At the Park
Hi there fellow crafters, hope you have all been having heaps of crafty fun. Today I am sharing with you a layout of my little girl and her best friend. Like most kids, my children love going to the park, A2Z have some amazing scraplets that are perfect for "Park" layouts. I have chosen to use "At the Park"
My favourite thing about using Chipboard on a Layout is all the different things that you are able to do with them. I had fun with this Chippy.
I have coated it in Gesso first and then once dry I have coloured it in using Gelly Roll pens. I have fallen in love with these pens, they are really sparkly and I love that. I did not have a brown in the pen for the tree trunk so I have used a cats eye ink pad to colour it in. Before colouring it though I used my Prima distress tool and distressed the tree trunk a little just for a bit of added interest. I have then given the whole Chippy a coat of glossy accents.
This is a close up of the tree. You can see that sparkles in the green part, and can see a bit of the distressing in the trunk.
The layout itself I have kept pretty simple. I have used a Kraft background, which is something I haven't really worked with very much so I am still a little unsure about it. I wanted the chipboard to be the stand out on this layout so have kept embellishments fairly limited as well.
That is my share for now. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed my post. Have a great weekend :)
