Good morning,

My March post for Imaginarium Designs is now live!

I am sharing some of my post today, the whole post including a tutorial is here.
So I will start with my first project which is a 12X12 layout, of my 2 children having such a great time in North Queensland.

"Happy Days"



For this layout I chose a variety of chipboard and a very quick whitewashed effect using titanium white panpastel + fixative.

Gone Off The Page...

Hello,

At long last something to share, I have been busy creating but I haven't had a chanve to take pictures of all my work yet...
Today it is a Meg's Garden share! "An Ode to a Summer's Day" is such a pretty collection, I did not have any trouble finding inspiration. The soft yellow tones in the papers remind me of my little girl's beach blond hair, so I decided to create a mini album with my 10 favourite photos of her in 2012. I mainly used yellow, green and beigy colours throughout the album, I wanted to give it a very soft touch. I also wanted to add some funky elements to my overall design such as banners, polaroid photo frames and some personal touches such as dry embossing and punched circles.

"Coaster Album Photos 2012"

I have Rachelle's gorgeous tag stamp on the front under the photo :) Love those stamps!!!

Love the square doilies, I cut the borders off and used as accent throughout the album:



Love the ferns in the papers! And I also cut some of the words out as embellishments!


Here I used a doily for my background instead of dry embossing:


My favourite page in the album:

I cut some triangles out of Meg's paper to make little banners, I repeated this element throughout the album to tie the design together!








Here I joined the green leaves together to create a flower accent!
