Little Treasure ~ Imaginarium Designs

My second project for Imaginarium Designs this month is a mixed-media layout that was inspired by this tutorial by the wonderfully-talented Aida Domisiewicz. I find myself using more and more mixed media on my layouts - it is so much fun - and the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard are perfect for this type of crafting since they are such good quality and stand up so well to multiple medias! I have called this layout Little Treasure - and the title piece is one of the Imaginarium Designs new release chipboards.
For the chipboard elements for this layout, I have used the title, the Tulip Flourish and one corner of the Anna Frame. I coated the chipboard with a light coat of gesso and then let it take on the colour of the media added to the layout. The pink tones on the flourish/corner are from Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Bodacious Blush and the darker grey on the title is from Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Midnight Rendezvous (both in the Totally '80s Magicals Pack). I also did some misting on the layout with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist in Wild Honeysuckle Coral. The splatters are Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Mist in Cheshire Cat Cherry and diluted Distress Ink (re-inker) in Black Soot. Once I finished the misting/painting with the colours, I dry brushed some gesso on top of the chipboards and lace to help them stand out. Here are some close-ups:
