Hello friends! Today I just wanted to do a quick post more of a little inspiration. As many of you know I have been designing for Gina's Designs, these are beautiful chipboard laser cut pieces. Now I love chipboard ..... what crafter doesn't once she gets into getting messy and "dressing" them up. So I thought I would post about some quick reminders on decorating your chipboard! I think that sometimes I forget all the options!
So these first two photos are of ideas for painting your chipboard. I pulled out my adirondek daubers and a paintbrush and went to town. Now you could daub them but it didn't give me the texture I wanted. You don't see this here but I also added some stickles to the word dream to give it a little sparkle.
This doily I wanted to have a little spritz of color vs the white it was so I pulled out my airbrush system and copics. What is nice about this technique is that you can make it just a light shade of the color, a darker shade or a mixture of a couple colors (very pretty!). The world is your pallete.
This last photo is the chipboard covered with designer paper and embellished with buttons, ribbon and lace:
and a little inking along the edges.
Well I hope this little post gives you some inspiration to go out and alter and embellish your chipboard. Check out what Gina has HERE. Also- do tell, how do you dress up your chipboard????
Thanks for stopping !
