I used my Scrapmatts - at last!!

I won some scrapmatts last March.  (They are laser cut chip board shapes – really delicate and detailed…)  I opened them, ooohed over them, decided I didm’t know how to use them and put them in my cupboard.
Finally, a year on, I’ve been brave and actually used them!
I have really used them too… As a mask, a stencil and as an embellishment!

First of all I mixed up some mica sprays and made a background by spraying over the chippies.  This didn’t work as well as I’d hoped and is really difficult to photograph.

Never mind, onwards…

I then used one of them as a stencil.  I drew around it in pencil first and then went over in pens that matched the mica sprays.

Finally I ‘mica-ed’ up the chippies and layered them on too.

Gutted my backing paper... cos I'm stingy!!

Double matted my photo.

It needs something more…


Finished with seed bead centres.

And here is the finished layout...

So to sum up; scrapmatts chippies are not scary and you should probably play with some too! J


  1. Gorgeous page Laura, love how you made it

  2. Wow! I popped over from WOYWW to see what you've done with the chippie things that you said needed to be used up. I love this. I love ALL THOSE FLOWERS. I would think a ton of flowers would be too much but you've shown that it isn't. So excellent! And isn't it great to use something finally! I know I always feel a sense of satisfaction when I do that.
