Two Projects from Gerry

Hello Creative Friends!
This is Gerry here today to share with you two of 
my last projects I created using totally awesome and so
beautiful chipboard from Imaginarium Designs.
Yes, we all love our chippies 
and we always have FUN creating with them!
Both my projects today are made on canvas and on each
canvas you`ll see my girl or my boy smiling.
 As a matter of fact this time my kiddos
requested I scrap them separately and at the same time...ha ha!
This wasn't a difficult task for sure - I had a blast!

{IDDL 0004} Two Hearts with Cross Flourish
{IDP 0036} Wishing You Happiness
{IDBK 0003} Paris Door Album
{IDT 0014} 4 Small Butterflies
{IDFR 00013} Anna Frame
{IDT 0015} Dress (Smaller)

The cute chipboard dress was painted with white paint twice -
just to be sure that it`s completely covered!
Puffy paint was added only on top and then decorated
with pattern paper, lace and resin (from Webster's Pages)

Love the hearts chippie....I used part of it in previous projects
so I had over the "hearts' mask". 
What I did here was:
1. I applied generously :-) modelling paste to achieve more dimension.
2. Once it was dry I added puffy paint to make it fluffy :-)
3. My final touch was to adhere tiny fussy-cut flourish

And this is the final result...
I added the painted with Glimmer Glam "happiness" 
I used the word "happiness" separately....
Once again the chipboard was treated with puffy paint
so it`d match my hearts.
The bigger butterfly was colored in with liquid paint.
The stunning "Anna Frame" was treated with a few
colors Glimmer Mist and a puffy paint border was added as a final touch.

And my second canvas ....
This is a photo of my son proudly showing his soccer "trophy"
 The photo was edited first black & white
 and after that I "splashed" colour only on the photo he`s
holding of his soccer team.
{IDT 0013} Brackets on Oval
{IDS 0013} Embellishments 4 (6 on board)
{IDW 0017} Congratulations (4 on board)
{IDW 0004} Soccer with Ball

Here are a few close-ups for you...
I added slightly Glimmer Glam on the ball 
and added puffy paint.
The "Soccer" word was separated from the ball and the "curve".
And the ball itself was separated from the "curve".
