"My Favourite Destination" Guest Designer Adriana Bolzon

Hello everyone,

Adriana Bolzon  here today and I am super excited to share with you all,
a layout that I have created using some of the fabulous chipboards
from "Imaginarium Designs"….
In my layout I tried to make the chipboard compliment my layout photo,
the photo is of the Acropolis of Athens.
This is one of my favourite destinations, I do have a few other places I would love to go.
We were very lucky to go there and it is an amazing place.
I love to visit ancient and lost worlds, this one is mostly in ruins.
I wanted the chipboard to look rustic and aged looking too.

The papers are from the Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" designed by Denise Boddey.
Firstly I created a textured background for my layout with stamping, texture paste and stencils.

Next I applied thick white gesso to all the chipboard pieces, once dried, I embossed
with Ranger Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder.
The chipboards now have a great rustic and vintage look to them.
This embossing powder doesn't make the chipboard glossy, it is
really lovely matt finish to the chipboards

The photo frame I cut in half and adhered it to each side of my photo.

I also adhered some chipboard words at the bottom of my page, and some very delicate vines.

here are all the Imaginarium Designs chipboards that I used for my layout.
Until next time, Thanks for looking :) 

I will be back later this month with another project with the great

chipboards from Imaginarium Designs
