Tess's Week - 'She is Ours'

Tess back again today with another layout to share using the gorgeous Words or Whatever products. Today I have another idea for altering your chipboard.
 
She is Ours
Using chipboard flourish from Mini Flourish Pack (WOW1837) and chipboard Flourish Tag (WOW1307)

 
Todays layout is using good old traditional chipboard. Like many people I am not a big fan of the plain old grey that the chipboard comes in. Its hard to alter with mists as it soaks into the chippy and the colours don't come out vibrant or the exact colour.
 
To combat this I have been using white Gesso to 'prime' the chipboard and give it a white base prior to altering it.
 
 
When I coated this one I was looking for an uneven look on the chipboard to give it some extra character (which is exactly what I got). The mist has still soaked through a little, but the colour of the mist is accurate to what comes from the bottle.
 
 
Thanks for calling past again today. I will have another share for you tomorrow.
