Hi everyone! Melissa here with a layout for Gina's Designs.
I think these chipboard pieces fit beautifully with the vintage theme of the page.
To decorate the chipboard, I first prepped all the pieces with gesso. On the leaf pieces I put green and brown watercolors over green chalk ink. I then topped them off with Distress Crackle Paint.
For the pink pieces, I put crackle paint over pink chalk ink. I rubbed in some brown chalk to define the cracks. The pink didn't show up much as much as I would have liked it to against the background, so I used pink Twinkling H20s to make the pieces darker. After that, I applied yellow, then purple H20s, letting each layer dry. I ended with another layer of crackle paint.
Thanks for looking!

I used a Prima stencil and applied texture paste. I put a mix of green and blue watercolors on. While it was wet I put on some pearlex powder in gold. I put distress crackle paint on top.
