"This moment"

I've used the very on trend cross's and chevrons totally love them! plus a script word and alphas for the title. The title was left raw I like that grey tone on the photo. I used the distress stain, picket fence which is a white color for the chevrons and cross's.

Good As Gold and A Wedding Anniversary!


Hello and welcome to the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard blog.
Leonie here today sharing my chipboard creations for February.   This month I decided to go with a bit of a gold theme, all the chipboard I've used has been coloured gold in various ways.   Gold still seems to be very popular which is fine by me because I love the way it looks on my scrapbook pages. 

This first page features my parents in their younger days out on a date, with it almost being Valentines day I thought it an appropriate photo to scrap.  Plus, today is the 10th of February - their wedding anniversary- married 54years, what an awesome achievement.  
Congragulations and love Mum and Dad!!  xx

I've added lots of Imaginarium Chipboards and teamed it up with the Hello Love paper collection from crate paper.


I used gold Stampendous embossing powder to emboss the chipboard frame and large heart on this page.   The script words I painted gold and then added gold glitter.  I just love how the gold chipboard all stands out against the pink, red and turquoise of the patterened papers.





All the chipboard I used on this page are linked below to the Seriously Scrapbooking shop.  Home of Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.












My Second page today, as I mentioned has gold chipboard pieces as well. 
I painted all the chipboard on this page with gold acrylic paint. 
















Thanks for stopping by the Imaginarium Designs blog.
Don't forget to leave a comment to go in the draw for a prize pack our chipboard.

Cheers and Happy Crafting 
Leonie.

Follow Your Dreams Layout

Hello everyone! Julianne here today, sharing a layout that is a little different from my usual. 

Sometimes, life gets in the way, and we forget about us, and what we need, and occasionally want. So, I created this layout as a reminder - a reminder to follow MY dreams, a reminder to stop and smell the roses, a reminder to not ever give up, or forget that I am important too. 


FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS

I have created this layout on a 12 x 12 piece of chipboard. I started by covering the chipboard with two coats of white gesso, and allowing it to dry. I then found a mask that I liked, laid it over the chipboard, and filled in the centre strip spaces with texture paste. I then allowed it to dry thoroughly. 


Next, I added Glimmermist (Red-Nosed Reindeer), creating the dribbled effect with a syringe dropper. This gives me maximum control on where my Glimmermist is placed. But be careful, you do not want too much on your page, as it can spread in the wrong directions. The key is to work slowly. 


Next, I chose a dark, smoky coloured glimmermist (Raven), and splattered it over the page, in random places. I created these splatters by holding the spray stem from inside the bottle, over my page, and tapping it lightly with my finger, in the places that I wanted splatter. 


Next, I coated the compass, needle and corners with Inka Gold (Platinum). I then took the compass and needle, and coated it with Glimmer Glaze (Pewter), dabbing off the excess before it was completely dry, to help create an aged and weathered look. I then glued the corners to the page, and added the compass and needle towards the top of the page, slightly off-centre.  


Next, I added Dimensional Magic in random spots on the masked area, and also along the outer egdes of the corners, I then sprinkled micro beads all over these areas. Allow to dry thoroughly before proceeding. The micro beads create such an amazing texture. 


I then completed my layout with flowers, vines, wooden embellishment pieces, touches of kindy glitz, and Liquid Pearls around the outer edge of the compass. I finished with my title, and a little personal journaling, to remind me of what is important.
