March Projects from Maiko

Hello Everyone!
Maiko here with you today to share my March projects.

My first share this month is a Canvas Layout.
This size is 10×10 inches.

"love you"

2Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
Frame Handrawn Hearts
Interlocking Grid Panel
Word Circles Set1

I love heart shapes and also love working with frames, so it was an easy choice to 
choose the  "Frame Handrawn Hearts" for this project.

I painted it with a gesso and then applied Shimmerz TextureZ, and inks.

This word circle "smile" is from the "Word Circles Set1".
I like layering amongst the layers of flowers.
 I applied  gesso to it, then I added a small amount of Shimmerz Inklings, before
 painting it with  Prima 3D Matte Gel and finally  I covered it in Prima Art sugar.

This is the "Interlocking Grid Panel".

I like using these sorts of panels under the flowers.

The title, "Love You", is  simply painted with  gesso, Shimmerz Inklings and Brown Inks.

Next is..


2Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
6" Circle Revolution Frames 
LOVE Flourish
Heart Silhouettes
Valentine Branch

This Bird is so cute.
This is from the  "Valentine Branch".
I painted this with gesso, Shimmerz Inklings and Ink.
Finally, I added a small amount of Glitter.

This heart is "Heart Silhouettes" that I used.

I used the inside portion from this heart. 
I painted this with gesso and Shimmerz Inklings ,
then  I covered it in Prima Glass Beads.

I used a lot of circles for this layout, including 2 of the 2Crafty chipboard 
"Circle Revolution Frames" from the 6" pack. I have mixed them in with
crystal and wire circles to add dimension and texture.

I love this chipboard and have used as my title - "Love Flourish"
It is so lovely!

This is simply painted with a gesso ,pink ink and Shimmerz Inklings

My last creation today is...


2Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
Corner Xmas Star Spray
Handdrawn Stars
Alphabets -EveryDay Font L/C 

This chipboard is given the title as" Xmas".
But I think this can also be used for a layout besides  Christmas.

I applied some gesso to it, and then I added a small amount of 
Shimmerz Texturez , Inklingz and Prima Glitter.

Lasty, I colored the edges with ink.

These are "Handdrawn Stars".
These are  painted with a gesso and some Shimmerz Inklings and Prima Inks. 
 They are so cute and delicate and I love to use them.

This title is simply some chipboard alphas from the Everyday 12x12 Lower Case set, 
I have painted with a gesso and some Prima Inks.

That is all from me today.

Thank you for visiting!
