Let’s Chat About Chipboard!

Hello Everyone! Sonja here to talk to you about raw CHIPBOARD.
Raw chipboard is a blank canvas…the possibilities are endless? I grabbed a bunch of raw chipboard flowers from my stash and played around with a few techniques. Here are some quick and easy ideas to get your creativity flowing (clockwise from top left)…
-Cover with strong double-sided tape (I used Be Creative) and cover with loose flock. The center of the flower is covered with clear seed beads.
-Paint a small flower white, then use black ink and a text stamp. Heat emboss with UTEE to give it an epoxy look. Top with a clear button and layer onto a felt flower (mine’s Creative Cafe).
-Crackle Paint is awesome with chipboard, as well as Adirondack Paint Dabbers, both by Ranger. I painted the green flower with crackle paint, then inserted a decorative brad. The next flower was painted with a paint dabber then topped with a white rub-on. I doodled along the edge of the flower with a white pen.
-The final flower was sprayed with Glimmer Mist! I then used a large eyelet and small brad to finish it off.

In my July class titled “The Best Hugs” (running the week of July 20th), we use patterned paper to cover a raw 6×6 chipboard album. It’s on display at the store…check it out during your next visit:)
Dig through your stash and see what creative ideas come from playing with chipboard! Happy Scrapping:)

    Yup….that is the Sonja I thought it was…boy, you really are busy and have really spread yourself out with so many different projects and people you are involved with…I don’t know how you do it all and get anything else in your life done! I find myself too dedicated to my family life to spend half the time on scrapbooking you do but I guess we need people like you to teach us new things….R.

    It’s called multi-tasking (and a helpful & supportive hubby)! *L* My kids go to bed at 7:30, so I have 2-3 hours before my bedtime to scrapbook. Yep…no television for me (I’d rather be scrapbooking!). I also find that being organzied helps too…I work from kits & assignments and sketch during the day so by the time I get to my desk, the layout’s half done. All I need to do is piece it together.

    Thanks for taking the time to leave us a comment…R…whoever you are!
