I gave them all a coat of gesso, then used ink to color them. As you can see below, I like the coverage to be a little less than perfect. It adds a little character. I cut the Organic Vine in half and used it in two places on my layout.
The largest piece from the Roman Clock and the other half of the Organic Vine
The smallest piece from the Roman Clock Set
For my second layout, I selected Leslie's Dream from the Ombré Dreams Collection. It is one of my favorites with a combination of orange and yellow in the background. This time, I treated each piece of chipboard a little differently.
Here I used one of the Techno Rings as a small accent. I coated it with gesso, and used Distress Stain to color it.
Staying with the circle theme, I added a piece from the Circle Groups. This time I painted it with Distress Paint, then added some Inka Gold on top of that. The paint is barely visible, but it does peak out a little bit here and there. I also chose to fill in the circles with some embellishments.
And here is the beautiful Dream Big word title chipboard piece. Ink was applied to achieve the color I wanted.
The choice is totally up to you when you create your project with chipboard pieces, because you are the one deciding which colors to use, whether it be several different colors, or all the same.
Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your weekend.
