Lay out your chipboard and paper pieces that you plan to use. Take a picture (optional) to use as a reference.
Adhere print paper to a 12x12 piece of mat board, distress edges and add brown ink to darken. Make a very watery color combination using Twinkling H20s Mystic Blue and Douglas Fir, pick up with a watercolor brush and splatter over background . Pick up those same two colors with a makeup sponge and apply to background through the stars stencil, as shown.
Begin embellishing your chipboard pieces.
Wrought iron border: Cover with black pigment ink and heat emboss with the Antiqued Iron embossing powder. Adhere along top edge of page, as shown.
Once Upon a Time title: Heat emboss with Versamark ink and Tarnished Gold embossing powder; edge with Branch Bark ink for depth.
Large standing dragon: Draw details in with pencil (Picture 1). Mist lightly with water and begin embossing those lines with an embossing tool. Color dragon as shown with Blue, Lime Green, Teal, Yellow, and Orange Inktense blocks (Picture 2), then go over those with similar colors of Twinkling H20s Mystic Blue, Golden Jade, Douglas Fir, Key Lime, Yellow Rose. Add details back in by going over embossed lines with a black permanent marker. Add Crackle Accents to body and Glossy Accents to wings (Picture 3). Adhere to page with foam dots.
Medium and small flying dragons: Paint one coat of Oyster, then one coat of Warm Gray Silks acrylic glaze. Combine the Mystic Blue with the Garden Jade Silks Acrylic Glazes and brush over both dragons, letting the colors run, heat with heat tool Add Waterfall glitter glue to both.
