Marjolaine here today with a tutorial on how to dress up your chipboard. Follow along to create unique chipboard pieces for your layouts or artwork.
Color your chipboard with a permanent marker and allow it to dry. You might me tempted to skip this step since you'll be covering it up but it's really important to give your piece good coverage.
Cover your chipboard with a layer of crackle paint of the same color making it thicker in some areas. Allow it to dry.
Apply some distress ink with a blending tool getting the ink in all the cracks. It helps if your ink is a different color than your paint.
Color a different piece of chipboard with a permanent marker and allow it to dry.
Paint the chipboard with a stick of Gelato from the same color family and use your finger to rub the color in.
Add another color of Gelato in random places to add highlights.
Cover your chipboard piece with 3D Crystal Lacquer or Glossy Accents and allow it to dry completely.
Make a dot pattern on your chipboard with the dimensional paint and allow it to dry.
Your chipboard pieces are now finished and will make lovely accents or embellishments for any scrapbook page or mixed media project. Why not try different combinations of mediums, the results might surprise you!
