Fiona's August Inspiration

Hello 2Crafty friends! 
Fiona here with you today to share two projects I've created for this months post.
 My first one is another in my Dr Who Series. This is my favourite Dr, Tom Baker 
otherwise known as the 4th Dr. Probably the most iconic of all the Dr Who's with his extra 
long scarf, hat and long coat.

"Anyone for a Jelly Baby?"

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used
"Light Bulbs"
 "Giant Gears"
"Chevron Bits"
"Dotty Bits"

I wanted to make this a colourful piece like the Drs. scarf and his Jelly babies! So I coloured the "Chevron Bits" with heavy ink and then heat embossed over the top with coordinating colours.

I applied a similar finish to the "Giant Gears". .
The "Light Bulb", I simply painted with white acrylic paint so it would stand out.

The "Dotty Bits" make up the last of the chippy bits. I used gelatos to
 colour them and then smudged it to blend.

My next piece is a soft glittery girly page.

"Amazing Beauty"

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
"Messy Square Frames"
"Large Leafy Vine"
"Mini Word Set 1"

I painted the "Large Leafy Vine" with gesso first and then added a sparing amount of glue once the gesso had dried. After it was a little bit tacky, I dipped the "Large Leafy Vine" into some glitter to coat it.

The "Messy Square Frames" are trimmed to sit slightly off the page. I also painted them in white gesso and then once they were dry I scraped a layer of paint over the top.

I used the same paint to add some splats around the page. The title was created by using two of the words from the "Mini Word Set 1". Amazing and beauty. I used the same technique that I used on the "Large Leafy Vine": but with more glue so that more glitter would stick!

You can never have too much glitter I say!!!
Thank you for popping in and checking out my creations. x
