For the love of all things chipboard!

Chipboard is a very versatile addition to any scrappers stash. The possibilities are endless which is why i love it so. These days there are so many fun and creative shapes and words to cover every theme imaginable for your pages.  Below i have chosen to showcase my top 10 favourite chipboard layouts and the treatments i have given them. Some of these are new this year (told you i have been scrapping up a storm behind closed curtains) and i have thrown in a couple of oldies but goodies.

I have embossed the chipboard vine with gold embossing powder and left it a little messy(i wasn't to particular having a smooth finish) which once dry i rubbed my black Staz On ink pad all over it making sure i got into the grooves. This gave it an aged look. For the chippy title i slapped on some Gesso in a rough many too. There is also some left over chipboard frame behind the photo which i left as is.

I am in love with this page so much. I painted the chippy frame with kaisercraft "Hot Pink" paint and then added some micro beads to it. Of course there are also some chippy letters which i added some doodling to as well.

For this one the chippy title"You & me" i used my finger to apply some Inka -Gold (Lavared) Once dry i stamped on top and using my finger, again, applied a little texture paste to it. The other chippy i left raw and doodled around it. The two pieces were one but i cut them in two to make it go further.I even salvaged the packaging from the Imaginarium chippy i used ;)

I had only just finished this one for the OUAS and Challenge YOUrself challenges and really fell in love with it I pulled apart a chippy brick piece and stuck it raw on the page. Then using an old credit card i scrapped some Gesso over the top of it. I added some polaroid chippy pieces too which are in original condition.

Here i took some chippy squares and covered them in different patterned paper and then each one ended up different.

This was a fun page to create. For a start i used a blue background,(really am trying to get out of my white background comfort zone), the chippy title had an ink pad applied to it and then Kindy Glitz painted onto it(yes painted as i feel it gives a better coverage than straight from the bottle)

Another new page created from our 6000ish road trip to the NT. What else is there to do but take selfies. The two chippy pieces were treated with different ink pads and then added.

I left the chippy raw in this as it went so well with the page that way, as there was already so much going on.

 I had so much fun creating this page. The chippy title i covered in paper, sanded and then inked and doodled. A very time consuming task but the outcomes are amazing. The other pieces are grungeboard which i inked and sprayed with water to give them the watercolor effect and lastly doodled around.

The chipboard circles were actually a 12x12 piece which i cut up to manipulate around my page. I painted them and then used them as a place to journal on.
So lovelies that is it, my top 10 favourite chipboard layouts. May there be many more to come. Have a lovely rest of your weekend :)
