Spread your Wings mixed media layout using lots of paste to make the texture and lots of colour.
Hi Lorna here.
- Ah my first page in a while and just paper apart from a bit of lace and a bramble fox title.
The papers are 13arts vintage summer.
I used a leaf stencil and freyed burlap distress ink on my base cardstock.
I fussy cut one of the sheets for the flowers, but as borders rather than individually and layered with my photo.
I cut and distressed the papers and layered using foam pads and gel medium.
Finally, i tucked in some lace , added my title and finished with some splattering…..as ya do lol
Today a bit of a different layout – I am playing with clay and paint on my page
I made the pumpkins, leaves and acorns from clay and then painted them. You could try this paper clay
or modeling material from Prima Marketing to make your own.
I mounted my photo onto some of the cork sheet from my recent kit, which you can request in the lucky dip bags. I then tore another sheet from the paper range a big bigger than my photo and mounted it.
The photo mat was mounted using 3d foam gel and 3d gel glue to give them a bit of height off the page.
I took my title from a Tim Holtz phrase book (we have a few different ones in store) and mounted them onto card and arranged using 3d foam pads. I covered my title and photo and then splattered using some watered down bronze Prima Metallique paint. The paint can also be requested in the lucky dip kits and found in the Vintage Romance kit
I hope you like my project and see you again soon. Here are some close ups.
All the products i used are available from Thompsons craft supplies.
Using the 13arts grungy wall papers-Damaged for my back ground.
I toyed with adding to to it but the paper was so nice on its own it had everything it needed so i decided to leave it alone.
I added some of the cork, a bit to mount my photo on one corner and then a torn piece as my base.
I used another paper from the 13arts paper range this time from the Summer Rhapsody set– Rose rhapsody, i fussy cut some of the roses, they matched my back ground sheet perfectly.
I added some mdf leaves and my title from the creative embellishments range also from Louise, all painted in Fabrika Decoru shabby velour paints in vintage green, i inked the title a little with black.
I layered all my pieces around my photo using 3d foam pads and 3d gel and then added some paper flowers and some sequins here and there around my central design.
Lastly i splattered using watered down prima metallique paint-steampunk copper, i covered my photo while i did my splattering.
I am addicted to notebooks, i just love making them, this is a ready made notebook that i have decorated the cover.
using some of my latest kit from Thompsons craft supplies
Using the 13arts Grungy walls papers and some other items from Louise’s shop, the leaf stencil, the distress ink sprays and micro beads.
I’ve really had fun playing with my Halloween kit from Louise at Thompson craft supplies
The fun papers and all the ephemera made it very easy to create,
this time its a mini album, about 8″ x 8″
all the papers and other ephemera are all from a Halloween kit. These is more in the kit section. You can also have one put together just for you, just give Louise a budget and some ideas of your taste and she will do the rest. See our lucky dips for more details.
made from scratch no base book, the base is some cardboard from a packing box from work, folded into shape.
scored and folded card make the inside spine where i have then fixed my pages, couple are fold out pages to add interest and extra scrapping space.
lots of fussy cutting and layering on the cover with patterned papers layered onto the black cardstock which gives a great frame to each page.
added texture from the hessian, ribbons are art grit make it a very tactile cover.
oh and don’t forget the splattering!!
