April Scrapbook pages - by Leonie

Hello! Leonie here today with two scrapbook pages to share for my April post.  

First up is this page titled 'Cheers' using some lovely corner Chipboard pieces along with an 
alphabet set and some butterflies.

I love these super cute and funky shaped butterflies.  They were painted pink and then stamped with black Archival ink.  To soften them a little a swiped the edges with a white ink pad.

Nestled amongst the flowers on this page there are two corner pieces.
Both of which have been painted blue and then dabbed with shades of 
green paint for a mottled effect.

I really like the size of these Chipboard Alpha's which are between 1.5-2cm each.
 I've inked them with black Achival ink and then
outlined them with a white gel pen to make them really 
grab your attention.

Little Treasure
Next up is Little Treasure.
I had a bit of a stash buster on this page with old patterned papers I've never got round to using! 
Feels good to finally put a photo on them and of course I've teamed them up with some 
lovely chipboard pieces.

The 'Little Treasure' title suited this sweet picture of my only Daughter.
It's been painted White and then a given a coat of blue paint to highlight the word treasure.
I use Paint Dabbers usually when I colour chipboard with paint.
I just find it the easiest and least messy way - not that I don't like getting messing on my pages but
it does save time cleaning up. ;)

The chipboard piece behind my photo is a 12inch border.  Of course I didn't use the 
whole boarder I cut off two of the shapes and will use them on a future page.
No use having perfectly pretty chipboard hidden behind my photo.

The chipboard at the top of this page is the same shape as the border piece just 
a larger size so it helps tie everything together.  Both of these were painted white and
then lightly stamped with a texture stamp and blue distress paint.

Thanks so much for stopping by the Imaginarium Designs blog today.
I hope you've enjoyed what I have to share.
Please leave a comment to go into the draw to win a pack of chipboard.
