Imaginarium Designs

Hi there!
Today I`m sharing with you my first official projects created for Imaginarium Designs. Even though I`m using chippies on almost every layout I create I designed these projects especially for Imaginarium Designs Blog.
On the photo is my daughter Leanne (right) and a friend of hers Kiki (left). Kiki is a nanny child of a friend of mine - Susan.
Chipboard I used here:
  • Frame (IDFR0001)  ***I used Distress Embossing Ink and SeaFoam White embossing powder.
  • Birdcage (IDS0009) ***For the birdcage I used simply Glimmer Mist.
  • Butterfly (IDS0002) ***I used a paint brush and I applied 4 different colors paint. Two Glimmer Glam and Two Glimmer Mist.
  • Word "Friends" (IDW0023) ***I applied Distress Embossing ink and SeaFoam White embossing powder. Then I added three different colors of Glimmer paint.
  • Long Swirly (IDFL0011) ***Originally the Swirls were ONE whole long piece of chipboard but I decided to cut it in 4 parts and to use it as small embellishments to my flowers. It was treated with embossing ink, embossing powder and paint as well.
Pattern papers I used here:

And now my altered project. It`s a cheap bird-house (1.99 euro) I bought from a Dutch store ("Kruidvat"). It`s not the usual square bird house but it`s a flat one with a whole in the middle. When I saw it I knew immediately what I`d do with it ;-) use a Clock chippie in the middle and decorate it with beautiful papers and gorgeous flowers.
And Voila....this is the result......

Chipboard I used here:
  • Clock (IDS0006) ***I inked the clock with Color Box ink "Old Rose" and I added Ultra thick embossing enamel. Then I used a heat tool to melt it.
  • Words "Best Wishes" (IDW0008) ***I inked the phrase "Best Wishes" with Color Box ink "Old Rose" and I added Ultra thick embossing enamel. Then I used a heat tool to melt it.
  • Girl`s silhouette (IDS0023) *** The silhouette was treated with Distress Embossing Ink and SeaFoam White embossing powder.
