I love Maya Road Chipboard. There are so many great shapes & sizes to complement any creation. Sometimes i like to just play around with these pieces to see what i can create. Think of it as creative play to add to your technique repertoire. Today i am going to walk you through some of my creative play using these chipboard butterflies & mists.
Start with some chipboard pieces. Today i am playing with these beautiful butterflies. Each piece comes with a top & bottom or two chances to play.
You can always spray mists directly onto the chipboard pieces. It looks really cool. Sometimes i like to paint them white first to boldly show the mist color and to get a variance in the mist. Try it out.
I like using a paint brush to paint the mists on.
Try adding in a second or third mist onto the piece, layering on top on the first mist.
If you don't like the color, play around some more until you find a color combination you like. I covered over the Sunflower & Plum Metallic mist with a touch of Fig Magenta. Love the color combination. The top of the butterfly is painted with buttermilk cream.
Paint a second chipboard piece. Time to play with the diluted mist. This Maya Road video shows you how to dilute the mists. Spray it directly on the chipboard piece and let the color pool in puddles. You get this cool variance of mist colors. Want a deeper color, add a few more sprays.
Just take some time to play around with your chipboard pieces & mists to see what you can create.
