We're just a tad late with our beginning of the month blog post. Lots goes on in February for us Mums at YCW's, the biggest of the jobs is getting the kidlets back to school for the new school year. It's now the second week schools been back, so those of you with kids that have gone back to school, I hope you're falling back into routine and finding some creative time to do the things you love.
Maybe sharing what Sue's been up to might help get your mojo to get going and further down the post we share some new goodies at Your Creative Wings that will hopefully help even more.
Don't forget you can now buy our chippy retail from us at the above link.
Here's what Sue's been up to.
Hi everyone, it’s Sue here with you today sharing a simple technique for colouring your chipboard. I love to use my mists to colour chipboard, especially my colour shines. My favourites is gold. I have found that when you spray your chipboard, you end up using a lot of mist to get a good coverage. So alternatively, I open my bottle of spray and just let the colour drip from the tube onto the chipboard. The idea is you create a nice thick layer of colour and are not wasting any with overspray. It takes a little bit of patience, but the effect is worth it. You do get a better coverage this way, as compared to using a paint brush.
Here is a layout that features this technique. I used one of the gorgeous Ornate Frames.
