Hey there Crafty Friends!! Today I got a little something different... I love mixed media!! I love the way you can take different medium and mesh it to create something simply beautiful or something over the hill extraordinary!!
And today I'm expanding my Mixed Media Journey with Bella Blvd.!! Sponsors of Team eBrush for the month of September!!
Bella Blvd - Just Add Color , Newsflash, Treasures & Texts, Daily Details, Peep Strandz, Orange Little Bits, Doodads Guacamole
Tim Holtz Stencils- Measured, Splatters
Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities- Grand Labels One
Sharpie Markers- Blue and Navy Blue
Blue Painters Tape
Sequins (Virginia Turtle)
Diamond Glaze (Judikins)
I started off by ebrushing my Passcode paper by Bella Blvd. with a bright blue Sharpie marker.
Then I simply ebrushed a dark/navy blue ring in the center of that.
Then I added my blue scalloped border from Bella Blvd's Treasures and Texts stickers.
I wanted to add some texture to my layout. So I taped my layout to my work surface to help prevent warping and bowing.
Then I added modeling paste with a palette knife and my Splattered and Measured Tim Holtz stencils.
And while that was drying...
I die cut my my Bella Blvd Dotty paper with the largest die from my Spellbinders Grand Labels One set using my Cut'n'Boss.
Then I ran the die cut piece through my Xyron Creative Station for durability and adhered it to the base of my layout. Next I took my 4"x6" photo and matted it onto a 4.25"x 6.24" piece of Bella Blvd. Newsflash paper. Then ran my matted photo once again through my Creative Station.
Once my photo was adhered to my layout I embellished it using more stickers from the Bella Blvd. Treasure and Texts sheet. With my parvy circle punches I cut various circle in different sizes to add to my layout. I tied everything in by scattering and adhering Guacamole Doodads across the page. I also added words from the Orange Little Bits stickers to my biggest circle.
I thought using the words "goofy boy moments" went perfectly with this picture of my son with his tongue hanging out.
Lastly I used my dimensional glue to adhere sprinkles of sequins onto my layout.
And here is my finished layout...
