I really wanted to stay with soft, warm colors that come from similar pallets. I decided to paint my chipboard with a base of brown paint. I went over it in Picket Fence Distress Paint. Then, I went over it in Vintage Photo Distress ink. I let that dry for a few minutes then lightly misted it with water and again, let it sit a minute before I wiped it off. This gave the ink time to sink in to the cracks. I decided to dry bush the edges with some white paint.
I used a garden gate mask from Tattered Angels and misted it into place. Camilla Ekman made the first page for our team and she used this. I really loved the way it looked so I kept it on my lift.
