May shares by Marilyn


Hello! Today I share with you three different projects, the first one is this colorful
layout that I made about my daughter and her friends. I selected  the Heart Swirl Back Frame 
to create my background design. I applied a coat of gesso to all my chippies then I 
painted with color blooms and stamped to create this cool effect.

I added the Element set  around  the flower embellishments and photo then 
painted with acrylic paint.

You can see the different layers that I did in the Heart Swirl Back Frame, I started
 with a coat of gesso, then I applied Color Bloom Gold and coral colors. After dry,
 I stamped  the chippies.

 I only painted my "Friends" title with gesso and then with color bloom, so easy right?

"This Is Me"

In my second project I chose the "This is Me" title that I applied a coat of gesso, then I painted with Chalkboard Paint and  I applied distress ink in the borders.  After dry, I added micro beads to all the chippies with gel medium, it create an awesome textures and effect in the  chipboard.

After I gave a coat of gesso to the Ava's Butterflies I applied Stickles to the butterflies chipboard .

In my background I placed the Chevron Bits chipboard to create a design.
  I enhanced the Chevon's design distressing all the border with a black marker.

My last project is a tag that I made using the new Formal Flourish1 and Formal Flourish2 
that I put vertically in the tag borders. I worked all the chippies with acrylic paint. 
The title is a Word Circle set.
