Choose Chipboard...then embellish it!

Chipboard has been around for years. I remember using it more than 15 years ago, to add dimension and texture to your pages. It's gone in and out of fashion and let me tell you....It's BACK.  

There is now a variety of products labelled as Chipboard, but spans a range of materials from actual chipboard material to balsa and other light woods. These are often laser cut precisely and with a beautiful sharp finish.  It's now available with incredible detail and with very fine intricate designs.

Altering Chipboard has also reached new heights.  There are so many amazing mixed media products on the market now, that there is just no end to what you can do to customise your chipboard.  You can leave it raw of course.....but where's the fun in that?
