Tess's Week - Treasured Moments

Hi WOW lovers, Tess here. I am taking over the blog for the week and hope to show some techniques with chipboard that will inspire.

Firstly, how awesome were the AltaMATZ videos that Sue put together? There were so many great techniques to play around with.

Secondly the February challenge is still open and can be found here.

For my first post I wanted to share a layout using the 'Treasured Moments' title (WOW1715) and Curly Heart Flourish (WOW1000).

I have coated both pieces of chipboard in white Mister Hueys and allowed it to dry. I have then sprayed it with Heidi Swapp colour shine to give it its beautiful teal colour.

As I wanted the title to stand out I have put a layer of dimensional magic over the top to give it a nice shiny finish. When using mists and Dimensional Magic, it is best to have each coat fully dry before applying the next.

The Curly Heart Flourish has had a light sprinkle of Matha Stewart crystal glitter over the teal mist while it was still wet to make it stick. Once dry I have shaken off the excess glitter that didnt stick.

It was just enough to make it stand out but in a completely different way to the title, even though they are the same base colour.

Thanks for dropping by, and I will be back again tomorrow with another chipboard technique.
