So I sat and contemplated my navel for a while. Nah just joking LOL! What I did do though was to sit and look around my scrap room, considering what I had in my stash that I could use. Time and time again my eyes were drawn back to my alcohol inks. But chipboard is porous ..

Like a lightning bolt from above it hit me! (LOL!) I figured if I covered my chipboard pieces in glossy accents they'd no longer be porous. It was a revelation! Well for me anyways. Because I wanted the true colours of my alcohol inks to shine through I used my trusty friend Keith (now that's another story!) to spray the chipboard with white gesso. I used alcohol inks to colour all my pieces. Some I then added glossy accents to, to bring out the colours. Others I used clear stickles on before using glossy accents to seal in the shimmer.
I loved this technique and if I can remember, plan on using it again in the future. I'd love to know what you do with your chipboard ..
