Sandi S November creations

Hi everyone, Wow where is the year going!!!! Time is flying and it's my turn to share with you again my creations with our wonderful Imagination Designs Chipboard.

My first piece is my October ID Journal page. This is a page is of my beautiful grandchildren using old fashioned tin can phones in a photo shoot for their great grandpa who was entering a photo competition. 

The background was created using a variety of white, blue and green acrylic paints, stamping in gold acrylic and black StazOn, doodling done with a whiteout pen and black acrylic drawing mix in a fineline applicator bottle. The chipboard chosen was perfect to reflect the fun conversation that was happening between my grandchildren. Lots of laughter and Blah Blah and joking around. The arrows were coated in a red acrylic paint for the pop factor and the conversation words in black gesso.

I suddenly realised I hadn't made a card for my nephew for his birthday and my mum was dropping by in 40 mins to pick one up to take to Adelaide...oh oh..

Quick grab the card stock( sprinkled with 2 Lindy's Stamp Gang magical shakers colours and water spray, stamped with Staz On ink, some drawing acrylic paint and pieces of chippie: cogs (cover with Distress ink), a little boy, arrows ( coated with Prima acrylic paint and wax) and Happy birthday (painted with black gess). And of course a heat gun (life saver) and 30mins later a card signed and placed in an envelope with some money was handed to mum as she dropped by with 10mins to spare. YAY!!

I left my favourite creation for the last share of today. I have been inspired by several artists over the last few years including our own Sue Smyth on the Imaginarium Design Team who has been creating amazing 3D book covers and canvas's. I have been saying I'm going to give it a go for what seems forever. So here is my first attempt and I must admit I'm wrapped with how it have come together.

I glued all the chipboard pieces, small frame, resin bits and bobs and metal embellishments I could find onto the book cover, taking my time to explore and experiment in their placement. I then covered them with black gesso and then when dry I added layers of colour with combinations of Prima wax, paints and powders, stamping script writing with StazOn black.

Thanks for popping over to Imaginarium Designs and checking out my latest pieces of art and hope it has inspired your to explore some new ideas such as exploring new techniques and products in journals, making cards and taking the big step to try something that you have always wanted to try and were unsure about. Go for it it's very rewarding.
