"Those Were the Days"
Hello everyone. It is my turn to share some projects today,
and this time I decided to experiment using techniques that I rarely
do on chipboard, but they are worth a try.
So the first LO is called Those Were The Days.
Spring is coming in Australia, but in Europe it is Fall.
That is why I look at these pictures that were taken this spring &summer
and miss those sunny warm days so much. I have to confess
that I hate winter, and this is why I decided to extend
summer in my projects.
So I took many paints and mediums and
First I covered all the chipboard pieces with Gesso.
Then I began to add some variations.
So I took the Frame Scallop Circle Borders
The pink one I just covered with Glaze paint, and the blue one,
I covered with blue acrylic paint, then drew some doodles with a Pearl Pen.
After it was dried I added twine over it and drew the dots with
Pearl Pen Teal. I love this puffy effect.
I decided to pop up the Title too and tried this Pearl Pen
on Those Were The Days Title.
Before the final pearl Pen step, I added several layers of Glaze paint.
and then I realized that I want just wanted to draw.
So Ana's Vine is the best way to experiment
I covered it with Gesso, then added 2 green colors of
Metallic Lumiere paint. After that I covered the leaves and the flowers
with some acrylic paint and glaze paint.
Finally I took my black marker and drew. I even managed to draw a tulip.
Finally I decided to add Pearl Pen and liquid Pearls too.
You can see the dimension there:
This summer my daughter received a mountain bicycle on her Birthday
( by the way, there are no mountains in Belarus, lol),
but she was very happy to have such a cool bike
Before that she had been very happy with her scooter ( in this photo).
I decided to add Mini bicycle as the reminder. and you know,
I'm still singing the song by Queen * I want to ride my bicycle*.
On my second Layout I tried out some decoupage techniques.
I took a tissue with floral print and covered the Chinese Lanterns with it.
I used to do some decoupage projects in the past
so I have tons of different tissues, so I tried them out on chipboard.
I suppose they refresh the LO. what do you think?
and this Chinese theme followed me while I was using
I covered them with Gesso, then misted with blue Starburst mist
and embossed with a stamp using Antiquites embossing powder
for a shabby effect.
I then added my favourite 2 Crafty Skeleton Leaves,
just slightly misted.
I hope you are not bored with so many photos,
but I love details.
Finally one of my
latest layout using Film Strips Tiny
Nothing special, just some gesso on my fingers.
I hope I have inspired you to try something new on some
2 Crafty chipboard pieces.
You can alternatively, even use them for your
drawings and decoupage experiments too.
I am very happy when you visit me on my blog,
but more over we are happy when you visit us on the
leaving us some comments and
perhaps even sharing you projects with us.
Have a nice day
