My Latest UPA Column: Chipboard Dollie

For the month of August at the Unruly PaperArts blogozine, our theme is Chip off the Old Block: creative contributors will present a wide variety of techniques to use on chipboard and specialty cardboard, such as corrugated, matt board, etc.

There are so many things to do with chipboard.  One of them is to cover them with paper!  As a papercrafter, this is the direction I took for my current UPA column which you can find HERE.

I purchased from Red Lead Paperworks the chipboard doll collection and began creating my project.

If you are visiting from UPA, here is the supply list:

Other Materials:

Large chipboard dress and precut dotted turquoise paper dress glued together with USArtQuest Perfect Paper Adhesive Matte.  Edged with Versa Magic Chalk Ink.

Pinafore--gesso followed by Ranger Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Stain
