Paris in Pink - Imaginarium Designs

I have an Imaginarium Designs project to share today. Actually it's for tomorrow, but it's already tomorrow in Australia, so here you go! For those of you looking to buy the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard, visit HERE for information. These chippies are NOT yet available in the USA, but hopefully they will be soon!

Here is my layout for today. What I love about being on this team is that I get to just "let it all hang out" in the creativity department. I can use whatever products I desire, as long as I use the ID chipboard. I had myself a blast with this Paris-themed layout!

I created a project with many layers, including a pocket. The long rectangle piece on the left side...that is Prima packaging! It was too pretty to toss, so I inked it up and used it!

To create the butterfly (IDS0001) and Paris word (IDW0002), I painted the chipboard with white acrylic paint. Then I sprayed the chipboard with Goosebumps Texture Spray. Once the spray dried, I inked with chalk ink.

I really had fun cutting out bits and pieces from Graphic 45 and 7 Gypsies papers, plus digging into my stash of flowers for just the right buds to accent my page! All the pink works great with the photo - which my husband took, and he framed those roses perfectly! So pretty!

I created some contrast by adding bits of black here and there. To make the scrolls, I used a frame (IDT0006), and cut it apart. I then inked it with black ink. Love the using black with the cream, kraft, and pink.

This layout reminds me of an old fashioned scrapbook or memo board. Photos and odds and ends. Romantic and soft and vintage.
