Christmas inspiration with Lindy Gillespie


Hello 2 Crafty friends, 
It's December and a few weeks away to Christmas,
so I have 3 projects today 
plus a couple of cards
based on the Xmas theme.

'Celebrate'


                                 On the first layout I like to try different colour combo
                                                       for Christmas layouts.
                                         I have used Heidi Vine,Funky Snowflakes
                                                      and the Title Celebrate.






                                 On all the chipboard i started out sealing them all with a coat of gesso,
                                and on the edges of the vine i ink with Prima attic dust, just leaving the
                                      snowflakes white and spraying some mist on the title Celebrate.


                                                       'Merry Christmas'


                                                     
                                                      On my 2nd layout I used
                                                 Nella Frame,Brush Stoke Tree,
                                             Holly Leaves and Merry Christmas

                       On the Frame and the Vintage Border and the Holly Leaves I left natural,
                                   the Brush Tree I gave a coat of gesso them embossed in white,
                         finally the Merry Christmas title i cut into sections and embossed in silver.

                           
   

                                                         I also have 2 Christmas cards


                                                      'Merry Christmas'
                                                    On this card i have used the Star Of David
                                                        which i left natural and the Star I painted
                                                                    in white acrylic paint.
                                                    
                                                   

                                              'Very Merry Christmas to You'

I have used the same technique on the 
Brush Tree, the Doily I cut in half and painted in white.




Wishing  everyone  a merry Christmas
  and a happy New Year.


I hope I have inspired you to use some fabulous
2 Crafty chipboard on your next layout too.
until next time.
