Lay the chipboard, glue side down on the back of your pattern paper and allow to dry. Once dry carefully tear away the paper leaving some areas of the raw chipboard exposed.
Sand the edge of your chipboard.
Ink the edge of your chipboard to give a shabby finished feel then go ahead and complete your layout.
