Supplies I am using for this project:
Maya Road Flower Petals Chipboard
My Minds Eye - Laundry Line glitter paper (as you see I am only using a strip of the paper. This is such a great way to use up all the scrap paper we have laying around)
Basic Gray- Precision File Set
Ranger- Crackle paint
Therm o web - glue stick
First thing I like to do is get out my chipboard pieces and line them up to make sure I have enough scrap paper to cover all the pieces.
Next I take all the chipboard pieces and use the glue stick to cover one side of the chipboard then add to the back side of the pattern paper.
*Like my hand models? (this is Drew my little two year old helping me.)
Make sure all the edges are covered with your adhesive.
This is why I like to use a glue stick vs. a dry adhesive.
As you see here. I just glue everything down at the same time.
Then I cut out the chipboard from the pattern paper. You don't have to get that close to the chipboard because the next step will take care of the overlapping paper.
Next I take the file set and sand down the extra paper on the chipboard. I do sand in one direction..this prevents the paper from trying to lift off the chipboard. This gives it a slight distressed look to the chipboard.
*Drew did such a great job sanding down the pattern paper.
For the center piece, we took the crackle paint and just slapped it on to give it a simple coat of color.
*Sammie loves using the paint. Check out the nail polish.
Finally we have our completed flower pattern paper chipboard accent.
Come by the store to see the final project. I love the new Laundry line from My Mind's Eye. The pictures just don't do it justice. I would love to see your pattern pattern covered chipboard elements. Post a picture or link to your picture to this post and I will randomly pick a winner for a gift pack from my personal stash. Post pictures by Monday, Sept. 22nd and I will post the winners on next weeks Tuesday tips. See you next week. :)SESIL
