My first 2Crafty Chipboard October share.....includes a VIDEO TUTORIAL

Today I'm sharing with you a recent creation I created  for 2Crafty Chipboard.
It's titled:

'Loving these Moments'


It's a layout that celebrates my brother and his son.
I used the following 2Crafty Chipboard on this layout:
'Loving these Moments title'
'Chicken Barbed Wire - Small'
'Steampunk Gears - Small'
'Steampunk Gears - Medium'
'Chain Circle Frames'
I cut down the 'Chicken Wire Panel - small' and smeared Finnabair's Rust Paste in Gold, Brown and Red randomly over it.  I just used my fingers. 
I love the rust look and the texture this creates.
These products are available from Scrap Matrix.
I then added some Silks Acrylic Glaze Paint in 'Ocean Wave'. 
I love how this blue colour matches the blue in my photo so well.
Also available at Scrap Matrix. 
I repeated this process on the 'Steampunk Gears - Small' and the 'Steampunk Gears - Medium'.
I just love the rusty finish, especially with that metallic blue added in!
I used some of the 'negative' part of the chipboard from the 'Chain Circle Frames'.  
I added it to the background, and painted it in black gesso for a bit of contrast.

Don't forget to look at the leftover bits from your chippy - they can be awesome!
They also make great stencils.

Can you tell I don't like to throw anything away?
I also applied black gesso to the 'Loving these Moments title'.
 I just love the clusters and dimension that the chipboard gives my layout.
I love how many different options you have with chipboard - you can create so many different finishes and so many different looks. 
Don't these look just like metal?

My paper is from 7Dots Hazy Days collection and I've used lots of 7Dots tags behind my photo and word stickers  (I just love these!!)  Again these are all available from Scrap Matrix.

I created a video tutorial so you can see how I created this page:
I hope you enjoy the video.


I'm still a newbie and creating them, but getting better.

Did you spy my gorgeous cat Maisy on my desk?
She's always in my creative space with me. Usually just off camera. But today she wanted to be totally in it.  Cute, you will notice her move a few times!

I'll be back soon with my next share.
