"Brothers make the best Friends" by Amy Voorthuis

Hello fellow creative souls, 

I am so excited that you are here with us today as I bring you some inspiration with pictures from our summer vacation trip to Greece where we had a lovely time. For my base I used a vinyl record the size about 11,5 inches that I then decorated with beautiful 2Crafty chipboard pieces. 

Brothers make the best Friends: 

 2Crafty Chipboard used: 
Round Flourish Frame
Clock Face Frames
Circle Word Tag Set 1
Fine Word Set Months
Artdeco Frame
Felicity Flourish
Flourish Adornment Set 5
Brothers are the Best Friends

The yellow frame on the top was painted with acrylic paint and after that I sprayed some golden spray over it. The wonderful phrase was treated with the same yellow paint as the frame but then I added three different golden sprays on it. The little clockface was painted with black gesso and some golden coloured sprays and I finished it off with some glossy accents.

The big clockface was first treated with a layer of black gesso then I added two different waxes on it to make it shine a little bit and give it a little color, it's a brushing technique which is so settisfying to do. On the rest of the chipboard pieces I added two layers of white gesso before I altered them further. 

The green chipboard pieces are treated with some green spray & then I blow dried it while spraying them love that effect. On the Artdeco frame I did the brush technique with some white gesso and in the end some vintage golden wax
