April Share with Beck BT

Hi, it's Beck Beattie here.
Today I am sharing some fun projects featuring 2Crafty Chipboard of course! 
 I love how effective they can look in both altered and natural states.  

Today I'm going to share with you the use of both! 
  But before we start....

"Be Yourself"

 I was playing along with the Kraft+ challenge for this month which is black and white
on kraft with inspiration images.  2Crafty are a sponsor this month so it is an extra
 awesome month to play along and hopefully win yourself some yummy chipboard!!

For my title I applied a coat of Indigoblu Cottage Paint in Pantry white.
 Given the highly pigmented paints I only needed to apply one coat.

I love the natural kraft colour of the chipboard and thought they worked well to break
 up the colours of the background, so I left both the diamond panel and star frame
pieces which I cut up and adhered in clumps, in their natural state.

For the Harlequin clumps I simply applied some black permanent ink with my
ink pad to colour them and adhere in clumps of three around the page.

"Amaze yourself Canvas"
For my canvas I layered some fun 2Crafty pieces for a striking effects onto a 
layered mixed media canvas.  

I once again painted the Amaze Yourself chipboard title with
 Indigoblu Cottage paints in 'Pantry White'  

The background piece I applied a coat of black ink by rubbing over it.

For the key I first coloured it with a gold marker and then embossed it through my
die cut machine with a sweet embossing folder, love how it came!
