More from our Guest Designer - Yvonne Yam

Hello there!
It's Yvonne Yam here to share my second project as this month's guest designer - a 12x12 layout featuring my nephews and niece.

The Imaginarium Designs chipboard were all coloured very quickly with Ranger Distress Paints. The plant stems were painted thickly with some gesso before adding the paint to create some texture. For the chipboard "Delightful", I added some Glossy Accents for more dimension to the chipboard.

The banner chipboard was coloured with blue Ranger Distress Paint and then dabbed with white Ranger Distress Paint for a sky effect.
Just gorgeous Yvonne
Thanks for sharing

Layouts by Evgenia Sokolinskaya

Hi everyone!
Evgenia is here and today I will share with you layouts about my cute little nephews.

First one is "Childhood memories" LO with adorable Imaginarium Designs Window with shutters!

For my chippies I used white gesso, cracle paint and distress ink.
I used different size stars to create 3D embellishment. The top star is covered with micro beads.

A little bird is sitting on the window :)

The whole title "Childhood memories" was very large for me, that's why I cut it and used only "memories".

And the volume. I love this ID window because it is very optional. You can make it opened or closed, and you can also make such 3D effect like I did.

Flowers and Birds on board (I used a bird from this set)

My second LO is in green.

And more close ups.

Thank you so much for looking!

Layers with Denise...

Hello ...  my turn again again and I cant believe how quick it comes around. I was sure I had two more days before I had to post. lol!

So this month I thought I would share a card and a layout I have created.

I have been playing with lots of layers on my cards and this is a good example how well the die cuts match the chipboard.

I love how the chipboard fits in perfectly with these gorgeous papers.
The ID butterfly is the ideal way to finish off!

Lots of layers in my layout too.

I have this layout in a frame on my wall at home and I absolutely love it

I have used these chipboards for my projects
I have sprayed my chipboard with paint, and inked the butterfly with Chalk ink

Please leave me a comment to go in the running to win some chipboard.
Natalie will be drawing a winner tonight!
