A technique and A Layout...

Im in my round 2 at Mystical Scrapbooks and the week challenge was for us to demo a favorite technique (with pics) and then make a layout using the technique. This was my first time to make such for a challenge. I made this night time and I had a hard time trying to get a picture of myself doing the technique (im the only one awake, henry was already sleeping - no one to help take the pics).
Sharing to you one of my fave techniques... Paint, Stamp, Emboss, Paint Chipboard.
Materials needed:
1. paint (blue, yellow & glod glaze)
3.clear ink
4.clear embossing powder
5. heat gun
Step 1. Paint chipboard with desired color...let it dry

Step 2. Get a stamp (i choose a script stamp) stamp image in the painted chipboard using clear ink then emboss using clear embossing powder

Step 3. paint with another desired paint (acorn color)
Step 4. brush with gold glaze to give dimesion...
* you can use diamond claze as the final coating to give it a glossy finish.
And this is the layout Ive made using the technique.
