Mixed Media Monday!

Good morning!
I have three amazing mixed media layouts to show you today from three amazingly talented women!

First is Nicole using the Scraps Of Elegance 'Adore' kit to create this bright and beautiful layout

The background was created by using a mix of Distress Stain, Silks, and gesso, as well as mica powder and microbeads, both from the SOE January Color Add-On.
She added a lot of gorgeous flowers on this layout, all from the kit and Floral Add-On.

Next is a striking and dramatic layout from Wilma using the 
Scraps Of Darkness 'Beloved' kit

  She wanted the page to be about love, but no flowers for the boys,
so she chose a more artsy background .

She started with the Graphic 45 Mon amour collection True Love paper from the kit.  She used diluted gesso on both sides.
The Viva Decor Modeling Paste that was in the kit is red, glossy, and shiny, and she combined it with a black from her stash.
With a Tim Holtz stencil, she criss crossed the layers over each other.

Wilma says that the viva paste drys VERY quick!
Which is a benefit when you are in a hurry, but be aware that it is very hard to clean your stencil. Even if you do it right away.
She doesn't care about having the color on the stencil, because once it is dry it wont bleed on future projects.

With the red and grey distress spray, she sprinkled the background.
To lighten the page she also used white and black Dylusions .
Some thread, papers behind the picture, the little wooden hearts (main kit) and the Blue Fern Studio chipboard piece (available in our store) , the sequins.
It is all Scraps of Darkness Beloved kit :) 

And finally we have this sweet and wonderful layout from Annie using the Scraps Of Elegance 'Adore' kit

her background work is gorgeous!  check it out....
