Pastel Creations...

Hello Imaginarium Designs Fans!

You are with Sandrine today! And I am very excited to share 2 layouts for my first post!!!

The first layout is of my son on his 7th birthday, he let me take photos and even smiled for them lol!


"7"



I love soft shabby colours, it is me! And those colours also are a lot like my son too (everyone says we look alike) so the layout came quickly together, there are lots of layers, and a little tip is to create those layers with the chipboard at the bottom, it will create AMAZING dimension!



Here I attached my banner onto the chipboard fence, very easy and effective and you can still see the chipboard!!!
  


My chipboard treatment:
Fence, Mini Cogs and fence: I applied 2 coats of Picket Fence Distress Stain, inked edges with Walnut Ink Distress Ink.
The Fence was glued down with 3 layers of foam tape! The chipboard in this layout is used to create extra dimension. I kept the treatment simple on all the chipboard pieces, to keep with the soft shabby feel of my layout, this is one of the reason why I love chipboard so much, you can alter it to go with your mood and creativity







ID CHIPBOARD USED:
- HEART TOP PICKET FENCE IDB0005
- NUMBERS IDN0001
- 9 COGS ON BOARD IDT0004

OTHER PRODUCTS USED:
- PAPERS: PRIMA, PINK PAISLEE, FANCY PANTS
- FLOWERS: PRIMA
- TIM HOLTZ TISSUE TAPE

- STAMPS: PINK PAISLEE, PRIMA, KAISERCRAFT
- OTHER: PICKET FENCE DISTRESS STAIN, WALNUT STAIN DISTRESS INK, STAMPIN UP SAGE SHADOW INK, PIN, GAUZE

My second layout is a little more experimental with the use of Glimmermists. It is of my two children posing on our last day at the beach last December, there again soft colours but different techniques!

"Treasured Memories"


 "Treasured Memories" title was first painted with a thin layer of Gesso, and then lightly sprayed with yellow and blue Glimmermist:


 The gorgeous Feather was also lightly painted with Gesso, then sprayed a bit more heavily with yellow Glimmermist, when dry I added some "Rock Candy" Distress Stickles to the middle area. I let it dry and then added the blue glimmermist with a paint brush, the rock candy gives gorgeous texture to the feather:


 The Fence was lightly painted with Gesso, I painted the Hearts with blue Glimmermist and lightly sprayed the bottom with yellow glimmermist:

  16. Hi Sandrine,

    First of all, I love your name, it is so pretty.

    The subtle colours you have used in your LO, are terrific, ia adore them. What a great idea to use these type of colours for a boy, very different and a change form all the grungy, dark colours often Wed for male LOs.

    Cheers
    Selma
