Tutorial, and Lilac Fog...only look if you love the color of lilac, lavender, and purple.

As promised earlier, here's the finished layout featuring those wonderfully detailed lantern and key chipboard pieces designed by Blue Fern Studios. 
 I'm fond of Barbara Bixby jewelry and while at a shop admiring some of her very expensive and exquisite pieces, it crossed my mind that I might be able to make chipboard look like a piece of her jewelry, and at a fraction of the cost. Wishful thinking, right?  But, I wasn't going to let a little doubt stop me from trying.
The Lilac Fog in the background was created using Blue Fern Studios Quatrefoil Panel as a stencil, some light molding paste, mists, stamp, and a watercolor pencil.  A very easy process with dramatic results in any color of your choice.  

Here's how you can make your chipboard look like a pieces of jewelry:

Here's a picture of some of Barbara Bixby's work.
