Using Negatives

I am here to share with you a layout that I did showcasing not only some of the Imaginarium Design chipboards but using the negatives that came with it.

Products Used: Making Memories patterned paper, Crate Paper patterned papers and embellishments (My Scrapbook Nook Valentine Mini kit), EK Success border punch, Ranger Liquid Pearls, KI Memories stickers, Dew Drops, Glass Sand, Coloured Sand, White Inkpad, October Afternoon, Studio Calico and Shimmerz mists.

Imaginarium Design Chipboards used:

I used the negative of this chipboard. I have purchased different small packed coloured sands from our local bookstore a while back. I knew that sand will give me the texture and depth that I wanted to achieve. By simply using liquid glue, I adhered the fuchsia sand by sprinkling over it several times until the entire chipboard was covered.

For the butterfly, I painted it first with several coats of white gesso acrylic paint. Then, I coated it with liquid glue and sprinkled transparent glass sand over it. I also misted some red mist and used a white inkpad to stamp on it.
