August Imaginarium Designs Pages

Hello I'm just reposting my Imaginarium Designs blog post here.

I'm feeling super inspired and creatively recharged after spending the past weekend at a scrapbooking retreat. I created a heap of pages and of course used plenty of Imaginarium Chipboard on them.  So I have three pages to share with you today.

Gone But Not Forgotten
This first page is about remembering my grandparents and I've used the 'Gone But Not Forgotten' chipboard title painted red with glossy accented painted over the top.  I've included along with this page two corner pieces to frame my design. 

 Wine Girls
Wine Girls is my second fun page and I've used the chipboard phrase 'So Glad We Are Friends' as an extra embellishment.  The Tammy Flourish is used to border my photo's and then I've added some of Loolabelles Chevrons as directional pieces.

Too Glam To Give A Damn
My last page uses the Phillis Frame painted with Distress Paint to frame my centre photo.
A small script word and some of Nat's Hearts have helped to embellish my page.  I used Glossy Accents again painted over the chipboard to add a little shine to them. 

cheers Leonie

Kaisercraft June Challenge

I recently bought some of the June Daydreamer collection from Kaisercraft and decided to create a page for the Kaisercraft June challenge which is based on circles.
I started out roughly sketching a few circles on my cardstock and then adding some Kaisermists.
Using the pack of collectables and sticker sheet I added lots of circular elements to my page.  I also used a Kaisercraft die Christmas Wreath and cut some of these from the  black 'Stargaze' paper.
I finished off using some Kaisercraft epoxy stickers and some older Kaisercraft Droplets

thanks for stopping by,

Imaginarium June Projects, Challenge and Prizes

Hiya! I was up on the Imaginarium Designs blog over the weekend sharing the layouts I created for June.  Imaginarium is running a Challenge through out June with a $60 prize pack up for grabs.  All the details are HERE.


Hi everyone.  Leonie here today.
By now hopefully you've seen or heard
 about our June challenge with this fabulous moodboard.  I absolutely adore the bright beautiful colours on this mood board.  They are such happy colours.

When I set about creating my page for this challenge I had some Dina Wakley paint left over and so I made some extra backgrounds and then thought well I may as well use these for my monthly blog post.  
This is what I came up with, bit of a colour explosion - plus one other which you'll see late in the month. 


For this first page I used Nat's squares chipboard as a stencil to create the pattern on my background. Then I added the actual chipboard under my photo and overlayed it with my 'Reflections' title which I'd sprayed with white Gesso.  Keeping it simple I scattered some chipboard stars around the page which have been painted white and then sprayed with KaiserMists. 

'Cheeky Grin'

My second page started out with lots of random stencilling on the background.  The title pieces have been painted with the same colours as the background and the bubbles were painted first then I glued some chunky glitter on them.

'Now And Forever'

Lastly I have this multi photo page, each photo has been matted on several layers of B&W patterned papers.  The title piece is painted black as have the flourishes.  The flourishes also have some texture paste dabbed on them.

Thanks for stopping by the Imaginarium Designs Blog I hope you're inspired to take part in our challenge this month.  All the details on how to enter are HERE
