Here is my layout :
 

As you probably already know, I always put a coat of Clear Gesso on all my layouts first.  The brand really does not matter, as long as it is Gesso !

 

After putting the Gesso I decided to use another paper on the background… so I put Gesso on that too !

 

Did some tearing on top and bottom, love how that looks !

 

I used a stencil from my stash with Crakle Paste but it can be any Modeling Paste, Heavy Gesso, Heavy Gel, whatever you have that has texture.

 

 

Once everything is dry, I can start playing with my watercolors !  I am trying to match the colors of the papers 🙂

I did the same thing with the Chalk included in the kit and mixing it with a little bit of water.

 

 

Here I used the chalk again but this time on the chipboard for an opaque look.

When it was almost dry, I took the same watercolor and put a little bit on the chipboard.

 

 

I really love the result ! I cut the chipboard into little peaces so they would show all around my layout. I place the peaces where I wanted them and put glue right away.

Here I decided to keep a few peaces for another layout.  On top of the chipboard, I used one of the die-cuts from a 12×12 paper and added cheese cloth. I also used the stamp from the kit on top and bottom.

 

 

I used watercolor again but on the flowers so they could be a little bit Pink.  I had previously cut out the clocks and the butterflies from the Vintage Ephemeras and used them around the photo.  Here you can see I am applying Stones with Gel Medium which I use as glue.

Here you can see the final result with the pearls 🙂

 

Here is a title from a previous kit :

“La Vie” Layout with Rae

Hello, and Happy Saturday!

Today I am sharing a layout I made using the April scrapbook kit.

I kept this layout pretty simple- the 49 and Market papers in the kit are gorgeous, and I really didn’t want to take away from that, so I kept to the basics with the layering and distressing.

I bought some of the 49 and Market elements on my own, so which you can see in the closeup below- the layer under the paper mat, and the white rose corner piece sticking out from under the layers.

I added some flowers from my stash to add variety and coordinate with the papers. I also added a piece of scrap paper from the kit paper under the “La Vie” Prima Memory Hardware clioche embellishment.
I also tucked in some sisal throughout the flower clusters.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today!

“Find Your Path” Mixed Media Canvas with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Have you seen our mixed media kit this month? It’s full of wonderful products including the new tissue paper and texture pastes from Prima Marketing! Take a look:

 

And, here’s what I came up with using the kit along with some items of my own.

Here’s how I created the background:

I ripped up some of the tissue paper and adhered it randomly with 3D Gloss Gel that I added to the canvas as a glue, then once again over the tissue paper to seal it.

Next, I added some of the cream texture paste to the canvas everywhere that the tissue paper was not, adding some to the edges of the tissue paper as well.

I added the cool grey and moss texture pastes as well.

I painted the Prima resin frame with the black gesso, and once dry, I also dry brushed the frame with some of the moss texture paste.

I painted the Prima resin frame with the black gesso, and once dry, I also dry brushed the frame with some of the moss texture paste.

In this close up, you can see how the cream texture paste is able to blend perfectly with the tissue paper.

I added some flowers and gears from my stash.

This closeup shows one way to “blend” the texture pastes- the colors go together perfectly. The bee is a piece of junk jewelry I had.

Ensemble by Annie Carignan

Hello !

Here is another layout made with the Scrapbook Kit for April !  I really had fun with it because I have made such different projects with the same kit ! Possibilities are endless !

My inspiration for this one came from the Pink flowers at the bottom of this paper.  I knew I wanted Fuchsia  but I had to change the color of the flowers. I took the gold spray from the kit and used it on the flowers.  I decided to add more flowers from my stash to add more color.  I used some watercolour and the spray also all around the layout.

I really love how it turned out with the chipboard and the embellishments.  Here are some close-ups :

Mixed Media Monday

Hi everyone, Kim here with another edition of Mixed Media Monday. Today I am going to be sharing my project created with the Mixed Media kit. I also have a video to share of the process.

This month’s card kit features Prima Marketing  texture paste and this cute 4×4 canvas. Also included is a resin frame, black gesso and the brand new Finnabair rice paper sheets.

Here is the kit:

I love the texture paste, and I have worked with them  before. This was a fun, but messy project to create.

Here are some close ups of the project:

I added some flowers, resin and lace from my stash.

Here is the video process on how I created this and how to use the texture paste:
