Good Vibes
by Sabrina Turpin

Hello 2Crafty friends!

One good thing to come out of the various pandemic lockdowns is that I had time to pick up a new crafting skill: I started sewing! At first, I was doing facemasks to help people stay safe&stylish. But over the months I became more comfortable and I recently completed my first pieces of clothing for my kids. 

Last week, I completed my very first long-sleeved t-shirt, custom made for my son, using fabric he choose! We are both super happy with the result so this really deserved a nice picture so I could create a layout to celebrate this success! I've picked some awesome chipboards that fit my son and a color pallette that matches the t-shirt's.

 "Good Vibes"

On the "Brick Panel", I roughly applied some diluted green-gold shimmering paint, still letting a bit of the chipboard color and texture show through.

For the "Foliage Set 5", I used green-gold embossing enamel then inked the borders in black. On the "Steampunk cog strips", I applied pewter paint, then added some rustic mint paint applied very roughly and finally applied some gold wax with my fingers.

On the "Steampunk Gears Medium", I applied the same rustic mint paint and gold wax as on the "Steampunk Cog Strips" (but not the pewter paint), then inked the borders in black. For the "Circle Frames", I just roughly rubbed gold wax, to let a lot of the chipboard color through. On the title, "Good vibes", I used black-gold embossing enamel.

For this layout, I used the following 2Crafty chipboards:

Steampunk Cog Strips [M00783]

That's all for me today! I hope you enjoyed this layout and that it gave you some inspiration for your own creations. I'll be back in a few weeks with a new layout to share with you guys! See you soon!
