Together - DT 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi peeps, 

Here is my second layout featuring 2Crafty chipboard.

A bit different than the previous, this time it's a layout with lots of details and work on the background.

Here is our two daughters and myself on a bridge in St.Jame's Park, near Buckinham Palace in London.
Our youngest had bought herself a selfie-stick and used it all the time when we were in London in June.

On this layout I have used papers from 7Dots Studio - 9th Wave collection and the bacground is filled with gesso, Ecoline watercolor, Prima/Finnabair Mica Powder, stencils and stamps.

I used Archival Ink to color the chippies this time

On this layout I used some of the awesome word chippies from Mini Word set 2 and 
Mini Travel Word Set 1. Absolutely love those word-chippies. They can be 
used on layouts like mine or on cards, as the size isn't too big.

The Leafy Shrub Set was a perfect match for the photo as we were in a lovely park. 
I used two of the chippies from that set.

This is my life - DT 2Crafty Chipboard

Today I have the first of two  layouts featuring 2Crafty Chipboard to show you.

This is a simple layout that shows what effect some of the gorgeous
 2Crafty chippies can make on a layout.
I chose a kraft background and a black and white photo of myself, 
playing with my art journals.

Love this large text chipboard and it was perfect for the photo.

All the chippies are colored with black ink.

I used some teal /mica powder as a contrast, love that color.
The flair button says " just now". 

Here you see some of the stamping and stencils on the background.
Most of the stamps are by 7Dots Studio

Enjoy life now! Creative Gym Exercise #12 Mixed Media Place

New Creative Gym Exercise is live on Mixed Media Place!

 Check out the gorgeous projects by the team!

For this Creative Gym Challenge exercise I made another Art Journal using mostly Archival Ink on the background to get the colors I wanted.

And of course some stamps and stencils.

This stamp was just perfect for the text/Proverb.

On this page I used Black Gelato for my text, and added some water to blend. Love the look when it’s not too “correct” .

I also added some of the gelato on the large Finnabair stamp (on the right side) to get some shadows/depth.

Hope you enjoyed my page and I wish you a fabolous day!

Creative soul - DT Mixed Media Place

Hi all Mixed Media fans!
Do you have things in your crafting room that you forget you have?
I know I do!
So today I have an Art Journal to show you and hope I can inspire you to mix some different media.

Here is a page made with lots of fun products from Mixed Media Place:

I have so many different media in my room and tend to forget to use them so here is a page with a background made with Gelatos. And of course lots of other yummies!

I started with gessoing my page first. Like to do that, in case I’m going to use lots of water.  Never quite know where an art journal page will bring me, so to be on the safe side – gesso first.

After the gesso was dry I used the Gelatos from the Tropical set. Gorgeous happy colors. Just rubbed them randomly on my page and used my finger with water to blend.

Bacground done and it was time for the real fun, make the page alive with stamps, stencils and stickers.

I little touch of Ecoline watercolor as well, love this!

It’s all about have fun and play with the things you have!

Or if you miss something, you could always find it in Mixed Media Place store

So, have fun!

Two cards - DT 2Crafty Chipboard

Hi again and welcome back!

I don't make so many cards at the moment, but sometimes I need to, because I want to give homemade cards when I give a Birthday gift or for special occasions.

So here is two cards, made with some of the beutiful chippies by 2Crafty Chipboard.

For this first card, I have used loads of chippie pieces and it is surprising
 how many pieces you can fit on a card.

 I have made a little scene, using some of the Fencing Wire, Iron Gate and French Lace,
and then to soften it, I have added the Leafy Round behind my Heart.

I have used gesso on all the chippies, before using a mix of inks to get the desired colours - 
I've gone for a very earthy, rustic tone.

Papers are from 7Dots Studio and I have used some stamps by Prima/Finnabair and Ecoline watercolor on the background.

For this card, I have used softer colour tones, and used more feminine pieces.


 I have layered up multiple pieces again, including pieces from the Squiggly Heart Cluster
Butterfly Frames and cut off piece from the 5" Floral Frame.

 Below you can see the layering effect, love the texture and contrast the chipboard
adds to the card.

On this card I have used papers by 7Dots Studio, stamps by Prima/Finnabair and 7Dots Studio.
I have also used some tags I made some time ago + a tag from a sweater.
The pink flower is by Prima

Hope I have inspired you to bring out your chippies and make some cards!

Best day ever - DT 2Crafty Chipboards

"Best Day Ever"

Hi peeps, hope you all are well!
Today I have a layout featuring 2Crafty Chipboard to show you.

Earlier this year I surprised our youngest daughter and bought a ticket to a
 concert with her favorite band, the Australian boy/rock-band 5SOS.
I really made "her day" and she had the time of her life!! (I missed my earplugs LOL)

So the photo on this layout is from this concert and the fabulous lightshow as you can see!

I really love the  Hessian Patch Panel chipboard and know I'll be using this very much!
 I cut it in several pieces and placed it near the photos. Gesso, archival ink and Ecoline 
watercolor is used on the chippies. I love to mix colors on my chippies according
 to the rest of the layout.

The title "Best Day Ever" is colored with Archival Ink,  black and white  gesso.

One of the things I like to to do on my layouts is to use multiple photos
 and place them as you see here. It give the layout dimension I think.

Look at this amazing Hessian Patch Panel again, it's just so cool!

Here I have used the "Heart Charms" and given it the same treatment
 as the rest of the chippies.

My background is made with Heavy Gesso by Prima/Finnabair, black gesso, Ecoline watercolor, stamps by Prima/Finnabair and 7Dots Studio.
I cut out lots of bits of pattern paper as a start, to get even more dimension.

All the papers I have used is 7Dots Studio, 9th Wave 

Hope you liked my layout and I'll be back soon with some cards, also featuring 2Crafty Chipboard.
