December Inspiration with Kripa & Video Tutorial

'Life is Amazing'

Hello creatives, this month, 2crafty chipboard is sponsoring Kraft Plus Challenge
I'm not sure if this a scrapbook layout or an art journal page, but its perfect as the first
 page of my family scrapbook album.
 My project is based on their mood board which you can see here.

Here is a close up of the focal point of the page made using 4 pieces from the  Family Symbols Set & a heart from the ATC hearts & stars set.All the chipboard pieces were first treated with white gesso and then painted over. On the left is a shaker frame made with one of the smaller frames from the Polaroid Assortment Frames set. Here is a tip : To ensure the tiny star sequins don't slip through the shaker frame, seal it around with washi tape.
Ive tucked a Handrawn heart frame behind this to frame the focal point. Now to the 'Life is Amazing' title piece because of which I decided not to use any photos on this layout. I had been saving this for my gratitude journal but the moodboard at Kraft Plus Challenges provided the perfect inspiration to use it on a 12x12 layout.

I hope you enjoy the video of how this page came together.

2Crafty Supplies Used:
  • Family Symbols
  • Life is Amazing Title
  • Frame Handrawn hearts
  • ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars
  • Polaroid Assortment Frames

Altered Paint brush

My second project was literally inspired by the Modern Swirls chipboard
For some reason it reminded me of music and a brush stroke. 

To begin, the paintbrush & all the chipboard pieces were coated with white gesso. 
The keyhole piece was treated with a mixture of crackle paste & texture paste. 
I then applied paints on the gessoed paintbrush using a palette knife to create some texture.

For the chipboard pieces though, I dabbed the paint with a make up sponge so that the paint application would be even and smooth. Finally, some micro beads, sequins & glitter.
