From little things big things grow by Bellaidea

by admin


It`s  Bellaidea, with my new LO .

My new DT parcel this month was full of farm oriented chipboards: fences, horses, cute frames etc. I started making two layouts at the same time since I could not decide what to do first:).


I used 3 chipboard pieces.

The first was a wordlet “from little THINGS BIG things GROW”,



The second one was a very cute tree, its 10.5 x11 cm big but you can also find another one, much bigger  at Scrap FX!




The last one I was working with was a chain frame;




For all 3 chipboards I used the same technique. Very simple and easy:).

First I painted all chipboards with white acrylic paint.

Then  painted them with dark brown, brown and blue acrylic paint. This is a great solution if you need your chipboards in different colors and don’t own a heap of colors of embossing or ink. You can use any kind of acrylic paint, even borrow some from your children:).

At the end I just use transparent embossing powder.

If you have any questions or suggestion please let me know.

Have a nice day and see you soon, next time I will have another “farm” LO.

  1. You have just the cutest layouts, Bella- I love your use of color and distressing and all the fun ways you alter the chippies- nicely done!!

  2. I love the country colors here. Reminds of that old china with patterns on it in a color similar to the shade of blue you’ve used here! This is such a fantastic LO – really like how you combined the paints for unique color and topped them off with clear embossing powder!
