Hello everyone and happy Monday !

Sophie here with you and I am sharing my step by step process for this mixed media layout today !


Main page


I used the beautiful July 2020 kits for this page.

I started by playing with the Aqua Marine Embellishment Mousse from the Color Kit. I mixed it with water on a plastic sheet and applied it with the packaging technique on both sides of my white cardstock.




Then, I used the Here and Now Dear Lizzy patterned paper called “Hot Hot Hot” for my background. I cut both sides and used a scalloped border punch, and added white gesso to its center.




I applied textured paste through the Echo Park Paper Summertime 6×6 Stencil called Sunkissed Spots, let it dry, and then applied a mix of colors from the April 2020 Color kit: the Prima Marketing Art Philosophy Liquid Watercolor Honey and Blush.








I stitched down that paper to my white cardstock with white thread.




I used one of the numerous gorgeous July Subscriber  Hip Kit Cut files named Pool Day. I cut the title, the sunglasses and the water drops on white textured cardstock. I backed the title cut file with two Pocket Life cards, and used a mix of the Prima Marketing Art Philosophy Honey Liquid Watercolor and the two Embellishment Mousses from the July Color Kit to paint the word “Day”, the sunglasses and the water drops with it. I love the subtle addition it gives to them.




Then, I started to embellish my page. I fussy cut a few tropical leaves out of the Dear Lizzy Here and Now patterned paper “High Five” and used enamel dots (July Main Kit) and a few Simple Stories Chipboard Stickers (July Embellishment Kit) to create a little cluster on the right lower corner of my photo.




I added layers of patterned papers and Pocket Life cards under my photo, as well as tissue paper and adhesive foam. I also rose my cut files with adhesive foam for more dimension and interest.

Finally, I wrote down my journaling directly on the layout and added the date.

Here are more close-ups:
