Contemporary Creating plus a Burst of Colour!

Hi my creative chippie friends!

Welcome to a new month of fun and inspirational creations here at Imaginarium Designs.
Amanda here today, & I have two very different projects to share with you.

My first creation is this clean, simple, & contemporary layout,

"Love You Darling Daughter"

Isn't she just divine?!! So very loved,
& hence that fantastic chipboard title!
Imaginarium Designs have such an enormous (& fabulous) collection of words and phrases that are just perfect for all your layouts and crafting needs.
My biggest problem is often deciding which one to use!
 I do especially love the Darling Daughter chipboard - one of my all time faves!
Doesn't the red just 'pop' with the black/white & kraft paper?

Let's take a closer look.......

Loving those chippie hearts!
 The hearts really accent the title phrase and partner perfectly with the patterned paper.

How good does that chipboard look?! 
Because of the simplicity of the design, the chipboard didn't need to much enhancing - 
just a striking red ink applied!
The monochromatic colours really make the simplistic design look so effective -
that awesome chipboard brings the whole page together!

Love You

Darling Daughter

Lou's Heart Shapes

Love that stylish, simplistic & contemporary layout but,
it's time for something completely different..............

My second creation is just bursting with colour, paint & fun!

An inspirational canvas art,

"Spread Your Wings And Fly"

A lil bit of mixed media madness going on here -
 but great to get painty with the chippies!

Aren't those intricate butterflies just the prettiest?! 
Oh so delicate and beautifully cut.
They have been painted with Chromacryl acrylics in varying shades of cool blue.
Just gorgeous! 
Let's take a closer look.....

The ornate oval frame has been lightly coated in metallic gold paint, 
then treated with Glossy Accents.
Looks lovely, but the stars of the show are definitely those butterflies!

Whether you're a mixed media fan or not,
 there's no denying that those butterflies are just the prettiest chippies you've ever seen!

February Projects by Romy

Today it's my (Romy's) turn to show you a couple of projects for February. 
I would like to show you a masculine lay-out about my dad and an early Christmas card, both displaying some of my favourite chipboard pieces from Imaginarium Designs. I hope I can inspire you in this way to also use some of your beautiful Imaginarium chipboard.

First off, I have a vintage lay-out to show you. On this lay-out I scrapped a sepia-toned photo of my father and I tried to use many masculine touches to my lay-out to make it suit the photo. Imaginarium Designs has some chipboard pieces that were perfect for adding just the masculine twist that I was looking for.

I embellished my lay-out with several of these wonderful chipboard gears. I made them brown by slightly inking them with distress ink. 

I also framed my photo with this beautiful frame. 

I further embellished my lay-out with some of these wonderful chevrons. 

My second project features a gorgeous frame from Imaginarium Designs. I was in the mood for an early Christmas card and this rectangular frame was just perfect for that. 

I heat embossed the frame with gold embossing powder for an elegant Christmas look.

Also don't forget to leave me a comment for a chance to win a gorgeous package of chipboard from Imaginarium Designs :)

Have a great day!

Two layouts by Tatiana Yemelyanenko

Hello everyone!

It's Tatiana Yemelyanenko here today.

For my first LO I decided to use photo my daughter's feet when she was 12 days old. So I chose soft pastel colours for this project. Background made with gelatos and chalk edgers ink.

Chipboard phrase I covered with three layers of two Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powders.

I covered the arrows with acrylic paint layer, added glaze and pink glitter.

I've used

Here is my second project.
I chose a two year old photo of me and my husband from a poppy field.
I decided to draw watercolour poppies as I didn't have patterned paper or embellishments with them. To add more romantic look to my LO I cut hearts and glued them to the base, after that I added dimension to them using watercolour pencils, pitt artist and big brush pen, pink and gold glitter. 

For this LO I covered chipboard with black pen and layer of transparent embossing powder.

For my second LO I used 'You are my everything' phrase

Happy scrapping!
