Playing With Chipboard!!

Hey scrappers!I'm here to share a few fun creations using some chipboard from Fabsraps and Dusty Attic all from the Flying Unicorn Store.

I have a brand new baby great neice!! So of course, I had to scrap a couple of her pictures!! There is not a better subject to work with than a brand new baby!!

For this layout I used some Graphic 45 "Once Upon a Springtime" Collection. I chose  a Dusty Attic Fairy and Fence to add to it.

I did some fussy cutting and used pop up dots to add the cut outs on the lo to give it a dimensional look. For the Fairy, I used paints left over from the Dec Kit and painted her body first, wings and hair. It's not the best..but it was fun to do!! I then covered her with some Rock Candy. When painting chipboard, be creative! Your chipboard doesn't have to be one color..mix, blend..distress..have fun with it!

 On the fence I lightly brushed some white Crackle Paint with my fingers over it. I then used my heat gun to dry it and took some Aged Mahagony Distress ink on my blending tool and inked it a bit.

 For this first layout I used a mix of FabScraps High Tean and Prima Moulin Rouge papers.

For the first chipboard piece, I chose a flourish from FabScraps and painted it with Peeled Paint Distress ink, let dry, and then used a script stamp to stamp over it..just for a little effect. I then covered it with a light coat of Rock Candy and sprinkled some Diamond Dust on top.
The next two pieces I chose were from Dusty Attic. I chose a DA border trim and candlealbra. I used Glimmer Glam on the candlealbra and distress stain on the border and added a little liquid pearls to top it off. The Glam lets you get a different effect than regular stains or inks. I paint a few coats of the Glam on and then 'pat' a generous amount of it on top of the dried layers.You can cover with Rock Candy or Glossy Accents if you wish also.

I hope you get some scrappy creative time for yourself this weekend!! Visit our GALLERY and FORUM for some inspiration and fun challenges! RAK's are given every month! So come on over..we'd love to have you!
