Remember This – Mixed Media Layout

Hello to all my crafty friends!! Today I am sharing with you all my newest DT layout for The Crafter’s Workshop.

Now to sit back and relax as I show you my process in creating this layout

I started by sealing my white cardstock with TCW9006 Gel Medium Gloss, I am a huge fan of this medium as it adds such a nice finish on my layouts. To apply the gel medium, I used my silicone brush but you can use an old credit card or gift card.

Once the Gel Medium is dry, I then start on my background. I spray some Prima Color Bloom spray – Fairy Pond onto some cling wrap and then smoosh the spray around my layout. The gel medium stops the spray from being soaked up by the cardstock and this lets me manipulate the spray.

The next step I used TCW605 Elliptic stencil with Dylusions Paint – Black Marble and a make up sponge. I only used the outside circle pattern on my layout.

I decided that the original colour I used for my background wasn’t as bright as what I have hoped for, so I sprayed some Dylusions spray – Calypso Teal onto my cling wrap. For this step I folded my cling wrap a few times and crumpled it so I got a better texture for the background.

To add more texture I used Colour Blast Australia Colour Paste – Sunshine and TCW773s Connected Dots stencil. Once I had stenciled the background, I then reversed the stencil and stamped using the paste that was left on the stencil.

The last stencil I used for my background is TCW767s Floral Radar. I love this stencil and applied Dylusions paint with a make sponge and only used the radar pattern.

Now to add my embellishments, I stamped some stars onto some white cardstock and used TCW9017 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint – Lemon Custard to paint my stars. I also used this paint on my chipboard title after I applied TCW9001 White Gesso, and used a sponge to apply both white gesso and paint to my Dusty Attic Chipboard.

 

To finish off the layout I added some stamping using Black Archival ink. Because Gel Medium was applied to the cardstock, you need to use either Stazon or Archival Ink as it is permanent and won’t smear or rub off once dry. I also added some more sprays to the top and bottom of the layout and applied the Lemon Custard paint using my finger in a dabbing motion.

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”.
