Lindy Gillespie's March Shares

Hello and thanks for calling by the blog today.

'Today'

                                        On  my first layout  have used the "Today"- loopy font title.
That loopy font would have to be my favourite.




All the chippies have been first primed with
 2 coats of gesso,
I have used the "Leafy Shrub Set 1"
and sprayed some light blue mist on top, also
dabbed a couple of drops of water to imitate watercolor.

On the "Polaroid Frame" I just painted it with some white acrylic paint.



On the "Sybill's Name Plate" which are underneath the flowers,
  I just added some green mist and the same with the  "Light Bulbs",
I just  sprayed them with a light Blue mist. 


Finally the "Today" title is sprayed with the light green mist
to tone in with the rest of the colour scheme.


'Our Gorgeous Man'
            
                                              On the boy layout which turned out a bit grungy,
                                                         I used 3 pieces of 2 crafty chipboard
                                                                    "Polaroid frame"
                                                                      "Folk Heart"
                                                           "Gorgeous" Title-loopy font


      I  first primed the "Heart" with 2 coats of gesso,
      dabbed some gold silk acrylic paint on & 
 then stamped on top. 
                                           With the "Polaroid Frame" I just treated as above
                                                                  without the stamping...


On the title "Gorgeous" I treated in the same manner 
as the Polaroid frame .Primed it first then dabbed the 
gold paint and some black mist.


'Cute'


                                    On this page I took inspiration from this months challenge 
                                                       over at "Scrap Around the World",
                                                                   love those colours .


   This is the new kid on the blog, he's just  the cutest puppy.
        Also you would have seen this on Shimmerz Paints. 

 The 2 Crafty Chipboard I have used are

                                                                 "Clock Face 6 inch"
                                                             "Tiny Victorian Frame"
                                                                   "Film Strip Tiny"
                                                                 "Cassie's Flourish"
                                                                   "Lucy Flourish"
                                      


                                                                I first primed all the pieces 
                                        and painted the Clock face with a coat of white distress paint 
                                                             and heat set it until it bubbled
 which makes for a great texture.

                                                On the Lucy Flourish I treated the same way 
                                            as the clock face but added some Shimmerz Pink.
                                                                          


 On the "Cassie Flourish" after I had primed it,
I applied  distress paint &  I added a touch of Shimmerz Paint
 in Ballet slipper Pearlz



The tiny "Victorian Frame" was treated in the same manner
as the Clock face, but I painted with two coats of the distress paint
to give it a more textured look.


Thanks for pooping in, I hope I have 
inspired you to play with some 2 Crafty Chipboard.
Until next time.
