Welcome to the Bramble fox blog today! I'm so happy you stopped by. I'ts Josefine here to talk about this Spring Time""mixed media layout.The intention was to create a Spring happy feeling!
I took a white cardstock sheet 12x12 and I started stamping a large butterfly. I stamped the butterfly with distress Oxide. The color I used is "worn lipstick." I put the ink on my large butterfly stamp and spray a little water on it to create a watercolor look on the background.
I take my brush and with some water I let the color fade.
I mix some distress oxide ink with some water and make watercolor splashes with my brush for a more festive look.
I placed some yarn on my mixed media background and on top of that I placed my photo. But first I cut some design paper to size and place it behind the photo. This way I create more layers in my layout.
Now I start decorating this Spring layout. I cut out some twigs and leaves and place them around the photo. I cut some flower petals from the design paper using a metal dies and curled the petals. I glued the petals together to create a 3D flower. I make three flowers (light blue, light green and light yellow) and give them a nice spot on the layout.
For the title I use the beautiful perspextives "Spring Time" Love the yellow color so much! It's a great addition to my layout. I also use the soft pink butterflies perspextives on this layout.
Then I decorate the layout with some die-cuts and wood veneer. With my sewing machine I stitched the borders.
I love how my layout turned out.
I hope you got some great ideas and wish you a very happy and creative day!
Hope to see you again next time!
