July Projects by Lisa Griffith

Hello 2 Crafty friends! So happy to be staying on the team through the end of the year :)
I have a few layouts to share with you this month.
But before I continue...
Please remember while you are here be sure you have 
become a blog follower and leave a comment to
 be eligible to go in out monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.


I saw this quote from the author Anäis Nin as part of these Graphic 45 papers, 
and so I wanted to make a page about the sea and all its wonders. 
2 Crafty Chipboard has a new piece called 'Fishing Net Bits' that fit my theme perfectly.
2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
'Fishing Net Bits'
'Cartia's Swirl'

To add texture to the starfish I coated it with a heavy uneven layer of thick white gesso,
when you heat it on high with your heat gun the gesso will bubble up, after that's dry,
I colored it with an orange Lindy's Starburst spray.

I used the same spray on the beautiful swirl to add some movement to my underwater scene.


I used that same technique on my chippies for this layout too, except I added color by
 painting them with some copper colored acrylic paint and then also using the heat gun,
as this makes the paint bubble up, and I love how it transforms the chipboards.

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
'Addy's Butterflies'
'Fine Word Set 1'
'Sakura Flowers'

Here you can see the "Cherish -title" from the new Fine Word Set #1
which is just painted with the white gesso.

I have also tucked in some Sakura flowers too.

Lastly I wanted to share a layout I created for the 'More than Words' June challenge.

Here I kept my chippies simple with a coat of white acrylic paint to fit my shabby chic look.

'Lacey Signpost'

See you soon,
