Contemporary Creating plus a Burst of Colour!

Hi my creative chippie friends!

Welcome to a new month of fun and inspirational creations here at Imaginarium Designs.
Amanda here today, & I have two very different projects to share with you.

My first creation is this clean, simple, & contemporary layout,

"Love You Darling Daughter"

Isn't she just divine?!! So very loved,
& hence that fantastic chipboard title!
Imaginarium Designs have such an enormous (& fabulous) collection of words and phrases that are just perfect for all your layouts and crafting needs.
My biggest problem is often deciding which one to use!
 I do especially love the Darling Daughter chipboard - one of my all time faves!
Doesn't the red just 'pop' with the black/white & kraft paper?

Let's take a closer look.......

Loving those chippie hearts!
 The hearts really accent the title phrase and partner perfectly with the patterned paper.

How good does that chipboard look?! 
Because of the simplicity of the design, the chipboard didn't need to much enhancing - 
just a striking red ink applied!
The monochromatic colours really make the simplistic design look so effective -
that awesome chipboard brings the whole page together!

Love You

Darling Daughter

Lou's Heart Shapes

Love that stylish, simplistic & contemporary layout but,
it's time for something completely different..............

My second creation is just bursting with colour, paint & fun!

An inspirational canvas art,

"Spread Your Wings And Fly"

A lil bit of mixed media madness going on here -
 but great to get painty with the chippies!

Aren't those intricate butterflies just the prettiest?! 
Oh so delicate and beautifully cut.
They have been painted with Chromacryl acrylics in varying shades of cool blue.
Just gorgeous! 
Let's take a closer look.....

The ornate oval frame has been lightly coated in metallic gold paint, 
then treated with Glossy Accents.
Looks lovely, but the stars of the show are definitely those butterflies!

Whether you're a mixed media fan or not,
 there's no denying that those butterflies are just the prettiest chippies you've ever seen!
