Memory Maze's Blog Hop

Welcome to the Memory Maze's first ever blog hop!!

If you didn't come from Sharm Nidyanandan's blog or you popped upon this blog and didn't realize we were blog hopping you need to go to the Memory Maze blog and start the HOP! 

You will need to comment on ALL of the blogs to be eligible for the prize. Plus some of our awesome designers are giving away a prize on their blogs as well. 

 Here's what you could win from Memory Maze.

The Winner will be announced at the Memory Maze blog on the 26th May !

Our theme for this blog hop is Technique, each of our wonderful design team members will show you how to decorate those chipboard pieces or create new chipboard pieces.

My contribution is to show how  to make skin structure to chipboard - I'm going to do it on a dinosaur chipboard.

Start with covering your chipboard with gesso or other paint.
This will prevent your chipboard from sucking ink/paint and
will give crisper colors

Paint or ink your chipboard in desired colors. I have used both
acrylic paint and ink (Ranger Distressing ink)

When paint/ink is dry, cover areas you want a skin structure
on with crackle paint i(t's easier to see the crackles at this photo 
 angel, even if it means colors are not)

To make the crackles more visible, paint over crackle paint with
acrylic paint when crackle paint has dried. While acrylic paint is
still wet, wipe off access paint with a baby wiper. Cover other
parts of chipboard with a glossy varnish for a more even surface.

When completely dried, mount painted chipboard on project.
