This is my answer to using paint on a card or project that Terra issued on Tuesday!!!
I posted in an earlier blog that I was starting a chipboard journal of sorts to have samples of my art, and I thought this would be a great page for that journal. The butterfly is a image I received for being a part of the Scrapbooking and Crafting Design Team and it is from MyGrafco. I thought something a little different was in store for this cute little flyer!!! I used prismacolor pencils on the butterfly and accented him with blue metallic paint. For the chipboard page, I painted it with several layers and several varying colors of gray, ranging from white to black. I drew the spooky tree on after it was dried and then painted it with metallic black. Something I found out while doing this project is that if you use enough layers of paint, when you bend the chipboard it will crack giving it a weathered look without having to use a crackle medium! I love that look.

So let me know what you think of today's project, and remember to hop on over to see what Terra created today!

Great little spooky scene. Good to know about cracking, as I like the look occasionally, but not enough to buy the paint.
