A Mixed Media Canvas and Black and White Layout ~~Imaginarium Designs~~

Hi Everyone,  Today I'm sharing two DT projects for Imaginarium Designs.  The 1st is a mixed media canvas piece.  The image I used was created by Teddi, my friend at  To begin I used 3 of Tim Holtz's new stencils - Clockwork, Bubble, and Burlap with some light moulding paste.  After that dried I began rubbing in some Inka Gold Metallic Rubs - Steel Blue, Copper, Green-Yellow, and Gold.  I also rubbed the Inka's on all the metal gears and embellishments to match the canvas.  I think I've found a new fav in the Inka's..just love the colors and effect!!!  The Imaginarium Designs chipboard pieces that I used are the "Steampunk Clock" (IDT0016), Oval Frames (3 per board) Tinies (IDT0002), Long Swirly Flourish Small (IDFL0011), and the Leaves and Circles Flourish (IDFL0013).  I didn't gesso the pieces just rubbed the Inkas on them and they turned out just perfectly!!!  So here we go, here's the canvas followed by som close-ups.  Hope you enjoy, it was so fun to create!!

For my second project I used some beautiful black and white papers from Imaginisce's "Black Ice Collection".  This is a photo of my niece Zara with her little girl Madison.  For this project I used Imaginarium Designs chipboard pieces "Two Hearts with Cross Flourish (IDDL0004) along with "It's Your Smile That Captures My Heart" Phrase (IDP0093) which I altered using Tim Holtz's Distress Embossing Powder - Tattered Rose.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek and I hope you've enjoyed my creations.  Don't forget to go to and leave a comment for a chance to win some beautiful chipboard!!!
