"Love that Smile'' by Elisa Ablett for 2Crafty Chipboard

'Love that Smile' 

Hi Crafters,

Thanks for stopping by the Blog today.

Elisa here from the design team for 2crafty Chipboard with my latest inspiration for you; 
a colourful boho style mixed media layout featuring some lovely pieces 
of 2Crafty Chipboard and a half mandala background design featuring 
the new Nuvo Shimmer Powders and Finnabair Metallic Wax.

2Crafty Products used:

Amelia Flower Stem - Large
Polaroid Frames
Love that Smile Title

Firstly, for my title I inked the chipboard in a metallic matching ink 
and then roughly coloured over the top with a darker purple paint marker, 
it matches perfectly with the script/handwriting of the title.

Next, I coloured the Polaroid frame in with a black glitter marker to 
create a solid base for my photo cluster and to make the 
colours pop a little more on my next piece of chippie.

For next piece of chipboard 'Amelia Flower Stem', I decided to alter by
first painting it black, then while still wet dipping it in the liquid made
by adding water to my Nuvo shimmer powders. I used the same shimmer powders
on my background as well to add colour and dimension to my mandala.

You can see that shimmer and shine happening on the chippie!

Add a bit of metallic wax by smoothing over the black modelling paste and the black chipboard
with a make up sponge or a dauber. Last details ! add some hand cut butterflies from acetate and paper to add to the boho look of your layout. You could also add feathers or wire or beads as well.

That's it from me today! 

I hope you been inspired to try your very own Boho style layout complete with awesome Chipboard!

Hugs xx
