Mixed Media Scrapbooking with Nathalie

Hi there!

Nathalie with you today with a new scrapbook layout.   I don't know  about you, but this month's kits and stamps are so versatile that all it took was a bit of mixed media to pull this page together:






I picked the new Maggie Holmes - Sunny Days - Acrylic paint set from the CTK shop cause i knew they would easily combined with all the papers from this month's kits.  For this page, i used the blue and teal paint to create the background of the page.





Once the background dried, i used an edge punch (Scallop lace from EK Tools) to create two strips of paper from the Add-on kit.  Since my daughter is wearing blue in the picture, i chose to use colors that match those tones.   Once the strips were stitched to the page, it was all about layering papers from the Make It a Venti and add on behind the picture.





To soften the blue tones of the page, i chose to bring a little bit of pink details in the fussy cut flowers and butterflies (add on kit).  Then used embellishments from the Add on Kit and cut apart elements to create clusters around the picture.




To finish the page, i combined stickers from the add on kit and the Make it A Venti Alphas as well as some stamping using blue ink and this month's Add on Stamp.  The following video will show you how it all came together.







Though the mixed media is just peaking from behind all the layers of paper and embellishments, i love how it sets the mood for the page.   Remember you can always contact me if you have questions, and stop by the Citrus Twist Kits shop to check the kits and all the coordinating goodies that arrive each month.

XO
