Favourite Holiday Photos - with Tracey Fowler

Hi Everyone,

It is fantastic to be back here at Imaginarium Designs sharing with you my projects and also to be creating again. I don't get much of a chance to spend time in my craft room over the summer school holiday break so it was nice to spend some time in their creating this week while the boys started back at school.

"Down By The Sea"

It only seemed fit to create a Summer themed layout since we have just finished the school/summer holidays. My younger son has a love of the beach, especially the waves!

To create this layout I chose a paper range that had blues, greens and hint of purple. I have used the Imaginarium Designs stencil Crosses Stencil IDMM006 and white crackle texture paste. Once this dried I used a teal blue spray to add colour into the cracks of the crackle paste. I have also used flicks of gold, gun metal spray along with adding random texture stamp using a black ink.

For the Imaginarium Designs title Down by the Sea, I have used a metallic black embossing powder. I liked how this embossing powder has some shimmer and sparkle which reminds me of the ocean.

I have heat embossed the Chevron Boarder IDB016, using an aged white with flecks of gold. I have then used a patina effect paints to give the chipboard a metal/rusty look. I have cut the Chevron Boarder IDB016 into pieces and placed it on my layout.

I have created a cluster using pieces of metal and flowers. I have used the patina effect paints to bring all the elements together to create a unified look.

"Every Picture has a Story to Tell"

This layout I have used a photo of one of our most treasured family holidays. Yes it was summer time here in Australia, but while everyone was sunning themselves, we were rugged up in  Finland. 
I placed layers of tags, corrugated cardboard, tissue paper, vellum and die cuts under the photo.

For the ID Chipboard Title  Every Picture has a Story to Tell, have coloured it using a black stamp pad. I didn't want a raised or shiny finish on the title, I wanted it simply black.

 I have used a white embossing powder on this gorgeous  ID chipboard Flourish.

To complete the flower cluster I used Loolabelle's Cherry Blossom (3 in a board) IDD0068 and coloured them using a rose colour ink pad. 

Here is a picture of all the ID Chipboard that I used for my projects


Thanks for stopping by and looking at my projects. I am really excited about this upcoming year and sharing with you my creations.
