Media Board - Book Panel - Brenda

I have been having fun with chipboards for this project. I love layering up greyboard shapes but sometimes they end up protruding too high especially if you want to use some in a journal or on media boards. So for this project I have soaked some of my Andy greyboard shapes and pulled them apart and it's amazing how you can then play with distressing the layers of the greyboard and even get to put some back together again to create different shapes as I have done here.


I am using a piece of greyboard cut to the size I want as a page for the Andy book I am making.

I took my chosen greyboard shapes and soak the ones I wanted to split into thinner pieces and distress. These can be dried with a heat gun.


I split the industrial wings into 4 pieces and took the two thinnest ones for this project. When they were dry I glued them together to create a new shape with a hole in the centre and added the very distressed heart. I decided to use a retro palette for the rest of the colouring up.



There are more details and photos over at Bumblebees and Butterflies if you would like to see how this came together.


Thanks for stopping by.
