Hello, My Creative Scrapbook friends! Yvette here and I'm so excited to share this beautiful mixed media page with you today. Every once in awhile I like to get messy and challenge myself to create a mixed media background. Included in this month's main kit is a flower stamp as well as a circle stencil, I decided to mainly use the stamped flowers as well as a few die-cut pieces as my only source of embellishments for my page.
Gather my supplies.....
I started the layout off by creating a watercolor effort on the background, using various shades of blue, orange and yellow. I mixed the Gelatos with a little water onto a piece of plastic packaging and applied it using the 'kissing' technique...(gently kiss the packaging to your cardstock)
I keep building layers of colors, working in a diagonal design until I was happy with the end results.
Here you can see, I also used a small water brush to move the colors around a bit. Which created some movement and interest on my page.
I then stamped the flower image multiple times on some white cardstock, using charcoal ink and fussy cut.
Next, I applied gesso, using a palette knife through the circle stencil.
Once everything was dry, I decided to add a few stamped flowers over the top of the paint using the charcoal ink.
Some machine stitching in black was added of texture and interest.
Once my background was done, I was ready to start embellishing using the fussy cut stamped flowers.
A phrase found on one of the cutout cards was fussy cut to create a title.
A few die-cut vines and flower shapes was add to the layout to finish it off.
I hope you felt inspired today and if you're not a subscriber yet, give it a try. The kits are all so beautiful and you will not regret it!!!!
