Imaginarium theme post

Imaginarium Theme post 
By Sue Smyth 

Bloggers today I am sharing with you a layout for 
Imaginariums theme post, this month we had to 
use borders on our work.

I have used my borders as the background, along 
with some regular chipboard shapes
to add interest to the page.

The flower is a Magnolia Lane paper flower 
which has been spritzed in the middle and
I have added a selection of pearls,
 after I snipped away the stamens, then a 
drop of dimensional magic to adhere them in place.

Butterfly is simply painted with Starlights metallic
blue paint

Once the chip is adhered to the cardstock, I have 
painted with gesso and then sprayed 
with teal dylusions and dried well.
Then rub over metallic or inka gold paints 
and finish with a light layer of gold paint.

I have embossed the Happy Days with aged gold 
embossing  powder from Stampendous, do this 
twice for a lustrous look.

This is a resin piece I have cast my self with 
Prima molds, then painted gold.
Spray over with black dylusions and 
mop off excess.
then I have highlighted with inka gold turquoise and blue

Happy Crafting
