April Layouts By Sandra Bernard


I wanted to show you two things that you can put together, grunge style and the flower side... 

 2Crafty Chipboard Used...
Elsie's Border 
Addy's butterflies
Frames Tiny Victorian
Fine word set 1

I used a beautiful paper from 7dots studio that was already grungy so, I just
 had to add some turquoise mist and gesso drips to finish my background. 

I painted my chipboards Elsie's Border with gesso and turquoise mist. I did the same
 treatment for the Frame Tiny Victorian. I put some gesso with my finger after the turquoise. 

I colored the butterfly in peach to fit with the peach flowers.

For the title, I just added some gesso on it to get a bright touch.


A purple layout with some black on it to get a deep touch.

My 2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Pointed doily frames
Chloe's vines 
Mini words set 2
Skeleton leaves 
Fray's flourishes

 I started my layout with some ink and black modeling paste on my background.

I painted the Fay's flourishes white white gesso and I added some pan pastel black
 to make a shadow.
The Chloe's vines were painted with black matte paint to create a contrast with Fay's flourishes.

The leaves and the title have been painted with white gesso
 and I also applied some green paint with my finger. 

The pointed doily frame has been cut to make two pieces to
create dimension & has been painted also with white gesso.

I added some black, green, lilac drips all over the layout at the end.

You can see all 2crafty chipboards on their website...

Thanks and see you next month...
