Sandi S November creations

Hi everyone, Wow where is the year going!!!! Time is flying and it's my turn to share with you again my creations with our wonderful Imagination Designs Chipboard.

My first piece is my October ID Journal page. This is a page is of my beautiful grandchildren using old fashioned tin can phones in a photo shoot for their great grandpa who was entering a photo competition. 

The background was created using a variety of white, blue and green acrylic paints, stamping in gold acrylic and black StazOn, doodling done with a whiteout pen and black acrylic drawing mix in a fineline applicator bottle. The chipboard chosen was perfect to reflect the fun conversation that was happening between my grandchildren. Lots of laughter and Blah Blah and joking around. The arrows were coated in a red acrylic paint for the pop factor and the conversation words in black gesso.

I suddenly realised I hadn't made a card for my nephew for his birthday and my mum was dropping by in 40 mins to pick one up to take to Adelaide...oh oh..

Quick grab the card stock( sprinkled with 2 Lindy's Stamp Gang magical shakers colours and water spray, stamped with Staz On ink, some drawing acrylic paint and pieces of chippie: cogs (cover with Distress ink), a little boy, arrows ( coated with Prima acrylic paint and wax) and Happy birthday (painted with black gess). And of course a heat gun (life saver) and 30mins later a card signed and placed in an envelope with some money was handed to mum as she dropped by with 10mins to spare. YAY!!

I left my favourite creation for the last share of today. I have been inspired by several artists over the last few years including our own Sue Smyth on the Imaginarium Design Team who has been creating amazing 3D book covers and canvas's. I have been saying I'm going to give it a go for what seems forever. So here is my first attempt and I must admit I'm wrapped with how it have come together.

I glued all the chipboard pieces, small frame, resin bits and bobs and metal embellishments I could find onto the book cover, taking my time to explore and experiment in their placement. I then covered them with black gesso and then when dry I added layers of colour with combinations of Prima wax, paints and powders, stamping script writing with StazOn black.

Thanks for popping over to Imaginarium Designs and checking out my latest pieces of art and hope it has inspired your to explore some new ideas such as exploring new techniques and products in journals, making cards and taking the big step to try something that you have always wanted to try and were unsure about. Go for it it's very rewarding.

October Shares - With Karyn Schultz!

Hi Imaginarium Designs lovelies!!

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

I created these page along with 4 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 this first 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 :) 
Imaginarium Designs chipboard I've used includes 

Cool Super Brave : code IDW0077
# words : code IDW0094
Lous heart shapes: Code IDD0070
 Lous frame and bars 8inch : code IDD0053
Loolabelles chevrons #2: Code IDDL0022
Hear me roar : code IDP0095

For this next project 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.

Hi everyone, Miriam here with a layout for this month using
a beautiful photo I took on a recent house boat holiday.
It was early morning and very still. I found Lindy's sprays just perfect
for the colour combination.

                                                     Cheers until next time.
