Mixed Media layout ‘My Boys’ for Memory Maze

Hello crafty friends, I am here with a mixed media layout for you today using a number of fun ways to add to the background of your scrapbook layouts or memory keeping formats.

myboys

The background of this 12X12 inch layout was created with acrylic paints, printing with the 6 inch round gel plate and distress crayons. To create a watercolour affect, the crayons are applied to the background page and ‘activated’ with a wet paint brush. For this layout, I have allowed them to drip off the page for additional texture.

I stamped onto the background using the Distress Crayon to colour the stamp. I used Darkroom Door, kaiser and Memorymaze background stamps.

The layout was finished off by some marks with my Posca Paint pens, and background script stamping (Kaiser) with black ink.

The chicken wire chipboard pieces are from Memorymaze and have been coated with Finnibair metallic wax paste. The shimmer this wax provides is awesome!

The chicken wire chipboard comes in a larger size, 12×12 and a 150mmx150mm piece as shown here. Black stencilling with acrylic paint was added for contrast. The layout was completed with a doodled border using a black fineliner. If you like this layout, I’d appreciate you leaving a comment below.

XOXO for Memory Maze Lasercuts

Hello crafty friends, I am here with another 6×8 inch scrapbook layout using some Memory Maze acrylics, chipboard, stamps and stencil.

This layout is of my younger son cuddling our puppy – it’s just adorable and I wanted the photo to be the main focus of the layout with a subtle but effective background. I used a brayer to create the various colours in the background, taking the palette from the photo – mainly reds with a bit of blue. I then used Memory Maze rubber stamps coloured with Posca paint pens to stamp on the background.

The title was also coloured using a white Posca paint pen. I added some stencilling with black paint to the layout using the Noughts and Crosses mini stencil.

I finished the layout with adhering the photo and heart acrylic embellishments. I love how the red hearts compliment the colours in the photo.

Warrior Card for Scrapping Fun Kits

Hello crafty friends, I am pleased to bring you another project using the Scrapping Fun Kits’ May Fundraising kit. Let’s take a look;

I fussy cut one of the butterflies from the kit and adhered it to the cars. I also applied some Dylusions paint through some punchinella to give the background some darker contrast.  The wooden veneer word ‘Warrior’ was adhered and the card front mounted on black cardstock to finish off the card.<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CuQQ8JxDItU/WwEBp_oEbAI/AAAAAAAABTA/HlbKdJfTbw4qCoHKmZnhtXU9vKnl-IsngCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/card3.jpg&quot; imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-CuQQ8JxDItU/WwEBp_oEbAI/AAAAAAAABTA/HlbKdJfTbw4qCoHKmZnhtXU9vKnl-IsngCPcBGAYYCw/s400/card3.jpg&#8221; />

The background for this card was created using Ken Oliver’s Color Burst pigment powders. Spritz the cardstock with water and apply a small amount of powder. The explosion of colour is just amazing to watch. This needs to be dried quickly and well.

Using gel medium, I adhered some of the tissue paper from the kit to the background, layered with some of the kit’s gorgeous butterfly washi tape.
