Inspiration With Trudi

"Amaze Yourself"

Hi Everyone!
Trudi back with you today with some more 2Crafty inspiration.

Please remember to become a blog follower & leave a comment to
be eligible to go in our monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.
The more comments you leave, the more chances to win.

For my first project I have added some water colour fun to 2Crafty Chipboard.


 Chipboard pieces were first painted with white Fantasy Snow - this is quite 'gritty' and adds a nice 'snow like' textural effect.  Ken Oliver Color Burst Pigment Powders were sprinkled over the top and then activated by spritzing water. Some really cool effects can be created by varying the amount of water you apply and by mixing the colours. 


The larger 11" Round Flourish Frame, frames the outside of the page, whilst a  6" Circle Dot Frame sits behind the photo. A Twinkling Fairy sits on top of the smaller Corner Swirly Heart from the set. The wing of the fairy was slightly bent upwards with a flower tucked in underneath to add a touch of pretty softness to the wings. A few pieces from the Christmas Decorative Ornament Borders were removed and then tucked in along the bottom edge of the photo.


 2Crafty Products Used:
11" Round Flourish Frame
Corner Swirly Heart Set
6" Circle Dot Frames
Twinkling Fairies
Christmas Decorative Ornament Borders
Amaze Yourself
 
 
 
Some more of the newly released pieces of 2Crafty also feature on my following project.
 The larger corner from the Swirly Heart Set, medium Circle Dot Frame and a
 Beaded Hanging Heart.
 
"Precious"

This time I altered the chipboard elements with Colour Blast Products - Colour Paste
 in Fire Engine for the Circle Dot Frame and Snow White and a touch of shimmer
with Rose Pink Colour Spray for the Corner Swirly Heart. 


A smaller Revolution Frame was scrunched up and then 'looped' for a 'twine' effect.
It was lightly accented with a combination of white paint and snow white colour paste
mixed together. The word precious was inked with Vintage Pink Chalk Ink with
Snow White Colour Paste dabbed over the top.

Here is also my Guest Designer work for Prima for the month of February. This is my
 take on Prima's February Sketch challenge which I have also incorporated some 2Crafty lovelines.
 
"My Wish For You"
 
I added Distress Walnut Stain to the chipboard with a subtle accenting of metallic gold.

And Prima's PPP for February:
"LOVE"

and pink glitter sprinkled over the top.
