Don't like the design on your Chipboard...Change it!!

Happy M.O.M. Day.

So recently I showed you foil embossing on left over chipboard piece. Today I will show you how to change the paper on the left over chipboard.

Using more of the left over pieces from Graphic 45 Baby 2 Bride Collection I and going to change it to something that will work better on an album I am working on. I will be using paper from Graphic 45 Artisan Style. I just love the peacock feather paper.
First with an emory board, file off the little nibs that are left on the chip board when removing them from the main package.
Next I cut a piece of paper about the size of the chipboard I am covering.

Be sure to fully cover your chipboard with glue. I used Zig 2 Way Glue with the wide applicator.

Adhere your paper to the chipboard piece. Be sure the section you want seen is on the chipboard, where you want it.
Cut the paper as close to the chipboard as you can get.

Lightly spray your paper with a mixture of alcohol and water. Don't saturate it, otherwise your paper will just fall apart.
Using an emory board, gentle file away the excess paper.

Allow it to dry thoroughly, then chalk the edged  ( I used Color Box Chalk, Ocean) and add additional embellishments, if you wish. I would not suggest doing anything too elaborate until you have a good feel for this technique.

And now you have a new piece of chipboard  to use.

Here are some other samples I did.

I was debating on adding  one to the embossed foil sample I did last week.

Or change the look of another one. Which is I glued the chipboard a little too high on the paper.
I like both, so I guess I'll have to find another piece of left over chipboard and make another one like the small architectural piece. 

That's it for today. Happy Scrapping !!
