Who is ready to get messy!? Nathalie with you today with a new Mixed Media post, and today's post is a rather colorful one as we are using the Sunshine on my Soul Scrapbook, Patterned paper Play and embellishment kits to create a new page all about creativity.
All the color in the new Paige Evans' Whimsical collection included in the Sunshine on My SOul kits was the inspiration for this page. As soon as i saw all the art supply stickers and embellishments, I knew that i would be using them to documetn a picture of my daughter in one of her creative moments.
To start, i decided to use all the colors of the rainbow in the page. So, i started adding texture using gesso and a stencil to the page, then used a bit of distress Oxide in Black soot and Hickory Smoke - the dark tones are going to make all the colors pop nicely off the page- and to finish added splatters of Heidi Swapp color shine ito the background in a rainbow order.
While the background dried, i create the large title of this page using the December 2017 cut file and one of the word from this month's free Titles cut file. I used papers from the Sunshine on my Soul scrapbook and patterned paper play kits to back the title. Don't you just love the vibrancy of those large letters!!
The picture was kept black and white so that it will pop along with all the colors. To embellish the page, i used all the colorful art supplies in the puffy stickers, chipboard stickers, and ephemera pack included in the Scrapbook and embellishment kits.
To finish the page, i used a combination of the TN stamp and add on stamp sets to add those boxed sentiments using gold ink. The following video will show you how it all came together:
I am in love with this month's Sunshine on my Soul kits, and i hope that you are also inspired to add some color to your background using mixed media.
Remember to check the kits, stamps and cut files at the CTK shop. These are truly gorgeous kits! You can alaways contact me if you have questions on how this all came together.
