Hi Everyone, this is Niki here today and I have a new layout for Mixed Media Monday. Today I’m focussing on the October Color Kit. There is a process video for this layout too that can be viewed at the end of this post.
I started off by experimenting with the three Lindy’s Sprays. I wanted to spray them directly onto my layout in order to get a different effect than the packaging technique, which is how I usually apply my mixed media. I sprayed the gold and the pink but unfortunately the purple one wouldn’t spray. So I applied the purple colour with the packaging technique instead. So I actually ended up with two different paint effects on the background of my layout, which added interest.
I then set about back filling one of the white die cuts that came in the October Color Kit. I choose the word ‘sweet’ and filled each letter with a different colour from the Amy Tangerine Slice of Life Paper. I left the die cut itself white in colour. I tore the edges of my background, backed it with the Slice of Life paper and added some black machine stitching.
I arranged my photos and my title onto my layout. I then coloured one of the die cut arrows with the gold Lindy’s spray and left that to one side to dry. I also wanted to use the die cut hearts that were in the Color Kit. I stuck these onto my layout raised up on foam pads. I then painted them whilst they were on my layout as I figured this was the safest way of doing so! I painted them in a color-on-color fashion.
Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed this layout. There is a process video too that you can view below. Happy scrapping xxx
