Mixed Media Layout

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Bonjour! Hello! Hello!

Happy Tuesday Everyone! I had the chance to scrap my heart out this weekend, stayed up late, had some crepes I made, and sat and scrapped. I gotta say it felt good scrapping until 2am, I think I am at my most creative then. So its no surprise I wanted to play with some inks, and gesso!

I really love mixed media layouts, I recently started to fall more and more in love with them and I guess I am now hooked! Mixed Media to me means using different mediums to create a piece of art that is truly yours, that media can include, acrylic paint, gesso, modeling paste, molding gel, oil paints etc. So for my layout I used tons of gesso, some cream acrylic paints, and some lovely Glimmer Mist Inks, as well as some October Afternoon Sprinklers, as they call them, such a cute name.

Did you see that scrunchy looking flower? Isn't Prima simply amazing? I really love the colors I achieved with the different mists and inks, it really gives it a warm, Summer feel don't you think? Love the quote as well, super fitting for this layout.

Well I hope I inspired you a bit with this layout, I couldn't wait to share it! I really like how it turned out! OH did you see the masking up there? Yep, love it, and I masked it using gesso, COOOOL! lol

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping by!
