Belinda's July Projects

Hi everyone!!
My turn on the blog today and I have an off the page project as well as two cards to share with you.
First up, I created an altered billboard to decorate my son's new bedroom (once it is finished that is!)
I always like to use a mixture of raw chipboard as well as altered chipboard on my projects. Here I have covered some of the chipboard with patterned paper . The hot air balloons have string and an added layer of patterned paper on top to add dimension. I have also added a heat embossed stamped quote to create a chalkboard look on one. Another hot air balloon has been covered with chalkboard cardstock and then I have applied Shimmerz Texturez in Patina over a triangle mask.
Here's what I used:
IDAA0001 Altered Art - The Light of My Life
IDS0010 Shapes - Hot Air Balloons

IDT0010 - Tinies - Hot Air Balloons

IDS0027 Shapes - Four Clouds on a Board

IDDL0023 Designers - Loolabelle's Love Arrows
IDDL0018 Designers - Loolabelle's Nested Arrows
IDS0076 Shapes - 21 Stars in a Board
IDS0028 Shapes - Boy Silhouette Board
Next up I have two cards that I am teaching at Seriously Scrapbooking this month.
I have added lots of lovely layers and textures on these cards. Some of the chipboard has been left raw. The frame and some of the chevrons have been given a couple of coats of white gesso and then outlined with black Posca pen.
Here's what I used:
IDDL0007 Designers - Frame
IDDL0020 Designers - Loolabelle's Chevrons #1
IDDL0005 Designers - Peacock Feather (Tiny) 2 in Board

Thankyou so much for stopping by the blog today.
Please leave a comment to go in the draw to win a pack of chipboard.
