Paint Chips & Pockets with Belinda Spencer


Belinda here today to share two projects featuring a whole heap of Imaginarium Designs chipboard.

First up is my layout for the April challenge at Kraft Plus Challenges.

'Capture The Moment'

As you can see there is a whole heap of different chipboard all working together to be the star of my layout.

I have kept to a lovely soft monochromatic colour scheme for my layout and altered my chipboard accordingly. The cute cloud above was given a coat of Brushed Pewter Distress Stain while the word was coloured with a white Posca Pen. 

My title was also painted with the white Posca Pen. I patched my title together using the 'capture' and 'moment' from the same word board and the 'the' was cut from the 'honouring the past' title.

The tinies stars and Nat's Bubbles were also given a coat of the Brushed Pewter Distress Stain.

Finally the Brushed Pewter was also used on Loolabelle's Pie Chart and Heart embellishment.

I do like to keep it simple when altering my chipboard. Yoou can achieve a stunning look with the simplest of techniques.

'Be Brave Pocket Letter' 

I taught this pocket letter at a recent workshop. It features the fabulous Echo Park Just Be You paper range.

All of my chipboard pieces were painted with heavy white gesso and some were then covered in patterned paper.

Well that is all from me. I hope you are feeling inspired to grab your stash of Imaginarium Designs chipboard and have a play. Remember sometimes less is more when it comes to dressing up your chipboard. A simple swipe of paint is sometimes all it needs.

Thanks so much for checking out my projects today.
