my turn over at Imaginarium Designs Blog
there is a fabulous Competition for February
to begin the year with ID,
I decided to do one masculine page and one feminine
to demonstrate how versatile the Imaginarium chippies are .
I have created a slightly grungy page and on the chippies I have used three colored inks
to tone in with the papers.
first I inked with Rusty Hinge ( Tim Holtz) then added some Charcoal (kaiser)
and finished odd with brick ( Versa Color)
the secret to this effect is I find to be quite random and quick with the inks..
not too deliberate or fussy
when layering the cogs
I kept turning them in different directions until I was happy
then secured them with a brad.
the cogs are one of my faves for boy pages.. love them
"MOMENTS IN TIME "
my Ella is such a feminine little girl .. so I have used lots of flowers with the chipboard
all the chippies are inked with (Versa color) Raspberry and Aubergine ( Kaiser) you may have to look closely at the images
to see the subtle difference in the shades on the leaves and flourish .
the trick I have used here is cutting up the flourish and the leaves to add interest ..
I arranged the flowers first then added the pieces of flourish and leaves where I wanted them..
the ID chippies are so versatile, as sometimes all I need is a small piece which adds the perfect finishing touch to a page .
the title ( love all the ID titles ) is inked and then stitched in place. I felt the title looked best vertical on this page
I love in scrapbooking that there are no rules !!!! If I want to put something sideways I can... LOL !!!
I love this photo of Ella playing with lipstick.
