Sarah Shares her April Projects

Hello Imaginarium Designs Fans - Sarah here today to share two new projects with you: an Altered Clipboard and a Mixed Media Layout!
Altered  "Typography"
Mini Clipboard
First up is a mini-clipboard I altered using Graphic 45's Typography collection, embellished with some Imaginarium Designs Tags and some of Loolabelle's Chevrons.
I used two different sizes of Loolabelle's Chevrons #2 and simply painted them with Distress Crackle Paint in Aged Mahogany. I mod-podged sections of the Typography paper onto the tags, inked the edges with Distress Ink in Black Soot and then tied the tags together with some black twine. I finished off the embellishing with some fussy-cut bits from the Typography paper, some Tim Holtz Idea-ology metal embellishments (pen nibs and mini-paperclips) and a cool metal typewriter embellishment I picked up at a local craft store. Here are some close-ups!

Mixed Media Layout
My second project is a mixed media layout featuring a sweet photo of my son! I had lots of fun creating this one - hope you like it!
For the Imaginarium Chipboards on this layout, I have used the following:
  • Hot Air Balloons - painted with Lumiere Light Body Metallic Acrylic in Halo Blue Gold
  • Spade Top Picket Fence - painted with white gesso and then Distress Crackle Paint in Rock Candy and then spritzed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow Mist in Tawny Turquoise
  • Butterfly Border - cut into individual pieces - painted with Viva Decor Maya Gold paint in Turquoise and then rubbed with Inka Gold Rubs in Cobalt Blue and Hematite. Next, I stamped the butterflies with a Prima Stamp and Black Ink and finally added some Ranger Stickles in Patina
Here are some close-ups!
