Love - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page I made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.

I created this page along with 5 others recently where I limited myself to the CVS You Rock collection. I also wanted to create a page of mostly patterned paper and minimal mixed media elements.
I trimmed my white cardstock down by 1cm on each side and attached it to a piece of patterned paper. I cut a 10"x10" square out of the middle of the backing patterned paper (leaving a border) to use on other projects. I then added strips of different patterned paper under my photo - such a cool effect.
I used a teal ink pad to partially ink the chipboard - a delicate ombre effect!
I wanted to add a series of chipboard words on my page describing the photo - I love the range that ID has. Lastly I added some black paint splatters and enamel shapes.

Hear Me Roar - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I'm sharing a scrapbook page I made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard.

I created this page along with 5 others when I sat down to make projects for my October DT commitments. I limited myself to the CVS You Rock collection, a selection of Colour Blast products and ID chipboard and went from there. If you are ever in a creative rut then my first suggestion is to limit your supplies so you are not overwhelmed with choice :) 

I started my background with a 12x12 stencil (TCW Tile Mania) and 3 different coloured Colour Blast colour pastes (Deep water, sunshine and dusty charcoal). Then I sprayed and splattered Deep Water and Sunshine shimmer sprays - concentrating on the area under my photo placement and in the bottom left corner.
This stencil is definitely my new favorite. I loved the background so I kept the rest of the page minimal with chipboard, papers and embellishments.
I used a teal ink pad to partially ink the chipboard - I love this ombre effect! I also added some teal glitter paste on part of the chipboard title. 
I used a black paint pen to paint the frame and bars chipboard - so quick and easy!  
A few paper flowers add a feminine touch :)

Rocking My Travellers Notebook - With Scrapping Clearly!

Today I have some pages in my Websters Pages Travellers Notebook to share with you made using the Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection available in the  Scrapping Clearly Store.

Travellers Notebooks are quite popular at the moment. I love their small portable size and that there is less formality than a scrapbook page. I also love using little photos on the pages!

I created these pages after I finished creating 4 scrapbook pages with the same paper collection. It was a great way to use up paper offcuts :)
I added paper strips to the edges of each of the TN pages and washi strips under the photo and title. I then added stickers, enamel shapes and splatters of watercolour pan paints, as well as journalling. 
A similar process was used to create these next pages - adding lots of paper offcuts, rubber charms, enamel shapes and paint splatters. 
Have you joined the Travellers Notebook club yet?? 
Scrapping Clearly products I've used include 

Cocoa Vanilla Studio "You Rock" collection (12x12 papers, washi strips, flair, wood veneer, sticker sheet, enamel shapes, rubber charms) 
Heidi Swapp roller date stamp 
Watercolor Pan Paints
Ranger Archival ink pad, black
Websters Pages Color Crush Travellers Notebook Inserts

Mini Canvas Nameplates - With Imaginarium Designs!

Today I'm sharing 2 mini canvas nameplates made using lots of gorgeous Imaginarium Designs chipboard. The theme for the DT this month is "canvas". I dont often do canvas projects but I had these small canvas boards (10cmx10cm) and wanted to try some mini creations :)

Here are some step by stem photos of my creative process. I started by selecting the chipboard I wanted to use on each canvas and gluing it down. Then I applied white gesso over the entire canvas.
Next I mixed a bit of each of my Lindy's "Drop Dead Diva" Magicals into a palate and added water - so I could apply to my canvas with a brush. I applied with a brush first to get the overall effects I was after then I also added some Magicals direct to the canvas in places. 
Here is the finished first step with the painting. Once this had dried I added some flowers and painted these as well.
Once it was all dry again I added some stamping and used a black gelato to define the edges. I also added some black and white paint splatters with my Posca paint pens (I wish i hadn't done this actually!!). 

Here are some photos of the finished canvases!
