Living the Dream – Dusty Attic

Wow can you believe it is already AUGUST?!!! I seriously have no idea where this year has gone! So today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with my interpretation of the August mood board and can I just say this month’s board is absolutely stunning!!! I used the colours for my inspiration and was lucky enough to have the perfect photo to match!!

For my layout I am using some of the chipboard from the new release and Jen has done an amazing job creating these little beauties. I actually had to stop myself from adding more chippy!!!

For all of my chipboard pieces apart from the wordpl@ay #1 piece, I applied a coat of white gesso and then added colours using various Prima inks and sprays. I also applied some inks to the Dusty in Bloom flowers.

For my background I used a stencil and modeling paste to add some texture. I also heat embossed the frame around the photo and then added some highlights with inks.

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.
