Good Day (2Crafty Chipboards)

Hello dear creative friends,

I'm here today to share my second layout for 2Crafty this month. It is called Good Day and is a lot softer than my first one.

Good Day


For this layout, I had this idea of using two borders one against the other.


I decided to use the beautiful Parisian Border (on the left) along with the Wrought Iron border (on the right).


I chose to leave them bare, as they are so beautiful when left naturally.


I cut a piece of the Parisian Border and tuck it under my flower cluster.


My title piece is the Good Day piece from the Line Words - Happiness Borders.

Sweet (Shimmerz Paints)

Hi crafty friends,

It's Karine here and I'm on the Shimmerz Paints blog today to share with you my second layout for this month. I went with a girly layout this time. Here it is.

Sweet


As usual, I started my layout by covering my paper with clear gesso. After that, I used Salt of the Earth Paste-Eez through a stencil to add texture to my background. 


To match the colors on the paper I chose, I selected Moody Mauve Coloringz and Tuscan Sun Spritz to create some drops here and there. 


It was pretty, but I wanted to add a bit of softness to the background, so I sprayed some Caribbean Sunset Spritz here and there, to add a bit of soft pink color.


I used the Moody Mauve Coloringz to color some lace that I glued here and there in my clusters. It's so easy with the sprays!

My chipboards, the Elegant Flourishes, the Decorative Rod Set 2 and the Friendship Mini Word Pack, are from 2Crafty Chipboard. I painted them with white gesso and embossed them with light copper embossing powder.

Adore (2Crafty Chipboard)

Dear friends,

I'm up on the 2Crafty Chipboard blog today. Let me share with you my first layout.

Adore


I went a little crazy with this one.


My starting point was one of the Doodled Frames piece which I embossed in copper. I think I was inspired by the happy feel of this chipboard!


I wanted to use another piece over my picture. I chose the Ornate Chunky Hearts, which I embossed with the same embossing powder.


In a few key spots on my layout, I added the ATC Tiny Heart & Stars (only hearts). I used some stamped images which I fussy cut to light things up a bit.


My title is from the Mini Word Set 2 and is embossed with black powder.

Wonder (Words & Paintery)

Dear crafty friends,

I hope today finds you well. It's already the middle of the month, which means it's time for another challenge over at Words & Paintery. Here is the layout I made.


And the inspiration board:


At first, when I saw those colors together, I wasn't sure I liked it. But in the end, like each time Marie challenges us with a color combo, I love what it becomes on paper.





I really hope you come and play along with us this month! Give it a try!

Our Sweet Girl (Shimmerz Paints)

Hi there, crafty friends,

I'm on the Shimmerz blog today to share my first layout for the month of May. Here it is:


As always, my first step is to cover the entire background with clear gesso.


Next, I used The ''Cream'' Team Paste-Eez through a grid stencil. I love the effect I got!


I needed some freshness because spring, in my part of the world (I live in Quebec city, Canada) is shy and we have sooooo much rain. I chose to brighten my day with Don't Citron Me Coloringz. This color (the lighter green) makes me so happy!


To give more depth to the color, I used another shade of green: Palm Reader Vibez. I chose some grid chipboards too (Grid Panel from 2Crafty Chipboard)and embellished with green, black and white embellishments. My title piece, "Our Sweet Girl", is also from 2Crafty Chipboard.

Remember (Shimmerz Paints)

Dear crafty friends,

It's my turn today to share my second inspiration for Shimmerz Paints. I created a vintage layout called «Remember». Here it is.


On the picture, my father's parents with seven of his older siblings. 


After a coat of clear gesso, I used a stencil with Salt of the Earth Paste-Eez. I love the matte finish on this texture paste. I dried it with my heat tool.


To add colors, I used Glorious Day Vibez, Don't Be Suede Coloringz and See Ya Latte' Spritz. For each color, I proceed the same way: I dipped my paint brush in the ink and flickered some color here and there and then, dried it with a heat tool.


I used some Oh Fudge AcriTonez to paint my squared chipboards pieces (the Checkerboard Clumps and the Messy Square Frame from 2Crafty Chipboard).


Finally, I covered my title piece (the «Remember» word that comes in the Friendship Mini Word Pack from 2Crafty Chipboard) with white gesso and when it was dried, I painted it with Glorious Day Vibez.
