Rust, Metallics and Chipboard with Tracey Fowler

Hi Everyone,

The weather here in Perth has been very cold and there doesn't seem to be any sign of Spring yet, so I can't think of a better way to spend my day other than creating in my "scrap room".

I have created 3 projects with ID chipboard and either used a metallic embossing powder or rusting paint to create different looks with the chipboard.

" The Boys"

I have used a crackle paint and stencil for the background and a water based  spray to create the background.  The ID Cogs, Phrase "The Boys" and Frame, I have used Prima Marketing Rust Pastes to give the chipboard a rusted look.  

" Beautiful"

This layout is taken of one of the gorgeous elephants at the Singapore Zoo.

I have once again used a stencil and texture paste to create some interest on the background of the page. I have then sprayed a water based ink over the background and flicked a
deeper colour over the page.

I have heat embossed the Nat's Squares, with a gold embossing powder and cut it in half to place under the photo.  I have used white gesso to paint the ID Chipboard title "Beautiful".

" Super Star"

I find making male cards difficult, but I wanted to set myself a mini challenge.
I have created a card for Father's Day which is early next month.

I have used both metallic embossing powder and rust paste on the ID Chipboard circles and title. I have used a white distress paint to cover the ID chipboard stars and letters.




Thanks for stopping by and seeing what we have been creating with Imaginarium Desgins Chipboard.
Happy Crafting


  1. Gorgeous!! I absolutely adore the "rusty" chippies!! I have so much fun playing with chipboard pieces because you can do so many things with them!! TFS!

  2. FABULOUS layouts and card Tracey!!!
    I confess that I have a soft spot in my heart for the overlapping circles and squares, I'm working on some cards for my Father at the moment (birthday and Father's Day) using lots of cogs/gears, so I'm feeling extra INSPIRED => THANK YOU for sharing :)
