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!
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.
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 like this particular article it gives me an additional input on the information around the world. thanks a lot and keep giving with posting such information.

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.
