Hi all, so sorry for being absent for so long! I have an awful lot going on at home at the moment, and those of you who know all about it will understand my reasons for putting Blogger a little lower on my list of priorities! Still, whilst I am having a well deserved chill on the sofa with my daughter, I thought I would quickly update my poor neglected blog!
So you may recall me showing you a couple of sneek peeks of two layouts I created using Imaginarium Designs chipboard…well over on their blog they are now shown in full, so I thought I would show you here too…..
The first is made using the gorgeous fence piece which comes as a 12″ length. However I cut it down into smaller pieces so I could use them within clusters over the page…
For this ‘Letting off steam’ LO, I painted the swirls in black also but used Silver inks on the cogs. I then added interest to the swirls with some liquid pearls.
I really had fun creating the liquid metal effects on each side of the page. I squirted acrylic paint in a thick line down the edge of the page and held it on its side so the paint could run down. When I was happy with the effect, i quickly covered the wet paint in silver embossing powder and applied heat until it had all melted.
Check back tomorrow at 2pm GMT for the monthly Zva Creative Blog Hop, they are always so much fun and so full of inspiration!
