Together Mixed Media Layout

Hello everyone! Do you ever feel giddy when completing a crafty project? I don’t usually get really excited about my work, but this layout has me feeling giddy and happy! This must be one of the longest projects I have ever created on a layout… I worked on this piece for a good two hours…but the end result is totally worth while. I just love it!

To begin, I mixed a little bit of the  Flamingo Sorbet Dimensional Paint with some of the Glass Sorbet Dimensional Paint to lighten up the color a bit. I wanted more of a bubblegum pick background. I used a silicone brush to scrape the paint across the cardstock so the paint was nice and even. 

Once the pink was dry, I added a few layers of the Mermaid Sorbet Dimensional Paint across the top of the layout. I added about four layers of the Mermaid paint so the color would be as vibrant as possible. This took time because I had to make sure each layer was completely dry before applying the next layer, otherwise the paint would look muddy. 

After the paint was completely dry, I decided to add some of the Vegas Gold Dimensional Paint. The colors look soooooo pretty together! I used the Metal Effects Dimensional Medium and Flity Stencil to create silver flowers at the bottom of the layout.

Since I only had clear jewels I used my markers to color them! They look perfect! Then I cut two hearts free-handed from cardstock and painted them to use as frames for the layout.

Since I didn’t have any embellishments that would go well with the colors with the exception of a few stickers I used stamps and markers to create the flowers! This took a lot of time, but I enjoyed the process!

Products Used:

Sorbet Dimensional Paint (GlassVegas GoldFlamingoMermaid)

Metal Effects Dimensional Medium

Flity Stencil

Coloration Spray: Raider

Stamps/Markers: Altenew

Embellishments: Citrus Twist/Pink Paislee, Heidi Swapp 

What is your favorite thing about this layout? I love everything about it! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I inspired you to try one of my techniques from this layout!

ART JOURNAL SPREAD BY NICOLE MARTEL

Good morning everyone. I’ve been getting my hands dirty. I love playing with mixed media products. It really warms my soul. This art journal spread took a long time to create because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the background. I think there’s probably three different colors beneath this spread that I covered up… A bit of gesso will change everything… remember that for your next mixed media project. 

I used Art Anthology’s Coloration Sprays Plush and Sky for the background with some other acrylic paints I had in my stash. I covered the Double Flower stencil on plain cardstock using molding paste. Once the paste was completely dry, I sprayed some Coloration sprays over it and used a baby wipe to blend in the colors a bit.

I colored two wood veneer hearts using a purple marker and the Mermaid Sorbet Dimensional Paint then I added a few layers of the Sorbet Clear Coat Dimensional Paint (Linen) to add some shimmer. It looks so pretty!!!

Here are a few close up photos of the stickers, die cuts and gems.

Products Used: Art Anthology Coloration Sprays (Sky and Plush), Sorbet Clear Top Dimensional Paint (Linen), Mermaid Sorbet Dimensional Paint, Art Anthology Double Flower Stencil ( Patterned Paper/Stickers: Creative Memories, Gems: Pinkfresh Studio, Metal Die: Pinkfresh Studio, Art Journal Canvas Stitched Page and Molding Paste: Bad Girls Couture.

Products Used: Coloration Sprays (Plush, Sky), Double Flower Stencil and Sorbet Linen and Mermaid.

I WAS BORN TO BE WILD MIXED MEDIA LAYOUT

Good morning everyone! I have a fun mixed media layout to share with you! When I started this layout I really did not have anything in mind… so this took me longer than I thought it would. There are lots of layers and colors on this and the timing of it all was so worth it.

To begin, I used three Sorbet Dimensional Paint Mediums (Vegas Gold, Mermaid and Flamingo) to cover a sheet of white cardstock. I started with the Vegas Gold first… Then I applied the Mermaid and then the Flamingo.

Once the paint was completely dry I used the Stencil and white paint to create some circles in the background that did not do too well. I ended up smearing the white into the background to blend the colors a bit. Then I used the Metal Effects Dimension Medium (Silver) and the Lotus Stencil to create some fun textures for the background. Once the Metal Medium was completely dry, I used the Raider Coloration Spray and Lattice Stencil to create some dimonds in the background. Then I splashed some Raider Coloration Spray all over the layout to add some more black to help break up the colors a bit.

Once I was satisfied with the background, I used a few journaling cards, chipboards, jewels, stickers and puffy stickers to embellish the center of the layout.

Products Used:

Lotus Stencil

Lattice Stencil

Sorbet Dimensional Paint: Vegas Gold, Flamingo, Mermaid

Metal Effects Dimensional Medium: Silver

Coloration Spray: Raider

No Patterned Paper, No Problem!

Hey everyone, Suzanne here to share with you a layout that features absolutely no patterned paper! Why yes, it can be done! I created this super simple layout using only cardstock die-cuts and yummy Art Anthology paints!

The background is very easy to achieve. I began by applying Black Leather Jacket Sorbet to the background with a palette knife.

Next, without rhyme or reason, I spread the paint across the page with a brayer; let the background dry and that’s it! The glitter in the paint makes for a perfect backdrop for the stars.

I die-cut several stars using heavy-weight cardstock. Some of the stars I colored simply by misting with Colorations Spray. I painted several of the stars using Sorbet and Velvet paints; for the Velvet painted stars, I added Clear Coat in Dazzle and Splashed. I also stenciled a couple of the stars using the Morse Code Stencil. After all pieces are dried, I assembled the layout! Here are some close-ups!

Although the page has no patterned paper, the AA Paints help bring this layout to life with tons of sparkle!!

Art Anthology Supplies:
Sorbet Paints “Mermaid, Black Leather Jacket”
Clear Coats “Dazzle, Splashed”
Velvet “Beyond the Reef, Fiji”
Colorations “Siesta Key”

Other Supplies:
heavy weight cardstock
