Chipboard Adventure............

Today is my first Gina's Design project since joining the team.  When I got all those wonderful packages of laser cut chipboard I had so many wonderful ideas going through my head and this weekend was the first I got to sit down and play.  So I took a canvas board and painted it with crackle pain in antique linen, once it was dry I stamped french script over it in black, now I wonder what it might have looked like if I had done it in a brown....  maybe next time.   Then I set to choosing some chipboard:  the birdcage is painted with shabby shutter crackle paint and at first I wanted to use a bird but this butterfly was just calling my name. So I spritzed it with some golden paint, and then a couple of sprockets/steampunk spritzed and I was good to go.  Added some paper and ribbon and flowers.  I am thrilled with the way it came out and think it will look so sweet on a wall- but for now I tried it on a frame.


Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you will stop back tomorrow for my BLOG CANDY!
