Brother & Sister


Hi there!

I'm so excited to be sharing my first post with you here at Imaginarium Designs! Imaginarium Designs have so many gorgeous products but I am always drawn to the twords/phrases first. I loved the Brother & Sister phrase chipboard & have so many photos that I can use with it!



 Start by applying a coat of gesso. Use a sponge & apply Stampin Up 'Bashful Blue' all over.  Then use Prima chalk ink in Farmer Jeans applying a heavy layer to the bottom of & and Sister adjusting the pressure to a medium layer half way up to Brother. use a sponge & Stampin Up 'Bashful Blue' & gently blend the colours half way up to Brother. As a top coat apply Shimmerz in Sky Blue to the top half of Brother.
To create a vintage/shabby fence first apply some Impasto quite roughly with a small trowel. Once dry apply a coat of Ranger Distress crackle paint in 'Walnut Stain'. When it dries the pint will crack to show the impasto underneath.
Apply a coat of gesso. Once dry use Shimmerz in 'Sky Blue' for a gorgeous translucent colour. Finish off with some bling from Websters Pages

I really wanted a shabby chic/femminine look for this cute photo of Evie. You can't go wrong with these beautiful butterfly pieces to really girly up the page!

 Apply a coat of gesso. Once dry apply Versa Mark ink in 'Ash Rose' to the bottom half & Versa Mark ink in 'Laurel Leaf' to the top half. To give some extra bling use some Ranger Liquid Pearls in 'Petal Pink' & Viva Pearl Pen in 'Light Green'
Apply gesso to the lattice door & butterfly. Once dry apply a coat of Ranger Distress Crackle Paint in 'Shabby Shutter'. I applied a really thick coat so that it would crackle more giving a more shabby/distressed look. Apply Versa Mark 'Petal Pink' to the entire butterfly. Use a Viva Pearl Pen in 'Ice White' to the top half of the butterfly. Paint some Modge Podge on the bottom half of the butterfly. While it is still wet sprinkle Shimmerz Enamelz in Sparklicious then dry with a heat gun.

Apply gesso to the oval bracket. Once dry apply white acrylic paint. Ink the edges with Ranger Distress Ink in 'Walnut Stain' to the edges. Add some Liquid Pearls in 'Petal Pink'.
