Welcome to the "Chime with Chipboard" Blog Hop

 Welcome to the
“Chime In With Chipboard” 
Blog Hop!

If you arrived here from Scrapping Outback's blog
You are on the right track! You are now at Sandrine’s blog!

We are hopping from blog to blog to learn all about chipboard and to get inspired with awesome tutorials and layouts loaded with chippies!

So let's start with my tutorial:



 Gather your supplies:
- 12X12 chipboard sheet
 - White Gesso
 - White Acrylic Paint
 - Coloured Acrylic Paint of your choice
 - Heatgun
 - Paint Roll
 - Baby Wipes
 - Cutting/Distressing Tool (Craft knife etc.)

 Start by applying white gesso with paint roll all over chipboard sheet, let dry completely.
 Apply one generous coat of white paint, let dry completely.
 Apply third coat, contrasting colour this time. Dry using a heatgun, STOP when paint is not quite dry
 but has lost its shine.


Take craft knife/distressing tool and scratch off top coat randomly, it depends on the look you want to create, I scratched all paint in some areas.


 Now take a baby wipe and remove top coat in some areas, you want to create an aged/worn background, use your creative intuition. You can't really go wrong here!

 Repeat scratching and wiping until you are happy with the result.

 One more tip: before starting, think of where your photo is going to be and really distress around that. You really want to see your beautiful background!

This is the layout I created with my background!
