July Video inspiration with Kripa Koushik

Hello friends,

Kripa here with my July projects and video tutorials for two scrapbook layouts.


My first project is an A4 layout using kraft cardstock as base. 

All the chipboards were first covered with white gesso, dried and then painted over with Colourarte Vivid Ultra Metallics. The pink paint on Doodled Heart was looking very bright after painting, so Ive dabbed some white gesso to soften the colour and give a distressed look.

Gigi's flowers got the tiniest amount of twinkling H2O watercolour, for the most part they retain their white from the gesso. The tile from the Fine Words Set was painted over with 3 shades of pink.

I hope you enjoy the video. 

2crafty Supplies used:

- Gigi's flowers
- Doodled heart
- Fine Word Set 2 


My second project too features my son who is the muse for most of my layouts as you would have all realized by now. At that age he used to be full of energy and always ready to give a cheeky smile for the camera! I used the Triangle clusters chipboard and colours to compliment his playful & unpredictable bursts of energy especially at bedtime!

 All the chipboard pieces were first coated with white gesso. I stuck the Triangle clusters on the layout and then dabbed Twinkling H2Os on them using a brush; a tiny bit of yellow, a touch of blue and a dot of red. Remember to leave some white space. It brightens the colours (visual illusion)


Using foam dots between the layers of patter paper behind the photograph, makes it easy to tuck in chipboard to embelish the layout. I outlined the pattern paper and Cool Dude Title chipboard with a Sharpie so the letters standout.

To balance the Triangle clusters without taking the spotlight away, Ive used 3 pieces from Chevron Bits.

Here is the video. I hope you enjoy it. 
Look forward to reading your comments.
