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:)
