Mixed Media Tuesday and Tip Tuesday???

Good morning everyone!

I am posting Mixed Media Monday on a Tuesday!!!  Yesterday I was gone and was unable to do my regular post and I LOVE to do the mixed media posts so I am going to do it today AND since it is Tuesday I am also doing 'Tip Tuesday!' 
PSA - Yesterday I was doing something that every woman I know hates - I was having my mammogram!  But as you know it is very much needed and could help save your life.  I know they are uncomfortable, and you feel exposed but please ladies do your breast exams and have your mammograms - too many women are losing this battle and I would hate to see any of you suffer through this horrible disease!

Ok onto Mixed Media Tuesday!

These two layouts are real stunners by Lisa Griffith using the Scraps Of Elegance
'Stephanie's Treasure' kit!

She said that had so much fun creating this one and loved how it turned out. As soon as she saw this pretty peach paper called 'Spring Garden 03' by Craft & You, she knew what I wanted to use this vintage beach photo I found on Pinterest.

First she did a lot masking with heavy gesso and then used some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays in peach and bronze, then added the really cool Tim Holtz black rub ons that came in the kit.

When the background was done she added the pretty heart chipboard piece, and then layered on her photos, some flowers, lace, and then lastly some tiny shells that she adhered with clear gel medium.

  now for her second layout.....

This pretty young girl is Lisa's mom when she was in a school uniform!!!

She used the twine and added some cheesecloth under the pretty Prima and Petaloo flowers, and then added a bow made of the ribbon that also came with the kit.  She had heard of Prills but didn't know what they were and now she thinks they are gorgeous and loves the texture that they add, so she used quite a bit of them and some of the little purple gems.

Now I decided to show you two layout by the same designer and using the same kit to show you the versatility of the beautiful Scraps Of Elegance kits! 

Tuesday Tip:
This week Wilmas shares a tip about Glossy accents!

'When you use glossy accents , store it upside down during the crafting. In a empty food container or a cup. This way you don't have to wait until it runs to the tip every time.'

Have a wonderful day ladies!


  1. Two so so beautiful layouts!!! I am not a big vintage fan, but Lisa always manage it to make me LOVE it. The colors, the way of adding a lot of color without making just a mess. Great scrapping lady! :)

  2. Just gorgeous! Lisa always produces such stunners!
