I am back today with my second inspiration project for April on 2Crafty Chipboard Blog.
Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout - "Adventure"
I love nature and love to create nature and travel based themes.
The picture in this layout was clicked on my visit to Wales last summer.
For this Layout I used bubble clumps and some foliage chippies, along with the title. The paper I used from Maja Design and did my background with a coat of white gesso over the design area using an unused smart card, followed by a stencil pattern with sand texture paste. Then I used spray from Lindy's Gang to add color and finally background stamping and some splatters.
Next I prepared my chippies. I embossed the bubble clumps and the title "Adventure" with embossing powder from Lindy's and then slightly distressed the edges that I always love to do. I feel scrapbooking is not complete without some amount of distressing.
For the Foliage chippies, first I applied a layer of white gesso with a sponge and then I used Finnabair's metallic acrylic paint "Golden Moss", just roughly applied with my finger.
I did not cover the leaves generously with paint. Finally, I distressed the leaves to make
them look rustic.
After I was done working on my chippies, I moved on with the layering of collage elements starting with some scrap pieces of papers along with the bubble chippies, flowers, foliage chippies and metal embellishment. To be honest, I find the layering and composing takes most of the time while designing a scrapbook layout. Once I was happy with the composition, I moved on with my favourite part of adding Art stones and micro beads as a final touch.
To finish off, I added highlights of white gesso and some more stamping where needed.
