World Traveller - With Imaginarium Designs!

The April Colour of the month at Imaginarium Designs chipboard is "GREEN". We would love for you to join in the challenge and create a project using the colour green then send a photo to Jane at by 23rd April 2018 and you will be in the running to win a fabulous chipboard prize pack!! 

I've created a scrapbook page for this challenge where I've done some stash busting and found then used old supplies I've been hoarding!!
I started by using white cardstock and used a spatula to swipe different shades of green paint (Dylusions paints) across my page.
Once this had thoroughly dried (which did take some time as the paint was thick in places) I started work on my page. I took a chevron bag and tore a large piece off to mat my photo on. Then I added some gauze, tags, sequin pocket, flowers and flair. Finally I added some chipboard - I left it raw for this project, and I love this look on the page!  
How cool is this title! Jane recently send us each a mystery pack of chipboard and I received a few titles I hadnt previously seen - let me tell you there are so many to choose from and its a quick and fabulous way to add a title to your page! 
In the top left and bottom right I added these strips of chipboard from Lous frame and bars I love the look of these bars!
In the bottom right I added a journalling tag, handwritten journalling, paint splats, and some fun crosses.

Love Life - With Scrapping Clearly!

Hi Lovelies!!

Have you seen all of the fabulous new papers available in the Scrapping Clearly Store? I've fallen in love with all of the Ella and Viv papers and the Paper Arts papers. They are quite different to the papers I'm usually attracted too because they have a mixed media look. Check them out - I'm sure you will find some (or all lol) in your shopping basket just like I did!!

I used the Ella and Viv Graffiti red white and blue paper on this scrapbook page.
I started by adding torn strips of book paper (an old dictionary actually) and muslin in sections of my page - using gel medium. Then I added some stencilling corn cob 6x6 with white gesso and Dylusions old school numbers stencil and black DWM paint.

Then I added some stamping using Carabelle Studio Scribbles in my journal stamp set and various coloured ink pads.
I added some chipboard painted with black gesso and paper flowers, along with Mambi chipboard stickers and Tim Holtz Ideaology small talk word stickers

Lastly I added some splatters of blue, red and black paint from Prima Watercolor confections - the classics.
Here are some closeups. I love how I could build extra layers on the paper yet it still felt cohesive. 
How cool are these Mambi chipboard stickers - my new favs! 
I love the depth of colour and vibrancy that shows in the splatters of blue, red and black paint from Prima Watercolor confections - the Classics

Adventure - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I have another Scrapbook page to share made using the amazing 7 Dots Paint Chips paper collection along with lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.
As soon as I saw the sheet of 7 Dots "Aquamarine" paper I knew I wanted to incorporate a Peacock feather (One my daughter recently found at a friends house). I also had the perfect photo taken on our recent holiday to Hawaii :)

In keeping with the feather theme I selected a feather stencil and chipboard all from Imaginarium Designs and went from there. I applied 3 different colours of Colour Blast paste (Stormy, Apple and Deep water) through my stencil - these pastes are just amazing as is the stencil!! 
I did 2 copies of the stencil - making sure to let each dry and wash the stencil properly between each. 

I coloured my chipboard with Glimmer Glaze in a variety of colours - allowing the colours to blend together while they were still wet.  
My photo is matted on book paper, some Tim Holtz Tissue paper and piece of 7 Dots Paint Chips "Underpaper".
I kept embellishments minimal to allow the feather and chipboard to shine! 
How beautiful is this feather!!

Love You - With Imaginarium Designs!

Recently I purchased the amazing 7 Dots Paint Chips paper collection. I am in love with these papers - I wish I had bought 2 of each!!

I used a sheet of the "Razzleberry" paper to make this scrapbook page along with lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.
I've also followed the 7 Dots Studio April challenge which has the following moodboard - arent those colours amazing!!

I started with the sheet of 7 Dots Paint Chips Razzleberry paper and added Colour Blast paste (Stormy Weather) through a stencil (Corn cob etching). When this was dry I added stamping of AallandCreate #10 stamp set with pink and black archival inkpads.  
Next I added archival inks through a stencil (7 Dots Homegrown Floral).   
My photo is matted on a piece of 7 Dots Paint Chips "Underpaper", some Tim Holtz Tissue paper and a torn piece of book paper.

All of my chipboard has been coloured with Glimmer Glaze in different colour shades - giving an ombre effect - arent the flowers so delicate and pretty!
After completing my page I added paint splats in pink and black using Prima Watercolor Confections - Originals (my new fav watercolour paint set).  
In the top left corner I added paper into a tag shape, a tag, torn book paper (actually an old dictionary page), sewing thread and chipboard alphas - also coloured with Glimmer Glaze.  
I printed out some journalling on copy paper then painted it with Colour Blast shimmer spray (Lovely Lilac) then cut out each line and attached to my page.
More torn book paper, tissue paper, thread and paint splats have been added in the bottom right corner - I love how vibrant the paint splatters are!
