June Black and White Colour Challenge - With Imaginarium Designs!

The June Colour of the month at Imaginarium Designs chipboard is "Black and White"!!! We would love for you to join in the challenge and create a project using Imaginarium Designs chipboard that is inspired by the colours back and white then send a photo to Jane at sales@imaginariumdesigns.net.au (before 24th June)  and you will be in the running to win a fabulous chipboard prize pack!!

I've created a scrapbook page for this challenge, and I've kept my whole project Black and White only. I've used a photo of me taken in the snow - it definitely was a Magical Moment!
I started with a sheet of white cardstock and swiped black Dylusions paint across in places.
Next I added strips of  paper from the Paper House Productions "ColorWays Noir collection". At this stage I stuck my photo down and then added embellishments around it. 
I coloured my chipboard firstly with a black marker then added a coat of glossy accents. 
Here are a few closeups. I added parts of the chipboard boarder on either side of my photo, then added some flowers and flair.
 
 
In the bottom left corner I added a few flowers and some word stickers from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology small talk sticker book.

Lastly I added some splatters of black paint.

Hello Card - With Jillibean Soup!

Hi Lovelies!!

This month I'm a Guest Designer over at Jillibean Soup!! So Exciting!!

I've created a range of projects using the the Bohemian Brew collection. This last project is a card - "Hello".
I love love love the coordinating stamp set in the Bohemian Brew collection. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to make a feature of the vases. I love that there were 3 different shaped vases. I played around with just stamping them and having no colour, through to multiple colours, through to all the same colours. I stamped them onto white cardstock using black Archival ink then used watercolor markers and a watercolour brush to colour them. I kept it simple and tried to add a bit of shading. I then fussy cut to use on my card.  
I've used a 6x6 card blank then adhered a 5¾x5¾ piece of "Unity" paper (with distressed edges). 

Next I added a piece of "Love" paper - this was an offcut so I wasnt particular with the size. Actually the "Love" paper is my most favourite - I think because of the colour. I need to buy some more!! 

Then I added a 4x3 piece of "Bite Size bits". I had actually cut out all the cards on this paper and the reverse side of one of the cards was perfect for this card.
Next I added a "Pea Pod Part" strip and my stamped vases.

Lastly I added more die cuts and a "soup label sticker".

Happy Day Card - With Jillibean Soup!

Hi Lovelies!!

This month I'm a Guest Designer over at Jillibean Soup!! So Exciting!!

I've created a range of projects using the the Bohemian Brew collection. This project is a card - "Happy Day".
I mainly scrapbook but I love to make cards with offcuts of papers. I try and make the cards straight after I've made a scrapbook page and often use similar designs and techniques.

For this card I've started with a 6x6 card blank then taken a piece of 5¼x5¼ white cardstock and used a "painting with plastic" technique to create a watercolor background using watercolor pan paints.
When dry I distressed the edges and adhered it to a 5¾x5¾ piece of "Love" paper (also with distressed edges), then to the card base.

I added a felt flower as a feature of the card, then added flower and heart "pea pod parts" as well as alphas from the "Letter die cuts" pkt and the "happy" soup label  sticker.

Adventure - With Jillibean Soup!

 Hi Lovelies!!

This month I'm a Guest Designer over at Jillibean Soup!! So Exciting!!

I've created a range of projects using the the Bohemian Brew collection. Todays project is a Scrapbook page - "Adventure". I love the fun and bright colours and retro designs of the Bohemian Brew collection - perfect for documenting family life such as this photo of me bike riding.
For this scrapbook page I've started with a piece of 12x12 white cardstock and used a "painting with plastic" technique to create a watercolor background using watercolor pan paints. 
I used the flower from the stamp set and a "2-tone stamping" technique to stamp some yellow/orange flower images (see stamping image) which were then fussy cut. I also stamped other images in different coordinating colours then fussy-cut them out.
When dry I adhered a 4" strip of Bohemian Brew "Peace" patterned paper and a ½" strip of "Content" to the top of the painted background. And another ½"strip of "content" to the bottom of the page.

My photo is 3x4 including a white border. I also cut out 2 cards from the "Bite size bits" paper that were the same size.
Above my photo I've clustered a stamped image, diecuts, word stickers and adhesive sequins - I love the combination of different elements.

On the bottom left of my photo/card row I've included a similar cluster, this time using the 2-toned stamped flower image. This is a fun technique to use on word stamps too.
Under the photo I have added a variety of word diecuts and stickers - I love using a variety of shapes, colours  and fonts.
Lastly in the bottom right of the page I added more diecuts, adhesive backed sequins, and tiny word stickers.
