A 12 x 12 Layout by Melissa

Hi everyone! Melissa here with a 12 x 12 mixed media layout for Gina's Chipboard Laser Designs.  I have titled this layout "Happy New Year".

This leaf frame is so beautifully designed.  When I saw it, I had to use it.

I always enjoy trying different ways to decorate these little beauties. Here are the steps:

1. Apply gesso.
2. Apply green chalk ink.
3. Randomly stamp on Distress Inks in Vintage Photo, and Peeled Paint.
4. Sprinkle Utee on and heat.
5.The Utee hadn't stuck too well,on the left side, so I experimented by putting on a thick layer of Crackle Accent, on the left side.
6. Dry brush gold leaf ink lightly all over, leaving most of the green exposed.

Thanks for looking!

A Themed Shadowbox by Donna and a Spooky Altered Book Box by Deann

Hello Friends!  Today we have two amazing projects to share, first up is Donna with another of our October cross promotional projects.

Welcome scrappy friends! Today I am sharing a 7 x 7 Shadow Box from Gina's Designs along with a gorgeous brown fabric rose spray from Craftsupplies1.


I just love the pearl sprays!

I used two sizes of the new Layered Flourishes. These are so cool! I painted the top and bottom pieces with white gesso. For the top piece of the small flourish, I used a walnut stain distress paint dabber, then lightly rubbed on Inka Gold when the paint was dry.

I used weathered wood crackle paint on the top piece of the large flourish. The large flourish is straight like the smaller version, but I cut it in half to make a "corner" I used weathered wood crackle paint on the top piece of the large flourish. The large flourish is straight like the smaller version, but I cut it in half to make a "corner" flourish.

All of the dress forms were covered with white gesso and then painted with distress crackle paint.

This was a really fun project! I hope you will take a look at the cute Themed Shadow Boxes and the NEW Layered Flourishes! 

Thank you so much for taking time today to stop by Gina's!!!!

Next up is Deann with a Halloween project she has created with one of our book boxes.  She has used the box in a fun and unique way!

Good morning, Deann Here with a Spooky Book Of Spells!
I used a Book Box- Small to make my Spell Book. On the cover I added one of the Spiderweb Shape Sets and a spider ring.  I wrote the word spells in hot glue. To try this yourself, let the hot glue dry, then cover with masking tape. Use a stylus or something with a round tip to emboss around all of the raised areas. Add a coat of Gesso, when dry add Dark Brown or Black craft paint. I rubbed Gold paint over the raised parts.

The inside of the box has been painted Black. I made a dimensional grave yard scene inside 

 I used a Raven from the Spooky Shape Set.

 This would look so cool sitting open on a book shelf!
I used the small box but there are three sizes to play with :)

Projects for our October Cross Promotional by Deann and by Lynne

Hello Crafty Friends!  We are back today sharing even more of the amazing projects by the Gina's Designs team for the October month-long cross promotional with Craftsupplies1.  First up is Deann with a really unique and fun use of one of our shaped mini albums.

Good morning, Deann here sharing another Gina's Designs with Craftsupplies1  promotional project.
I used Gina's Owl Mini Album to make my Banner.

 I used two different embossing plates on the chip board pieces, then layered several colors of Distress Ink.

 I then layered two different laces from Craftsupplies1.

 Next I added the center of the owl and a leaf from the Fall Shape Set.

On top of the leaf I added a doily and mini roses from Craftsupplies1.
I loved using this shape for a banner, There are tons of other shaped Mini Albums in our store that would make really cute Banners :)
 Hope you give this a try,

Next up is Lynne with a gorgeous home decor project.  The embellishments from Craftsupplies1, and Lynne's artistry,  complemented the ornate beauty of our wall shelf beautifully!

Hi everyone, it's Lynne here!  I was happy to be able to combine the gorgeous goodies from Craftsupplies 1 with both the Victorian Wall Shelf from Gina's Designs and the beautiful Bobunny Madeleine papers to create this project.  I love the way the beaded trim looks along the edge, and the flowers and bird matched so perfectly with the colour scheme I chose.

I added a mirror to the opening in the center and surrounded it with cheesecloth and bling. The shelf was easy to paper and to assemble; all I did after attaching the paper was sand the edges a bit and ink them lightly for a more finished look. I love the way it turned out and since I'm just moving into my new (and bigger!) scraproom, it'll be a perfect little addition to my decor. Try one yourself, it's so easy to match it to any colour scheme or theme you'd like!

Burlap Canvas by Debbie

Hi everyone!  Debbie with you today to share a Burlap Canvas I recently created using Gina’s Designs Laser Cuts.  Below, I’ll share the techniques I used for the chipboard pieces. (The dragonflies are die cuts that I cut from Kraft paper )

I painted the chipboard fountain with black Gesso, and then used a stencil and modeling paste to add texture to the surface. I repainted it with black gesso and then rubbed it with Turquoise and Copper Inka Gold Rubs. The fountain itself is 10" tall so I've used it as a focal point on the 12 x 12 canvas.

The cattails, grasses, and foliage were simply gessoed, then inked with distress ink in Vintage Photo and then I added my rubs again in several different colors.
Thanks for stopping by Gina's Blog today!! Be sure to check back often, Gina is adding new products daily!

Projects by Kim and by Shanna for our October Cross Promotional

Happy Friday Friends!  We have two more fun projects to share today as our month long cross promotional with Gina's Designs and Craftsupplies1 continues.  First up today is Kim to share her latest project. 

Today I would like to share with you my mixed media canvas. I have titled this canvas "Birds of a Feather", as it features the Feathers Shape Set from Gina's Designs and also some amazing items from Craftsupplies1.

I started the canvas with some tissue paper in blue, and some stamps with a feather image in the background. I then mod podged it onto the canvas and added some sprays in matching colors to give more texture to the background.

I used some of the black and silver trim from Craftsupplies1 to mimic a branch shape to have the birds sit on.

I used the new Scribbly Frame  - Birds behind my stamped image of the birds and embossed it in black and teal. I then tucked the feathers in and around the images of the birds and added some beautiful flowers and pearl strands from Craftsupplies1.

 I also used some of the acrylic hearts from Craftsupplies1 to accessorize the piece.  They were the perfect colors of black and teal.
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at my project today. Don't forget to check out both stores, the links are below! Have a great weekend everyone!

Next up is Shanna with an altered project to share.  I really love the unique and fun fantasy feel!

Hey everyone Shanna here with a new project to share. This month the team has been sharing creations from our cross promotion with Craftsupplies1.

 I had something that was just waiting to be altered and I had yet to play with the Mushroom Shape Set. So I dove in with some fun papers and got to work.

I gave each chipboard piece a coat of gesso. After that the mushrooms got some Lindy's spray and gold rub n buff. 

The butterflies also got a coat of rub n buff. 

I also added some fun flowers, lace, and metal pieces from Craftsupplies1.
