Good evening, and welcome to Words or Whatever Blog. I am in charge of commencing week 2 of chipboard reveals showing you some techniques to utilise your chipboard and OTP projects just that little bit more.

To start with, let me introduce myself briefly. I am a wife of 7 years and a Mum to my main scrapping focus points Charlotte & Oliver. I began scrapping about 7 or so years ago when my best friend Sarah asked me to go to a class with her. I cant say the class taught us much, but it was certainly the starting point to what soon became a very enjoyable hobby that now consumes a great deal of our social time, and we now have an awesome group of girls that we get together and scrap with.

So when I opened my email the other week and it announced that I had been selected on the 2011 WOW Design Team I was no less than ecstatic. I had been purchasing WOW Chipboard from my LSS Scrapbooking Delights already, so joining this team was totally awesome!!

I received a fabulous selection of goodies in the mail from Suzanne and I have been playing with some of them already. Here is a couple I have completed.

Professional "Dance" Poser:



The word DANCE is from WOW. I am usually one for leaving my chipboard raw or simply spraying it with Glimmer Mist, but this time I decided to get all messy and jazz it up a bit.

* First I inked with pink all over
* Then grabbed a deeper pink and inked just the top half trying the get a smooth transition between the colour change
* Then using purple did the same but from the bottom.
* I added purple "frinkles" just to the bottom edge of the word
* Sprayed the whole word with Pearl Glimmer Mist
* And last but not least, the messiest part - used Dimensional Magic all over to give it....you guessed it....some dimension!



M164 - Car Desk Tidy

Very cute little "Chev" which I am sure my little man will love when he is a little bit older. For this I have covered it all in Cardina Ink, followed by Kindy Glitz for the lights and bumper bars. The black outline I have simply used my zig pen and coloured it in.



I again used Pearl Glimmer mist, then once dry gave it a light coat of dimensional magic (my new best friend)



Included is a pen tidy, but I havent used it this time. I actually didnt put these items in the Chev, my daughter Charlotte did. I am wondering if she might just claim this for her own :)



So there you have it...My first DT reveal for WOW. You can see more of my work on my blog
