Altered Items with Solange Marques

Hello friends! It's Solange Marques here!
I've made some projects altered items using the beautiful Imaginarium Designs chipboards!

First of all,this altered wood pallete:

 I've glued all of the chipboards on the pallete and I covered them with acrylic gesso. Then I applied a lot of spray inks.
On the alphabet chipboards I've used liquid metal:

Some close up of the chipboards:

Now I'll share with you an altered box:

On this piece I've used the same technique that on the altered palette, covering them with gesso and sprays:

And finally an altered paintbrush:

I've glued the chipboards on the paintbrush:

I've applied  acrylic gesso:

I've added flowers:

And to finish, I've applied sprays :

Colouring Chipboard with Pencils

Hi Everyone

It's Wendy back for this months projects and a couple where I have gone back to something I enjoy immensely and that is colouring with pencils.  The adult colouring in phase is going gangbusters at the moment and I have to admit that I have been caught up in the craze for a while now.  What can I say I just love to colour! You can also achieve a beautiful finish using pencils to colour directly on chipboard as well (note the higher wax content of the pencils gives better coverage).

The first project is a "postcard" and like a couple of my previous projects this was just part of a pull-a-part book I picked up a typo.  The project just lets the chipboard stand out (I have inked this in archival black).  The colouring does take a while but the end result is so worth it. I have also used some black rhinestones to make it really pop!

The next project you can see how vibrant the colour is on the feathers - this has been done with prisma colour pencils.

Hope you like these projects and feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the colour combinations or how to use pencils on chipboard.

Have a great week and keep creating!

September projects - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here and today I have a scrapbook page and cards to share with you.

The September Colour of the month at Imaginarium Designs chipboard is "Kraft/Natural"!!! We would love for you to join in the challenge and create a project using Imaginarium Designs chipboard that is inspired by "Kraft" then send a photo to Jane at (before 24th September) and you will be in the running to win a fabulous chipboard prize pack!! 

This first project is a scrapbook page - of me :)

I started with a 12x12 page of Kraft cardstock and used a painting with plastic technique and watercolor pan paints (brown, green and black) to add detail to the background. Once this was dry I added some KaiserCraft flower stamps underneath where my photo would be.

Next I matted my photo with papers from the 7 Dots Studio Northern lights collection (from the 6x6 paper pad and the diecut tags) and a chipboard flourish.

I left the chipboard raw for this page to keep in the Kraft/natural spirit and I also love the look!

A flair and some black cotton thread were perfect accents for the page.

I love these word stickers in the 7 Dots studio range - perfect for adding to your page!

Next is some fathers day cards. 

I've created 6"x6" card bases using kraft cardstock then matted with papers from the 7 Dots Studio Northern lights collection (from the 6x6 paper pad and the diecut tags).

Then I've added some chipboard alphas and features. For the "dad" card I've left the chipboard raw, and for the other card I inked in brown. Lastly I added some splats of black paint across the cards.
