Since we are featuring chalk inks this month, i wanted to show you how awesome these chalk inks are. I had a 12x12 corrugated sheet of cardboard. I cut some strips from it, painted it white with gesso and set aside to dry. Once they were dry, i grabbed Mango Mai Tai, Maja Blue, and Tahiti and went over the painted corrugated to achieve the look i wanted.
I also used the Bag o Chips Flowers on this layout. I painted them all with white gesso first, i wanted them to grab the true colours from the inks to match the colours in the Tin Type Papers. One of the flowers has the petals cut a little deeper so I folded the edges in to make the flower look more realistic.
By chalking the edges first then pulling the colour into the center with a blending tool, i was able to achieve the look above. The brads were pewter, and i also dipped them in the chalk ink to colour them.
I used letters from the timber alphabet from Pink Paislee and covered them in mocha mama chalk ink, I love how the letters turned out, it really pulls the page together.
I used two office tags in the layout, one which i covered in mango mai tai, and the other in Baja Blue. Once dry, i stamped over the tags using a script stamp and mocha mama chalk ink. I hope this layout inspires you to pull out your chipboard, gesso and those chalk inks, im sure you will love them as much as I do :)
