Enjoy the journey -2Crafty Chipboard-

Hello everyone! 
This is my first DT project for 2Crafty Chipboard this month.
I thought it was about time for me to make a masculine post featuring my hubby Rob!

ENJOY THE JOURNEY


Started this project by glueing some grid bits.
Painted them with gesso and let it dry.
Added the paints and did some stamping.
All touched with some gesso to let the chipboard stand out.

Embossed the filmstrip with black powder.
Had this powder for a long time and it didn't work as it normally should have done, 
but I kinda love that powdery look! 

Added another grid piece and painted with some colors.

Added some splatters.

The word title got a coat with some gesso first and then some turquoise paint.

The painted gears and some threads for extra texture.

The grid bits make a great background!

CREATE - triptych - 2Crafty Chipboard

Today I have a fun triptych.
This is my second project this month for 2Crafty Chipboards.

CREATE DREAMS
CREATE HAPPINESS
CREATE MAGIC
Here I used three mini canvases.
I created some texture with torn pieces of plaster tape.
Once dry, I glued down the chipboard pieces.
Added all the colors and a finishing touch with some gesso and splatters.

A light coat with some gesso on these chippies to let them stand out more.

I also added some of the plaster on this wooden heart piece to give it more texture.
Painted the heart and used a gloss medium as a final coat.

I cut the chipboards pieces to let them flow onto the next canvas.

Here I used a negative piece of the chipboard.

This arrow word got a coat with gesso first and colored with a black marker.

just breathe...art journal page

Hello everyone!
Today I want to share another art journal page with you.

JUST BREATHE
This page was again made with plaster tape (see photo below).
Tore up some plaster pieces and glued them on the page to create a little nature scenery.
Added the paint colors and once dry I used a few floral stamps.
Used some gesso to let the textures of the plaster stand out more.

The plaster tape from a local hobby store.
It's a bit messy but I really love the result! :) 

Just love the texture!


Stamping in a few colors to create some depth.






Enjoy your day and remember....

Canvas/layout "love" -2Crafty Chipboard-

A canvas layout with a photo of my oldest daughter.
She just left the nest last year and is planning her wedding for this July. So exciting!

LOVE

For this project I also used chipboard to create some texture.
Here I used the Circle Lace Panel which I cut up in small pieces and placed them around my canvas.
Painted all with gesso before adding all the paints.
Once dry, I used a sponge to give it a coat with some gesso.

Added the gesso after the paints, to let the chipboard stand out more.
Placed a pearl in some centers.

A piece of the Lattice Leaf set.

Added some threads to create more texture.

A lovely small Sharon butterfly.

The Lucy frame got a coat with gesso first.
Painted the frame and added some embossing powder.
Randomly added some gesso as a final touch.

This piece of the fine word set got a coat with black acrylic paint.

A lovely tulle flower.

A small cluster of chipboard, threads and flowers on the top of the canvas.

Even the smallest pieces of the chipboard can be used!
This is a piece of the circle lace panel.
