October Inspiration + VIDEO Tutorial with Kripa

Hello friends,

Kripa here, with my two projects for October. 
Further down the post, I have a video tutorial as well.

Christmas Cards
 All 3 cards have been made in a similar way. 
First, some texture paste through a stencil on watercolour paper. 
Next some Twinkling H2Os (watercolours) & finally 2craftychipboard pieces.

I have not coated any of the pieces with gesso. Ive directly applied paints on the chipboard using a make-up sponge.For the card below, the title from the Merry Christmas Script Card Pack has been glued on a vellum piece.
This card is my favourite because of the very Majestic Reindeer chipboard.
 2crafty Supplies Used:
Linear Snowflakes
Majestic Reindeers
Mini Bauble Trees
ATC Tiny Hearts & Stars
Merry Christmas Script Card Pack

 Today is Picture Perfect - Canvas
The idea for this canvas was inspired by the challenge prompt at More Than Words . The word inspiration Delicate immediately made me think of babies, flowers, lace, tissue paper. I also picked intricate, lace like 2crafty chipboard pieces - Dreamcatcher, Circle lace panel & Sequin negative bits. 

All the chipboard pieces have been coated with white gesso a few times. On the Dreamcatcher chipboard above, Ive decoupaged roses from an IKEA serviette and then dabbed white gesso to soften it followed by the lightest coat of teal paint.

... and the video of how this canvas came together. 
I hope you enjoy.
