Working on a small space limits me to get all the materials and tools that I wanted. I learned to maximize the space and the supplies I have. When I received all the gorgeous chipboards, I noticed that those negatives that came with it are as gorgeous as the chipboards. So I decided to use them as well!
For my first layout, I have used the negative of Numbers chipboard. I initially removed all the numbers on it and placed it in a plastic ziplock back for easy access when I need them.
Products Used: Bazill cardstock, Crate Paper patterned papers and embellishments (My Scrapbook Nook Valentines Mini kit), BasicGrey transparent heart embellishment, Shabby Chic journaling spot, Gesso acrylic paint, Hero Arts stamps, Ideology Stamps, October Afternoon, Studio Calico and Shimmerz mists.
Imaginarium Design Chipboards used:
Sheet of Numbers (IDN0002)
To achieve the look I wanted, I first did several coating using white gesso acrylic paint. Then, using several stamp designs and different coloured inkpads, I randomly stamped over the negative chipboard. For the final touch, I slightly misted over it to get some small splatters. I also adhere patterned papers beneath the some numbers to emphasize that the photo was taken this year, 2012.
The butterflies were just painted with white acrylic gesso to achieve a silhouette look.
