April is the Month of Green

Hi everyone
Hoping you have all had a great Easter and not over indulged on chocolate like I no doubt have. We always camp on the Easter long weekend so for all of you that enjoy it as much as I do I hope you have been able to enjoy 'scamping' as I do (Scrapbooking whilst camping).
It's my turn to share my monthly creations using our amazing Imaginarium Designs Products. This month our theme is green so I have tried to have a touch of green in my share today.

The first page I'd like to share is one of my handsome grandson, he loves riding bikes and posing for photos for his Nan.

I used acrylic paints from Dina Wakley to give the chipboard a mix of soft and vibrant colours with the brown gave the grungy boy playing look. I used the heart chipboard piece as a stamp and a off cut over the red arrows. The background was built up with stamping, paint writing and using one of our new stencils.

My second page is one of my glass ball photography pieces. I took this photo whilst camping and saw the light that was coming from the solar lights and it inspired me.

The background in this one is about the white space as much as the green Lindy's Stamp Gang vibrant powders which I used with water to cover the area as well with a sponge over a circle stencil. I used black Archival ink to stamp a range of stamps and the circle stencil behind the photo. The chipboard was covered with Versa ink in several colours.

My third project is cardboard box I brought from Spotlight and thought would make a beautiful tricket box. 

This little box was first sealed with black gesso before adding layers of chipboard, resin embellishments, a glass bottle and a brass keys. I added layers of several different colour metallic waxes to bring out the depth and character.

I really enjoyed making these latest creations and I hope they have inspired you to take on the challenge of thinking outside the box or trying some new techniques or maybe working with white space. See you next month.
