Hello readers, How was your mother's day? mine was excellent...time well spent with my little family. I received beautiful tokens of appreciation as well as lots of hugs and kisses from the little ones. Moving on to more exciting things...I will be sharing a layout that I made using Mix Media. For this layout I used amazing Pink Paislee House of Three papers, Tim Holtz metals and film strips, 7gypsies clock pieces, Prima and Bazzil flowers, Prima Chipboard, Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Patina, Turquoise and Sand, Distressing Inks, Molding Paste, Magic Mesh for texture, lace, bottle cap, metal heart, pearls, etc.
I began by inking the outside of my paper with Tim Holtz distressing ink I used antiqued linen. After that was dry I glimmer misted with Patina and Sand. Wait for the inks to dry before moving to another color.
Once the glimmer mist dries you can apply molding paste but before it is completely dry create some more texture by using magic mesh and pressing it into the molding paste. Make sure you remove the mesh, then glimmer mist it or apply rub and buff.
Feel free to add flowers, laces and metal pieces to your project. After they are secured apply more molding paste and glimmer mist.
The above close up shows how I created layers. Using lace and molding paste as my base I simply folded a paper flower and applied some molding paste. After that's all dry apply acrylic paint, rub and buff and the film strips.
Georgeous Prima flowers got a little touch up as well, I just added a little Tim Holtz distressing paints and rub and buff. Can you see the texture created by the magic mesh and the molding paste? that's my favorite part, soft and delicate yet it adds an interesting touch.
Just another close up of more layers.
For my tittles after the base was prepared with molding paste, lace and glimmer misted, I adhered the chipboard, more molding paste and more glimmer mist.
I hope you give Mix Media a try and join me, this was so much fun to make I know I will be creating more layouts and projects using Mix Media...so come back soon. Thanks to the girls who always leave me comments and I invite you to do so as well...
