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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

#Like A Boss – Dusty Attic DT

Whoo hoo it’s Friday and today I am sharing a layout using some awesome chipboard by Dusty Attic Chipboard.

20170926_125018

 I had so much fun creating this layout and wanted to try and keep it simple as the papers are quite bold. So with this mind I decided to keep the colours to a minimum – orange, blue black and white.

The papers I used are by Fab Scraps #teens collection (I love this range – perfect for boy layouts). I covered the cogs, arrows, hashtag and title chipboard in white gesso first to help the colour pop. The skull I covered with black gesso.

For the arrows I used Dylusions Calypso Team and used a paint brush to cover the chipboard.

For the cogs and title I used Distress Stain Spiced Marmalade and Fluro Orange acrylic paint. Once they dried I then used a blending tool with Distress Oxide Black Soot to go around the edges.

I wanted to add more black to my page so I decided to used the page pebbles chipboard and ink with black archival Ink.

To finish off the layout, I used the fluro orange paint with a little amount of water, white gesso and Dylusions spray to splatter on my background and also on the small skull.

Today I am super excited to be sharing a layout that I created for Scrap The Girls (click here to see what the other amazing DT girls have created).

As you all know I have 3 boys so I don’t get to create using girly colours often so I was super chuffed when I was asked to be a guest designer for this month. Below is the sketch we had to get our inspiration from.

And this is what I created. I used Distress Oxides in Picked Raspberry, Peacock Feathers, Black Soot and Twisted Citron for my background.
