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

Enjoy the little things – Art Journal Page

Hello Everyone!! Today I am sharing with you another project I created using this month’s product partner, Altered Pages and a TCW stencil. If you would like to check out more digital prints you can head on over to Jean’s website at www.alteredpages.com

So let step you through my process in creating this art journal page….I absolutely love this image called Cinco de Mayo

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

I started off by placing some scrap paper underneath sections of TCW749s Floating City stencil where I didn’t want my paste to go. Because my art journal is 8×8 inches I had to stencil twice. I used washi tape to keep my scraps of paper from moving. I used a palette knife to spread on my Colour Blast Australia Stormy Weather Paste and used a heat gun to dry.

Next I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks to add colour to my sky and the buildings. For the sky I sprayed some water onto my tray and drew the sticks in the water to create a watercolour consistency and applied with a small paint brush.

For the Buildings I drew the scribble sticks directly onto my buildings and used a wet paint brush to blend the colours. I also used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Sprays – Steampunk Sepia and Rusty Lantern Lime. I also applied the sprays with a small paint brush.

Once I was happy with the buildings, I then moved onto the water. For this I applied Lindy’s Stamp Gang spray Sassy Sapphire, 13arts Chalk Ultramarine and Chalk Indigo sprays using water and a paintbrush.

I wanted to add a little bit of a shimmer to my water so I used a dry paint brush to tap some Colour Blast Shimmer Dust Peacock onto my page and activated it with water.

To finish off my canal, I tapped some scrap paper to my Floating City stencil  (just to make sure I didn’t get any paint where is shouldn’t go) and used TCW9021 Blueberry Pie Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and a sponge to dab my waves. I did this technique several times until I was happy.

Now for my gorgeous Cuban princess!!! I printed her onto normal A4 computer paper and after fussy cutting her, I then adhered her to a thicker card using Grafix Artist-tac adhesive sheets and then added some foam tape before adding her to my page.

To finish off my page I stamped a quote using Dina Wakley’s Gal Quotes and black archival ink. I cut the quote out into individual strips and adhered to my page.
