A little bit of vintage with Lindy Gillespie

Hi everyone 
Today I'll be showcasing some vintage styled Layouts

'Pure Bliss'

The first one I have gone with the pink theme 
with lots of stamping and mixed media on the background.
and lots of 2 craft chipboard
just positioned them  under the layers
including Round ornate frame,
  Tiny Kathleen Frame,1 inch Hexagons
Swirly Flourish Border

                                        I first painted the chippies in white distress paint (twice)
                                            with a sponge to give it a distress look,
                                               then dabbed some mist on top in light pink.


Again on this layout i have used a mask but this time i misted 
a certain area on the paper and then back misting.
After I painted the chippies with gesso
I dabbed some beige ink lightly on top,
The chippies including Tiny Funky Frames,
Fence wire Panel,Mini Fob watch,
 Vintage Element, Giggle and Corner Baroque

                                                   This layout was a challenge from YSMY
                                                         The chippies i have used are
                                                      Corner Evie,Enjoy, Circles
                                                     Once again I treated the chippies with a
                                                               couple of coats of gesso,
                                                     then inked slightly with Prima  shabby tote.
                                                              Thanks to everyone coming
                                                                to have a look at my work,
                                                           hope i inspired you to use some
                                                                    2 Crafty chipboard,
                                                          don't forget to upload your pages

Each and every one of these pages are absolutely stunning Lindy!! Not sure which is my fave, it's a toss up between the lovely soft colours of the first or the soft vintage look of the third, but then I love the colour on the second one too .. decisions, decisions. Darn it, I love them all!! ox
