February Projects - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

It's Karyn here and today I'm sharing some scrapbook pages and cards made using lots of gorgeous new Imaginarium Designs chipboard

Christmas time was so busy, then we went on holidays, so its been some time since I crafted. This meant that when I did have time last weekend my mind went blank and my mojo disappeared lol! So I went back to my roots and got out my water colours and went from there.
For my first project I chose my colour palate from the photo - and wanted to use pinks and browns. I used papers and tags from the Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane collection, and I used my Prima Watercolor Confections "Pastel Dreams".
I started by watercolouring using the "Painting with plastic" technique, then adding splats of each colour. This white cardstock was cut down to 11" x 11" then matted on 2 sheets of Magnolia Jane papers.
I matted my photo on a paper doilie and a tag from the Magnolia Jane collection and these were attached to the left side of my page.  
All of the chipboard was painted with the watercolour paints (pink and brown), then I applied some BoBunny glitter paste (rose gold) over the top for some sparkle! 
I painted the title in a brown watercolour paint for contrast and added some glitter paste along the bottom. 
Lastly I added some paper flowers, a date stamp and handwritten journalling.

Heart flourish and Flourish border - new designs!

Next I made two birthday cards using similar colours and techniques as the first scrapbook page. When possible I try and make some cards using similar colours, papers and embellishments as the scrapbook pages I make - this means I can quickly make some useful cards using leftovers from my scrapbook projects!
I used papers from the Heidi Swapp Magnolia Jane collection and Prima Watercolor Confections "Pastel Dreams".

I started by watercolouring using the "Painting with plastic" technique, then adding splats of each colour. This white cardstock was cut down to 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" then matted on Magnolia Jane papers then put on a 6" x 6" card base. 
All of the chipboard was painted with the watercolour paints, then I applied some BoBunny glitter paste (rose gold) over the top of the butterflies for some sparkle! 
I love this new Happy Birthday font - isn't it divine!! as is this background flourish - such a statement piece!

Lastly I have a grungy mixed media scrapbook page.
I created my background on a sheet of white cardstock, first using a selection of Dina Wakley acrylic paints (Evergreen, Cheddar, Black, Lemon, Elephant).
I used a spatula to swipe paint across my page. 
Then I added one of the new Imaginarium Designs stencils to my page using Whipped Spackle! 
I added some stamping across my page using a selection of my favourite background stamps.
I painted all of my chipboard black using the Dina Wakley paint. 
Here are some closeups of the finished page.

I added some torn strips of paper from the Pink Fresh Studio "Escape The Ordinary" collection underneath my photo and around the edge of my page. I also added velum and muslin in places. I 
I added some paper flowers to add pops of colour, and I outlined the cardstock with a black marker. 
 I love how this page turned out with the paint and the stencils and stamping !!
