For the love of Borders

I am super excited to share with you what our Creative Team 
have made showcasing our borders.

First up is Sue.

"I have used 2 borders on this layout to form a background texture,
along with some regular shaped chipboard.

"Then I have painted with gesso and sprayed with colour to make my background.
I have embossed cogs and clocks with aged gold embossing powder and sprayed with black dylusions for an aged look. Once the background is sprayed with the turquoise colour I have rubbed over the texture with gold paint. A simple butterfly painted with shimmery paint to match. I then double embossed the title to match all the other gold happening on the layout"

Miriam has created the most incredible Gift Box .... including Post Cards...

"I used Graphic 45 "Safari Adventure" paper to alter this gift box. Cut out the Imaginarium Circle Border for the top of the box and added a little book on the top also, with some cut out animals on the sides. Also made some post cards to go inside."

Amanda's layout shows how versatile a border can be.

So for this theme I wanted to show off the versatility of the border chipboard. I've snipped mine and used on both a layout and on a card - demonstrating how far one border can really stretch!
This border trim has been inked in Archival black and then given a light spray of Kaisermist in charcoal. 


She has also created a little card too

 For this section of border, I've used Versa Ink in white, & also applied Glitzin Glamour
in Crystalina on the hearts too! Very sweet

Leeann has used a few different boards and has cut each one in half, creating a photo matt background. Finishing this page off using different chipboard mini shapes. Leeann found some weather-worn distress powder and used this on all the chipboard pieces.

Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
