A chippie here a chippie there......

What on earth am I talking about?
Chipboard of course...
I want to share with you some of my layouts and altered items using chipboard
why you ask
well why not ?? LOL
Seriously though

are having a design team call
I thought I would try my hand
I am already lucky enough to be using their products as 
Imaginarium designs sponsor

so on with the show we go....
here are my 10 fave creations using 
starting from most recent

Here I have used Imaginarium Designs numbers, 
alphas toy train, little boy and a swirl, 
they have been painted and some have been glittered!

In this layout I have used chipboard from Sfragidomania 
I painted the chandelier in gold and white then added bling for added detail, the little table has been spritzed with glimmer mist and touches of gold added for detail then smothered in glossy accents

In this layout I have used the clock and cog parts from Imaginarium Designs
The chipboard was gessoed then misted and then I flicked blue paint all over them...

In this layout again I have used Imaginarium Designs cogs 
and two titles the cogs were colour washed blue also used as a mask 
and the titles misted in black for dramatic effect!

This gorgeous butterfly from Imaginarium designs
 was painted black then outlined in rock candy stickles I think
...something glittery anyway!

This layout was so simple yet so effective I think.... but I'm wierd
the chipboard is from Basic Grey and all I did was spray paint over the chipboard for a dramatic effect...
I am such a drama queen!!

In this layout I have used the cloud + rainbow and sun from Maya Road 
and sun glasses  from Basic Grey
a lot of  misting and inking went on here! LOL....

This layout is full of left over chipboard Alphas from American crafts and  Basic Grey
I think its quite obvious what I did here....LOL

This is my all time favourite layout
I used Basic Grey chipboard alphas and number
the letters were inked in 3 colours then covered in a mix of glossy and crackle accents
I just love the effect

my final creation is this completely crazy looking birdcage
 using the Tim Holtz die (thank you eleni) as I do not own a die cutting
machine..I am open to donations LOL LOL!!!
Truly it does look better in real life....
the chipboard was gessoed then
 misted in white then inked in blues and Green 
and of course smothered in crackle accents
of course copious ammounts of bling was adhered!

and that concludes this walk down memory lane with my use of chipboard
