the 4 product challenge......

So what's the 4 product challenge i hear you say..
well over at the bestest chipboard company around.. ScrapMatts.. Sofie and Andrew decided to set their DT a challenge... create a layout using 4 DIFFERENT types of their chipboard products.. yep 4 different.. easy you say.. well YEAH and NO coz you could only use 4.. and there were other rules.. couldnt add any other embellishments appart from the chippies..so no buttons, flowers..etc...
so want to see what i came up with..............
"DUDE"
Dude
yes i know.. i went to extreme.... i ONLY used Chipboard.. no pattern papers or anything... love the way it looked....... first up i created the background on plain Chipboard sheet using a crafters workshop template with some texture paste and misted with glimmermist and chalk mist when the texture paste was still wet.. i SO love the way this looks..... lets the photo and the chippy shine..........
so i have used....cb 5039 Gears, cb 8003 Clock and Cb 8001 Circles to make the frame......so how did i do it.. well the clock is just coloured black with Sharpie pen and the numbers i rubbed on some Liquid Pearls,, yep liquid pearls.. and then the circle i swiped some white paint on and then sprayed with two colours of glimmermist.... and the gears were already black so i just randomly highlighted some areas with the stardust pens {from scrapmatts} and covered with the scrapmatts glaze....so there you go .. pretty easy..and LOVE the look of it..
and then for the title.. simply rubbed on some white paint and then when was dried randomly swiped over it with distress stain....
so there you have it ... my take on the 4 product challenge... so why not head on over to the Scrapmatts forum {HERE} and have a look at how may ways you can use chippies.....

oh and for those who dont follow me on facebook.. i just came back from the most awesome long weekend away at Gillian Lesters house.. yep the famous Gillian Lester... where we spent a weekend of scrappiness..and get this i completed 15.. yep 15 Layouts.{including this one}. how cool is that... i KNOW.. so i'm off to photograph them and will share in time... happy days everyone....
