Lisa's May Projects

Hello 2 Crafty Chipboard friends!
 Lisa here to share my projects for May.

I recently read a book about Marie Antoinette, and I was inspired to make a page about her.

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
'Pretty Birdcage'
'Viney Page Frame'

I chose the 'Pretty Birdcage' piece which I thought suited the theme really well.

For both chipboard pieces I covered them in thick white gesso, heated them with
my heat gun until it bubbled, and then colored them in some brown ink.

My second project is a pair of botanical cards.

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
'Viney Page Frame'
'Frames Tiny Kathleen's'
'Card Word Set 1'
'Card Word Set 2'

For the 'Viney Frames', I covered it unevenly with white gesso and then 
 painted them with moss green ink. And the word pieces and the little frame, I 
covered them with white gesso, and then painted them unevenly with light gold paint.

Lastly I wanted to share a layout I created for a Guest Design spot at Kiev SkrapKlub.

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
'Fine Leafy Shrub'
'Cassie's Flourish'

I painted the chipboards with some deep blue ink and some brown mist
to blend into my layout.

I hope I inspired you a little!
