"Oh What Fun" Christmas Inspiration
By Karan Gerber

Hello friends.
Welcome to my first post for 2 Crafty Chipboard.  For my first project
 I thought I would do an "off the page" wall hanging titled "Oh What Fun".

The base of it is on a 8"x8" corrugated cardboard backed on thick chipboard
 so it can be set on a plate stand. Perfect for holiday decor.


All of the chipboard pieces were gessoed prior to adding my color. 


After the gesso was dry, I added a coat of Cosmic Shimmer
 to the sentiment and the Mandala.


I cut the Mandala in half and placed a piece on either side of my paper layers.
 I also added some gold antique wax on random areas to highlight the piece.  
Some frosting powder was added to blend in with the details on the project.

The lattice leaves and Leafy shrub were prepped the same way, 



I used two of the leaves from the Leafy shrub piece and I cut them apart
 so I can add them under my flower layers throughout my project. 


I hope you have enjoyed my first project with 2crafty Chipboard today,
& I look forward to inspiring you this coming year.
