Imaginarium Designs Reveal Day

Hello Everyone, Today I have 3 DT projects to share with you.  I decided to go a little vintage with a couple of them and a little whimsy with the other, so fun.

Here's my first project, using the beautiful Graphic 45 "Kraft Reflections" paper collection.  This is a photo of my friend's girls which I altered in Photoshop by adding some texture and then giving it a vintage feel.  The Imaginarium Designs Chipboard is the large Steampunk Clock (IDS0030), one of my favorites!!

To alter the Imaginarium Designs chipboard I inked both pieces with Tim Holtz "Walnut Stain" ink and then added a couple of Antique Brass Brads along with a couple of small stickers from the G45 collection.

For my second project I went alittle whimsy using the Prima Pixie Glen & Romantique paper collections.  This is a photo of my niece's daughter Madison.  I did a lot of layering and popped up some of the pieces.  The Imaginarium Design pieces were the Florish 1 and Variations (IDT00030)
to add here and there in the cluster on the bottom left side of the layout.

To alter the Imaginarium Designs chipboard "Flourish 1 and Variations" (IDT0003) I first gessoed them and then inked them with Tim Holtz "Walnut Stain".  After that dried I decided to use some Lindy's Stamping Gang's "Golden Lump Ocoal".

And for my third project I went a little vintage again since it's my favorite.  This is a photo of my hairdresser's little sweetie.  Again I altered the photo in Photoshop using some texture and vintage feel to it.  I used the awesome Prima "Printery" paper collection.  I had this awesome rusty key that I just couldn't resist using.  Again I did a lot of layering and aging of the paper.

To alter the Imaginarium Chipboard pieces "Oval Frame" (IDFL0002) that I cut in half, and the "Thistles Board" (IDS0025) I first painted them with Folk Art "Parchment" paint.  After that dried I inked the pieces with Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" and then inked the edges with Tim Holtz's  "Walnut Stain".  Then I stamped them with a postal stamp that I used randomly in the layout for something different.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!!  Don't forget to go to and leave a comment on my post to be entered to win some beautiful chipboard!!!


  1. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
