Happy Day

Scrapbook Layout created for Citrus Twist Kits  - HAPPY DAY  -

Hello, hello!

It is time for some Mixed Media!! Nathalie and Amanda with you today bringing you a few ideas on how to incorporate this month's Mixed Media kit into your projects.  So get ready to get inky fingers! First up is Nathalie.

Hello friends!    It is one of my favorite posts of the month, as i get to show you how to mix some beautiful paper and embellishments with a bit of colorful mess, i mean Mixed Media!

The Vicki Boutin Acrylic Pop Paints that are included in the Mixed media kit are silky, highly pigmented and so easy to work with, plus they can easily be mixed with other mediums ( in this case the June 2018 Mixed Media kit).   The following video will show you how to create the background and the stars in this page, enjoy:

How about those stars?!  The soft watercolor look of the background (created by watering down the acrylic paint) forms the perfect setting for the cascade of stars (also created using the mixed media kit and a stamp) Don't worry if you don't have the same stamp i used in the video.  All you need is a simple stamp and black ink.  This will help you break the patterned in color when layering the stars on the page.

Did you catch all the gold foiled elements in this page?! I am working with the Outside Stories Add On kit for this layout, and the ephemera pack that is included (from Heidi Swapp's Hawthorne collection) can be customized with foil.  All the foil pieces are the perfect embellishment in this oh so colorful page.

Mixing all the wood veneer and kraft in the papers and embellishments of the Outside Stories kit into the colorful background tones down the paint, and sort of grounds the colors in the stars.  To finish this page, i added a few stamped sentiments from the Daily Routine stamp set, as well as a few lines of journal..

Totally in love with this page! the colors and textures created with the four paints is amazing, add to that the Outside Stories kit, and it is just perfection.  Remember to check this month's Add On kits,  they are truly amazing this month.

thank you so much for visiting.
