Hello crafty friends,
Sarah here with you with a mixed media layout using Just Add Paper Past Kit Bits, mainly from the Peaches and Cream kit and the gorgeous D-lish Scraps 'Crosshatch' stencil. The full range of stencil that can be purchased instore can been seen here. The crosses on this layout were also from a mini stencil that was included exclusively in a past Just Add Paper kit. A subscription to the Just Add Paper kits is a great way to collect embellishments but also those exclusive products, such as the mini stencils that are not sold seperately. For some of the past kit bits, you can click here to see what is still available in store.
The background for this layout was actually a sheet of cardstock that I was adding bits of paint too over time - the pink Dylusions paint was spread from a previous project, the stencilled crosses were using up some paint I had used (don't like wasting anything!) and the black splatters were also using up paint from a previous layout where I had gotten too excited with the quantity. This photo of my mum and oldest son, taken many years ago now on the day of his baptism was perfect for this page as it was a black and white print. It went well with the colourful, busy background. The patterned paper it is backed on to was from my stash.
Lets take a closer look at some of the embellishments used....the wooden title 'Adore you' is propped up by glue dots to give some dimension. The flowers and sequin bow are a nice touch to the layout.
The Crosshatch stencil was used with Colour Blast 'tangerine' paste which picked up on the colours of the embellishments.
Thanks for joining me and see you again later in the month.
