Welcome back to The Aviary!
Amanda here today sharing a super fun layout with you all!
This is my final guest designer post here at The Aviary,
so I wanted to share a mixed media scrapbook layout!
Hope you like it.....
"Treasured Memories" layout
I love this! So bright, fun and oh-so-cool too!
Lots of mixed media juiciness here! & how cool are those stamps?!!!
So do you want to know how I created this lil number?
Well, it's so easy I can guarantee you'll be giving it a go!
On white 12 x 12in cardstock
position a stencil/template and apply texture paste.
Heat gun dry, then colour with Tropical 4pk Gelatos, as shown above.
Activate gelatos with water (paintbrush or spray bottle works well)
& adhere chipboard elements.
Coat chipboard thoroughly with gelatos, and this time activate with a coloured misting spray.
Allow colours to run!!!
Once dry, commence the stampy inky fun!
For boldness & a super striking effect,
I used a black permanent ink for all my stamp work on this layout.
I started by stamping my background with Art Textures Stamp Set in random repeated patterns
(as shown above)
Because this page is all about my two darlings
- my lil prince and princess -
I couldn't help but use the Crowns Stamp Set.
This stamp embellishes my page perfectly! Too cute!
I then randomly stamped both the heart stamps from the
Say It - Thanks Clear Stamp Set.
As you can see, it really adds to the layout.
Next, I attached my chipboard framed photo, and embellished it with a few blooms.
I used a lil black gesso on my title, and attached to page.
For my final finishing touches I added a few strands of frayed muslin.
That's how I created this super cute, inky, messy, fun layout!
Told you it was super easy!
Hope you'll try it today!
