Creating Your Own Chipboard

Creating your own chipboard is very easy.  My chipboard is gold, but you can paint yours any colour.  See how easy it is.

Gesso a cereal box.  If you gesso the shiny side, sand off the shine.  Otherwise, gesso the backside.

Paint over your gesso.  I used gold.  Dry completely before embossing.

Cut chipboard with Nestabilities.

WOOT WOOT this card is soooooooooo gorgeous Beth, I just sooo LOVE it, and what a wonderful idea. But I have never heard of this Gesso before, what is it exactly? Hope, you´ll explain a bit more about that? Sorry if I sound stupid, but never thingk, I´ve even seen anything like it or heard it before. Is there anything else, that´ll do the same maybe? Is it some kind of paint, and does it come in all colors? It just looks sooooooo awesome, so it´s definately something, I would soo love to try, if I can just find this stuff anywhere here? Or at least something like it.
Have a great day dear friend and sorry for all my questions again again LOL.
Big hugs Maryann

Gesso is a medium/sealer, sort of like Mod Podge.

Thank you sooo much for the answer. I´vve never heard of any of them here, where I live, but I´m pretty sure, we´ll have something else then. I´ll just have to ask for it, next time I go to a craftstore somewhere around here, but at elast I know, what I´m looking for. Thanks sooo much again dear friend.
Have a nice day.
Big hugs Maryann
