Sweet Happy Day by Niki Rowland for Mixed Media Monday

Sweet Happy Day Niki Rowland Hip Kit Club October Amy Tan Slice of Life set

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.
