Learn how to apply foil to chipboard for a colorful result.
What a fun way to upscale chipboard using foil. This chipboard was purchased at the Dollar Tree but any chipboard pieces will work. There are different ways to get texture with the foil based on how you apply the transfer gel. After foiling, I used the chipboard on the front of a card and added additional color and texture with cardstock pieces.

Applying Transfer Gel on chipboard can be done in a variety of ways. Using my finger to apply it gave a very nice texture to the surface when the foil was applied. You can see the entire transfer process and card making in the video tutorial below.
The close-up image shows the texture detail from the foil on the chipboard. This version is the one with less foil applied as seen in the video tutorial. The brushstroke-like effect is very nice in person, while the overall color shimmers with movement.

Working with a kit from Tres Jolie, I made a chipboard gear necklace. I am a guest designer for the month of June. #sponsored
This month I am a guest designer at Tres Jolie Kits. I was sent the Cards, Tags, and More kit. The kit included chipboard gears. I used those to create this chipboard gear necklace.
I used a variety of metallic paints on the gears. To begin I painted one in brown/bronze and the other in silver.
The necklace would be fine in brown and silver but I tend to like a bit more color so I used a blotting technique on the silver painted gear. I also painted the backs of the gears so they would look finished.
After gluing the dried gear pieces together, I added a thin layer of UV Resin. The resin adds a finished glossy look to the piece as well as adding stability.
Wrapping craft wire around the end of my paintbrush made for a bail for the back of the gears.
I Super Glued the bail to the back of the gear pieces that were glued together. In the above photo you can see that back of the piece is painted.
All that is left to do is thread the cord and ribbon necklace through the bail. I toyed with the idea of making this into a pin or a necklace. Obviously I chose the necklace. Which do you think you would choose?
Make a layered artwork using materials from Denise Boddey Designs. #sponsored #designteam @DecoArtAcrylicPaints @ScrapbookAdhesives
Today I am posting as a part of the Denise Boddey Design Team. I am working with cut chipboard and a card topper. Painting and layering the elements make for a beautiful work of art. Framing mine, I used a frame from the dollar store that I did a patina finish on to coordinate the colors.

I originally thought I was going to make a card, but as the pieces came together I knew it would work better as a framed piece of artwork. I am really pleased with the end results. What do you think is best, as a card or framed art?

Looking at these Sprouts Panels from Denise Boddey Designs, I thought they would work well sandwiched together. Then I needed to decide what to put between them. Could I make faux stained glass with alcohol ink? Why not give it a try!
Today I have a post on the Rinea blog sharing a video tutorial on my creative process making the mixed media piece above. This piece includes a poem by Maya Angelou the Caged Bird. This month the design team at Rinea is partnering with Creative Embellishments for our posts.
