Mixed Media Canvas and a Scrapbook page

Hello to all our Imaginarium Designs readers.
Leonie here today with my November shares.

First up I have a Mixed Media canvas that I created recently as a gift for a friend.
I had a hard time parting with it as I really loved the finished product but it's nice to 
know that's it's now bringing a smile to someone else's face. 

The background colour is mostly using Lindy's Stamp Gang Tres Chic range of sprays
and Stencil Girl and Memory Box stencils.

The various sweet chipboard pieces I used were all painted gold and then randomly brushed
with white gesso.

Kerr's Flourish Tiny 

Small Clock Face

 Leaves and Circles

For the title I used gold embossing enamel from Stampendous.
It sets so thick and smooth on the chipboard I really love the effect.



My second project is a page I embellished solely with Imaginarium Chipboard.
and used Websters Pages Ocean Melody range of papers.

First up is this lovely cluster of layered Cherry Blossoms and Twig chipboard.
Inked for colour and Kindy Glitz for sparkle and Gesso for a mottled effect on the Cherry Blossoms.

Loolabelle's Cherry Blossom


The title piece 'Cousins' was painted with gesso and then several layers of white paint 
with a stippling brush to add a subtle texture.


For the Monarch Butterfly I used the same technique as for the Cherry Blossoms.
Ink, Kindy Glitz and Gesso.

And to blend everything together the last piece of chipboard, this cute oval frame was inked with the
same colour as the twig chipboard.
