September Inspirations and a VIDEO TUTORIAL
by Marilyn Rivera

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a wonderful day!  Today I will show 
you three projects and a video tutorial using the beautiful 
2Crafty Chipboard. Here is my first page...

"Little Star"

Here's a memory of my daughter Paola when she was 3 1/2 years old. 
  I started off by applying a coat of gesso to the Small Crazy Circle Panel chipboard followed by some mediums...you will see all the process in my video at the end of this post. 
 My papers are from 7Dots Studio- Love is in the air collection.


I added some  photos to the Small circle panel and used it like a frame, too.


I have coloured the swirl chippies with gesso and acrylic paint, so easy!


I enhanced my photo with this pretty corner that I only give a 
coat of gesso and then applied paint.


2Crafty Chipboard used.
  Small Crazy Circle Panel
 Sammi's Swirl,
 Corner Tiny Edwin



 "A Princess Selfie"

My second page is about my lovely niece. She took a selfie and sent it to me. 
 In this page I gave texture to the chipboards with Shimmerz Texturez.
 I applied it and used the heat gun to create lots of cool texture.
I worked this page with a border, leaves and flowers chipboards.
I used Maja Design papers "Coffee in The Arbour" collection


I applied gesso and paint to my Rose chipboards.


I painted and cut my border in half to use the other parts around
 the bottom of my page.


I used every small piece that I cut from the chippies...


2Crafty Chipboard used: 
 Leafy Shrub Set
 Filigree
 Gigi's flowers


 "Remember Believing" 

In my last page, I worked with many tiny stars chippies, gears and part
 of my title "Remember".  I started  applying  gesso to all these pieces and then a coat of Stickles gold.  This is a memory of my daughter Paola,
 she wanted a fairy dress so  I sewed it for her and took her this photo.


I added gears around my photo and flowers.


In the bottom corner of my page I mixed the chippies with my title...


I put the stars around my photo to create this design.
