“Enjoy the Little Things” and “Memories” By Kristine

by admin

Hello everyone!
I am back to show you some of my¬†projects from January ūüôā
I hope you are ready?

Enjoy the little things 

enjoy the little things

I really like to play with colors and different media, like gesso, modeling paste, crackle paint, and so on.
My favorite color of all is Blue, in various color-tones.
On this layout I tried a new technique: how to make a crackle effect with out using crackle paint.
It worked, but the crackle didn’t get as big as I wanted it to be.
So its not so easy to see on the photo, unfortunately..

But what I did was: 
First I took a lot of modeling paste on to the background (thick layer) 
 I found myself a background stamp (I used a brick wall stamp) 
And then I stamped in to the modeling paste, over and over again, creating 
a pattern all over the place. 
Then I dried the paste with the heatgun.
Lastly I sprayed it with ink and then water. 
Vola! You are done ūüėÄ Easy ūüėȬ†

I only painted one of the chipboard pieces that I used on this layout, because I like to use “craft-color” along with the bright colors.
It gives it a contrast, and I love contrast <3
What I did with the ruffled feather (2012223) was:
First I painted it with gesso, dried it, and then I painted it with the same colorspray as I have used on the background.
When the colorspray was dry, I put on a lot of  Stickles, in the color Crystal.

Chipboard I used on this layout: 
–¬†ruffled feather (2012223)
branch frame (2012081)


MemoriesThis layout is a typical “don’t think, just create” layout.
Often when I scrap, I just put something on my layouts.
The first thing I grab or put my eyes on, and make it work from there.
Like on this one, I put on a lot of ink, then some leftover paper, and washi tape.
Painted over it all with gesso. Found a stencil, and put over some modeling paste.
I don’t think at all, I am just doing something, and its so¬†inspiring!

Chipboard I have used on this layout:
Light Bulbs (2012333)
 Photography pack (2012109)
 Clock hands, mini (2008131)
 Memories theme pack (2009037)

I hope you found some inspiration here today ūüôā
Welcome back ūüôā
