Converting Raw Chipboard to Beautiful Gold Chipboard

Hi Leaky Shed Fans!  Christine hosting the blog today and sharing a layout with you where I decorated my raw chipboard.  As a clean and simple style artist, I often struggle with what to do with raw chipboard.  A lot of times I leave it alone or just paint it white.  But today I stepped out of my comfort zone a little bit while still staying true to my style.  For today's layout I covered my raw chipboard using Ranger Perfect Pearls.

This layout needed a perfect gold accent and the Fern Flourish was just what I was looking for!  I needed something with some curves and flow to it to break up all the straight lines.  

To cover it with Perfect Pearls, I simply worked slowly straight from the bottle.  Slowly letting liquid out and fill it in more as needed.  It dried beautifully and I love the shimmer it adds without being to feminine.

What's your favorite technique for covering raw chipboard?   Share it with us on our Facebook Wall!
