Minimalistic Approach

Hi everyone! Lg here sharing a few more layouts using some Imaginarium Design Chipboards. For today, I have used my chipboards minimally just to give accent to my pages.

For my first layout,  I was inspired with all the negative pages I see online. I used a black and white photo to contrast the bright colors of the MME collection. I made the background subtle by dabbing white gesso on most part of my design. With the addition of stamps, mists and watercolour pencils, the background blended well with my theme.

Products Used: My Minds Eye Fine and Dandy collection, Ranger Ideology stamp, October Afternoon Mists, Lily Bee rubons, Faber Castel watercolour pencil, Gesso, Washi tape.

Imaginarium Design Chipboards used:
For the chipboard, heart chipboard, I dipped it to gesso and added sand to build the texture. You might notice that I do this often with my chipboards, that is because I love the textured effect it creates.

For my second page, I did a monochromatic page. I love pages like this because the effect is always beautiful. This is also the perfect time to use scraps of papers you have. If you are like me, I store scraps by colour, making pages like this is very easy.

Products Used: Pink Paislee and Lily Bee patterned papers, Kaisercraft rubon, Cosmo Cricket chipboard embellishment, Silhouette Cameo, MME brad, Shimmerz paint, gesso, Ranger Stickles, glitters.

Imaginarium Design Chipboards used:

I removed the bird on the top of this chipboards because I am thinking of using it on another project later on.  The chipboard was initially painted with gesso so that I can get the colour hue that I wanted. I have used 3 shades of Shimmerz to paint over my chipboard, I also added the same colour of Stickles to make it more shinny.

Thanks for dropping by!
