July Inspiration By Ingrid

Hello there 2Crafty friends!
Ingrid here today with a canvas and two cards.


I wanted to make a summer canvas featuring lots of gorgeous chipboards! 
Made the background by glueing some plaster tape with gel medium.
Added the paints and once dry, some gesso to make it look softer.

I used some crackle paint for the old fence.
All the chipboard got a coat of gesso first before all the paints.

Colored the berry branch with acrylic paints and once dry, a little touch with some gesso.

The thistle shrub got the same treatment.

The plaster tape in the background gives it some more texture.

Again the Dandelions painted and lightly touched with some gesso.

The butterfly, painted with some acrylic paint and gessoed the edges.

Here is my second project this month, a set of two cards....

For these cards I cut up the Turkish Lace panel and glued them on the small canvas cards.
I also glued some plaster tape for extra texture.
Added some art stones and gessoed the two cards before the paints.
Once dry, they got also got a touch with some gesso.

Here you can see the differenence between the before and after, the final touch with gesso.
I just love the much more softer look! :) 

With the plaster I created more texture.

The words got two coats with some gesso.

The art stones.

The butterfly was painted and I gessoed the edges.

The Turkish Lace Panel.

Hope you all got inspired by today's projects! :)
