"what a stunning layout...love the embellishment for this little guy page...awesome!"
Can both of you ladies contact Imaginarium Designs with your address so we can send you some chipboard to play with.

So now to share some of our amazing designs team work. I have choosen to share projects from our Japan Design Team Members. I love these talented ladies, their work is so perfect and detailed. You can spend ages looking at them and see more and more elements. They all continue to amaze me and I love getting an email from them, opening it up and seeing what they had done.
First up is a stunning layouts from Kaori.

Just look at this wonderful layout of this special little Lady. I love her attention to detail and all the little bits and pieces Kaori adds to her layouts. Not to mention the back ground on her page. Kaori must spend hours on her layouts and it shows in the beautiful way she ties it all together. I love her work and the depth of colour she creates on her layouts.

IDS0001 Butterfly Small

IDC0007 Corner with four circles (small)
I love seeing the finish Kaori gets on her chipboard, for this layout it looks like she has used gesso to get the chipboard white then inked part of it with different inks and blended them.
Such a pretty layout with so many layers and plenty to see, again you could spent a lot of time looking at this beautiful page and still find something new each time you looked.

Next up is Maiko
Again another lovely project from a very talented Japan Design Team Member. Maiko has done a wall hanging (off the page) project.

This is a beautiful and delicate work of art. The photo of the child is so touching and just look at all the beautiful bits and pieces. I love the way she has pearls just draped, and  the precious bell hanging from them. Maiko has used lots of chipboard on the piece - 7 in fact. Maiko painted all of them with acrylic paint, she sprayed them with mist and then embossed them with embossing powders to get the finish she required.

IDS00037 Edward Relief Window ( one of Maiko's Favorite chipboard Shapes)
"I love this Edward Relief.It's useful!" Maiko

IDT00019 Bird Cage (Small)

IDFl0011 Long Swirly Flourish (Small)
You will need to look hard at Maiko's layout to find this piece of chipboard!

I love the way Maiko has added bling to her chipboard and a button.

Last not not least is another amazing layout from Asuka

I have been a big fan of Auskas work for a long time. Just look at the back ground. She must spend hours working on her layouts before she even starts adding all the elements. Again you could spent ages looking at this and still find more bits and pieces she has tucked here and there, which adds to the wow factor of her layout.

Just look at the finish Auska has got on her chipboard. I wish I could speak Japanise or could watch her in action as she creates her layouts. Eveyone is a master piece and something to be tresured.

IDS0004 Out little Man

IDS0005 Clock 4.5 inch & IDS0006 Clock 3.5 inch
(Auska used two diffent sizes in our clocks, she used the 3.5 inch and 4.5 inch)
