December inspiration by Kavitha

Hello 2crafty fans,

Kavitha here today with my last post for 2crafty.
Its always a sad moment to step down from the team, I have worked a little more than a year
with 2Crafty, and its been one of the best teams ever and I had a great time working with
the gorgeous chippies.
I absolutely love the range and quality of the Chipboards.
Big thanks to everyone for encouraging me throughout the journey.

"Magical" - Winter canvas

For my first project I made a festive winter canvas.
After preparing my canvas with light paste+ snowflake paste for a change
I glued down my chipboard pieces to the base first.
 I cut up Xmas Star Spray into two pieces and used on either side of the canvas
 and also added two pieces of Leafy Rounds to construct the overall composition.
I coated them with thick layer of heavy white gesso, I just dabbed them so that I get
 a nice texture on
the chipboard. 

Now I colored my canvas with teal and grey color bloom sprays.
Once it dried I mixed white gesso+snowflake paste and dry brushed it over
the chipboards partially to highlight it from the base.

Among the layers I added a piece of Decorative disc, Bird House and finished off 
with the Fine Words "Magical".
Everything is painted with white gesso +snowflake paste mix.

I glued down some Tiny stars to the background randomly from the ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars.
I painted them with white gesso and sprinkled some teal glitter while the gesso is still wet.

2Crafty chipboard used:
Decorative Disc Set  1
Leafy Rounds
Corner Xmas Star Spray 
ATC Bird House
Fine Word Set 2
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars

"Beauty" - Layout

For my next project I made a layout using Kaisercraft "Wandering ivy" collection.
The "Ivy clusters" chipboard design perfectly goes with this collection.

 All my chipboard pieces are heat embossed with different color embossing powders.
I also used the Flower Doilies and Frankie's Frame behind the photo. 

Two pieces of Ivy Cluster hanging down towards the bottom of the page from the photo.

 I added a couple of Addy's Butterflies and finished off with the Mini word "Beauty".
