September Projects with Belinda Spencer

Happy Sunday!!

Belinda here today to share a handful of my recent layouts created using some of the most fabulous Imaginarium Designs chipboard pieces.

I have five...yes FIVE...layouts to share today so let's get stuck in!

'Create Your Own Dreams'

I created this layout using case file no. 208 over at CSI. I painted all of my chipboard pieces with heavy duty white gesso. I applied Watering Can Archival Ink over the top of the title to co-ordinate with the gorgeous Cocoa Vanilla Studios Love Always papers that I used.

IDS0063 Large Compass and Needle

'Believe in Your Dreams'

This layout was created for the September challenge at Kraft Plus Challenges using a stunning melon colour palette.

Again for this layout, I painted all of my chipboard pieces with heavy duty white gesso. Iadded each shape piece to a cute cluster and layered on some wood veneer pieces (Please note that the wood veneer pieces are not by Imaginarium Designs) as well as some sweet epoxy dots. I used some super pretty papers from Cocoa Vanilla Studios as well as cute cloud embellishments from Charm's Creations.

IDDL0022 Loolabelle's Chevrons #2


This was another layout I created playing along with CSI case file no. 209. You may have noticed a bit of a theme with my chipboard treatment so far. Yep. These pieces are also painted with white gesso. It is my go to product for altering my chipboard. At least I am consistent! 

(Please note that all wood veneer pieces are non Imaginarium Designs).

'Fantastic Mr & Mrs Fox'

I couldn't wait to scrap this photo of my two children all dressed up in their costumes for book week at school last week. I think they did an amazing job of painting their own masks. And it was the perfect excuse to use the 'Mr & Mrs' title!

  2. these are amazing. i love your style! just saw your mr. & mrs. fox in the jot magazine. beautiful!! what brand of gesso do you use? i've tried this before with wood veneer and had mixed results with the gesso i bought (not a very bright/true white)- by contrastyour "mr. & mrs." chipboard looks very white. also i love the word phrase stickers on your fox layout - are those black and white? if so do you happen to know the brand/name? also love the b&w background crosses paper if you happen to know it :) really cool belinda, thanks for sharing and inspiring
