just wondering what paint is best for chipboard? I was using memory keepers but i can't find it anymore. Also I would appreciate some constructive criticism on my lay outs. I don't know anyone else that scraps so getting feedback would be great!

As far as paints, any acrylic paint will work on chipboard. Making Memories paint tends to be a bit thicker, but a lot of people use the cheaper Apple Barrel, Plaid, etc.

I agree about the paints. I haven't been scrappin' long but I looked at your gallery and left a couple of comments. I like your work a lot.

I think any acrylic paints are OK, but BY FAR by favorites are the dabbers. They are super easy to use, have great coverage and no mess or cleanup.

The dabbers come in many colors and can be found here at the Superstore or in your local craft store.

For suggestions, I would go through the main gallery here and find a few pages you really like. Then click on the name of the artists of those pages and look at their whole gallery. That would give you some design ideas.

An artist I like who has a great clean and simple style is Cindy312. Here gallery is here: http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/82838.html

She has a great way with using multiple pics on a page, building cohesion among all the elements, and scrapping to scale so that embellies don't overshadow photos.

I adore painting on chipboard! I use regular acrylic (translation, whatever is on sale @ M's...) I like painting a layer first, letting dry, and then painting another layer. 2 layers is usually enough. but then I decide to change the color and so on and so forth. lol

I have used the Kaisercraft range and it worked well.

I never painted on chipboard. Looks like I found something new to mess around with.

I'm a fan of Making Memories acrylic paints. They work well for everything I use paint on. Some of my other favorites are Crackle Paints and Pebbles Inc. paints.

On the layout below I used Making Memories Paints.

I'm with IzzyB! The Ranger Paint Dabbers are awesome.
They are similar to Bingo dabbers, but way better. You don't have to use a paintbrush and there is no cleanup.
You can also blend other colors with them. I didn't know this until I saw Tim Holtz do it the other day on HSN.
They are also great for stamping. You just dab the paint right onto your stamp and stamp away! They clean right up with soap or just water!

I agree that the paint dabbers are a mess-free way to paint, but if you want coverage I would stay away from their white dabber. I had to use 3+ thick coats of it to turn the kraft colored chipboard white! I don't know how well other white paint covers, but I was disappointed with it.
