Spruce up your space with Scrapware...

Hi Everyone! Lisa Warren here and I'll be hosting the Scrapware blog this week.  Chipboard is not just for your scrapbook pages, and this week, the DT have created both functional and beautiful home decor pieces using Scrapware chipboard! The girls have outdone themselves. I think I might have to try these ideas myself. Enjoy!

First up, Natalie May..."This is a canvas I have created of Miss Jessica. I thought I'd give "Mixed Media" a whirl so I coated the canvas in gesso, added a layer of ripped book pages, added some texture paste, gave it a sprinkle of Micro Beads then painted it with Glimmermist and Making Memories paints! For the CH382 Natalie Frame Large, I painted it in gesso first, then gave it colour with a mixture of Glimmermist and paint then gave it a generous coat of Crackle Paint! The thin inside frame I covered with raw book pages. I think the final effect is great!"
Love the tonal effect on the flourish frame!
Here's a closeup...

Next up, Renee Iveson...Renee has created a gorgeous mirror using the new CH365 Blossom Frame (new product) and CH67 Blossom Stem.
Renee let us know..."This project shows off what I love about Scrapware! You can ink it, sew it, cover it, mist it, grunge it, fold it and use it for a mask all in one project and the result is always fabo!!"

You can see what she means in this closeups...just beautiful!

Next, Gina Rodgers...Gina has created a fun and fabulous blackboard!
"I've made this small blackboard for my daughter's room..and Jem's done a wonderful job helping me with the design (she's an owl lover like me) and choosing paint colours. For the board itself, I've used CH430 Nadine Hanging Large (new product)."
The cute owl is CH372 Joybells Owl and I've also used CH302 Skeleton Leaves small.  AZ08 Antique Lowecase Alphas have been used along with CH427 Mini Marilyn Blooms (new product, coming soon!).

Last, but certainly not least...Hetty Hall... who has created the most gorgeously girl and shabby chic shadow box and coordinating gift box...both of which are new products in the Scrapware collection.  KT62 - Mini Shadow Box Bracket and KT65 - 6x6" Box Kit, will both be released shortly!
The soft pinks and purples are just stunning...
Here's a peek inside...
Here they are together...perfect for any girls room.
Thanks girls!  Join us again when we showcase a couple of the DT's scrap spaces and some more ideas for dressing up your space with Scrapware chipboard.

Cheers, Lis.
