upside down chipboard

...yeh that's right, ever thought about turning your chip upside down!

Hi San here
....I'm going to share a page I have done, using a chipboard title by WOW, upside down, as a shadow of its self.

This page is of the five boys playing cricket in the backyard after Max's (my baby nephew) birthday lunch....It was fun attempting to use my new camera to get some action shots.

So what i did is very simple, but i think quite effective as a title.

I used the 'cricket' chipboard as a mask, turning it upside down and then misting with Mr Hueys Calico mist and when it was dry removing it, then I have coloured the chipboard with white oil pastels.

To add highlights to the chipboard I have used a pale bue pastel and added it here and there with my finger tips, and then used a sharpie to make the stitching effect, like a cricket ball, then also taking that highlight effect to the shadow.

The bat, ball and stumps are coloured with textas.

I really loved this effect and think its worth a try, even with a fancy flourish or flowers. Masks are great to enhance your base pages and then to add a mirror image is a great effect too.

So...give it a shot
