 I know you have a lot to see so I will show you just couple of simple tricks;
First you can paint, stamp and use stickers on your chipboards like I did here.
 Sometimes you don't need to be very precise when you paint, a little messiness looks good on childrens pages;
 With some chipboards you can lay one on the top of another one;
With your stencils you can create textured surface with gesso and pain or mists;
This is my page with older black and white photo . You can really see how my little girl colors my world for me:)


 I am almost done, two more photos:).
Nice way to finish chipboard is to cover with with glue and micro beads;
 I also recomend you to use contrast colors for titles;
  Would you like to know what you can winn?

  29. Hi, I liked your pictures, because I am a fan of bold colours, it just always turns out this way. Well here in Europe we dont have a great choice of chipboard, so I would say: more retailers and not always the old stuff they sell here for ages the same. And I like titles, words! Bye bye from Switzerland!

  59. The contrasting title is beautiful!! I wonder what glue you use for micro beads, I find that nothing holds them very well. I wish someone would do a tutorial on micro beads... The golden lattice background on your micro beads close=up... was that the original paper or an effect you created? It is stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  60. oops.. forgot to answer the question!! I really like sports and tween activities related embellishments and those are harder to find. i have pretty much bought all the ones Magenta makes (thank goodness!) but there is definitely room for more.
