April Guest Designer - Melinda Thompon


Hello everyone,

It's Melinda Thompson here again today with another 2Crafty project. I couldn't wait to create this beachy scene layout and the 2Crafty Chipboard pieces just fitted in so well!

"Happy Memories"

I have used the Surfboard chipboard pieces which I used a mixture of Gesso, Shimmerz Paints, Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam & Glaze, Stamping and more gesso to give it a rustic/whitewashed look.

How cool are these Palm Trees!! I firstly primed them with Gesso, lots of layers of Pan Pastels, outlined with water coloured pencils and then given a wipe over with some gesso using a baby wipe. I have layered them up also to give it a more 3D look.

And lastly this little beauty...Grandma's Bike... similar sort of techniques used here.  Gesso, Pan Pastels, Shimmerz Paints and more Gesso!

Hope you have enjoyed seeing my 2Crafty Projects as much as I have enjoyed creating them!
A big thank you to Vanessa and Di for this opportunity, if you want to see more of my work, please check out my BLOG.
