I love dabbling in mixed media elements on my layouts. You may think of going overboard but for me, the wisdom lies in knowing when to stop, when you can take something away instead of adding that one thing, then you know you have created something special that focuses on the photo and the story
This range is perfect for those special memories where you may only have a single photo that you can use enlarged to tell your story.
Adhere two sheets of smooth white cardstock together using double sided tape.
Measure about 5cm (2”) from the bottom edge and add stenciling using modelling paste. Leave the paste to dry.
Use your Kaiser mists and add colour to the stenciled images. I combined brown and black together.
Leave the ink to dry. Adhere strips cut from Buff (reverse) patterned paper down the center of your layout on both sides. I used 3 strips of paper on each side.
Cut out elements from patterned papers to use as a backdrop to your photos. I cut pieces from Bisque, Organic and Raw. Arrange the elements to the left and right side of your 7×5” (18x13cm) photo.
Die-cut some leaves and wood chip from white cardstock.
Use your Kaisermists to add colour to the die-cut pieces. First spray the die-cuts with brown mist and then lightly with black mist. Mist with water to make the ink colours mix together and create a beautiful effect.
Adhere the die-cuts to your layout using gel medium or craft glue. Cut some of the wood chips in half and use both halves on your layout.
Add gel medium to the left and right side of your photo and sprinkle with craft sand. Leave to dry and then shake off the excess.
Cut out butterflies from Buff (reverse) sheet and adhere to your layout as per the sample image.
Use stickers and other embellishments to finish off your layout as desired.
