Imaginarium Designs Chipboard July Creations

Hi everyone, Wow how fast is the year going it's hard to believe we are in the second part of the year already. It's been a busy time for us all and I hope you have been able to get into your craft areas and have fun creating your own pieces of art. I'd love to share with you what I've been creating lately.

My first creation was a layout with a sweet feminine feel.I used a layer of white gesso to soften the paper and then sprayed some Lindy's Stamp Gang ink sprays. 



I used Flourishes were covered with Versa ink 'Indigo' and title with 'Evergreen'. The bike was covered with a combo of a deep crimson and black acrylic paint. I used the 'Evergreen' to also cover the frame before covering it with Metallic Melts embossing powder. The small love heart was painted with Dina Wakley Scribble sticks and water.



 Imaginarium Design chipboard used included:


Bicycle small IDT0018
Inspire create IDW0092
Edith Frame IDT0038
IDW0072 Beautiful delight wonderful in board sml
Merilee variation flourish IDFL0032
Nats hearts 1 IDD0042

My second layout is a simple but striking page of my scrapping buddy Fiona Paltridge and myself ; birds of a feather we are. I couldn't wait to use her new stunning stamp range to do this page stamping the feather stamp onto white 12x12 cardstock with StazOn and then tearing some of the cardstock off to make a strip to be placed on the red. I then used Dina Wakley scribble sticks and lots of water to paint over the feather layering the colour until happy.



The cut the frame into 2 pieces and then covered it with Verra Ink 'Black' and the feather in 'Silver'.
The selfie chipboard was covered in spray gesso.

My last share is my latest addition my Imaginarium Journal book. 'Travel Destination'. We regularly go to camping shows and at the Adelaide one last year we came across a caravan through the ages display. This one took my eye so cute.



The chipboard titles were painted with red Dina Wakley scribble sticks with the frame painted in black acrylic paint. The banner was covered with Kaisercraft 6x6 paper and cut out after glue was dry with the edges scribbled around with a fine Sharpie pen.

My latest creations for Imaginarium Designs Chipboard DT.

Hi everyone Sandi here to share with you my latest creations using Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.

My first is another journal page in my Design Team Journal, this is where I experiment with different inks, styles and IDChipboard.

 


I used Lindy's Stamp Gang inks to layer different colours onto both the background and chipboard the chipboard was firstly coating them with a thin coat of gesso to bring out the bright colours of the ink. The stamps are from All&Create Limited Edition stamps by Fiona Paltridge and Tracy Evans.



I used the following chipboard:

Imagine believe IDW0079
IDW0083 love grow hello

4 circle border IDB0003
Loolabelles Chevrons 1 IDDL0020
IDD0033 Denises George flourish 2

IDA009 Isobel Uppercase

IDALC0001 Isobel lowercase

My second creation is my favourite for the month and reflects my love of nature. 



This layout background was created using Lindy's Stamp Gang spray inks, my new Fiona Paltridge stamps from All&Create Limited Edition stamp sets and Dina Wakley Scribble sticks. The arrow chipboard I used was covered with Silver Vera Color ink and then embosssed with Tinby Metallic Melts. The piechart chipboard was coated with the blue Lindy's spray which I had left to dry out considerably in a palette to concentrate the colour and make it thicker to paint with.



Here is the chipboard I used:

Loolabelle's nested Arrows IDDL0018
Loolobelle's Piechart and heart embellishments48 IDD0046
Together is a beautiful place to be IDP0211


My last share is a birthday card I have made for a special friend. It's a little different to what I normally would do for a card but thought I'd do something a bit different for her because 'We all are a little mad in here' is a bit of fun that she would relate to.



Again I used Lindy's Stamp gang Magicals powders both on the background and chipboard, I sprinkled some onto my craft mat and sprayed some water on it and rubbed the heart chipboard into it. The Happy birthday was sponged with black gesso and the hash circle was painted with white gesso to give texture. My stamps were from All&Create LE by Olga Heldmein


The chipboard used included:

IDDL0015 Lous heart shapes
Loolabelles circular cross hatch IDD0025
Happy birthday for cards 4 per board IDP0079

Thanks so much for dropping by I hope I have been able to inspire you to explore how you can incorporate Imaginarium Design chipboard into you future layouts and take on the challenge to enter our current challenge on our Imaginarium Designs Chipboard blog, Facebook and Instagram pages.

Imaginarium Designs May Share.

Hi everyone, Hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day and had a very relaxing day. I'm back this month to share some of the pieces that I created recently.

My first piece was produced for the amazing Kraft+ Out of the Box Challenge which Imaginarium Designs were sponsoring this month. The challenge was to not use square or rectangular photos on a Kraft paper stock background.
 

 I used a honeycomb die from Tim Holtz to cut out the photo and covered the hexagon shapes out of the Honeycomb chipboard and Loolabelles' nested hexagons to compliment the photo shape. The title 'Got the travel bug' and 'oh yeah' were painted with acrylic paint.
