May 2017



 

We love camping and don't have to have an excuse to jump in the car and hook on the camper and head off to enjoy the open spaces.

 

The items I used included:

  • Kraft Paper Stock: Plain and Patterned

  • Kraft paper tag

  • White Gesso

  • Tim Holtz Stencil 'Treads'

  • Tim Holtz Alterations Die 'Honeycomb'

  • Kaisercraft Clear stamp 'Sketchy'

  • Ranger Distress Oxide Ink 'Vintage Photo'

  • Hessian

  •  Magenta Acrylic Paint

  • Black Wire Thread

  •  Staz On Black Ink

  • Imaginarium Designs Chipboard:

Honeycomb 6x6 IDS0054

Loolobelle's nested hexagons IDD0017

Just Kidding Oops oh yeah blah blah IDW0098



Got the travel bug IDP0206


I covered the hexagons shapes with the patterned kraft paper and painted the words with the Magenta acrylic paint. 

The Distress oxide was used with the Treads stencil over the white gesso with StazOn used to stamp with the 'Sketchy' background stamp. 

I used my Big Shot Sizzix Cutting Machine and the Tim Holtz Alterations Die 'Honeycomb' to cut the photo into a puzzle of sorts. I glued the pieces onto another piece of Kraft paper to strengthen the photo as well as stopping it from falling into pieces again. I kept some pieces out and cut the Kraft paper out to give it a more 3D look.

Thanks for popping over and checking out my lastest creation. So how about it???.... Take on the challenge and have some fun.......I look forward to seeing the creations that you design to enter into this creative challenge over at Kraft+.

Kraft + swatch it up challenge- April 17

Hello everyone today I'd love to share one of the designs I've created using the new 'Believe' kit over at Scrappy Chat Designs for the Kraft+ swatch it up Challenge.

  This is favourite kit so far. It was fun thinking of ways to incorporate the paint swatches with the wonderful papers in the kit. I love the papers because of their vibrancy yet delicate colours with the designs lending themselves to so many possibilities. I was able to use the stencil with both Distress Oxide ink pad from Rangers and white gesso finding the ink was the perfect colour to stencil with, edge, distress or highlight the white wood grain card stock.

I had lot of fun making the pages I created and creating the videos and instructions in this kit for you to try.

"All that Awesome" -Scrappy Chat Designs.

Hello Scrappy Chat Friends Sandi here with you today to share a layout I have created using the AWESOME "Be You" kit.

 

I enjoyed being able to explore some ideas to scrap my grandson using this fantastic masculine paper selection. The great variety of panels provides you with so many options of what you can do with this kit. You will have plenty of leftovers that you will be able to use to create so many more wonderful projects.

I have had fun working with the included stencil, cogs and stickers with the exclusive Grey Color Crush powder and Dina Wakley Acrylic paint to create a soft background with a layered finish.

Imaginarium Designs March Inspiration.


Hi everyone, Sandi here back to share with you all what I've been having fun creating using our wonderful Imaginarium Design Chipboard.

My first project piece is my 'Autumn' inspired tag.
I collect cardboard boxes and use it for cutting out my tags and to lift embellishments and photos on my layouts to provide depth to my creations. I apply mixed media, assorted papers and embellishments in conjunction with 'Lindys Stamp Gang' inks and sprays to decorate my cardboard tags. The chippie was sprayed with white gesso and then painted with Lindy Stamp Gang inks and the butterfly then lightly embossed as well.





  Imagination Design chipboard I used on this project include:


IDT0014 4 small butterflies


Isobel lower case IDA0010
Madison flourish IDFL0019


 My second project was created in my handmade journal book.
Using 'Lindys Stamp Gang' sprays, black watercolour pencil and book pages with a mix of Imaginarium Alphabet chippie.
I glued  the chipboard Alpha mix and then covered each piece with torn book pages using matte transparent media. When dry I sprayed ink into a palette and using a spray bottle filled with water and a large water loaded brush  added the spray ink onto the page in layers drying in between.
The 2 page journal page was segmented using a black watercolour pencil and shading the lines with water giving them the look of eight sections.
 





Imagination Design chipboard I used on this project include:

Isobel lower case IDA0010

Lower case (18 on a card) IDALC0001A

code IDW0094 #instagram etc.

My last creation is a layout celebrating the time I love sharing with my children, a day out shopping and having  time to sit, chat and a coffee together.
I used 'Lindy Stamp Gang' inks watered down on the outer plastic sleeve that the chipboard is packaged in. I chose a large sleeve as I wanted to make circles that resembled coffee cup base stains. 
With a mix of acrylic paints and Lindy's I was able to match the colours and pattern from the paper to the chevrons arrow chipboard pieces.





Imagination Design chipboard I used on this project include:

Loolabelles Chevrons 1 IDDL0020

IDD0046 Loolabells's callours 4 in a board
My favourite travel photos IDW0061


Thanks for visiting and I hope we have inspired you to try out some new ideas and create with our amazing Imaginarium Design Chipboard.
 Hope to see you again soon.

Imaginarium Designs February Inspiration


Hi everyone, great to have you drop by to check out my latest creations for Imaginarium Designs Chipboard. I've created 3 very different designs to show the you don't need to do 12"x12" layouts to use this amazing product.

 

The first project I made was a tag, something special to give one of your friends or family members.




I kept the techniques simple so they were both features and blended with the background not to take away from the stenciling and inking. The 'Butterfly' was sprayed with White Gesso Spray with the 'Bubbles' and 'Imagine' being inked with Lindy's Stamp Gang spray ink, covered with 'Glossy Accents' and splatted with white ink. One of the 'Arrows' were sprayed with White Gesso with the 2 smaller 'Arrows' being brush painted with a combo of Lindy's spray ink colours before covering it with a coat of 'Glossy Accents'.





Imagine believe IDW0079


IDT0014 4 small butterflies
Nats bubbles Med IDD0037


Loolabelles Love Arrows IDDL0023



My second creation was a Journal page where I experimented with Lindy's Stamp gang ink sprays, water and stenciling.




The chipboard was used to give depth to this double page with the raw 'Honeycomb' and 'Wrought Iron' was given a coat of colour. The 'Nested Hexagons' were painted with Blue and green Flat Pabio Lindy's spray. The hexagon inserts from the 'Honeycomb' I covered with Kaisercraft papers and inserted some back into the gaps.

Loolobelle's nested hexagons IDD0017



The final project I made was a wall hanging, I made one for Christmas and love it so much I thought I'd make another to hang all year round.





The hanging was constructed on hessian which I'd experimented with homemade eco dying. Over a few weeks as I walked past it in my craft room I randomly splattered it with a variety of inks that I was putting back from my creating time. The 'Clock with no face' chipboard piece was covered with Finnabair's rust pastes. Look out for how I did this in coming months at the Imaginarium Design blog. The 'NEW Lamp/sign post' was painted with Dylusions ink and the 'Arrow' was sprayed with White Gesso.
