More chipboard, more flowers and more of ME, Alison Bevis

Welcome to Monday!!
That means a NEW week with some New inspirations from the
Imaginarium Designs team

Keep an eye out for more FUN CHIPBOARD TECHNIQUES blog posts this month too - so many great ideas to colour chipboard.

I was thinking what I'd like to do for March,
and decided that I had to have something floral on each layout, I know you think - That's easy!!
...and yes, it's always easy to add a few blooms here and there,
so this is what I did...

"A True Love Story Never Ends" layout

A couple of sheets of patterned paper, a bit of lace, a bunch of blooms and a beautiful Title..

Title painted with paint which changes colour depending on how you tilt the page - it's very shimmery - before the paint had a chance to dry I spritzed the chipboard with a Mica Spray - I love the way the mist dried into droplets.

A NEW Flourish - snipped into two to extend your chipboard piece - Coloured with a Mica Mist in green - This chipboard is so fine I curled it up and around to sit in the flowers.

You can almost see how shimmery the chipboard becomes when it dried!!

and more florals...
"Beautiful Girl" layout

This layout has only 2 sheets of patterned paper - a little fussy cutting and then the remainder for some torn layers. A title created with 2 pieces inked in the same shade of purple, along with a few of "Nat's Hearts".

The frame inked in a coordinating Blue to frame this lovely photo of Father and Daughter.

The Flourish has been inked and misted with a couple of shades of green.

and another one of "Nat's Hearts" gessoed, inked and misted in Green.

and more floral patterned papers in the
"Magical Moments" layout

All of the patterned paper is from 2 sheets, cut to make the most of the pattern. It was quite busy so I dipped my finger in the Gesso and swiped it around the middle section - I also gave the page a border by dragging my Gessoed finger along the edge. I'll add some journalling to the tag under the photo.

The title has a coat of gesso then randomly pressed onto the ink pad for a speckled finish.

Loolabelle's Star Bursts were also gessoed, inked and then lightly misted - while the mist was still wet I covered them with 'glossy accents' - and look at how they dried with a variegated orange look - I thought it was a little cool?

The Frame was inked, a little dribble of crackle paint, then covered with 'glossy accents' before sprinkling tiny glass micro beads all over the rectangular frame - I hope you get a chance to try this, it creates an almost luminous finish to the chipboard... which was perfect for my sunset photo!!

There is so many NEW designs of chipboard -
