2Crafty March Projects #1

Hello everyone and welcome to my Blog.  Hope you are having a great day and I'm so glad you popped in for a visit.
It is my turn again over at the 2Crafty Blog and I have two Art Journal pages to share with you. 
During March, 2Crafty is a major sponsor for Scrap Around the World and the Team from 2Crafty are Guest Designers.  I was so thrilled  to be a part of this Guest Team and, as the post went live yesterday, I am able to show the details of my contribution.  
This is my double page ...

... and this is the mood board.  I basically just went with the colours, although the Square Collage panel is sort of reflective of the tech drawn robot.

2Crafty Chipboard product used

 Square Collage Panel

 6" Clock Frames

Mini Hearts and Stars

To create the background I lightly coated the pages with some watered down gesso and then glued some strips of paper through the middle.  Once it was dry, I sprayed over it  with 'Peacock Feathers' Distress Spray Stain and created some texture with paste and a stencil.  

Added some stamping and used a strip of gauze, which was coloured with some watered down acrylic paint, as a base for the Square Collage Panel This was randomly coloured with Black Soot Distress Ink. 

Coloured the Clock Frame in the same manner and used it as a frame for the little quote, which was found on the net.

  The stars are from the Mini Hearts and Stars and they were coloured with acrylic paint.  
2Crafty was also a major sponsor over at CSI in February and I was happy that I was able to be a part of the GDT for Case #156.  This is the double Art Journal page I created.  
  I actually shared this on my blog when the GDT went live at CSI and, rather than go through it all again here, if you would like to take a closer look, HERE is the link to that post.
 Thank you so much for taking a look at my little creations and I hope you have found some inspiration here.  I urge you to take a look at the fantastic array of chipboard pieces that 2Crafty Chipboard produces, you are bound to find something that you simply cannot live without!  LOL!!  HERE is the link.
