My self Mukta and I am here on Prika’s for an small mixed media layout today. Its 5″ by 7″ (A7) in size and so if you want, you can even make it into a card by adhering the layout to a standard A7 card base. This project is shabby chic…which is my favourite style and has some mixed media work as well.
Step:1. I began with the script paper from the ‘A true Love Story’ paper pack, 1 shabby black printed sheet from the Eno greeting Retro Series bought from the store a while back and 1 Red card stock sheet. I cut 5″ by 7″ piece from the red card stock, 4 4/3″ by 6 3/4″ from the black printed sheet and 4 1/2″ by 61/2″ from the script paper. I distressed the edges of all the 3 pieces.
Step:2. I adhered the black paper to the red card stock and kept it aside. To add more strength to my script paper, I matted it with white card stock which was cut to the same size and distressed it again. Then did a little stencil work on this piece using the Inclined Dots stencil and Little Birdie’s Mixed Media Paste (White). I dried it with my heat tool and spritzed a little colour on my panel. I used Colour Splash- Hot Pink and Paprika. Love the way it blends and creates depths. Then, I added a little foam tape to the back of this panel and mounted it on the base I made earlier.
Step:3. Then, I started to play with flowers and embellishments. I gold heat embossed a Chipboard frame and added it to the panel along with some flowers using Silicon Glue. I also added some Beige cotton thread to create more texture.
Once this was ready, I dry brushed Gesso on the flowers to tone it down a little and added white acrylic colour splatters to the entire layout. The sparkly touches came from Dazzle Cocktail in 3 shades — Manhattan, Cosmopolitan and Red Chilli. Love the way it catches the light. I finished with 2 little fussy cut hearts covered with dazzle Cocktail sparkle and the sentiments are actually cut out from a magazine which I matted on white card stock. Here are few pictures of the complete look….
