You Colour My World ~ Imaginarium Designs & Scrap Around the World ~

This month, Imaginarium Designs is one of the sponsors at the Scrap Around the World challenge blog and the Imaginarium Designs DT was asked to create a project inspired by the mood board and/or optional sketch. I chose to create a project inspired by the rainbow of colours on the mood board and made this mixed media canvas featuring an adorable picture of my son from this Autumn - he truly does "colour my world".
I started off the project using a Crafter's Workshop 12 x 12 Bricks template with Golden Coarse Pumice Gel. Once that had dried I coated the masked bricks and canvas with a coat of gesso. Then I added the Imaginarium Designs compass, clock and border and painted them with gesso as well. I created my own rainbow of mists for the colours using watered-down acrylic paint + pearlizing medium. Once the coloured paint dried, I added the picture and flowers and then dry-brushed everything (including the flowers) with white gesso and then Luminarte Silks Acrylic glaze in gold. The last step was to add the title - first I primed the chipboards with gesso, then painted them with Distress Crackle Paint in Picket Fence; finally, I dry brushed the letters with the gold acrylic glaze and attached them to the layout.

Here is the Scrap Around the World mood board that inspired this project:
