Framing Photos and Gina's

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing a special layout of a vintage photo that is very special to me.  I chose to use a couple of different pieces of Gina's chipboard frames that seemed to fit the photo perfectly.

To achieve the rusty patina look of the chipboard pieces, paint the chipboard two coats of gesso.
 Paint each piece with a metallic paint in an aqua color.  
Ink all pieces with Versa Mark.
Cover with Utee embossing powder and heat set.
Spray your pieces with a brown shade of glimmer mist or mist of your choice.
Rub with Inka Gold in Copper.

Cherish Layout

Hello and welcome to a new weekend inspirational piece. I created this layout because I needed to "Cherish" the fun moments. My daughter is an amazingly cute and ridiculously silly girl.
So I am cherishing the moments and created this to share with everyone.
My chipboard got a coat of gesso and some gelatos blended with my finger and water.
After that dried, I gave it a coat of crackle paint to give the hearts some amazing texture. 

I embellished the rest and had fun with my mists and paints to give the background some finishing fun. So I do hope this brought you some inspiration. Now go forth and have fun creating!

Family Life Mixed Media Wall Tag - Rubbermoon Cross Promotion

Good morning friends! Today I have a special project to share with you. All this month we have been working with the amazing stamps from Rubbermoon. I chose to use the house stamps, they came with some stamping blanks which were designed by Gina for Rubbermoon. 
The stamps from Rubbermoon are so wonderful! They are some of my very favorites to use. I chose to do a little family life scene on one of Gina's Super Large tags. I have used these tags a lot, they are really a staple in my craft room.
I chose to do some mixed media using sprays and texture paste for the background until I got the desired effect I was going for.  I also used paints and sprays on the stamping blanks and when I was happy with the background I used the house stamps on them, and they came out so cute!
I layered on some laces and flowers, and used some of the sprays on some vintage dictionary paper I had then punched out the butterflies and added them to the tag. I then added some fun words and metal pieces from my stash to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Frog and Kitty Cards

Hi everyone! Melissa here with two cards using Rubbermoon Art Stamps. I kept it simple when it came to decorating the images themselves. I used a little colored pencil on the frog, and left the other plain. I surrounded both with lots of different things.

Thanks for looking!

Snowmen & Birds by Guest Designer Heather Hudson

Hello Friends!!
Heather here and today I would like to share with you another
Guest Design Piece I have done using  
Gina's Chipboard
and some fabby Ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon. First up, I have a couple snowmen that I have done in a shabby chic style using Gina's Snowman Banner and My Floral Digital Papers.

I covered all the pieces with my papers then inked the edges with Ranger's Frayed Burlap.
I used Fauna, Storm, Just Peachy and Arbor Glitters on all of my snowmen.  I also added 1/4 natural crochet lace on each of the hats and then topped them with snowflake chippies that I covered in Fauna glitter.  Then I placed a Deep Ivory Mulberry Rose or
Baby Pink Mulberry Roses on top of that.  I added vintage buttons tied with  Cotton Candy Baker's Twine or Aqua Baker's Twine.  The buttons and snowflakes were elevated using
I also played with one of Gina's Birds on Key Set
I painted the piece first with Gesso, then water colors in blue, pink, and dark yellow.

After I painted it I put a layer of matte gel medium over it.  This way I could add another layer of water colors.  Below you will see I used some Golden Brown on the Key.
Next I added some darker blue to the blue birds and red to their chests and golden brown to the beaks.  I also stamped on the key with Tree Branch Archival Ink.  

For my Final step I added another layer of matte gel medium and then doodled with a black pigma pen.  I just love how it turned out!

I used Gina's
