Beaded Strawberry tutorial

Beaded chipboard tutorial

I love bare chipboards: they make you to be creative and to find more and more unique ways to embellish them.. So this Strawberry mini album piece from Maya Road was a perfect piece to use my own (I did it about 3 years ago for the first time and I 've never seen this kind of work before ) technique of " Paint and Bead" chipboard embellishment.

So here we go

Supply list: Maya Road chipboard strawberry; Red and Green Acrylic paint- I used some Ranger and some Plaid, you can use whatever you have; Red, green and black seed beads- you can make a mix of the same red and green colors as I did; 3d Glaze- I used Ranger Glossy Accents, but as you need a lot of this medium you can pick a cheap brand in any craft shop.

Step 1: Underline the leaves over your strawberry shape

Step 2: Fill the shape with a lot of acrylic paint- the more the better as shown. You don't have time to clean your brush- so use two cheap kids brushes and try to clean them later

Step 3: Fill the wet paint with your beads- do it totally randomly and use some color mix, don't touch them, just add more to cover almost all the paint. As a last touch add some bigger black beads, not too much of them over the red ones.

Step 4: Cover the entire piece with a think layer of your 3D glaze. Leave it to dry- it takes ages, but the result is gorgeous. Now you can clean your paint brushes… LOL

Step 5: Your chipboard piece is ready to be used over your card or another art piece
I decided to show you the same piece added to my "So berry sweet" card and to my Strawberry Girl Forever lo… I am not sure where I am going to use it- I think I need another one done and thank to Maya Road this is a mini album, so I have more strawberries for my future use
