I will warn you that this is going to be a rather long post. I hope you will bear with me
as the is a reason for this ;)
These are mostly projects that if you have followed me for awhile,
you will probably have seen before. But I hope you don't
mind me sharing them again and sharing some of how I achieved
what I did with the chipboard :)
So first up I will share
Where will your path Lead?
Ah I loved this layout. I really wanted to go for an aged looking garden gate for this layout.
But also wanted to keep it kind of girly and and a bit of shine:) So first I coated the chipboard piece
in Pewter Liquid Pearls. I let this dry and then grabbed out my inks. I have slightly coated certain parts of
the gate in pink and green ink. I opened the gate to where I wanted it and entwined some roses
up one post of the gate. I thought it worked quite well. Here's a close up :)
Up next is the layout Oh Baby
For this layout I used quite a bit of different chipboard pieces. I really love how the heart turned out in
this one. First thing I did was paint the chipboard white and let it dry. I then used an
Music Note embossing folder and ran it through the Big Shot. To really highlight the music notes
I then grabbed out the trusty liquid pearls in pewter again. The I painted this onto the raised
music notes. For the title and the scroll, I misted these with a lovely pale blue and added some bling.
Me @ 34, is a rare layout :) but a kind that I'm trying to more of...because it's about me LOL
Ok with this layout I have used some gorgeous butterflies. One I have left raw and simply added some bling. The other I have painted in a pink that coordinates with my papers. I then coated it in a layer
of Diamond Stickles. With the scroll I have painted it in a lovely teal and again
added some pearls.
Feel free to take a break if you need to :) Up next is Believe in Yourself.
I have used a corner scroll and a dress form for this layout. I have painted the scroll in black
and glossed it with glossy accents and added some pink pearls. I LOVE dress forms!
With this one I have painted it, androughly inked the edges in a dark pink. I have then
dressed it in a cute tulle skirt and added some black pearls to tie it into the project.
Next is Sweetness
The chipboard frame I have used in this project have been coated in a lovely bronze
Shimmerz. :) Sorry don't have a close up of this one for you.
This one is Us Girls
Ah another dress form. For this one I have left it raw, but I have dressed it in a cute
dress that I actually made from the bottom of one of my daughters old dresses.
Added a bit of lace at the waist to belt her :) The scroll has been painted and glossed aswell.
My Little Man
Quite a simple layout. Love this penny farthing and wanted it to stand out,
so it has been painted in red and I have also given it some shine with glossy accents
and added some pearls to the wheel centres :)
Next is Hope,
For this one I have again used the Bronze Shimmerz for the scroll. Love a good shimmer :)
For the clock I have used a dark brown distress ink on the hanger and edges, but
have left the face raw. I have used an olive green shimmer on the title.
And next is Live for Today
I kept this window arch quite simple with a coat of light pink paint that
coordinated with my papers.
And here is another
Love these doilies too! Is there a piece of chipboard I don't love??LOL
Again quite simple, a coat of pink, but a shimmery pink this time :)
And here is Reach for the Stars
I got this awesome brick wall, but decided to use the outer frame and coat in a glossy black.
I have used some of the bricks, but have left those raw. And the skull has been painted in a cool
silver to match my little boys shirt :)
And finally (phew I think I heard you say LOL) is
With this layout, I have left the doilies raw, but have misted the butterflies pink, such a
gorgeous shimmery colour :)
Well if you have made it this far...I'm impressed :)
I had so much trouble choosing which projects to share with you today, as you
may be able to tell I am a bit of a chipboard fan hehehe I think I shared
a couple more than was planned.
Feel free to browse my blog as there are many more layouts there using chipboard too!
I hope you have enjoyed this post. It has given me some renewed inspiration I think.
(1)Paint - but wait! No brushes, sponges, etc. Use your creative hands to get paint onto yourlayout.
(2)Stacked chippie! This is a great way to use up varying sizes of the same design or combinetotally different chipboard patterns, pieces and styles to create something new.
(3)Song lyrics - these can either make up your title, your journalling, or just a line on the layoutsomewhere. Any song you like is fine, from nursery rhymes to your favourite rock anthems!
So here is my DT example
