New Design Team Member Sonia Thomason

Hi everyone! 
Sonia Thomason here and I am beyond excited to be joining the incredible team at Imaginarium Designs! It's wonderful to be part of such a talented team and to be fortunate to work with such amazing products.
I love to work with chipboard as it's such a versatile product. There are so many mediums you can use to colour chipboard and with such a fabulous product range available at Imaginarium Designs, there's something for every style. Talking about styles, mine tends to be Shabby / Vintage with a touch of mixed media thrown in. I love the photo(s) to be the hero of my layouts and try to use my embellishments to highlight the photo.

My first layout is one of my oldest daughter Alex and I wanted to create a softness to my layout so I headed towards flourishes and hearts. All of my chipboard pieces have been spray painted white to achieve a smooth and even coverage of colour. 

'You Smile with your heart' 
 Imaginarium Designs products used: Denise's Fern Flourish, Nat's Hearts 1 and 'You smile with your heart' phrase

I loved the idea of mixing Denise's Fern Flourish with Nat's Hearts as the two pieces of chipboard have beautiful curves and flow to them that add a delicate touch to the page:

How amazing are the word phrases? I absolutely adore the font on this word phrase and it matches perfectly with my photo: 

I have a love of tags so you'll soon get to see plenty of them from me up on this blog! For these two tags I used one of my favourite looks - an aged gold finish on the chipboard with a vintage image:

'Journey' and 'Angel Wings' Tags
Imaginarium Designs products used: Oval Swirly Edge Frame and Skeletal Feather

The chipboard was all heat embossed using an aged gold embossing powder

I hope you've enjoyed my first creative time with Imaginarium! 
Thank you for taking the time to read along with this blog post and I hope to see you back here soon!
