Hi crafty friends! Leigh Ann here today on the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts blog showing you how I used my chipboard to accent a couple of 12x12 scrapbook layouts!
For my first layout I used the Catweed Shape Set. First I coated the chipboard pieces with white gesso, then I took it way back and used two green colors of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. I gave them several coats, blotting and drying in between, until I achieved the look I wanted. Once dry I assembled my layout. You should be able to achieve this look with any green mica mists.
For my second layout I used the larger piece from the Henna Doodles 2 Set. First I coated it with gold color bloom spray, then I used the mint color Art Alchemy wax over the entire piece. Once dry, I cut it into 3 pieces and used the ends on my layout. I still have the large middle flower for another project. In the close up you can see that I also splattered the color bloom spray on the page behind where I planned to place my chipboard. This helps bring out the gold undertone and tie everything together nicely.
I hope you have enjoyed these ideas for how to use chipboard on scrapbook layouts and will be inspired to try it yourself! I used the following Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Products on these layouts:
