This Girl (2Crafty Chipboard)

Hi, crafty souls,

I'm sharing my second layout for 2Crafty this month.

This Girl

My layout features my daughter. I can't believe how fast she grew up: she's already reading!

On my background, I used some clear gesso all over. (I forgot to show this step in the video tutorial, sorry!) I then spread some white gesso to create the area where I'll spread some color.

Some modeling paste, shimmering paints, sprays, stamps and ink were used to create the background.

My main composition is built around the beautiful Ava's Frames piece. I painted it with purple metallic acrylic paint.

I used flowers, die-cuts leaves and flair badges to embellish my layout.

I thought it looked good, but I wanted to add another piece of chipboard, painted in blue metallic acrylic paint, this time, so I went for one Heart Charms piece.

I placed it towards the bottom of my picture. All around the main cluster, I used some micro beads, some glass glitter and other mica flakes to add texture.

My title piece is the This Girl chipboard, which I painted with the same purple metallic acrylic paint that I used before.

I made a video tutorial to share my creating process with you. I hope you enjoy it.
