Heart - BITW

"Bird is the word" new challenge word is "HEART".
your can find their blog here 
I wanted to do a boy page for such a long time, 
something different from flowers and bling.
Sometimes I scrapped some pictures of my nephew 
this one is when he was three years old.
When I do scrap him I give these pages to my sister, 
she is not the least bit interested in scrapbooking. 
She has now a collection of pages which I have 
created of her beautiful boy.  
By the way, he loves them too and is very proud 
he is featured on a page which I then put on my blog. 
I think he loves his special Aunty. (ME)

The inspiring sketch is from "Funtoolas"
they have a challenge on their Ning site
check it out here Funtoolas

I (HEART) YOUBird is the Word - Challenge - HEART
Funtoolas Sketch for Feb 2012
Imaginarium Designs Chipboards
"Imaginarium Designs" chipboards used are
Railway track border  IDB0006
Clogs IDT0004
Large Alphas IDAU0001A
Flourish IDS0013
and
the negative of Clouds IDS0027

You might say what is the negative, well, 
once you have used the chipboards of the clouds
on a project, keep the outside area of the chipboard
and used it as a stencil with texture paste.
You achieve a great texured, 3D embellishment on your project 
and this is 
inspired by Louise Nelson, she has some great techiniques on using
 the negatives of chipboards on her projects.

Other material used:
Tim Holtz card stock, stamps, distressing inks, paint,
metal embellishments, martha stewart heart punch.
gloss accents.

Don't forget to visit "Imaginarium Designs" blog and enter
the competition to win some wonderful chippies.

Have a great weekend everyone.
thanks for looking.
Cheers Adriana XXX
