Imaginarium Designs Chipboard - Guest Designer

Hello everyone,

I am excited to share another with project for this month, as Guest Designer for Imaginarium Designs, today I have created a tag and decorated a cover of an old recycled book, using some of the 
fabulous chipboards from "Imaginarium Designs"…. 

Using the following chipboards
IDDD001 Denise Art Deco shapes
IDFR0005 Oval Frame

I painted all the chipboards with white gesso first, then added white embossing powder and embossing ink pad. A sprinkle of gold mica here and there on the base of the tag.

For my last project this month, I used some of the Imaginarium Designs chipboards to decorate a recycled old book cover.

"LOVE" art journal by Adriana Bolzon

Using the following chipboards
IDDL0007 Criss Cross Frame 1
IDFR0005 Oval Frame
Flowers & Birds IDS0026

I painted all the chipboard firstly with white gesso, then added some prills, once  they were all dry, I sprayed some mists of glorious colour. Dabbing gently, other metallic paints here and there.

with the two frames chipboards I used gold embossing and dabbed a a bit of metallic green.

here are all the Imaginarium Designs chipboards that I used for my projects today.

Until next time, Thanks for looking :) 

Thanks for having me here, as Guest Designer this month

BEST - More than Words Mini Challenge

Hi everyone, today I entered the quick challenge at MORE THAN WORDS CHALLENGE
they have a monthly challenge - in which you can create a layout or art journal page, but they also have a Mini Challenge  in the month, you can create a card or tag with the challenge word,
In which this month is "BEST"
Unfortunately I can't win any prizes as one of the sponsors is Couture Creations.
but I wanted to create
a card and I used the following new release stencils from Couture Creations which are available now from your local scrapbooking store.

Here is my card

"BEST WISHES" using the word BEST for the Mini Challenge

One new product from Couture Creations is the "Be Merry Stencils",
These stencils are so versatile, that some of them can be used now for Christmas themed projects , cards and layouts but for also versatile for other themes as well.

I have created the background of my card with one of these small stencils
from the 
Christmas Threads Stencil C0724926

teamed up with the New Mixed Media products also available from Couture Creations -
Anna Griffin Texture paste C0724867  &  
Anna Griffin Mix Match Pigments C0724866

The size of the stencil is so perfect for cards, they are 4 x 6 inches approx.

Using the new Anna Griffin Texture paste C0724867 

I smooth it gently on a piece of thick card stock with a plastic spatula.

I love the raised details and textures that it leaves, once you lift off the stencil.

Leave it dry or dry with a heat gun.

I gently scooped out a small amount of the Anna Griffin Mix Match Pigments C0724866 onto a mixing plate and added a small amount of water , mixing it together and with a brush
gently dabbed the colour around the card.

I used the Blue, Yellow Gold, and Green pigments - I love the pearl and shimmer that they create.

I then trimmed the card stock to fit on a C6 card stock
I added the Word title from Imaginarium Designs chipboard word 

I also added a Magnolia Paper flower and
Be Merry Collection, Gold Bouquets flowers C0724918

Sea Breeze Beach Hut - Couture Creations

Hello there everyone, today and I am sharing another project created with Couture Creations paper and products especially with the new release papers
SEA BREEZE designed by Denise Boddey. I really think this paper collection is so perfect for all types of projects.

 Today I have created a display piece - or beyond the page project.
I created a fun beach hut with the lovely embellishments from the
SEA BREEZE  collection.

Using the SEA BREEZE papers and Ephemera pack for decorating my beach hut. Adding many shells, coloured muslim and some white netting.

SEA BREEZE Diecut Ephemera pack C0724681
SEA BREEZE Paper pad C0724651
White Netting C0724733

To create this little Sea Breeze Beach Hut I used a small square wooden Box available from Artdeco Creations, some wooden popsticks, hot glue gun, white gesso, inks and paints.

Using the back of the box for the front of the beach hut, I glued rows of popsticks with the hot glue gun and then made a roof with the popsticks and attached it to the top of the box.

Once all the popsticks are glued onto the box, I then painted white gesso all over the popsticks and then added blue & rustic paints and inks.
Layering on the roof with colour muslim,shells, pearls and touch of glitter glue and also some white netting.

I created a banner with the Sea Breeze Papers and added a ephemera tag to the front of beach hut.

Here is another one I created for CHA - using the 
SEA BREEZE  Die cut Lighthouse & Banner C0724686 & some coloured
cardstock for decoration.
