“Mandala magic!!" Layout By Chrissy Tingey


Hi everyone, I have had these gorgeous papers in my stash for years, 
I love them so much with the mandala type designs -  
I now had the perfect Chipboards to use with them. 
My first job was to fussy cut all the beautiful images from the papers
once that was done I began to layer them up, in readiness for assembling on my layout. 

Chipboard used: 
Aztec Flower Set 1.
2c 4 inch Mandala 3.
2c 4 inch Mandala 1.
Fifi Flourish. 

I wanted all the chipboard to colour coordinate with the papers, 
so I picked out the gorgeous teal colour.
 I didn’t have the exact match of medium so I just mixed a few colours of paint and mists together
 until I was happy. 
A couple of coats and they were done. I love that these chipboards take anything 
you put on them. Even those very delicate Aztec flowers took the paint mix perfectly. 
I started to make clusters of the fussy cut and layered paper elements around my layout
then tucked a piece of chipboard in with them. 

The Aztec flower chipboards are stunning! - I carefully lifted & shaped the inner section to give
some height and dimension. 

I just love the added texture the chipboards give to a layout or project - 
the chipboard mandala’s are so beautiful, they would also look fabulous layered up
like the fussy cut paper elements. 
Mmmm I feel another project coming on using them this way.

Don’t forget, if you want to colour coordinate your
chipboard but don’t have the right colour, just mix a few colours of mediums up - 
I used acrylic paint and mists, it
worked perfectly. 

Thanks for stopping by, you can find lots more close-ups of this layout over on my Instagram page
