July Inspirations PLUS a VIDEO
By Jessika Lundman

"Splash"


Hi there!

Today is my first day here at 2Crafty and I am over the moon with excitement :)
I have made one clean and simple layout and one messy altered project for you.

But 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.


My first my layout is clean & simple.
I have used white gesso, gold Color Bloom spray and Gelatos (a type of crayon)
 to color my chippies in this layout.


The green Skeleton Leaves and the word Splash were treated with white gesso and
 gelatos. Tthe golden Fine Leafy Bush where only sprayed white color bloom.
I was surprised how well the color bloom took on the chipboard!
 I will definitely try that again.

Here is a bit more messy project I have made a process video on it too!

I worked with white gesso and gelatos on this project as well.


All the little lumps of beads are first painted with gesso and then glued on
to the palette with clear gesso. Then it was all given a faint coat of glimmer paint.


I wanted it to be a lot of color behind the title so the white words would really stand out.

 
The "2016" was added after I finished the video. It was painted
 with the same shimmer paint as the stars in the video.

2016's
