Recently I was asked what was my favorite scrapbook embellishment
and it was hard to just pick one!!
So I decided to make a post about one of my favorites, chipboard.
(P.S. Are you seeing the air underneath baby girl?
The teacher put the sweater on the floor and told them to jump over it!)
Chipboard is so versatile - you can texturize, emboss,
paint, stain, cover it with paper or glitter; the possibilities
are endless. You can even leave it natural, adding a very earthy feel to it.
Chipboard has gotten quite fancy lately!
You can find beautiful intricate designs in chipboard!
I love that!
Chipboard comes in all shapes and sizes, even letters.
I love that you can change the color to what suits your needs -
I tend to like the browns myself!
Here is a layout that I had finished but felt it needed a little something more.
I added the chipboard gate and there it is! The perfect touch - I like it much better now!
I colored this chipboard with my Gelatos
(No surprise there! LOL!)
Here the chipboard needed to stay neutral for the multicolor background!
A little shading goes a long way.
Now I could not talk about chipboard without throwing
You can always over chipboard with paper.
These little hot air balloons were naked chipboard too -
I painted them, added Glossy Accents & a little bling.
All the butterflies on this canvas are chipboard - even her wings!
They have been painted, manipulated, embossed and glittered!
This bumble bee was naked chipboard too!
I loved making that stain glass look!
The bird was naked too - how fun is that?
You know I love my Gelatos and PITT Artist pens!
Of course you can always cut your own chipboard,
there are so many dies available nowadays!
Oh did I forget stamping?
You can stamp, run it through a corrugated brayer and ink chipboard.
As you can see the possibilities are endless!
See why I love chipboard?
I hope this gives you some ideas!
I am so thankful for products that enhance my creativity!
Speaking of being thankful don't forget about my giveaway!
