'Curious' by Lisa Griffith


Hello 2 Crafty friends! I have several projects to share with you today. 

 Before we start,...
to be in the draw for our monthly chippie prize pack,
  all you have to do is be a 2Crafty Blog follower and remember to 
comment on any of the girls gorgeous inspiration in the month, the more times you 
comment, the more chances to WIN!

My first project today is a mixed media layout inspired by this sweet
 photo of a girl reading Alice in Wonderland.

 Some of my favourite 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces are the panels and borders. 
I love to cut them up and use different sections around my layout.

2 Crafty Chipboard products used:
'Diamond Panel'
'Tahnya's Border'

I painted both chip boards with brown ink and then roughly heat 
embossed them with metallic embossing powder.

"Gift Bag"

My next project is a kraft brown paper bag that I decorated. 
I thought it would be nice to use it to wrap a gift for a friend.

2 Crafty Chipboard pieces used:
'Flourish Adornment Set 1'
'St. Nick's Snowflakes'
'Hello Beautiful'

For the title piece and the snowflakes I first painted them with white gesso, then added
 some pink gelato,  then I embossed them with aged silver embossing powder.

For the flourish piece I painted it with Lumiere metallic silver paint. 
I love how frosty all the chippies look in silver.

My last project is an art journal spread that I created for another team,
but used the beautiful 'Glenda's Swirl' painted with brown ink to add some vintage flair.

Thanks for stopping. Until next time.
