Hello crafty friends !
It’s Mixed Media Monday !
Sophie on the blog and I am sharing a colourful new layout !
I used the August 2021 kits for this. Here is my process:
I started by creating my mixed media background using a thick white cardstock and the three Catherine Pooler Full Size ink pads that we got in the August Color kit: Limoncello, Be Mine and Something Borrowed.
I scraped the pads directly on my page.
Then, I used my brush, added water and mixed the colors slightly, adding a few colourful splatters around them.
I also uses a few leaves from the Prima Marketing Plain Chipboard Laser Cut Flowers (August Embellishment kit) and made them black with an ink from my stash.
I used a photo of Sabrina at a ceramic craft boutique named « Mandala Cafe » ! I thought this was the perfect photo for my page ! I added tissue paper and adhesive foam behind it and placed it crooked on the right side of the layout.
I also added adhesive foam behind my title and most of the hand cut mandalas, and arranged them in clusters around my photo.
I hand wrote my journaling directly on my background with a fine-tip black pen and stamped the date.
Wow ! The bright colors stand out so much on this page ! Very different from my usual go-to pastels !
Here are more close-ups:
I hope you felt inspired by this page today,
Until next time,
