Fall in love with staircase
Greetings ! This is Sneha with a new project made using GSLCut chipboard. I made a canvas using staircase chipboard. This canvas envisages couples' love. I am totally in love with this chipboard. It has given a different dimension to my project 👍.
This project was very simple and quick to make. As always I started with priming my canvas surface with a white gesso and applying texture paste via stencil.
Next applying some crackle paste on the deserted areas.
Next embossing the chipboard using distress embossing powders.
Next is arranging this chipboard as a center point. I have glued cardboard on backside of the chipboard and then stick it to the canvasusing gel medium and hot glue. This gives the chipboard sturdy and elevated look and will also help me in arrangements of flowers and other diecuts in the next step.
Now I started gathering my flowers and die cuts for the next step and adhered all in a way that I like using gel medium and hot glue. Starting with a couple die cut in the center of the staircase. And then going with the flow.
Towards the end of the project I addedsome sparkle and some pearls to some of the flowers in the arrangements to elevate them. And some touch up of yellow and rose pink acrylic color. Finally a sentiment.
And here is the picture of completed project.

The bathing machine
It's Karolina here. I am sharing with you my new inspiration.
The bathing machine;what an awesome product!
The first step was to assemble all parts to make the bathing machine. To do it, I use glue.
You can see this step in my video.
Unfortunately, the camera stopped recording after the first step.
But for newbies, this short video could help.
When the glue dried, I covered everything using black gesso.
The next step is to cut out all parts from paper to decorate the bathing machine outside and inside.
Using two square cutting dies, I made windows and added some lace.
I added some texture paste to make a more realistic roof then I splashed some Glimmer mists.
I cut out some graphic elements and decorated the bathing machine.
To decorate the back of the bathing machine, I used some shells and glued them using a heavy body gel.
In the end, I added some colourful and shiny little stones and used gold wax on the edges and the steps.
