Boys will be Boyz Mixed Media Layout

Today I am sharing with you my newest creation for The Crafter’s Workshop. I love creating grungy masculine layouts and I actually got my inspiration from the More than Words Challenge.

So this is what I created – if you want to see the full tutorial please click here to go to The Crafter’s Workshop Blog.

So the brief was to create something that is inspired by the word ” Birthday” and has to have at least 2 tags. This photo of Noah on this 13th birthday last month was perfect – spending time at his favourite place doing what he loves with is best friends.

Now for my Dusty Attic chipboard – I lightly covered the Paint Brushes #2 and Mason Jars chipboard with TCW9001 White Gesso and then used some Distress Crayons to colour. The crayons I used were – Broken China, Brushed Corduroy, Chipped Sapphire, Candied Apple, Black Soot, Lucky Clover, Wild Honey, Mowed Lawn, Spiced Marmalade and Ripe Persimmon. And I used my finger to blend the crayons.

These Are Treasured Memories layout

Hi Everyone, I’m back today to share with you my interpretation of the Dusty Attic December Mood Board. These colours are just amazing and I decided to use these colours as the base of my layout.

mood board

And this is what I came up with…

cover

I started by using 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy pp – Cloud Watching and white Cardstock as my base. Then mixed some white gesso with Distress Stain Peacock Feathers to create a light blue paint.

20171204_113032

Using my fingers I applied the paint onto my paper and used a heat tool to dry. I then applied Nuvo Embellishment Mouse – Pacific Teal using a baby wipe in a swiping motion. I then put a small amount of white gesso onto the baby wipe to help blend the mouse.

I also used the same mousse around the edges of the my photo mount before adhering my photo.

Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Spray – Shabby Turbine Teal to create depth around the torn edges of my paper using a paint brush and some water.

I then added some texture by using TCW Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste and TCW662s Mini Tile Mania stencil.

Now for the chippy!!! I used Dusty Attic Geometric Border, Geometric Corners  and cut them into smaller pieces so I could build a layer with them. I then painted them and the  String Frames Small with Prima Acrylic Paint Sparks – Raven Black. Once dry I then adhered them onto my layout.

I then used my finger to apply a small amount of Prima Acrylic Sparks Paint – Mermaid Sparkle and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal to the geometric pieces.

20171204_152239

I also added some stamping using Stampers Anonymous stamps – Ultimate Grunge and Slight Alterations with Ranger Archival Ink – Watering Can.

Then to finish it off I used These Are Treasured Moments chipboard and lightly covered with white gesso using a make up sponge and then blended Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal around the edges. And adhered a tab from Mini Tabs #7 Black.

The Best Days – Mixed Media Layout

Today is my last DT post for Sassy Scrappers and I would just like start off by thanking Olga for asking me to join her amazing team… what started out being for only 3 months ended up lasting 9 months and I have truly enjoyed every minute of it. And I would also like to thank all the Sassy Fans that have followed me over the last 9 months xx.

So let me show you what I created and how I went about it….

main image

I started by cutting 7 strips of Glitz Design pp – Sunshine in my Soul – Stripe and adhered the 7 strips onto to Glitz Design – Sunshine in my Soul – Suns.

20171118_111139

I then used TCW9001 White Gesso using my Finnabair 1″ Silicone Brush to seal around the paper cluster. I also used my finger to lightly rub white gesso around the edges of my photo.

20171118_111337

Once dry I then started to apply my colours to the background. Using a wet paint brush I applied 13arts Ayeeda Mists – Pastel Cobalt, then Chalk Ultramarine and to finish I used Chalk Indigo. Making sure I dried between colours.

I then splattered all 3 colours onto my background also

Next I applied 13arts Ayeeda Mist Pastel Caramel just to highlight some areas and then added some builders tape for a little bit of texture. (I bought this tape from my local hardware store)

20171118_120728

I set that a side and started on my photo mount – I used some cardboard from a packing box and ripped the first layer off. I then rubbed white gesso around the edges and using a wet brush I applied a small amount of 13arts Ayeeda Mist Chalk Indigo.

I then added some stickers from Pinkfresh Studio – Escape the Ordinary range and finished off with some stamping using Tim Hotlz stamps/stencil THMM104, a flair by Funky Flair Studio from the Boyz Rule range and some cotton thread in a blue and tan colour.

And there you have it – simple but lots of fun to create. Thanks for dropping by and until tomorrow – stay crafty!!! xx

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.

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.

20171105_124632

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.
