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!


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.

Art journal spread "peace" -2Crafty Chipboard-

Today an art journal spread as my first DT project this month for 2Crafty Chipboard.
I want to show you that these beautiful chippies are perfect to create some texture on your project! 


For this spread I used some plaster, chipboard, lace, mesh and fabric to create some texture.
Added some of my favorite colors and made a peaceful little scenery.
Just recently started Yoga and totally love it!

These Turkish Lace Panel chippies make great texture!

All of the plaster and mesh.

Here is the plaster that I used, bought at a hobby store.
Just tore up some pieces and glued them on the journal.
A bit messy but I sooo love the effect!

 Some leafy twig branches, painted with gesso.

The Sharon butterfly.

I liked cutting up the Turkish Lace Panel and used some of the small bits here and there.

More texture!

Family -2Cratfy Chipboard-

Here is my second DT project this month for 2Crafty Chipboard.
 I wanted to show you my family.....my love....my everything! <3

As my girls get older they are choosing their own ways and one girl already has left the nest.
Vacation together therefor was a long time ago but finally we had the chance to go together again! 
                   So wonderful to go with just the four of us. We had an amazing time! 


For this page I again used a thin canvas board, which holds the paints perfectly.
Created the background by adding some modeling paste using a palette knife.
Added the orange and green colors and made some splatters with the same paints.
Toned it done a bit with some gesso to give it a more softer look.
Just love this technique on my work and I use it almost every time! 
Can't work without my gesso! LOL

The word "family" got a coat of gesso.
Extended the word by using a leave set chippie.

The flowers and the small wooden beads.

The small wooden beads are from an old necklace.

The Ava frame got a coat of gesso as well.
I like to use a small sponge to coat my chippies.
Simply cut a kitchen sponge in small pieces.

I made the thread flower and 
also painted some green flowers and roses as I was short on my green ones.

Alarm clock -2Crafty Chipboard-

Today my first project for the month of February for 2Cratfy Chipboard.
This time I altered an alarm clock.
I love the fact that these chippies can be used for any project!


Started this alarm clock by removing all the inside and give everything a ferm coat with gesso.
Added some art stones in different sizes.
Used some colors of acrylic paints and gave it a more softer look with some gesso.

The lace border was perfect to go around my clock!
Simply painted that border with some gesso using a small sponge.

The foliage chipboard piece, also painted with some gesso.

A small Sharon butterfly and some threads for more texture.

Here you can see all the chippies: The lace border around the clock, 
the foliages and the butterflies.

Added paper flowers and some large shiny beads as extra embellishments.

Photo of little me taken from our latest vacation to sunny Greece.

The lovely Sharon butterfly.
