Making the most out of your chipboard pieces

Hi everyone!

Julie with you here today and I wanted to share a canvas I made with the February kit "How's the Weather?" 




In this month's kit, there are two cloud chipboard pieces ... and I am a girl that LOVES CLOUDS! Loves them! 

So I thought I would share my little secret on how to multiply your clouds from the kit!! :)

 

I took my two chipboard clouds and then a piece of the 6x6 Crate Paper On Trend paper from the kit and traced the chipboard clouds onto the paper ...

And now I have four more clouds to play with :)



And here is how I put together the rest of my canvas :)

I started off with my canvas, a piece of Kraft paper from the kit and two pieces of 6x6 Crate Paper On Trend paper from the kit --



 I carefully tore the edges of the Kraft paper --


And then I inked the edges --


Then I tore the edges of the 6x6 papers and inked those also -- 


And now, here is my canvas all put together -- including my 'extra' clouds I made by tracing my chipboard pieces onto paper :)

 




 Thanks for stopping by!
