Boys, Boys Boys...ID Theme Post

Good Morning ....

This month the ID team have been creating a "Masculine themed" layouts to share with you.

Here are a few more creations from the ID team.

First up is Solange's Fabulous page.

This page is a little different of my style, but I tried to make a masculine page using few elements. I glued all of the chipboards on the page and I covered them with acrylic gesso to integrate them on the paper. I used blue spray on the chipboards.

Sonia has created a stunning vintage masculine layout.

Sonia used an aged bronze embossing powder on her chipboard to add to the vintage style of her layout. A little bit of dark brown ink added to the edges of the chipboard distresses it even more. Adding a clear sticker or rub on with your chipboard phrases adds in a darker pop of colour and helps bring the layout together. Imaginarium products used Denise's George Flourish IDD0032, Nat's Hearts IDD0042 and 'Love this' phrase IDP0199

Leonie has created this awesome masculine page.

For her masculine themed project Leonie has created a scrapbook page about some of her Sons sporting adventures. She has used the "Believe In Your Dreams' tilte piece inked black to tie in with the black matting on her photo's. As a statement embellishment she has added 3 of 'Nat's Pin Wheels' painted yellow with black inked edges. A flair button added to the centre of one of the chipboard pin wheels adds a little pop of red to her page.

Last up is Tracey. She has created this layout using ID circles heat embossed in yellow and chevrons  also heat embossed.

Tracey has used a stencil and texture paste on the background to help soften the white cardstock and patterned paper along with adding splatters of yellow and blue ink over the layout. The ID chipboard title has been coloured with a black stamp pad which has given the shabby feel.

Thanks ladies for sharing your masculine pages.

Off the page with Tracey

Hi Everyone,

Today I have three off the page projects to share with you. One of my projects has been inspired from our very own Natalie May.  Nat was sharing her tips/tricks at some classes that she taught in Perth earlier in the year and one of those ideas was a journal to keep all your samples of sprays, inks, embossing powders etc. I decided that it was time that I started one of these journal myself and have decorated the front of the journal

"Love Art" Journal Cover

I have heat embossed the ID Chipboard frame in a antique white and coloured the ID dragonfly with Distress crayons and dry brushed with white gesso.

Once again I have used antique white embossing powder on the ID chipboard heart and used distress crayon and dry brushed the words with white gesso.

"Dream Journal"

My second project for the month is a double journal page using Prima Marketing Colour bloom sprays, Lindy's Magical powders, stencils, stamps, embossing powder and texture paste and ID chipboard.

 I have heat embossed the ID Chipboard butterfly in antique gold and the ID chipboard in black embossing powder with a hint of glitter.

" Vintage Rose ATC's"

My finial project to share with you this month is a set of  3 ATC's with a vintage feel.

I have heat embossed the ID Chipboard dress form in aged antique white embossing powder and adhered to the ATC with foam tape. I love how this embossing powder has given the dress form so much beautiful texture.

I have used the same embossing powder on the ID dragonfly and flourish.

Thanks for stopping by, Happy scrapping.

Guest Designer ... Emma Zappone

Hi there
I hope that you are all having a wonderful day - today I'm introducing another FABULOUS Guest Designer ... Meet Emma Zappone

Hi I'm Emma, I live in the Clare Valley of gorgeous South Australia with my hubby and 2 boys.
I've been scrapping for well over 10 years now and still totally in love with it! 
I have tried many styles and techniques over the years and feel happy with how much I've 'progressed' in my designs. It's really not just glue and paper it's truly ART. 😉 
My fave go to items would have to be chipboard, flairs, mists, inks, stamps and if I keep going I'll name everything in the scrapbook industry lol!! 
I get a real buzz out of scrapping and hopefully inspiring others. I wish to thank Imaginarium Designs for the opportunity to guest for them and their awesome products.

Hi everyone! 
I'm super excited to be here as a guest designer with you all! 
Imaginarium Designs chipboard is certainly amazing to look at and create with. So very versatile. Today's share is.....

I really wanted the title to stand out, so I kept the rest simple. 
I started by just swiping gesso under the location of where my pic was going. I then started flicking paint that complimented the photo. And I used some colourful prills (micro beads) in with the flicked paint. 

I then proceeded to stamp in a few randomly but precise (yes that is the opposite but that's what I'm like in my scrapbooking 😉) spots under my layers. I used the amazing doily chipboard covered in embossing powder in with my layers. How awesome does it look?? 

Then I chose to use loolabelles chipboard pieces in the swirl and hearts. I just painted these with Dylusions acrylic paint. They come up a real treat and the chipboard holds the colour perfectly! 

I did the same finish on the title and flicked white paint around to finish it all off and bring all the pieces together. I love this page so much, it makes me smile. I think it's the leggings, nah, it's definitely the mix of them and the chipboard! 😉😜 
Products used: Shapes - Kate Doily, Piechart & Hearts Embellishments.

For my second project, I made a more simple layout really showcasing the amazing chipboard. 

Again I started with spreading texture paint as a base behind my layers. I then chose stamps that complimented the feather chipboard. Then I started my paper layers. 

I decided to paint and then emboss the feather so that it really became a focal point. The chipboard hearts I paint washed and then stamped over for a different and subtle effect. 

With the title I painted it with Dylusions paint and while wet dipped it into glitter. I liked that it didn't all stick to it exact, cos not everything needs to be perfect 😉. 
Chipboard items: Skeletal Feather (large), Hearts

Ok, for my last share I really wanted to incorporate as much of the awesome chipboard as I could. 

I wanted to make this one have a more masculine feel. The circle chipboard I paint washed it and applied an emboss over it, this was my only 'glitter' element. I painted and inked more then i have in ages with this page. 

The chevron arrows after painted I stamped over the top, but left the hearts and swirls more plain, just to have pops of green and black. 

I painted the leaves and used a few scattered around the circles adding a little more interest. 
The title I painted with acrylic black and left just like that. 

Because once the whole page was finished I flicked gold, green and white paint around to bring the whole page together. 

I've had so much fun creating with the chipboard imaginarium Designs has to offer.
 The products are inspiring in themselves. 
Thanks for checking out my creations and for the team in having me guest 😘 
I might even catch you again.
