Cheeky and Special, for 2Crafty Chipboard


For my first page this month for 2Crafty Chipboard, I have used
 my favourite colours.
The base of my cluster is a piece of Square Collage Panel.
I have cut this in to a few pieces to give it a different look.

For my title I have chosen to use the Loopy Font word Cheeky.
I have coloured this with a gorgeous teal paint to match my 

I chose to colour the Square Collage Panel with my black
big brush marker.  This has helped make the chipboard pieces look more
prominent on my page and also draws your eyes to the photo.

My page has been finished off with a scattering of stars from
ATC Tiny Hearts and Stars and a Doodled Arrow.
The arrow has been placed at the bottom and points up, guiding
your eyes back to the photo.

'Special Day'

This page was started with a pair of Feathers.  These have been painted
with acrylic paint.  To add some extra shimmer to these, they have been
heat embossed with some clear embossing powder.

My Special Day title has been coloured with my black big brush
and again, to add some shimmer this was heat embossed with
clear embossing powder.  
The title originally said Special Days but because my layout
is about one particular day, I have trimmed off the letter S.

Poking out under the feathers are some Small Film Strips.  These have
been coloured with my black pen.
The film strips haven't been embossed.  By leaving these plain it 
creates the look of different textures among the embossed pieces.

All topped off with a little piece of Film Strip on the side.

2Crafty Chipboard, Tons of Fun

'Tons of Fun'

One thing I have noticed the last couple of weeks is that
I tend to have circles on most of my pages.
When I thought about it I realised that this has been
an ongoing thing for me for quite a while.

This page obviously is no exception.  I have again
used some Circle Dot Frames.  
I have painted these with Colour Blast paste.

The 'tons of fun' has been cut from the set of
circle words, and again, anything black on my pages has
been coloured with my Big Brush.

The feathers above have been cut from the Fob Clock Cluster.
I felt the clock was appropriate for this page seeing as how the
photos span over 12 years but I just couldn't get it to fit.
I have carefully cut the feathers off the side, painted with
Prima paint and then rubbed a little gesso into the grooves.

Colour Me Positive Week 1, Gratitude

I have taken my first step into the world of art journalling
and am joining in Lulu Art's Colour Me Positive.

One page and I'm hooked, lucky I have an old 
encyclopaedia which has heaps of pages for me to fill.

2Crafty Chipboard, Love


Please remember to become a 2Crafty blog follower & leave a comment to
be eligible to go in our monthly draw for a great chippie prize pack.

This month I've got back to my regular white cardstock
background and layered it with lots of gorgeous 
2Crafty Chipboard.

I have painted some Chicken Wire with Colour Blast paste.
By adding a little water to this, it has made an awesome shiny
paint for the chipboard.  Bonus is it dried super quick.

This has been layered with a couple of Wicker Christmas Wreaths
which I messily painted with Dylusions paint.

The little emerald circles have been cut from a Circular
Panel.  These ones have been painted with Prima paint.

I have also used a piece from Circle Revolutions and the 
Love Line word.  These have been coloured with my 
black Big Brush.

The page has been finished off with some more circles that
I have cut from the Circular Panel.
