Mixed Media layouts with Amanda Baldwin

Hi Imaginarium Designs Friends! 

Amanda here, and today I have two very different, but both really inspiring, mixed media layouts to share! So without further ado, here's my creations for November....

First up, I am sharing this super cool boy layout, 

"Right NOW"

Awesome, huh?!! 
I absolutely adore this boy, and this layout just captures his personality perfectly!
Bold, bright colours, exciting, energetic and fun!
I've used the Dear Lizzy: Saturday collection (incl. the coordinating stickers & veneer numerals) combined with some fabulous chippies to create a really cool look!
1. Just for fun, 2. just love. 3. right now 4. life is now
Love this!
Let's take a closer look.....

Both the phrase, 'Right NOW' & the pie chart chipboards have been inked in Staz On in black. I wanted to create a cut file background look with the pie charts; so I paper pieced the sections, and used them to layer my photo onto. 
Love how this turned out.....

To enhance the piecharts, and really make them 'pop', I also created a circular Gelatos design beneath them. I also added some watercolour splats for fun too! Cool effect!

The piechart peg from the Dear Lizzy collection coordinated with the chipboard perfectly & was the inspiration for my layout's colour scheme. The crosses chipboards have been inked in complimentary Red, Lime & Saffron Yellow inks.

Such a super cool page for my super cool boy! Love it!

My second mixed media layout is very soft, delicate, and feminine - much like my subject! 
Here's my layout,


Swoon! I love how delicate and pretty this is!
I've used embellishments from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio: Colour Me Happy collection, as well as watercolour paints, cotton and our favourite chippies to create this stunning page! 
Let's take a closer view......

Super pretty! That divine frame, and title, 'Beautiful' have been given a light spritz in Lindy's Stamp Gang: Straburst Spray in Golden Oats. 

Love how delicate that golden finish is! Soft gold with a hint of warmth - simply beautiful, literally!

The flourishes are all embossed in white, and those sweet little hearts are inked in Versa Ink: Petal Pink. They're just divine!!! 

Those flourishes are really intricate!
