April Inspirations by Marilyn Rivera

"Bloom & Grow"

Hello 2 Crafty fans, Marilyn here with you today to share three projects using
 the beautiful new releases chippies from 2Crafty.
In my first project I framed my photo with the new Doodle Frames . I gave a coat of
gesso to all my chippies and while  the gesso is still wet  I applied white embossing power 
and then used a heat gun.  It gave it a sand like effect to the chippies once it is dry.
I used the Thought Keepers collection by 7Dots Studios in this page.

I love the new Bubble Clumps chippies and added around my photo and flowers.

 I added one of the balloons from the Mini Hot Air Balloons for a pretty detail to my page.

I love the combination of alphas in the Bloom & Grow  title and it also looks
 great with the sand effect created with gesso and embossing power.

 "Let your Light Shine"

My second project is another layout but this time I made a design using the 2Crafty
 12" border chippies. I selected one of the Decorative Rod Set and painted it with
 acrylic paint in a brown color and placed it across the top of my page.

I framed my photo with the Corner Doodled that I also painted with brown acrylic paint 
and when dry I applied white gesso to smooth the color.

On the bottom of my page I added the Flowery Lace Border that I painted with acrylic paint too.

Lastly I painted the "Let your Light Shine" tittle in two colors and in the 
white area I applied Diamond Dust to create a shine effect.

"A Canvas"

My third project is a canvas.   I selected the Corner Delightfully Floral that I gave a
 coat of gesso and when dry I applied color blooms with a paintbrush.

I love the  "Doodled Heart" it is one of my new favorites chippies and I 
also painted it with gesso and gave it some color with Color Blooms. 

I painted the One Love Title with three different colors to create this effect.

Well that all from me today.
