New Series: Make Your Own Embellishments with ColourArte - Chipboard Tiles

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my new series of video tutorials for making your own embellishments. I will be showing you how to make your own embellishments for any and all of your artwork, whether it's a simple card, a scrapbooking page, an art journal, or even a mixed media canvas.  I will try to use different techniques, and I will always interject with any tips that come to mind during the process.

Today, I'm working with ColourArte products and simple corrugated card board from a shipping box.  I will be working mostly with ColourArte's Vivid UItra Metallics, and a couple of the Primary Elements powdered pigments.  I hope you are able to come away with some inspiration and cool ideas of your own.
