Hello girls, Lisa here to share another page created with the
May kit from Scraps of Elegance called 'Mix'd Media.
I figure there's two ways to go with these gorgeous Blue Fern Studios papers; either go light and let the papers themselves really shine, just like I did on my last page with this kit, or to go really bold and crazy with the inks, which is what I did here :).
This page was looking really dull and I wasn't happy with it at all, and it almost landed in the trash, but I decided to go nuts with some inks and get colorful by adding lots of 'Vintage Photo' ink to the background and then I added some watercolors in teal and green to add another dimension, and in the end, I loved it.
So if you're ever in the same boat, just think: what have you got to lose? Try going bold with some different colors and you just might be surprised :)
To find our kits online please go here,
there are so many many possibilities with our kits, and they sell like hotcakes!
Here are a few details:
I used the Kaisercraft stencil and the textured sand paste on my background and it turned out so pretty, especially if you rub a little white gesso over it with your fingers after your inks have dried,
it really brings out the pattern of the stenciling.
I also used the Blue Fern Studios chipboard that came with the kit,
and I added a few more pieces from my stash.
And what's a vintage layout without flowers?! I also used some pretty Prima blooms from the Floral add On.
See you soon,
