Fun with Chipboard Frames

Happy Wednesday!!
I was inspired by the brushed finish on the butterfly bench that my niece is sitting on in my photo. I wanted to use something "brushed" looking on my page, but had nothing in my stash that suited me.

I immediately turned to my Shimmerz Paints, colored chipboard frames, and a piece of sand paper. First I distressed the chipboard frames with the sand paper, then I lightly painted the frames using a foam brush. I painted them in a "dusting" fashion until I got the brushed finish look I was going for.

The outcome is so cool ... I'm super excited how they turned out!! Check 'em out...


Shimmerz Paints used: Pearlz Emerald Isle and Blingz Spiced Cider
