Good morning everyone!
I hope you all that celebrate it had a wonderful Easter!
Today I am excited to share a few layouts that are guaranteed to inspire you
if you love mixed media or if you love layers of lusciousness!
First up are two from Lisa Griffith
There is so much to look at!
She loved the metal flowers and medallions that came with the kit. She altered the beautiful Blue Fern Studios chipboard frame with a coat of gesso and then stamped it lightly with black ink.
She used the 7Dots Studio 'Thoughts Keeper' stamp set which matched perfectly with the patterned paper then added some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.
She started with the Prima paper in March's Scraps of Elegance kit called 'Forever' from the 'Timeless Memories' collection which already has a dark ancient stone looking pattern to it and decided she was going to go with the feel of the paper and try something with a lot of texture, like an old peeling plaster wall, and a really masculine theme. She decided to use a Blue Fern Studios chipboard piece that looks like a round medallion so used that first as a stencil with some heavy gesso to create some patterns around the page , and then embossed it in copper and used it to add interest underneath my flowers.
She used some of her favorite Lindy's Stamp Gang mists in blue, bronze, brown, and black with a paintbrush, and the Prima 'Two' and 'Dot Grunge' stamp that came with the kit.
She used Gold Mica Powder
and she loves how it shimmers in the sunlight.
This is a photograph of her Grandfather George (second from left) with his fellow RAF servicemen during World War II, and the inspiration behind this grungy mixed media gorgeousness...
Now lets look at the luscious layers from Tracey's gorgeous layouts
First up is a layout inspired by the March Inspiration board. One of the pictures featured a cluster of hearts that ended up becoming this trio of stars:
The kit included some fun copper steampunk shapes and she added the lovely Renea's butterflies from the Scraps of Elegance kit.
Next up is this beautiful layout
'Time is not measured....'
The kit included mica tiles, which she had not worked with before. She peeled apart the layers until they were pliable, then colored them with a mix of warm toned alcohol inks. She ran them through her die cutter with a fall leaf die and used them to back her flowers. Aren't they amazing?!
She likes how they flowed with a favorite fall pic of her daughter. There are lots of journaling slips and such in the kit so she cut one down for her title.
Thanks for stopping by!
