chipping away!

Whether it’s a tiny piece or something larger that you want to make into a feature, chipboard is an extremely versatile embellishment. It comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from ready-made titles to pieces you can use as backgrounds, and everything else that is trending at the moment in the scrapbooking world – including off-the-page items. Below are a few ways that I love to alter my chipboard, but firstly, unless I am keeping it raw, I always coat my chipboard in gesso first. This seals the chipboard and makes it less porous, which enhances the colour you’re adding, whether it’s by inking, painting or using Gelatos, mists or any other medium. Adding texture – This is my favourite thing to do to chipboard. After my coat of gesso has dried,…

homegrown scrapbooking

Eleven years ago, I compiled a list of names and dates of lighthouse keepers stationed at Norah Head from the last 100 years for the local Lighthouse Trust’s centenary celebrations. My father, grandfather, great grandfather and great uncles’ names filled a part of this list and as an homage to my family, I was passionate about presenting this list in a professional way, but had no idea where to start. I happened upon a local scrapbooking shop that had just opened and for this crafty type, it didn’t take long before the light bulbs rang in my head and I realised this was the perfect way to display my findings. That list evolved into two albums and a large off-the-page family tribute piece. My passion for scrapbooking was born, from…

enhancing with copics

Have you ever had something about a scrapbook page that just wasn’t working? As we know through the media, airbrushing can make soft corrections to achieve the look we want. In this article I’m going to talk about using airbrushing to make those little corrections when something goes wrong, needs to be added or to enhance elements to tie them in a little better. With most mixed-media scrapbooking, you can simply build layers to mask the things that go wrong, but sometimes it isn’t until everything is stuck down that you realise there’s an issue. This is what happened with my layout ‘A sunset walk’. I loved the design, but felt the background was taking too much focus away from the photo and beautiful die-cuts which were the features of the…
