Christmas Inspiration by Lindy Gillespie

Hello 2 Crafty friends.
It's December and only a few weeks to Christmas !!!
  Today I have two layouts  plus a couple of cards,
all based on the Xmas theme.

   On the first layout I tried a different colour combo for a Christmas layout.
  The 2 Crafty pieces I have used are 
 " Heidi Vine", "Funky Snowflakes"  and the Title "Celebrate".

    On all the chipboard I started out sealing them all with a coat of gesso,
     and on the edges of the vine I inked it with Prima attic dust.
I just left  the snowflakes white and I sprayed some 
mist on the title Celebrate.

 'Merry Christmas'

            On my second  layout I used
             " Nella Frame", "Brush Stoke Tree",
              " Holly Leaves", "Vintage Border" and "Merry Christmas".

                       The  Frame,  the Vintage Border and the Holly Leaves I left natural,
                                   the Brush Tree I gave a coat of gesso then embossed in white, &
                         finally the Merry Christmas title I cut into sections and embossed in silver.


    I also have Two Christmas cards.
     'Merry Christmas'

    On this card I have used the "Star Of David"
     which I just left natural and the "Star" I painted
          in white acrylic paint.
   'A Very Merry Christmas to You'

I have used the same technique on the 
"Brush Tree" & the "Doily".
 I cut the Doiley in half and simply painted it white.

Wishing  everyone  a Merry Christmas
  and a happy New Year.

I hope I have inspired you to use some fabulous
2 Crafty chipboard on your next project too.
Until next time.
