Love Your Gorgeous Smile Embroidery Hoop for *2Crafty Chipboard* & Playing at *Lindy's Gang March 2024 Color Challenge*!!!

 Hello my lovely friends, 

I am so happy you are visiting my blog today for this post I made a embroidery hoop. I really enjoy working with all the pretty chipboard pieces by 2Crafty Chipboard. For this hoop I have of course used a photo of Abbey and I wanted to give you all a spring feeling with my hoop. Enjoy my post....

Love Your Gorgeous Smile:

2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Circle Dot Frames
Leafy Shrub Set 2
Arrow Word Set 2
Your Smile is Like Sunshine
Fine Word Set 2
Hand Drawn Flowers

I gave all the chipboard pieces two coats of white gesso and then I altered them in different ways. The title "Your Smile" was coloured with several matte acrylic paints and the word "Gorgeous"  I gave two layers of white embossing powder to make it a little shiny. 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.

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.

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:   

2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Intricate Seahorses
Your Smile is Like Sunshine Title
Seaweed Set 1
Seashells Set 2
Photo Adornment Flynn's Flourish
Photo Adornment Larinda's Flourish
Thin Square Stacked Frames
Industrial Spring Set
Achor & Buoy Set
Fine Word Set - Months

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

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
