Hello – I am not very Bold where it comes to Mixed Media scrapbooking. In fact,I am not brave enough to use all the color sprays and texture mediums that’s so in fashion in the scrap community….But I do love looking at it and drool… A Year or two ago,I got the Sunrise – Sunset paper collection from Prima,in a Kit and this is my version of Mixed Media…
I chose ‘X – Radiant’ for my first layout. I distressed the papers a little bit and ‘stitched’ it back where it had torn. I did some gesso and paint splatters and stamped here and there…I added sewing thread and ‘snap buttons’ and pulled it all together with ‘Sunrise – Sunset’ wood buttons and stickers. The flowers are from Petaloo
I had these beautiful photos from wild flowers from our visit to the desert in bloom back in my home country,South Africa. The plain card stock in the kit was perfect for these. The flowers are from Petaloo and the wood flourish from Kaisercraft.
I loved this lacy paper!!! Perfect for ‘Vintage’ photos… Sunrise – Sunset col ‘Aperture’. It was perfect for this beautiful photo of my Mother- in- Law.I used yellow paint to stamp with in the background, together with gesso, modeling paste and a stencil from Prima. The flowers are from Petaloo and I use the Spellbinders dies for the frames behind my photo.
I used an old paintbrush on this lo….I used gesso,modeling paste and a stencil. I left some paint splatters and stamped here and there….the flowers are from Petaloo and Prima.
‘Grateful for Everyday’
Here I have just let my imagination run wild…I made ‘waves’ with rolled up paper and added some gesso to it…The white mesh was an onion bag recycled…
Using plain Card stock from the kit.I started with a ‘flag’ of Vellum paper. I added stickers from the ‘crystal sheet’, flowers from Prima and Tim Holtz ink.
‘Mother & Grandmother’
I used the ribbon from the kit behind my photo.Added paint and color spray drips on the back ground. The gorgeous Zipper flower is from Prima Sunrise – Sunset col
Again,I used a photo with my Mother-in-Law. To add texture to my paper,I cut slits with my craft knife here and there and added lace and inked the edges. I made paint splatters and used a glass and blue ink to make the circles…
That’s it for now… will continue..
Thanks for looking
Till next time
