Tutorial and a RAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I thought I would do a naked chipboard tutorial. No don't worry I won't be the one naked LOL! The chipboard will be.

Here is an idea to dress up your plain chipboard letters or anything.

To start you will need these supplies:

3D Crystal Lacquer

I used Acrylic paint - Pumpkin and Copper Stickles

Pick your chipboard you would like to alter.

Paint your chipboard the desired color of your choice and let dry completely.

When completely dry add your choice color of stickles. I just blob it on and rub with my finger.

Here is what it looks like with paint and stickles. Let dry completely.

Then you can add your 3D Lacquer. Completely cover and let dry.

Here is what it looks like done!

Here is my Layout. My DD had a Basketball Tournament and I kept the schedule and scores to put on the layout.


How about a little fun and a RAK?

If you become a follower you get a ballot! If you are already a follower get a ballot when you leave a comment so thats 2. Leave a comment get a ballot. Do a layout or card using the tutorial I just showed you and send to me (e-mail) and you get a ballot! So you can get 3 ballots!

You have until March 12!

Good luck and have fun
