STILL I RISE

Good morning! I have a new project I am sharing today using a variety of mixed media mediums from Art Anthology. Most people are intimidated by mixed media products, but it’s not too scary! Today, I am going to share with you how simple it can be!

When I created this layout I wanted to create something, but I didn’t want to spend a lot of time on it. I just felt like doing something fun. To begin, I trimmed my white cardstock to measure 4″x8″. I am loving this size! This size works well for when you only have one photo to scrapbook.  Then I sprayed the Sky Coloration Spray all over and let it dry a bit. Then I tapped a little bit of the Raider Coloration Spray all over the spread.

I grabbed a stencil that I wanted to use and applied the Patina Teal Velvet Dimensional Paint over the stencil, careful not to let the stencil move. When applying this  medium, it is best to move the palette knive from top to bottom so the paint does not smear beneath the stencil.

I had some smears, but I can live with it…

A lot of the stencil got covered up, but I only wanted a few of the circles to show so it worked out.

I used a marker to color the wood veneer heart and then added some Linen Sorbet Dimensional Paint to make it shimmer.

I love this writing from a book I read… I held onto it so I could include it in a layout… Sooo true… It says, “Women will crush you, you know…I suppose everybody, but women always seem to get back up… Women are always still standing.” I love it.

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!

I LOVE YOU BUNCHES

Hi everyone. I have a lovely layout to share with you of two of my favorite people. I really like this picture of Edward and Aunt Katie so decided to play with this layout a bit! 

To begin, I sprayed the Sky and Plush Coloration Sprays onto white cardstock. Once the ink was dry, I added a few more sprays of the Sky Coloration Sprays. I really wanted the blue to show in the background.

I stamped the Love You Bunches flower image from Trinity Stamps onto the layout and then colored the leaves and flowers using a variety of markers. I like how little pops of the coloration sprays can be seen on the flowers. It’s soooo pretty!

I added a few embellishments from Citrus Twist Kits and Elle’s Studio to complete the layout. I went back and forth on what embellishments I wanted to use. 

I ended up changing up a few of the embellishments and adding a few things here and there. You will see that in the video! This really was a lot of fun to create. I was off work today and I just wanted to create something pretty.

Here is the video! Thanks so much for stopping by today!

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
