Scrapbooking Memories Blog Hop/Imaginarium Designs


Happy Australia Day!!!!

Australians all let us rejoice for we are young & freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. (u guys r so lucky u can't hear me sing!!)

Imaginarium Designs are so excited to be part of the Scrapbooking Memories Blog Hop

Some of the Aussie Imaginarium Designs DT girls have posted some extra inspiration for you!

Here is a new page I have created using Imaginarium Designs Chippies

Imaginarium Designs Swirly Frame 3"X2" IDFR0004
Imaginarium Design Alphas Capital Letters IDAUC0001

To alter the frame I first gave a coat of gesso, then painted using Shimmerz Blingz Winter Green. I then applied impasto to the tips of the spade shapes on the frame. Once dry I dabbed some Shimmerz Blingz in Spiced Cider on the tips.
The letters were also given a coat of gesso. I then covered each letter in impasto making sure that the application was rough so that it gave a real textured look. Once dry I painted the letters with yellow acrylic paint. When the paint dried I used the Shimmers Blingz Winter Green over the top.

Imaginarium Designs Four Circles Border IDB0003

Apply a base coat of gesso. The paint with acrylic yellow paint. Once the paint dried I used Shimmerz in Bunny over the top to brighten the yellow & give it a nice shine. I then used  Shimmerz Blingz in Spiced Cider with a fine paint brush & randomly followed the lines on the border. I was inspired by the 2tone paper colour & wanted to try & recreate that with the chipboard colour.
