Introduction: Color Wheel

I made a color wheel using a chip board photo reel from Gina's Designs Laser Cuts

Step 1: Gesso the Chip Board

  1. Paint all of the chip board with your favorite gesso
  2. Let dry or use heat gun.

Step 2: Add Texture

  1. I added texture paste with a stencil.
  2. Let this dry completely before going to next step.

Step 3: Time to Add the Color!

  1. You can use sprays like I did or use water colors, inks, watered down acrylic paint.
  2. I sprayed each section with water before adding the color, this will help the colors mix together.
  3. Careful not to over mix.

Step 4: Color Wheel Taking Shape

  1. This is what it looked like after two layers of color.
  2. I was happy with how it looked so I stopped there.

Step 5: Time to Add the Stuff!

  1. I went through my stash of flowers and buttons to pick a rainbow of colors!

Step 6: Add a Base to the Wheel

  1. Glue the wheel to a piece of white chip board (sorry I forgot to take a photo)
  2. You could also use a very heavy water color paper.
  3. You can cut the wheel out or wait till done and then cut out.

Step 7: Start Layering the Colors

  1. Line up the flowers to match the colors on the wheel.
  2. Once I was happy with how it looked, I started gluing everything in place. I used Beacons 3 in one glue. A glue gun would work as well.

Step 8: Add More Paint

  1. After gluing the flowers (and other goodies) in place, I decided that the white squares were too stark.
  2. Very sloppy add the matching color of that section to the squares, I wanted it to look like a paint palette.

Step 9: Finish It Off

  1. I decided to add some chipboard flourishes .
  2. I painted them gold and added some gold micro beads.
  3. Once dry, I cut the flourishes into pieces and glued into place.

Step 10: All Done!

  1. I love how it turned out! Its going to look awesome in my craft room :) Hope you give this a try, Happy Crafting!
