'Journey' By Lisa Griffith

Hello 2 Crafty friends! 
So glad you stopped by today, I have two layouts 
and an art journal spread to share.
 
Before we start...
Please remember while your here be sure you have
become a blog follower & leave a blog comment to
be eligible to go in our monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.

'Journey'

I loved the beautiful and exotic architechture of these photos and the very first chippie 
that came to mind was the 'Morrocan Panel' which I painted with 'Vintage Photo' ink 
for a rich dark brown color.


I painted the 'Film Strip' with black and gold paint.
All the other chippies I covered first with white gesso and
then I used a dry brush to add some brown ink for an uneven look.


2 Crafty Chipboard used:

'Moroccan Panel'
'Mini Branches'
'Journey'
'Film Strip Small'





My second project is an art journal spread in my favourite vintage style.

'Find Yourself'



I always start by adding an uneven thick coat of gesso to the pages of this old book
 to prep them to be less absorbent of the mediums I will use and to give a nice 
white backdrop for some bright colors. 

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

'Frames Tiny Henri's'
'Frames Tiny Kathleen's'
'Fine Leafy Bush'


For all the chippies I used here I covered them with white acrylic paint
 and then brushed on some ink called 'Butterscotch'.



Lastly I wanted to share a layout I created for the challenge blog
'Words & Painterly'.

'Stars and Stripes'


Unusual colors this month, but I like the end result :)

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:

'Cassies Flourish'
'Stars'



For these chippies I coated them with white gesso and then used some watercolor paints
 in blue and yellow. As a final touch I lightly stamped the stars with black ink.

I hope I have inspired you to get colorful with your chipboards!
