2 layouts for 2 Crafty Chipboard

Hello ladies!!!

Back with you today with 2 layouts, which I hope they will inspire you!
The pages are built on the amazing 2 Crafty Chipboard!
I have realised that when I use a couple of these magical chippies,
there's no need for lots of embellishments, 
except some few complimentary, such as flowers and gauge!

Ok this is my first one

"Forever Happy"

Lots of 2 Crafty gorgeous chipboard, as you see!

Let me share some details

I used the Diamond Panel in two ways: 
First as a mask
I sprayed on my background twice (in two different colours), 
because I love the shape that the panel has (diamonds)!
And then I placed it on the background and built my big cluster on it!
I also tucked in a Groovy Flower in my cluster (I can't do without, it seems)!

It's no secret that I adore the 2 Crafty Loopy Font and let me tell you, 
I chose this specific Pinterest photo just in order to match with
the "Forever" & "Happy" Loopy Font words! I misted the chippies 
and added some glitter for extra sparkle!

For a romantic yet bright layout such as this, I couldn't omit the Leafy Rounds!
They are so delicate and beautiful, I had to add them to my cluster (both of them). 
They blend so nicely with the rest of the elements, don't they?

Last but not least, I placed Madeleine's Flourish Frame on top of my photo,
in order to draw the attention on the photo! 
The frame was gessoed first and then misted with gold ink,
as I wanted it to be soft and glowing at the same time!

Now let's see the second page of mine.
"Crossing Paths"

My in-laws are celebrating their 45th anniversary in few days,
so I wanted to make a gift to them for this occasion!
Having their home decoration in mind, 
as well as their colour tastes, I chose an earthy colour combo.

As you can see, I used the Wildflower set (yep, almost all the items)!
I painted it with gesso and green ink and then added Gold Strips on the chipboard.
I did that in order to give the feeling we get in our fingers when we touch wildflowers and greens from a meadow.

A few touches of orange, just to accent some places.

Hopefully you have all enjoyed looking at my layouts this month,
as much as I've enjoyed creating them.

Come to light

Good morning everyone!

I would like to share with you a page made with the awesome 13 Arts "Romantic Garden" kit!

I created my layout in a very "mixed-media" way! I played with almost every kind of 13 Arts media
and I had a blast!! 

As you see, I have used gesso, modelling paste, mists, acrylic paints, glitter and splash inks!
Yes, I did overdo it!

The majority of the embellishments can be found at the Romantic Garden kit, so if you buy it, you will have so much yummy stuff to play with!

A few details of my page

For your information, the set includes 7 papers (3x13 arts from the collection of Frosted Life + 4xScrapberrys), Mini mist Ayeeda Pastel Pink (15ml), Farbka Ayeeda White Paint (22ml), Set of roses, 6 pink twigs, Feathers blue, two types of string, white lace, tulle, pink stripe beads, large white leaf, flower material, mini envelope white, white feathers. In addition, creative silver wire, which can be arranged in any shape!

Let it snow

Μια νέα πρόκληση ξεκίνησε σήμερα στο 13 Arts, την οποία επιμελήθηκε η ταλαντούχα Jelissa Mei!

Σας παραθέτω τους κανόνες αγγλιστί, για να είμαι ακριβής!

Rules of the challenge # 23:
1. Use a white background for your project. It can be cardstock, watercolor paper or patterned paper. You can have motifs and designs that are coloured but the base must be white and the white should still be visible after all your alterations.
2. Use a black and white photo. For cards or art journals, your sentiments/journaling should also be in either black or white.

3. The colours on your project should come from paints or mists, or any other colorants (distress inks, water colors etc). This applies to embellishments as well ie. if you use flowers or letters, they should be white or cream and you color them with your paints or mists. There's no restriction on what colours you want to use - you can have rainbows or you can have all black and white.
4. A song (title or words are ok, in your language of choice) as your theme/title.

Αυτά είναι τα βασικά κριτήρια της πρόκλησης! Είναι 4, απ' ο,τι βλέπετε, αλλά ας μη σας φοβίσουν, είναι για καλό!! λολ

Η δική μου σελίδα είναι αυτή
(η μάσκα που χρησιμοποίησα για το φόντο είναι της Kasia Krzyminska, την εχω ερωτευτεί)

The song I chose is Bing Crosby's "Let it Snow". Most of my embellishments were white and then painted with 13 Arts Mists, Gesso and Glitter. Some of them were re-painted! I also added some Silver Hologram Glitter, in order to give my page the sparkle I always find in snow!

Glorious Fall Tag

Hello everyone!

October is already here and I just can't express how happy I am that fall has finally arrived!
Along with winter, they are my favourite seasons. 
For some reason, I bloom in fall lol!

So in order to celebrate the arrival of fall, I created a tag in all the fall colours,
which I plan to hang on a wall of my living room!
As you can imagine, the Ayeeda Mists did all the work for me...

So here is my tag

and some details

The background is made with Ayeeda Gesso, Modelling Paste & a mask.
I always want the backgrounds of my projects to display a good amount of texture, so the above-mentioned media are my no1 choice!

The gold glitter strips can turn an ordinary project to glorious, don't you think?
When the colour combo I use allows it, I don't forget to add some!
