Find Yourself - With Emma.

Hello 2Crafty addicts.
Emma here with you all today.
Today's share is a soft yet spacey vibed layout.

Find Yourself

Here is the chipboard pieces I chose for this page.....

Flower Doilies
Corner Retro
6" Mandala No.1
Mini Word Set 1

I have been putting myself under a lot of pressure lately and felt I was over doing it on my pages. So with this one I decided to keep It more simple.

All the chippy I used this time I primed with either a black or white gesso.
So for this beautiful Mandala I rubbed over it with a Prima Wax once the gesso was dry. But I didn't want to cover it completely in wax, so when rubbed with a finger it allows for the base colour to pop through. Giving contrast.

For the Retro Corners I painted gesso and then once that was dry I painted over it in an acrylic metallique paint. look at all that shine.

For the Flower Doily I applied the same principle as the Mandala, but went heavier with the wax, this time full coverage.

And finally for the 'Capture' word, I simply applied wax to the chipboard, no gesso for this and it still worked perfectly. That is why I love 2Crafty chipboard, every medium works beautifully on it.

And that's this page done.
It brought me a lot of joy to create this piece, feeling more true to me.

I hope it inspires you in some way?

I'll catch you all very soon, till then happy scrapping :)
Em xx
