December Inspiration - A Layout & A Home Decor
By Mary Catt

''Christmas Joy''

Hello 2Crafty fans! 
  Mary here with you today with my last post for 2Crafty Chipboard. It's so hard for me to
step down from a team that I have been a member for more than one year. It has been one
 of the best teams ever and I am so honored I was a part of it. I had a really great time
 creating with these gorgeous chipboards and I really hope to return in the future.
But for now, let's take a look at the projects I made for my December inspiration.  
I created a layout and a Christmas home decor on wooden slides and both are having
 video tutorials.
My first layout was made with lots of flowers, some Christmas embellishments
combined with some beautiful chipboard pieces.
You can watch the VIDEO TUTORIAL with the procedure here. 


 I based my page on the 13arts ARTelier December sketch challenge.

2Crafty Chipboards used... 
Swirly Star Border
Xmas Mini Word Pack

 Here are some close ups...

 First, I made a mixed media background with modeling paste and a stencil and did some random stamping. Then, I added color with the ''Pastel Cobalt'' and the ''Pastel Lavender'' 13arts mists.

 I painted the ''Stars'' and the ''Swirly Star Border'' chipboards with the ''Gold'' splash ink.

The title words from the ''Xmas Mini Word Pack'' was also painted with the ''Silver'' splash ink.

Finally, I added some ''Natural Mika Flakes'' and made  some splatters with ''White'' splash ink.

My second project is a Christmas home decor piece created with lots of
chipboards along with some beautiful Christmas flowers and lots of glitter.

You can see the procedure on my VIDEO...


 I based my page on the Mixed Media Place December challenge.

2Crafty Chipboards used... 
 Holly Twig
Deer Head Set
Mini Reindeers
Stellar Snowflakes
Fernlike Snowflakes

 Here are some close ups...

 I started by applying a coat of white gesso on the wooden slices. Then, I created
 texture with modeling paste mixed with mini art stones.

 While waiting the paste to dry, I heat embossed all the chipboards with the ''Queen Sheba's Silver'' Lindy's Gang embossing powder, then I sprinkled some white glitter on them.

 I used some Lindy's Gang sprays such as ''Salt Water Taffy'', ''Alpine Ice Rose'' and
 ''Autumn Maple Crimson'' to add color on the wooden slices.

As a final touch, I used Snowflake Paste here and there and some made splatters
 with white gesso diluted with water.

 Well, that was all from me today...

 I really hope you enjoyed these projects and all the previous ones I've shared with you.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
