Sandi's Inspiration Projects

Hi, I'm Sandi and it's great to be able to share with you my latest projects using some of my fantastic Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.
Today I have 2 layouts and a card to share, all completely different in style.

My first layout is a black layout with white, turquoise and gold.

 I was extremely lucky to be able to attend the wonderful Louise Nelson's Mono Printing workshop where I learn't how to do this fantastic technique. If you have the opportunity to go to her class I definitely recommend it, very inspiring.

Over the White and Turquoise background I used gold acrylic paint over an Alphabet stencil

The Chipboard I used included #happy which I embossed with embossing powder with Turquoise Pigment Ink over the chipboard first.
With Nat's Squares Large I used both Turquoise and Gold pigment ink with the matching embossing powder, using them each in a random placement over the chipboard.

 I placed gold pigment ink over the 'Lou's hearts shapes' and embossed using matching embossing powder.

My photo was mounted on black card and then onto a stack of paper which I firstly stapled together before gluing it to the page over some black cotton. I added some oxide metallic embellishments to bring out the turquoise on the background.

Code IDD0040 Nat's Square Large.

Code IDDL0015 Lou's heart shapes.

My second layout is on pattern paper with stenciling using deep red and gold acrylic paint.
The black lines were made by mixing black gesso and water together into a fine tipped squeezy bottle (I use an old empty Glossy Accents bottle) to the consistency that will hold it's shape but flows easily.

I used silver pigment paint and silver embossing powder to cover the ''Loolobelle's nested hexagon and the 'Adore, You'.
The 'Nat's hearts' chipboard was covered in red pigment ink and then also embossed with a matching embossing powder

To finish off the page I added a stack of paper to each side with a piece of distressed white cheese cloth, the embossed chipboard, black cotton, black ink splats and a heart flair.

My last share is a card using Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals Inks 'Mad Hatter' over a embossed flower stamp and then cut it out when dry.
This is a quick simple card to make. 

I sprayed water onto the embossed flower and then sprinkled a tiny amount of the ink powder over and then sprayed more water onto it to make the colour spread and develop it's vibrancy. 
I covered my 'Best wishes for cards' chipboard with white gesso first and let dry before adding multiple layers of the mixed 'Cheshire cat cherry' until the colour depth was what I wanted. When dry I added a coating of Glossy Accents.

 The 'Denise's Art Deco embellishment frame large' was covered with black pigment ink and then black embossing powder.

To finish the card I used a sharpie pen to draw a border on the white card, glued on the chipboard pieces, painted flower stamp and then added black cotton, white cheese cloth, flowers and silver wing embellishments.
