layered chipboard


Hello everyone

This post from me is short and sweet, with a single layout, some very nice pieces of the new WOW and some easy techniques to alter it.

I actually really like raw chip, but altering it does give you the chance to make it suit the paper ranges you are using.
On this layout, I have used this awesome flourish...., to alter it i have painted the flourish twice with teal acrylic paint and then heat dried it, then covered it with paper tole gloss.

( this gloss is great with chip, paint it over your chipboard after you have coloured it with paint, textas, colour pencils and it will blend the lines and also give it a sheen)

and this cool long garden fence..... this i have painted with black matt paint and then lightly highlighted it with some 'make it with stone' gold and rock spray paint
and the flourish surrounding name plate.... i found this great new way to enhance the chipboard using the Krylon 'make it like stone' textured spray paint, it comes in some great colours and dry quick and looks and feels great.
here is a close up of the frame with the Prima flowers and butterfly on top. To enable my name to sit on the top of the frame properly, i have cut a piece of clear transparency and stuck in under...you can still see the flourish but the thickers wont move.
then, I have layered the flourish on top of the fence, using the fine ends of the flourish to wind around the spears on the fence. I have then added some vine ribbon and handcut leaves and the Prima flowers.

Then add the frame to the top, giving a three layered effect of chipboard.

I love the effect that layered chipboard has.
The paper range I have used is from Scrapbook Savvys march kit, its the LYB Twig range.
This is a photo taken by a photographer friend Tanya from TMK photos and its one of my favourites of me!
