Spread your wings...

Hello and Happy Monday!

Tina here today with a layout, featuring some beautiful UmWowStudio chip pieces, customized in color, just perfect for my layout.

While raw chipboard is beautiful sans color or product, coloring a piece of chipboard to suit the color palette you are inspired by, is pure magic.

The process to add color to my chipboard was very simply and easy, and the end result is gorgeous. 

To create this beautiful watercolor effect, simply apply spray mist (with a brush) to your chip in several gorgeous colors.  Let the colors mix and blend and set aside to dry.

I backed each Soar Chipboard tag with a corresponding tag from the 7 Dots Nature Walk collection.  I love how the pattern peeks through the cut out.

I also applied the same technique to this large Butterfly, and Butterfly Confetti, then applied a bit of Glitter Paste to the large Butterfly for an added glimmer.

To add continuity to the entire layout, I applied the same Spray Mist to paper embellishments, stickers, and patterned paper.

So next time you are looking for a perfect embellishment, but do not have anything in your stash, pull out your UmWowStudio chipboard and create Magic!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week.
