Picture Perfect Mixed Media Layout – The Crafter’s Workshop DT

Happy Thursday my lovelies!!!

Today I am back with another video but this time I created a scrapbook layout using some pretty cool products. So sit back, relax and I hope you enjoy both my step by step tutorial and video tutorial which is at the end of the blog xx

I started with some white cardstock and tore some strips of Tim Holtz Tissue Paper, then applied them to the cardstock using TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte. I used my heat tool to dry once I was happy.

Next I applied some crackle medium around the edges of the tissue paper. Once dry I then used Distress Oxide Sprays in Faded Jeans, Walnut Stain and Fossilized Amber to build my background. I used a paint brush to move the sprays around the page until I was happy and made sure to dry in between colours.

I love using this stamp by Darkroom Door – Number Border, it is perfect for the boy layouts. I stamped it randomly with black archival ink.

The next step I wanted to add some more texture so using TCW835 Plaid Fringe stencil in the 6×6, I used a bristle brush to apply Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I then used TCW9027 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste and TCW737 Love Sonnet 6×6 stencil just to add a little “Pop” to my layout.

I inked the edges of some corrugated cardstock using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and created some tags using some patterned cardstock from my stash. For the chipboard title, I applied some TCW9001 White Gesso and then used Distress Oxide Ink to colour it. I used the same 3 colours as the sprays.

To finish off the layout I inked around the edges of the cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and added some splatters.

Perfect Moments – Mixed Media Layout

Hello there my crafty followers!!! Today I have a layout I have created for The Crafter’s Workshop and Dusty Attic using some awesome new products.

Please excuse the quality of some of the photos as I was away on a crafty weekend and the lighting wasn’t the best.

TCW9001 Matte gel medium

To start off with my layout I lightly apply TCW9011 Matte Gel Medium to seal my page. I have used 7 Dots Studio range – Writer’s Block. I tend to do this with all my layouts as 9 times out 10 I have no idea where my layouts will take me and it is better to be prepared.

TCW9001 white gesso

Next I use my silicone brush to add strokes of TCW9001 White Gesso to the area that my photo will go. I have used short strokes rather than long ones – I think it gives more of a grunge look.

TCW9033 Marcasite Silver Modeling Paste

Once the gesso is dry I then use TCW790s Micro Bricks stencil and TCW9033 Marcasite Silver Modeling Paste. I have to say this is my new favourite modeling paste!!! It is just amazing – really creamy and the colour is stunning.

TCW790s Micro Bricks Stencil and white gesso

Next I tear up some Corrugated cardstock and using my finger, I lightly rub some TCW9001 White Gesso and adhere to my layout. I decided for this layout that I would use raw chipboard. Here I have used Industrial Globes and Mini Chains – 10pk.

TCW9027 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste

To finish off the background I used TCW9027 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste and watered it down so that I could splatter it. I also did the same using TCW9011 White Gesso.
