'Let Your Light Shine' by Lisa Griffith

Hello 2 Crafty Chipboard fans!
Lisa here to share with you two projects, the first one is a layout inspired by my little boy.
'Let Your Light Shine'

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

'Cog Border'
'Heart Silhouettes'
'Let Your Light Shine'

I knew I wanted to use the amazing piece called 'Cog Border' in a boyish super grungy 
layout so I embossed it with black and chunky gold embossing powders really unevenly 
to make it look like rusted metal. Then I cut up the border into smaller pieces and tucked them 
into my layers made of vintage book paper and some pieces of an old pair of my sons jeans.

I treated the title piece 'Let Your Light Shine' and the 
'Silhouette Hearts' the same way, with gold embossing powder 
and I love the way they turned out.

My second project is a layout done on a 8 X10 Prima 'Paintable'.

'A Glimpse Of You'

2 Crafty Chipboard used:

'A Glimpse of You'
'Skeleton Leaves'
'Avery Vines'

For all the chipboards I used on this project I first covered them with white gesso, 
and then colored them with inks in green, cinnamon brown, and orange.

This title piece 'A Glimpse of You' is so perfect for a vintage photo of my Grandma
tucked into some fall coloured flowers.

I hope I have inspired you a little and shown you how to make 2 Crafty Chipboard work well 
in a super grungy layout or make it delicate and pretty, it's all up to you!

Happy Crafting!

Wow, when I saw this page pop up in my reading list under my blog, I just has to stop by and see this amazing work up close. The details are utterly spectacular, and a perfect boy page. Lisa has this amazing innate talent for color harmony and layering details, and those talents certainly appear up on this magical page.
