March Shares By Athanasia


Hello 2Crafty friends!
I found this cute photo on pinterest and decided to create a small canvas this time.
Even though project is small, I managed to use 7 chipboard pieces in there :)

Before we start... 
Please remember to become a blog follower & leave a blog comment to

I used different media to alter the chipboard pieces.
The word 'Moment' is painted with black and white gesso.
I also used white gesso to paint the Medallion Flower . 

For the tiny Hearts I used H2Os Twinkling Watercolor in red shade, 
becausI wanted to achieve a shiny and juicy look. 
I also used a small  paintbrush with white gesso to highlight them.

I altered the Leaves and the Polaroid Frame with green and brown shades of
Primary Elements in order to give them a natural look. 
I just spread some powder over all colors here and there
 with a dry paintbrush and sprayed some water.

2Crafty Chipboards Used:

Polaroid Assortment Frames, Flower Medallions, ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars, 

Moment Loopy Font, Leafy Silhouettes, Wildflower Set

' Colorful ATCs'

I love making small art pieces and ATCs, they are always a perfect choice.
Even though they measure only  212 by 312 inches, they provide sufficient space
 for many small embellishments,  believe me :)
And what would be most appropriate than chipboard pieces to use on them!

It was really a fun and quick project and I really enjoyed the process.
First I created a mixed media background with Primary Elements and let it dry.
In the meantime I fussy cut the Circular Panel and Painted it with brown
 acrylic paint and a little bit of blue. I stuch them together using staples.
Last thing to do was to glue the word stickers and the tiny Stars and Hearts.
 I decided to leave those two little fellows natural - I don't know why, I just liked
 the way they looked on there as they were, with no paint at all :)
