Unforgettable Mixed Media Layout

Hello there my lovelies!!! Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media layout I created for Sassy Scrappers using some more fabulous products from 13 Arts. There is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to see me in action.

Earlier this year I taught on a scrapbooking cruise and took this selfie of the girls working hard in one of my classes. As some of you know I have 3 boys which means I use a lot of blues in my scrapbooking. So I was super excited to be able to create a page that was just for the girls!!! So let me give you a quick run through on how I created this layout. I started by building my photo mount using 13 Arts Fly Away pp – Days and Nights. I used both sides of the pp and also used the A4 sticker sheet for the title and the small doilies.

To build my background I used gel medium to seal my paper and then applied 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Green with a paint brush and water. Once dry I then used 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Pink using the dabbing effect and splattered the page using both mists.

Then I stamped the background using Kaisercraft Diamond stamp and Ranger Emboss It Dabber (Versamark pad is fine to use also) and then heat embossed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powder Guten Tag Teal.

Before adhering my photo cluster, I painted the edges of the cluster and the doilies with 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Pink and mounted the cluster using some scrap chipboard pieces.

The butterflies I fussy cut from 13arts Fly Away pp – Days and Night and I only adhered the center of the butterflies so I could add dimension by bending the wings. Then to finish off the layout I used a Dymo Label machine to add the date.

Thanks for dropping and I can’t wait to share with you all my next project

Mixed Media Pencil Case

Hey Everyone!! Today I’m sharing with you a canvas pencil case I decided needed a little makeover. I’m sure you all have something in your craftroom that is a little on the boring side whether it is plain or the colour is bland. Well why not give it a makeover using some pretty amazing TCW stencils?

Well with that said, let me show you my process in giving my pencil case a new life!!!

20171031_121807

 

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.

To start off I applied a coat of TCW9007 Clear Gesso….why you ask? I found that if the material wasn’t sealed then the paint will be absorbed and your colour will be quite bland. You don’t need a lot, just enough to cover the whole area and then use a heat gun to dry it.

Once it was dry, I then applied my background colour. I used Dylusions Paints Lemon Zest, Pure Sunshine, Fresh Lime, White Linen, Vibrant Turquoise and Funky Fuchsia. I started off applying the paint with a dry paint brush but then decided to use my fingers (I find this gives me more control over the paint). I just layered the paint until I was happy with finish effect. And I dried in between colours.

Now for the stenciling – I used 3 of the 6×6 stencils along with TCW’s Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and a make up sponge. So I started with TCW754s – Distressed Details with TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9015 Black Licorice.

The next stencil I used is TCW739s – Trendy Images along with a mixture of TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9022 Grape Jelly.

The last stencil I used is TCW 751s – Kitchen Tiles and I used TCW9016 Spun Sugar and TCW9023 Blue Jellybean to create a light blue colour.

To finish off the pencil case I used my Uni Posca Paint pens in Black, White, Light Blue, Pink and Yellow to highlight some of the stencils and then applied a light coat of TCW9007 Clear Gesso to seal it all.

Bare Feet & Salty Hair Mixed Media Layout

Happy Monday Everyone! Here in Australia we have been experiencing some amazing summer weather so I thought I would create a layout using one of my favourite photos of the 4 men (big and small) in our family.

20171105_124603

I tore a sheet of Corrugated Card and with a dry brush I light added some white gesso.

For the chipboard, I used Creative Layers #1 and Mini Captions #13. I covered the chipboard pieces with white gesso and then sprayed them using Prima Color Blooms sprays – Summer Sky & Soft Teal. I felt it needed another colour so I lightly spritzed using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Steampunk Sepia and fell in love with how it turned out. I also added some Dylusions Black Marble spray for the words “Feet” & “Hair” just to highlight.

20171105_124644

For the background I used TCW662s Mini Tile Mania stencil with Clear Modeling Paste by The Crafters Workshop and Finnabair Stone Effect – Pumice. The sprays I used are Prima’s Color Bloom Summer Sky, Soft Teal and Dragonfly Blue. The colours were perfect on top of Blue fern Studios wanderlust – mountain view.

To finish it off I added some stamping using Finnabair Rust & Dust stamp set and both Art Stones and Mini Art Stones as well as some splattering using LSG Steampunk Sepia and the Color Bloom sprays.

Beautiful Moments Mixed Media Canvas

Hey Hey Everyone!!
Today is my turn over on the Sassy Scrappers Blog and I am sharing with you a mixed media canvas I created using 13arts papers and sprays along with Prima’s Color Philosophy Dye Inks. So let give you a quick tutorial in how I created this.

I have to apologise for the process photos…. we have just moved into our new house and the lighting isn’t the best.

I started off by applying modeling paste to my 5×7 inch canvas board and used a comb like tool to create the lined texture. I then applied 13arts Ayeeda Mists Pastel PinkLavender and caramel using a wet paint brush. I also used those sprays to splatter around the edges. Once dry, I then inked around the edges using Prima Color Philosophy Ink – Foggy Nights and with a wet paint brush just lightly went over the edges to create a shadow like effect.

I then cut 2 straws in half and adhered them to the canvas. Next to colour the cheesecloth, I inked my craft mat with Foggy Nights and sprayed with water then rubbed the cheesecloth in the ink and used my heat gun to dry and then adhered to the canvas.

I cut out a paper doily from the 13arts Fly Away pp Days and Nights and sprayed it using Ayeeda Mist Pastel Cobalt. I also used the Fly Away sticker sheet for the title which I trimmed and mounted onto white cardstock.

Next I added some gold wire from my stash and some flowers that I had lightly painted with Pastel Pink and Pastel Caramel spray and then splattered using Dylusions Black Marble spray.

Thanks for dropping by and look forward to sharing my next project with you very soon.

Little Things Make Big Days Mixed Media Layout

Hello Lovelies!! Today it’s my turn to share a mixed media layout over on the Sassy Scrappers Blog.  I have linked all the products I have used to the Sassy Scrappers Store throughout the blog for your convenience.

So let me show you how I created this quick and easy scrapbooking layout.

I started off by applying a very thin coat of gel medium to my white cardstock and dried using my heat gun. I then applied Prima Color Philosophy Dye Ink – Apricot by swiping the ink pad directly onto my cardstock. I then sprayed a little amount of water to let the ink move around until I was happy.

Once it was dry I then splattered 13arts Pastel Caramel Ayeeda Mist and dried again with my heat gun.

Next I stamped Prima Color Philosophy Dye Ink – Foggy Nights onto my craft mat and added some water. Using a paint brush I applied the ink to my layout. So that nothing was wasted, I used the left over ink to splatter onto my layout.
20171017_12335920171017_123528
I then cut a photo mount using Pink Fresh Studios Escape the Ordinary pp – Observe as well as some of the shapes. I used my water pen and the Foggy Nights ink pad to brush the ink around the edges of my shapes and the photo mount.

I adhered all the elements onto my layout and then choose 3 stickers from Pink Fresh Studios Escape the Ordinary sticker sheet and inked around the edges again using Foggy Nights.
