A great start to the year with Sandi's Inspirational Designs

Hi everyone, it's great to be back to share some more of my art and to inspire you to try some new ideas. 
Over the Christmas break I looked at my beautiful family and realised how much my girls have grown up. With these thoughts in mind I went searching for some old and new photos. 

The chipboard pieces I used on this layout were painted with Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paint 'Lime', 'Magenta' and 'Lemon' because of their vibrant colours and great coverage. The paper and die-cut elements  I used were from '7 Dots Studio: Peeled Paint' collection. The cheese cloth was dyed with Lindys Stamp Gang inks and the ephemera behind the photos were old Australian children's story magazines.

The chipboard I used on this layout were:
Chris small arrows and shapes board. IDDC0001
Circle border 8 inch IDB0008
All grown up IDP0027
My second share is a magical moment between an Auntie and her niece; my daughter and my beautiful grand daughter 6yrs ago. I just love the beach and sea, the colours on a summers day are glorious and one of my favourite shades of blue. 

The background was created by using a roller to spread Dina Wakley Turquoise and Sky acrylic paints over the white cardstock with a thinned white paint dripped down the centre of the colours. The chipboard was painted with matching colours from the photo with the heart being painted in Magenta and blue hemp cord to frame the photo. The square frame piece behind the photo is cut from the 'Travel shots' chipboard piece.

 The third and last piece I'd like to share is a little different where it doesn't physically have chipboard attached onto it's surface instead I used it as stencils and stamps. I needed another art pouch to hold my Dina Wakley paints so I thought I'd make it uniquely mine.

Using my Dina Wakley paints I rubbed different colours over the surface allowing each to dry so I didn't accidentally end up with brown instead of these vibrant colours. Using the cut out section of the heart, crosses and arrow chipboard I used a makeup sponge to add colours. Adding thinned black and white paint in a fine tipped squeezy bottle around the shapes and in scribble writing adds depth and definition to the finished pouch.
