May Shares With Beck BT


Hi, it's Beck Beattie here.
Today I am sharing some fun projects featuring 2Crafty Chipboard of course! 
 I have had some fun with them this month adding some different effects to the chipboard pieces.

  But before we start....

  "Sparkle"

I used 3 different designs of chipboard on this page and incorporated different effects on each one.


I also have  video to share this month of this scrapbook page I created.  




For the Number Panels I first embossed the chipboard with an embossing folder and 
die cut and emboossing machine.  I then added some Faber-Castell Gesso which I really 
love as it is nice and thin perfect for rubbing on with my finger over the raised areas.




I then used some of the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Paper Crafter Crayons which 
I melted onto my craft Sheet and then placed the chipboard pieces face down into the melted
 crayon to give the mottled effect.  It dries almost instantly and gives such a fun colour addition!


Lastly I coloured the loveyoumore title with my black Faber-Castell's PITT Big Brush pen.

"Happy Birthday Card"
For my second project I created a sweet boy card using the same paper collection and products but focusing on using 2Crafty's chipboard perfectly made for smaller projects such as cards!
 

For the 'Happy Birthday' Sentiment and Chevrons, I coloured them using Faber-Castell's PITT Big Brush pens in black.  They have a high quality India Ink in them perfect for a lovely finish.




I wanted to give the stars a fun metal look so I coloured those using Faber-Castell - PITT Artist Pen in Silver.  Again this has a wonderful India ink in them for beautiful coverage

Love the video. What a clever idea to emboss the chipboards!

Awesome page and card! Loved watching your process video on how you constructed your layout. Excellent treatment of the chippies. I can't wait to try embossing first and then applying some gesso. Another cool technique was stamping into the modeling paste. Thanks for showing how you did this.
