Sharing Some Inspiration by Lindy Gillespie

"Together"
                                               
                                             Hello and welcome to a lovely summery day.
                         I have three layouts to share with you today with loads of 2 crafty chipboard.

                                     On the first layout I have used...                                  
"Summer Leaf Stems"
"Corner Tiny Edwin"
"Folkheart"
"Together-Title loopy font"
                                                         
                           
                                All the chippies I first prime with gesso. With "Corner Tiny Edwin"
                                                 I just wiped over some vintage pink ink.
 

The next two photos show that I stamped on the"Summer Leaf Stems"
and after I inked the "Folkheart" I applied some crackle.
 Love how it all 
bubbles if you apply more heat.

The "Together-Title loopy font"was just treated with gesso 
and then  wiped over with some ink.

 
"Nature"
                                     
    On this next  layout there's lots of background treatment
                                                      with lots of different shapes of chipboard.


                                          All  the chippies on this layout I have simply been painted
                                        with white acrylic paint to give them a crisp white look.

                                               I also added some crackle to the "Allegra Frame"
                                                 and the "Polaroid Frame" , but the"Bracket"
                                                            I cut in half to add to the layers.
                                             The 'Tiny Henri Frame" and the  "ATC Corners"
                                                     and "Name Plates" were all  just  left plain.
                                                  On the "Clock Frame" I just simply left natural
                                                    except for inking the edges in Olive distress ink.


       "Loving These Moments"

I created this last layout for the Prima BAP for January.
Lots of treatment on the background with gesso, misting & stamping.
The photo is one from my niece who lives in New York
and this year has been terribly cold winter.

The title "Loving These Moments" was just ideal for the photo.
I tucked in some "Celebration Swirls" behind the photo
which I first  painted in gesso &  then  misted. 



I have a chippie "Tag"  hiding among the papers 
with I just covered with paper.

Love the new "Sharon's Butterflies".
I just treated them with gesso and then embossed them with
some white and on the smaller butterfly I inked it in black.

Loving these loopy titles 
                                   which was also primed in gesso and inked in Versamark black.



  Thanks for popping into the 2 Crafty blog today.
  Hope I have inspired you to create with some of 
                                                 our fabulous chipboard on your next project .
