Guest Designer ...... Irit Shalom

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit Shalom is here again and this is my last post as Imaginarium September Guest Designer.

This time I worked with whatever chipboards left (lesson learned- try to keep more of products for the last post...). But then it was such a fun to make this last layout and I think it really tells a story of my dear 2 and something years old grandson Omer who already was 4 times abroad (even went to Thailand and Italy twice). Those are studio photos I used here, but they were so perfect  for those chipboard frames and a lot of travel stamping I added over the patterned paper.

I used 2 frames to frame 2 very similar photos  and even found the background paper that fits the photos brick background. Both frames were inked with blue distress ink. The criss cross frame was left inked only. The polaroid frame was also heat embossed with clear embossing powder and looks shiny.

 I made the title from two different boards: Favorite came from photo frame and Moment came from Capture Moment Smile board. Both words and two flourishes were painted with Gelatos and I didn't try to make it pretty: you still can see a lot of paint left " as is". I think it makes it unique. But then as this is water color kind of a paint I added some fixative over the chipboards.

The hearts piece was painted in the same way as the title, but then I added some blue paint and mixed it to a different look.
And here are some stamped embellishments I made for this page . I know those are not chipboards, but they look so great on this travel page.

Here are Imaginarium products used for this page:

This is it. This was my last post as Imaginarium Guest designer.

I want to thank the company and the team for letting me  to work with most gorgeous chipboards and hope to be back again some day.
