August Inspiration with Trudi

"Let Your Light Shine"

Hi Everyone,
Trudi with you today sharing some more 2Crafty Chipboard happiness!
For my project 'Let Your Light Shine' the Wrought Iron pieces have been attached slightly
 angled to create a shutter effect on either side of my photo.

A Corner Arch was positioned on the inside of the attached Wrought Iron piece to create a
garden arbor effect. Before affixing in place, a floral vine was wrapped loosely around it.

Another sweet piece -  Corner Evie was positioned just below the floral cluster with
 a smaller Fanciful Butterfly. 
To recreate a similar effect on the chipboard - paint with white gesso, slightly stippling
 it with your brush as the paint is applied. For good coverage,apply at least 2 coats.
When dry, lightly dab over with metallic gold paint.

For the word title Let Your Light Shine,  metallic gold paint was dabbed over the top.

"Love You"

 For my project 'Love You', I have gone little bit sparkly and pretty.  First background detail was added to white cardstock with masking, texture paste, color shine sprays and stamping.

A Stitched Lace Border was dabbed with metallic gold paint and whilst still wet, super fine
 opal glitter was sprinkled over the top. The border was then cut into pieces and affixed
 to the background.  

The solid negative piece from the larger Lace Heart Frames was inked black. Some texture
 was added with masking and diamond dust sprinkled over the top. When dry color shine
 was spritzed over the top.
 Some clear drying glue was then applied randomly, with more superfine glitter sprinkled
 over the top.  A altering similar process was applied to a Corner Arch.
The same process that was used for altering the Stitched  Lace Border was also applied
 to the pretty Lace Heart Frame.

The 'Love You' word has been heat embossed first with peridot embossing powder and
 then with black. Metallic gold paint was then lightly dabbed over the top.

Geneive Corners have also been heat embossed with black embossing powder and then lightly dabbed with metallic gold paint. One was positioned to sit over the solid heart and the
other tucked under the bottom edge of the photo.
To add depth, the chipboard elements were layered with fussy cut elements from
 patterned papers and a few pretty flowers.
