Those Were the Days

In case you have missed it on 2Crafty blog.
"Those Were the Days"

  This time I decided to experiment using techniques that I rarely 
do on chipboard, but they are worth a try.
  So the first LO is called Those Were The Days
 Spring is coming in Australia, but in Europe it is Fall.
 That is why I look at these pictures that were taken this spring &summer 
and miss those sunny warm days so much. I have to confess
 that I hate winter, and this is why  I decided to extend 
 summer in my projects.
  So I took many paints and mediums and 
started playing.
while I was playing with 2Crafty chipboard pieces and realized that the Outdoor Range from Flourish With A Bling is the best match for this LO. So I took the FWAB Nicky’s Beach Huts and FWAB Up In the Sky
  Then I covered all the chipboard pieces with Gesso.
 Then I began to add some variations.
   So I took the Frame Scallop Circle Borders
 The pink one I just covered with Glaze paint, and the blue one,
 I covered with blue acrylic paint, then drew some doodles with a Pearl Pen. 
After it was dried I added  twine over it and drew the dots with 
Pearl Pen Teal.  I love this puffy effect.
  I decided to pop up the Title too and tried this Pearl Pen
 on Those Were The Days Title.

Before the final pearl Pen step, I added several layers of Glaze paint.
and then I realized that I want just wanted to draw.
  So Ana's Vine is the best way to experiment
 with this.

  I covered it with Gesso, then added 2 green colors of
 Metallic Lumiere paint. After that I covered the leaves and the flowers 
with some acrylic paint and glaze paint.


Finally I took my black marker and drew. I even managed to draw a tulip.
 Finally I decided to add Pearl Pen and liquid Pearls too.
You can see the dimension there:

  This summer my daughter received a mountain bicycle on her Birthday
 ( by the way, there are no  mountains in Belarus, lol),
 but she was very happy to have such a cool bike
Before that she had  been very happy with her scooter ( in this photo).
  I decided to add Mini bicycle as the reminder. and you know,
 I'm still singing the song by Queen * I want to ride my bicycle*.
"Beautiful"
 On my second Layout I tried out  some decoupage techniques.


 I took a tissue with floral print and covered the Chinese Lanterns with it.
 I used to do some decoupage projects in the past 
so I have tons of different tissues, so I tried them out  on chipboard.


  I suppose they refresh the LO. what do you think?

Also I decided to add something from the FWAB New Release and
Surely I am talking about FWAB Elise Flourish Antique Brown , and I use Antique Brown Mustard and Brown flowers. They add some vintage look to the LO and I love this effect


and this Chinese theme followed me while I was using
 I covered them with Gesso, then misted with blue Starburst mist 
and embossed with a stamp using Antiquites embossing powder
 for a shabby effect.

and I love how the rhinestones change their color depending on the light
I then  added my favourite 2 Crafty  Skeleton Leaves,
 just slightly misted.
and gorgeous flowers from Manor House Creations
