Rachael Funnell's October Projects

'Follow your Heart'

Hello everyone!
Rachael with you today, sharing my October projects...

First up is this canvas! 
Which now looks  FABULOUS hanging up in my craft room....   hehehe!

2 Crafty Chipboard used: 

Follow your heat title
Square barbed wire frames
Wing Set 1
Element set 1
Polaroid Frame
Deer head set
11" Hibiscus Frame

I just LOVE how adding some white splatters to finish this canvas off, gives
all of the chipboard pieces just that little more of appeal/wow factor....

I started off by giving the Follow your heart title a coat of gesso, then inked it with blue,
& honestly didn't like it, SO! I went over the blue with some black ink, I loved how
 there is still bits of blue showing....

 Polaroid Frame also had a coat of gesso & then inked the edges with pink.......

I inked with black the Square barbed wire frame, cut into smaller pieces &
 placed them throughout the canvas....

Also! I inked black & cut in half, this Element.....

I gave the 11" Hibiscus Frame a light coat of gesso then added somewater
colors to the hibiscus flowers....

 I didn't want this Deer head to get lost in all the color....
I ended up giving it couple of coats of gesso!


For my second project I have created this layout...


Since we are in October & 2 Crafty Chipboard have some
REALLY COOL Halloween themed chipboard pieces....
I thought it would be a perfect time to create this layout.....
Even though in my household we personally don't get into the spirit & do the Halloween thing.
 BUT! last year at my daughters school they had on the 30th October a Halloween/dress up something scary day...

2 Crafty Chipboard used:

Film Strips - Small
Ivy Clusters
Mini Word Set 1
Word Circles Set 1
Large Mummy
Halloween Frame

The Circle Word - Today from the Word Circles Set 1 & has a coat of gesso
 then heat embossed the today word.....

I added a very light coat of gesso to the Large Mummy, then added a some pink water color....

Started with cutting the Ivy Cluster into 2 pieces given them coat of gesso, 
then adding a bit of texture paste to just the Ivy flowers....

The 2015 has a coat of gesso then dabbed with Pistaschio Distress Paint...
Did the same with the word Beauty From the Mini Word Set 1

Once the coat of gesso dried on the Halloween Frame,  I just inked the characters!!

The two Small Film Strips have been inked black.... 

And just before I go, I have 1 more layout to share.....
This month 2 Crafty Chipboard are a sponsor over @ C.S.I (Colour Stories Inspiration)

How I solved this case....
Testimony: Inspiration word - SMILE
Lightly layer of gesso to this 2 Crafty Smile word chipboard, I have embossed the word with a Kasiercraft embossing Folder - weave, then inked the lines with black.... VERY HAPPY with how this turned out......

Evidence: Strips, Wings, Antlers, Gold Metal, Triangles, Monster.
