Living in Colour!

Hi my chipboard lovelies!
Welcome back for more Imaginarium Designs amazingness!

Amanda here, & I am sharing some incredibly colourful creations with you!
During a recent scrap stash clean out - you know - the one where you find all those awesome paper collections you so desperately needed and then hid away? 
Well, during one of those moments, 
I came across a fabulous collection (or three) of Amy Tangerine papers - 
 I know, what a find!!!
& it reminded me of all those luscious, vibrant layouts I had planned....
So, here's the start of my life, Living in Colour! 

"You Are My Everything" layout

I know - some serious colour & chipboard love!!!
It's like a rainbow confetti chipboard convention going on,
but oh me, oh my, I LOVE it!
I collaged the clouds in a cute newsprint paper 
& left the honeycomb background natural just to balance all that colour.
The background is a combination of gesso, 50s Diner Gelatos, 
Glitzin' Glamour glitter & the odd sequin.
And how sweet is my not-so-baby girl? She truly is my everything!

Let's take a closer look at some of those delicious chippies.....

How sweet is that saffron yellow flourish? 
& I just adore those black gesso treated arrows - too cute!

I used black gesso on my title and phrase chipboards too......

I had so much fun creating this page!
Here are all those awesome chippies I used....

"Happy Days" layout

So not so much a rainbow, but a definite POP! of chipboard & colour here -
super cool, huh?!
This photo is an oldy that I've been going to scrap for ages now, 
I'm so glad I finally did! I can't believe how little my two look here!
Time really does fly - so be sure to scrap your Happy Days too!
Lagoon, Saffron & Berry Ink Pads from Kaisercraft dress up my chippies on this page.
I am totally loving the vibrancy!
Let's take a closer peak......

Yep, uber cool & so very happy!
Love this layered look of paper & chipboard - really creates a point of visual interest.
Here's the chipboard I used for this page...

As Valentine's Day is less than 2 weeks away, 
my final creation is a fresh, contemporary & super fun LOVE card!

I know - more cute colour - but isn't it fun?!!
To balance all that colour, I've drawn a black pen ink border on my kraft card base
& then repeated this on my 'raw' frame chipboard.
The result is a fresh and contemporary look - Love this!
Hope it inspires you to create a lil something for the special someone in your life!
- If you love someone, then tell them right now - 
Here are the chippies I used for this card....

So that's my take on Living in Colour!
Hope I've brightened your day & inspired you to have a lil colour fun with our fabulous chippies!
