This project made the Top 3 at Make My Monday! :)
I finally got some of Time Holtz's Distress Paints. And hopefully I will have the metallics next week (EEK!).
I have a little story to tell but first let me take care of business. I am submitting this chipboard page (or wall hanging) in the challenge at Make My Monday: Create Your Own Background.
So I was at my local scrapbook store (where I bought my paints) and the owner said do you play with chipboard? And I kind of shrugged and said a little bit. I have letters and shapes. She hands me a piece of 6X6 chipboard to try the paints on.
At first I am thinking I should prime the chipboard with either white paint or gesso-both at the house and not with me. But I started playing and putting the paint on my craft sheet and running the chipboard through-and then it muddied! Thankfully there is the second side! So I put a color or 2 on the chipboard and heat set it with the heat gun. And that keeps it from turning brown!
So here is my chipboard "page." I used Tim's tissue paper to make the ribbon. The background is Distress Paint (barn door red, salty ocean, broken china, moss, mustard seed, and raspberry). Also, I used Tim's new washi tape (also bought today yeehaw!) and stamps that were at the scrapbook store. I added some gears and a clock. I also added the little saying at the bottom. I put salty ocean over the metal and wiped it off. That is how the letters are blue instead of metal colored. It really makes them pop. :)
Here is a close up. I loved making this chipboard "page" that will go on my wall. That's my son on a Harley at the Harley store at Downtown Disney. Lots of fun!
Thanks for stopping by friends! Until next time my friends...it's time for more distress paint journeys! :)
