my first WOW blog post for the year!

I decided to share my favourite technique of just colouring the chipboard to K.I.S.S. the chippie…..LOL

My favourite thing to do is to just colour the chipboard in black with a permanent marker, but lately I  have been experimenting with a different colour. RED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

cousins WOW

For this layout I have used:

-Classic Lower Case Alphabet

-Linda Baldock Design mini leaf pack

-Picket fence


For this layout I have used:

-Family Time title piece

-Chloe Flourish

So when you are about to use some chipboard on your layout, try keeping it the main embellishment focus and K.I.S.S. your WOW chipboard!

Have fun chipping it up!
