Hello Hello :)

Today I would like to share with you some soon to be new release chipboard designs that I have designed. I have created a couple of layouts using my new heart speech bubbles, and also a layout created be the fabulous DT member Leonie Neal-Dawson.

First up here is a pic of the new design chipboard, these were actually hand carved stamps that I created late last year, and I thought they would be fun to have as a chipboard design.








I have also used the following designs :)

Two Lay-Outs by Romy

Hi!

Welcome on the Imaginarium Designs blog today!

Today I would like to show you two lay-outs that I made with some lovely chipboard shapes. 
My first lay-out features a grey/yellow colour scheme and a photo of me and my mother.


I framed my photo on this lay-out with this gorgeous clock frame. 
The clock was slightly inked with brown ink to give it a bit more contrast.


I used two of these corners in the left lower and right upper corner of my lay-out.


I also incorporated these wonderful hearts below my photo. I attached a metal arrow on top of them, making them resemble a heart with a Cupid's arrow hit through them.



In the right lower corner of my lay-out I incorporated two of these lovely butterflies. They were also made brown with distress ink and I added tiny studs in their centers.



On my second lay-out, I scrapped a photo of my boyfriend with a more masculine colour scheme. 


I also used an Imaginarium Designs chipboard frame to frame my photo on this lay-out.
This time I used an oval frame, which I heat embossed with black embossing powder.




I also used a pretty gear in the right lower corner, which was also made black with embossing powder.


I hope you liked my blogpost!

Cards and Tags .....

 Hello to you all

Today I am sharing a couple of beautiful tags and cards created by our super talented Design Team.

Chitos has created this gorgeous romantic tag.
I love the depth of color and that background is just divine.


And Julianne has created a Mixed Media Tag as well as a card.

That fabulous flower is beautifully framed by the flourish and those tiny peacock feathers are a perfect addition.

 The card that Jules created has combined a few different techniques with the chipboard - I love the Shabby Embossing Powder on the doily - Looks super cute!
Thanks so much for sharing girls!

Have a great day

Mixed Media Fun!!

Hi, everyone. Carol here today. I will be sharing 3 projects, one of which is a spin-off project.

For the first project, I created a tag. Its a super early gift to my hubby for our 11th wedding anniversary. Our wedding anniversary is on 11 September (a date my hubby booked the wedding hall without realising its 911). LOL... Really early gift, right. Who says we can't make a gift in advance??

For the tag, I painted it with grey acrylic paint on both sides, stamped with swirl stamps and inked the edges. 

For the chipboards, I painted them and added glitter. Love the sparkle!!


 For the back of tag, I leave it simple and just added the sentiment stickers


"Cheeky Monkey" Layout

I loved this photo of my boy. Loved his cheeky expression and pretty eyes!! He used to love play pretend. And in this picture, he overturned 2 Ikea tables and chairs and turn them into a ship. The frisbee-looking thing he held in his hands was the helm. How creative kids are!


Here's how I do the background:
1) Apply a thin layer of clear gesso over page. Spread texture paste over Prima stencil. Heat dry.


2) Using a wet brush, spread diluted brown mists around the textures.

3) Stamped randomly around the textures with swirls stamps. Using gel medium as glue to pick up some microbeads and seed beads and spread around page.


4) Then adhere the painted chipboards, photo, papers and other embellishments.

For the corner chipboards (I used the negative of a chipboard corner as the base here), I left it raw.

For the alpha chipboards and the 2 James corner chipboards, I painted them with acrylic paint before use a dry, flat, stiff bristle brush to pick up brown mist and drag lightly across the chipboards. I wanted to create a wood effect. For the title I just add glitter glue over the painted surface to make it stand out.

For my next project, its actually a spin off of this layout. This layout is not the actual first piece that I created. Because I made a mistake in adding some blue drips across the page and I spoilt it!!! So I had to redo this layout.
In this photo, you can see the first piece (bottom) and the redone page above. I pulled out all the chipboards, embellishments and photo and papers. Normally we would have thrown away the spoilt piece. But I kept it and a project was spin off from it.


Here's what I made with half of the spoilt piece.

"Love Every Minute" Mixed Media Canvas



For the canvas sides, I do the same as the layout by spreading texture paste over stencil and mist it.

For the chipboard titles, I painted them white then use a black pen and write out the words. Recently I'm into calligraphy and I love this font. 


For the extra tiny Kerri Flourish chipboards, I gesso over them and watercolor with distress inks.


To create more texture on the chipboard swirl corners, I dabbed gesso over to create the rough effect and watercolor with distress inks.


Hope you are inspired by my projects. Here's the chipboards I have used:
