Chipboard Layout for My Mind's Eye

Hey, friends!  I hope you're having a wonderful week!  Today I'm sharing my latest layout for My Mind's Eye.  This week we're featuring all the awesome chipboard in the various collections.  I used the new Jubliee Sherbet collection.  It's full of pretty colors, and I just love all the floral designs and the overall girly feel of it.

I decided to create a vertical design by using strips of paper.  I jazzed up the white background first with some modeling paste and a chevron stencil followed by some watercolors.  I also outlined the paste with a silver pen for a little added detail.  I played around with different stitch features on my sewing machine...LOVE that thing!  And I LOVE this silver still my heart!

I embellished with lots of chipboard...the colors are just gorgeous in this line!  These adorable photos are of my sweet Reese from a few years ago.  She was outside at my granny's house, just enjoying the fresh air and swinging her arms all around.  I just love her :)

Beautiful doesn't get any better than that!  I added in some enamel hearts and brads...and some glorious glitter tape from the Necessities line.  I really want to stick that stuff on everything in sight!  Haha :)  It's just amazing.

Here's a shot of more chipboard...and shiny silver piece at that!  Lots of stitching going on...such a fun way to add interest and texture to a page

I really love these chipboard words...gosh, scrapbooking supplies have come so far, haven't they?  Scripty words are just awesome.  Here you can also see a better angle of the paste and watercolors.

One more close up.  I love that pretty flower chipboard piece and the fun word strips.  They look great as stand-alone pieces or layered.

I hope this inspires you to create something awesome using chipboard!  It really is versatile and can be used in a lot of different ways.

Thanks for stopping by today...have a nice afternoon :)
