December Shares With Beck BT

Hi, it's Beck Beattie here with my December inspiration shares
I had lots of fun with paint and sprays this month while creating my pages.  I have 
two different style pages for you showing some different uses for your chipboard.  
"Good Times With Friends"

You honestly don't need pattern paper to create fun pages.  After creating a fun 
watercolour background with the help of some texture paste stencilling, I added in
 my embellishing features being all chipboard except for a few sequins!  Yes just
 chipboard and paper - pretty cool huh!  
I coloured the title with StazOn Teal blue ink pad - so quick and easy and so effective!

I just love these 'dotty bits' and I cut them into little circles, added a little
Indigoblu English cottage Arisist's Acrylic Paint in 'Gold Finger'
(that paint coats the chipboard SO WELL) and added them as an embellishment to the page.  

Last I added some of these sweet birds that I simply added some thick gesso
(I love DecoArt Media Gesso for this - its nice and thick) with my finger
 dabbing it on for some added texture and adhered them to the page.

   2Crafty Chipboards Used:

Dotty bits 
Good Times
Birds set


Here is a fun layout I created of me and my boys, I wanted  a little grunge,
 but also some girly fun in there too!

I had fun using the chipboard triangles to stamp into my background by adding some spray
 (I used 'Watermelon' by Fun Stampers Journey) to my kraft sheet and then stamping
the chipboard piece into it and then using to stamp onto the cardstock.  So not to waste
 the triangles I added them to my page as well!

Layers of meltallic rub (I used DecoArt Metallic lustre in teal and orange) create a fun grungy
 effect.  I first gave a coat of black gesso with some texture left to the chipboard pieces.

 Again I used Orange Metallic lustre on my title

2Crafty Chipboards Used:
Harlequin clumps
Traingle set
Mini words 2


I hope you enjoyed my share this month on the 2Crafty blog!  May you have a fun and 
restful time over the holiday season with friends and family.  May you be spoilt and
 cherish the holiday season full of joy and laughter!
