My Little Man ~Imaginarium Designs~

Hi there!
I hope everybody is doing well....just like me :-))))))
This is a layout I created for Imaginarium Designs using their absolutely AWESOME chipboard!


{IDS 0030} Steam Punk Clock 
{IDS 0021} Fence/Rail track
{IDP 0003} My Little Man

{Nature Garden} collection

  • The chippie was first painted with gesso. When it was dry I used brown crackle paint from Rangers. Love the effect that when the brown paint crackles the whit epos up.
  • Because I wanted to have some "movement" on my page I decided to cut the clock in two parts and place them on the left/right side of the photo

  • I cut separately all three words from this phrase. 
  • "My little" was painted with gesso and then with Glimmer Glam. When it was dry I used sand paper to remove the glitter and give more vintage look.
  • The word "man" was also treated in the same way but this time I used black "Glimmer Glam".

  • The Fence was also painted initially with gesso and once it was dry I painted it with green crackle paint from Rangers.

  • The mini mask "chicken wire" was used like a "stamp".
  • I sprayed Glimmer Mist on a piece of aluminum folio. Dipped the mask in the paint and then stamped on the paper.
  • Then I used a black fine liner to outline the chicken wire :-)

Have a beautiful day!
Thank you for your visit :-)
