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.

LOVE art journal page for The Crafter’s Workshop

Hello my peeps!!! How lucky am I to be able to share with you one of my favourite art journal pages on my birthday?!! I couldn’t think of a better time to be sharing the “LOVE”!!!

The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own. Click here to see what the other amazing team have created.

I started my background by tearing a page from a dictionary and adhering it using TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium. Once I gave it a quick dry with my heat gun, I then started applying my acrylic paint. I used my fingers to apply the paint as I love the effect you get and I love getting my hands messy lol. So I started from light to dark – Fluro Yellow, Fluro Green, Fluro Orange, Fluro Pink and last of all Fluro Purple.

Next I used TCW737s Love Sonnet stencil and not using the whole stencil, I applied TCW9023 Blue Jellybean Heavy Body Acrylic paint using a make up blending sponge.

Once that was dry, I then applied TCW9022 Grape Jelly acrylic paint through the circles of TCW754 Distressed Details. Using the same stencil, I then used the mesh pattern and TCW9016 Spun Sugar acrylic paint on both pages. On the left page I did however flip the stencil over and sponged the reverse side with paint.

I added a scribble circle stamp and cross stamp from VivaLasVegaStamps Plate 1495 and used Versafine Black Onyx and added some doodling around the stamped images using paint pens.

Next using TCW9015 Black Licorice acrylic paint and TCW527 Word Association, I sponged the word “LOVE” and also the stars on the bottom left hand page and top right hand page. Then to finish it off I put the stencil back over the stars and used a yellow paint pen to trace around the stars and I also used a pink paint pen to highlight “LOVE”.

Adventure Mixed Media Layout

Hello Everyone!!! I’m back today to share with you all a mixed media layout I created for The Crafter’s Workshop using one of my favourite stencils from the new 2017 Summer range….TCW744 Wanderlust.

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

I started my layout with the dabbing technique using a piece of old plastic packaging, water and Distress Oxides in Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans and Broken China. I used my heat gun to dry the inks in between each colour.

Once I was happy with the background of my layout, I then used TCW744 Wanderlust with Dylusions Black Marble spray. I did use washi tape to tape off the areas I didn’t want the spray to come through. I then decided that the colour wasn’t as bold as what I had expected so I used a make up sponge to apply TCW9015 Black Licorice Heavy Body Paint….much better!!!

The next step I used TCW9008 Clear Modeling Paste and mixed a small amount of Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker – Bavarian Blue to create my own paste to put through the 6×6 Wanderlust stencil. I used the small one as I didn’t want the title of my layout to be too big as my photo was trimmed down.

I then set my layout aside to dry and started to work on my chipboard. I covered my chipboard using a make up sponge and TCW9003 Gold Gesso. I then used a paint brush to water down TCW 9001 White Gesso and TCW9021 Blueberry Pie Heavy Body Paint and splattered onto my chipboard. I used my heat gun to dry and then cut into 2 pieces using scissors.

Gold and white Gesso

I used TCW 9001 White Gesso to brush around my photo very lightly using my index finger and then once it was dry I used iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive to adhere my chipboard pieces and cheese cloth and photo to my layout.

To finish it off I then splattered some Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber using a little bit of water a small paint brush.
