Hello CE friends! Welcome back to the blog! It’s so good to see you again, thank you for your time. This time I’m going a bit more complex. Let’s use some amazing chipboard cut-outs, decoupage, splatter, make some shakers, fussy cut images, and layer some flowers in there too. Right?! We’re going to be using all kinds of techniques today, all inspired by CE chippys!!

Product List

Flourish Set 27

Counting Cards 2


**Let’s blossom together, shall we?!**


1. Choose your desired papers, I am using my own papers I designed

*Hint: Cherry Blossom Wonderland available in my online store

2. Next decoupage your paper to the canvas

3. Next, fussy cut your chosen images. I used my Cherry Blossom stacked cups with the Rabbit for this one

4. Water down some gold paint and splatter the canvas surface

5. Alter your chipboard pieces using the same gold acrylic paint

6. Start assembling your shakers and apply your chipboard flourishes to the canvas

7. Now layer your stacked shaker cups

*Hint: I layered the single shaker cup on top of the two stacked cups

I think this adds a lot of extra interest and dimension allowing you to layer away

8. Once those are applied, add your fussy-cut images and flowers

9. As a finishing touch, distress the edges with black gesso

*Hint: I think this technique really finishes the piece providing it a nice frame

10. Finally, add some card heart pieces to the tops of the flowers randomly

*Hint: I painted these with white gesso and added my own sparkle mix on top adding some extra glitz
