Dylusions Stamp Sets - Imagine If

Hello! hope you all had a great Easter with family and friends. I set aside one day to have a play with the new stamp sets that Jo has in her shop over at Imagine If. This first one is by Dylusions called Background Love. It comes with 4 stamps which I used two of them on this Art journal layout. (the swirls and the flowers). The words and the butterfly are from some Kaisercraft paper Jo sent me Treasured Moments Collection
 
 
The second Art Journal layout I wanted a bit more brighter and fun. I used another background in the corner from Background Love and then 3 out of the 4 flowers from a new set called Doodle Blooms. This was such a fun layout to do, fussing cutting the flowers then adding white gel pen to make the "pop" from the page.
 
 
So I hope you liked my two pages I created. I love Dylusions Stamp sets, they are so much fun and have a whimsical look to them. Happy Crafting. Tracy.

DT Project for Imagine If - Dream

Hi, something a little bit different from me this month for my DT project over at Imagine If. I decided to have a go at doing an art canvas. I am pretty sure this will be the first of many as I now have my daughters friends all wanting one!
I used a lot of elements from Imagine If store which you will be able to see in the next few photos.
 
Firstly I used a brick stencil to add a bit of texture to canvas then arranged my pieces until I was happy then covered everything with Gesso
 
 
 
And then I got to get messy!!! using many layers of Tim Holtz Distress Paint "Walnut Stain", Distress spray stain "Twisted Citron and Ground Expresso" And then finished edges with Distress Ink "Vintage Photo"
I then used my Gelatos to highlight areas. I felt it still needed something else so that's when I added a few embellishments. Here's a couple close ups.
 
 
 
So I really hope you enjoyed my project and it inspired you to get your paints, sprays and stains out!!! Jo has an amazing amount of chipboard to play with the ideas are never ending!
