Hi everyone! I am so excited to be working with DeeDee and the rest of the talented gang over at UmWowStudio. I love chipboard and I especially LOVE laser cut chipboard. Throw some awesome UmWowStudio chipboard together with a divine Punky Sprouts mini album and you end up with messy fun and a treasured keepsake.
I made this mini album from my sister and my niece and since she is such a ham, I wanted to use fun and bright colors.
Here's the inside of the album
Want to see what I did with the fabulous chipboard? The butterfly on the cover is pretty straightforward. I left the layers as they were meant to be then painted the top layer with gesso and applied a fine iridescent glitter.
For this butterfly, I applied a coat of gesso then sprayed it with some Color Shine in "Georgia Peach". When it was almost dried, I added a layer of glass bead gel.
For the floral embellishment, I decided to try and layer a couple different mediums. The base layer is gesso then acrylic paint. Once the paint was dried, I added blue glitter onto the flowers. Here's where the fun is. For the stems, I added a layer or Bombay India Ink. Talk about color enhancement!
This star looks really cool. It looks like it's covered in lace but it's not. That is washi tape! I just taped over the star then trimmed the edges.
Can you tell I love playing with the chipboard? There's really so many ways to alter it. Just dive in and get messy!
