Whitewash your chipboard!

Hellloooo :)

DeeDee here, today! Don't worry, soon enough we'll have some super fab new designers posting projects and bits all over the blog. I can't believe the talent that was interested in joining our team, and I can't wait to introduce you to each new member! Stay tuned :)

for NOW -- I want to share with you a recent project I did and a quick tutorial in video format on giving your UmWowStudio chipboard a quick ... "muting" ... as in making the gorgeous kraft color of our board a bit lighter and easier on the eyes. We are slowly but surely adding products and materials to our website that will and are great to use with our products, like the Golden Gesso.

let me start by showing you the project:

This tag can be found on my personal blog, as well as the Scrapki-wyzwaniowo challenge site, so graciously sponsored by 7 Dots Studio

And here is a closeup of the look we'll be achieving for our chipboard. 

You can get all the details in the following video, just grab your Nature Walk Floral Collection chipboard and some Golden Gesso



I also gave everything else on the tag a nice brush of gesso to help tie it all together. The Golden gesso is just perfect for that because it's so thin. Stay tuned for more tutorials, and other types of gesso, too!
