Default ANOTHER question about chipboard...:)

I just bought some large chipboard letters to decorate for my DD room (they spell her name)...my problem is I don't know what to do with them...lol.

Can I paint them or do I have to put patterned paper over them? Can I do both and then embellish them? Her name is Julia, so some of the letters would be difficult to cover with paper....

Just unsure as to what to do...help!

You can do both! They're such versatile things...I love them! Show pictures when you're done!

Sara, covering with paper is much easier than it looks. You can either trace the letters out on the back of the paper and cut it out that way. Or you can attach the paper and just use a exacto knife to trim. Then go around the edges with a sanding block.

Otherwise craft inks and paint work wonderfully.

I was watching a demo at Scrapfest this weekend and the girl took the chipboard letter stamped a stamp on the outer edges in maybe two or three places in one darker color of blue and then smooshed the stamp (stamped then turned the stamp in a turning movement) then took lighter blue color and using a stylus tool rubbing in the lighter color all over the letter then accenting with a darker blue using the stylus tool again. I hope I didn't confuse you but this was a very nice technigue. Very easy also. By the way she use pigment chauk ink. I'm sure you could use any ink.

But there is a thickness to the letters and if I trace them, that wouldn't cover the sides, would it??
