August Projects by Marilyn Rivera

Hello 2 Crafty fans!!
Marilyn  here with you today and I 'm so excited because it is my
 first post as design team member here at 2Crafty Chipboard & I three layouts to show you.

"Father & Daughter Moment"

In my first page I started off by painting all the chipboard with gesso  then
 I simply painted the pieces with distress ink. Too easy.

2 Crafty chipboard used...
Title- Father & Daughter Moment

 Cecilia Frame-[fr0048]
Love Key Set- [m00433]

This frame is just soooo beautiful with all those gorgeous little flourishes on it.

The title was just perfect for my photo.
2Crafty do a massive range of titles to suit all manner of projects.


"So Hard to See You Go"

My second project is a boy layout.  My son spent the Summer with us here in NC
 but he returned to study in PR, & it is always  hard to see him go.  I took these
 pictures on the day he left..

I mixed in this page the clock, frames and film stripes chipboards. I started 

off  by applying modeling paste with a sponge to all the frames then I applied
coat of gesso, next I painted with distress ink (blue and beige) colors.

2Crafty Chipboard Used:
Asst Polaroid Frames-
Clock Face Frames- [120064]
Tiny Film strips-[m00407]

The skeleton clock frame tucked in at the side.

All the little film strips were just the perfect thing
to use with all thee pics.

My third project is a canvas...

I applied molding paste and a thin coat of gesso to all my chipboard,
 then I painted them with yellow acrylic paint.

2Crafty product list:
Corner Flower Vine - 
 Circle Revolution frame-[12075]
Delicate Butterfly-

I hope my work has  inspired you!
Until next time.

Marilyn, your work is so "tangible" in the sense of having so much texture that I feel I can literally touch it!! Amazing projects!!
