There's so many things you can do with these! Paint them, cover with paper, etc. They work as water splashes for those pool and bathtime layouts, they could be stems for silk blooms, they make a nice frame for any photo, or you could turn them into virtually ANYTHING! Your imagination and creativity is the limit! They add dimension to your page, while giving it a nice finish. Plus you get 3 12x12 sheets!
I absolutely love these chipboard pieces. You can do anything with them. I prefer to paint them because of how easy it is. The come out very easy without ripping. Many different kinds of shapes in this package, which means you can use them for many different kinds of layouts. I just wish there was at least one more page for the amount of money you pay.
Fancy Pants is one of my absolute FAVORITE manufacturers and this amazing collection of swirls shows why. It's not just a collection of swirls only, but hearts, paisleys, and so on. The chipboard is thick and easy to work with. I have used paint on it, rub ons, patterned paper and cardstock. It holds adhesive well, and always turns out beautiful.
I was so glad to find these chipboard Soho Swirls at Scrapbook.com. Thanks for the help of a local scrapbook designer, I've created a two page layout using two of the large swirls. I colored the swirls with Colorbox pigment ink eye pads and was pleased how nicely the smooth texture of the chipboard took the ink.
I've found that I use these embellishments on almost every wedding layout I have done! These are great. I usually paint them, but there are many other ways to make these look fantastic! I love the size of the swirls--they just make the page "pop"! And they're very sturdy too--no tearing like diecuts!
