Decorated box by Judith Armstrong

Good morning A2Z fans. Judith here to share with you something a little different from me. I decided to decorate a box using A2Z Scraplet chipboard and stencils.

I started with a plain brown papier mache box. I undercoated it with gesso and then painted it with pink acrylic paint.  I added some hearts to the sides of the box using the A2Z Scraplets Heart in Hearts stencil and some coloured texture paste. I decided the hearts looked a little to bright so dry brushed some more gesso over them and the pink paint. I also added some pink velvet ribbon to the edge of the lid.

The A2Z Scraplets Heart of Hearts Shape just fit perfectly on the heart shaped doily which I adhered to the lid of the box. I stenciled a couple of hearts through the stencil onto hearts on the chipboard. 

Then I set about embellishing the top with lots of flowers, some beads, butterflies and a sentiment.

Thanks for looking

Good Morning Scraplets

In this layout I have used several different pieces of chipboard.
The Rose Blooms Shape has been covered with gesso sponged on then painted, 
while the pink paint was wet I sprinkled on blush coloured micro beads. The 
Treasure chipboard has been painted with pink paint and covered with Crackle 
Accent. The Circle is from the Circles Nested Set and has been painted white 
and I have wrapped some parts with embossing cotton to match the hand 
stitching around my layout.

Cheers - Tanya x

I decided to create a little water scene from one of my Fiji Photos. I have used the engraved Anchor and also pieces from the Sea Creatures 1 Set  . As always I have primed my pieces with gesso to start, as so the colours do not soak into the chipboard.  I then coloured the pieces with water paints , watercolour pencils  and also metallic rubs on my Anchor

Create ~ Love you to the moon and back

Good Morning fellow scrappers , Mary here today to share a layout with you.

I am not normally a brights scrapper , but I think the photo of my Grandson called for brights.

I have used the A2Z Scraplets Stars ~ there are 8 stars on the sheet, so I normally get about 3 projects from a sheet.
Also the wordlet Create  comes in a pack of 7 different sentiments in the Live, Laugh Love Arrow wordlet set .Over at the shop you will find every word and sentiment you can imagine for your layouts.
For my chipboard on this layout I simply primed with gesso and then painted the chipboard with a Kaisercraft Scarlet Paint. For the stars I then went around the shape with a white signo pen to highlight them.
I hope I have inspired you today to create using the amazing chipboard from A2Z Scraplets.
Happy Creating
