How groovy and gorgeous are the new chipboard female forms?? They certainly pack a punch of instant femininity to any project!! I have used the beautiful CB Linda in my layout below, and have added embellishments to her to really give her a sophisticated and elegant look. CB Linda is the perfect embellishment for this layout alongside some photos of friend's daughter on the day of her formal.
One of my favourite techniques, using Buzz and Bloom chipboard, is to cover the chipboard shape with various materials. On CB Linda you will see I have added several different materials to create the look of clothing. Firstly, I added some beautiful corded ribbon to the bodice section of the CB Linda shape securing it into position with double sided tape.
Next, I added my most favourite technique .... "micro-beads". The micro beads were adhered to the chipboard shape using dimensional magic. The dimensional magic (glossy accents) was directly applied to the chipboard and the micro beads spread over the top. When all micro beads were placed into position, I added another coat of dimensional magic over the top, which, when dry leaves a gorgeous glossy finish.
Finally, I added the finishing touches ... using some bling, I created a necklace and a fashionable belt too. Oh, and not forgetting some flowers in her hair to complete the look! Doesn't CB Linda now look fit to take on the town in her elegant evening dress?
I have also used a chipboard shape from the CB Fancy Pansy set and created the title using CB Vette Alphabet Lower Case. These chipboard pieces have been coloured using an adirondak paint dabber and finished off with some dimensional magic for that irresistable glossy finish.
Wow, what an amazing impact CB Linda has made to this layout ... go out and grab yourself some of these gorgeous new chipboard shapes now, the creative possibilities are endless .... have fun creating!!
