May Shares for 2Crafty Chipboard - #2

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog, hope you are having a lovely day.
I have just come back from a trip across the border to Victoria to help our Niece celebrate her 50th Birthday!!!  Crumbs, every time  I turn around someone else is reminding me that I'm getting older.  Stop it people ... I don't like it one bit!!!  LOL!!

Anyway, today I am sharing part 2 of my 2Crafty May reveals.  This one is a small Journal cover.  

The papers used are from Megs Garden's Forgotten Meadows Book Kit.  I sprayed it lightly with Sugar Plum Fairy Glimmermist and also added a little texture through a stencil.

2Crafty Chipboard used
 Stitched Lace Border

Tiny Leaf Stems

 Mini Flourish Pieces

 Leafy Rounds

All the chippies were first coated with gesso and then the Tiny Leaf Stems were painted with a deep green acrylic paint and daubed with 'Peeled Paint' paint dauber.  I also rubbed the edges lightly with a gold stamp pad but, unfortunately, that doesn't show up in the photos.

The Stitched Lace Border  and the Mini Flourish were coloured with 'Burnt Sienna' acrylic paint and then covered with Crackle Accents.  Once they were dry, I rubbed over them with 'Gathered Twigs' Distress Ink to accentuate the cracks.

Here is a sneak peek of the inside of the Journal showing the Leafy Round.  This was also coated in gesso and then daubed with 'Peeled Paint'  and 'burnt Sienna' acrylic paint.  The tiny berries were coloured in bright red paint so they would stand out.  This is one of my favourite chippies, it is so delicate and unusual and looks fabulous on any project,

This small Journal was actually created as a DT project for Megs Garden so I actually killed two birds with one stone, so to speak.  I will be showing the inside pages on the Megs Garden Blog in the near future.

I so love creating with 2Crafty Chipboard and I hope I have inspired you to do so as well.  To take a look at all the awesome creations by my Teammates HERE is the link to the 2Crafty Blog.
