I am going to make another one hahaha enjoy my post...

My Sunshine August 2023:

All the chipboard pieces are treated with white gesso on the seashells I used some matte acrylic paint and on the edges I added some brown wax to mimic the rocks in the picture. I couldn't help myself while I was creating this layout I kept on adding more and more chippies. I cut out the word "Sunshine" out of the beautiful phrase "Your Smile is Like Sunshine Title" but firstly I wanted to use the whole phrase but it became to cluttered on my work so I left the rest out. 

On the photo adornments & reeds I added some white crackle paste and later I added some spray paint and matte acrylic paints to make them look a little weathered. The word sunshine was coloured in three different colors white, light blue and dark blue to match my layout. 


The seahorse I coloured in three different colors I used some waxes & several acrylic paints. On the backgound of my layout I added some coloured crackle paint which I coloured with magicals powders. I also altered the flowers myself to fit my layout and in the end I added some white spray paint, art stones & some antique jewels. 

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