I love to add layers and depth to my layouts, so this month I going to show you how I've used some of the sheets of chipboard from the shop to add a bit of dimension to my layouts, as well as using some of it to make an embellishment for a card.
For my first layout I used the chipboard to make frames for my photos. I simply cut 4 rectangles measuring 3.75"x5". This was the ideal size for my frames as I had printed two photos on a 4"x6" with a border.
All the papers I've used on this page are from the Fancy Pants Designs - The Good Life 6 x 6 pad.
This is a very simple page which tells the story through the photos.
On my next layout I used the chipboard to make dimensional embellishments, and also mounted my photo onto it, to add depth.
As this layout will eventually go into my Niece's wedding album, I felt there wasn't really any need for a title.
The hearts are cut with a die, once from chipboard and then from paper to cover the chipboard.
The circle was cut using a die, then coloured with ink and stamped on.
Finally I made this flower using the Tim Holtz - Tattered florals die, which I coloured with ink and added Liquid Pearls - Onyx Pearl to the centre. The butterfly was also cut using a die and painted with Liquid Pearls.
I hope I've inspired you to use some chipboard on your pages. As usual all the products I've used are linked at the bottom.
