WONDERLAND ~~Imaginarium Designs~~

Happy New Year To You All!!!  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and I wish you all a fun and creative year!!

Today I have 2 Design Team projects to share with you for Imaginarium Designs!

This first layout is a photo of my Grandsons Ethan and Elias at their school play, they're SO cute!!  I used the Prima "Printery" Paper Collection for this project along with the beautiful ID pieces including the Clock and Compass, words, and the Musical Notes with Holly.  To alter the pieces I first gessoed and painted with Folk Art "Wicker White".  I then used a fan prush to apply some Folk Art "Raw Umber" and then applied some Crackle Medium, which didn't dry so well and along with me having a migraine it was a little late to remedy, but I still love how everything came out!

My second project is a layout using some more beautiful chipboard from Imaginarium Designs, the gorgeous vine flourish, tinies flourishes, and the tinies oval frame.  I also used the Little Yellow Bicycle "Wonderland" papers from my December kit from Scraps of Darkness.  This was a beautiful image of winter I found on pinteret and just loved with these papers.   I used a lot of molding paste around the edge of the layout and altered the ID pieces using some Tim Holtz Distress Ink and Stain (Vintage Photo).

Thanks so much for dropping by and I hope you enjoy!!
