Mixed Media Layout

Hello everyone!!! I am so happy that I am now part of the very first Creative Team of the Paper Curves UAE, a UAE based online craft store and this is my first post for them. I am really excited to be part of this team and have created a mixed media layout using the beautiful products I received in my kit.


The pretty flowers are from Prima Marketing and the beautiful chipboard pieces are from 49 and Market - Happy Moments white, which I have heat embossed using holographic embossing powder. I love how the circle piece acts as a frame around the picture.


(Can you see how gorgeous these heat-embossed 'happy moments' look? :)




I did some random stamping using 49 and Market's stamp Gabi's Crackle Texture using black Archival ink. I feel this stamp set is perfect to add fun crackles to your projects.


I have also used different mediums like crackle paste, microbeads, lindy's sprays gesso and Finnabair's acrylic paints for all the textures.



I started with a 12 x 12 patterned paper, after adhering it on a chipboard, applied clear gesso all over it, dried it and then applied a thin layer of white gesso leaving out some areas. To create my background, I added white crackle paste through stencils then stamped over it with Gabi's crackle texture stamp set on different parts of the layout.

I, then, gathered different mediums and embellishments to go with my design.

Next, I used lindy's sprays and finnabair's acrylic paint for some colors, kept adding   gesso and drying these until I was happy with the colors (I added white gesso with pink acrylic paint for a soft look)

Finally, I embellished the layout with the beautiful flowers, heat embossed chipboard pieces, photos with the circle frame and splatters of pink, white and blue colors all over it :)



I hope you like my layout :)
