Sisters/ Love you 3- Layouts with new chipboard designs

Hi There!

Shell Carman here today. I hope all the Mum's out there are surviving the school holidays!

Today I have 2 pages to share. We managed to sneak in an early beach visit for Father's Day this year & I snapped some cute pics of the kids.

The Dragon Fly is from the Double Oval Frame. I painted a coat of gesso then painted the top half with Shimmerz Periwinkle then the bottom half in Shimmerz Sky Blue. I then randomly painted some Viva liquid pearl in Lilac & added some Kindy Glitz in Pink for a nice shimmer.

 The Swirly Frame was painted with gesso. I thne painted a coat of Modge Podge & sprinkled some Bella Boulevard Micro Beads in gold over the top while the Modge Podge was still wet.
The Sisters title had a coat of gesso first then was inked with Prima Pastel Blue chalk ink. I used a Kaisercraft crackle stamp with Ranger Distress ink in Walnut Brown also inking the edges. I applied a coat of Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy to add some texture. The hearts were painted with gesso the Shimmerz Texturez in Crushed Coral.
