Captured - A Mixed Media Layout

I had so much fun making this mixed media scrapbook page!

I used the 7 Dots Studio Lost and Found collection by DeeDee Catron.  What a fab collection of beautiful designs and colors, perfect for mixed media work!

 Below is what the background looked like before I piled on the layers.  I first adhered a bunch of crumpled and torn doilies.  Then I used a palette knife to apply a layer of gesso followed by some modeling paste through a stencil.

Next came the really fun part of applying lots of fab color!  You just cannot go wrong with Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays.  I'm certifiably addicted to them! After the color, I stamped here and there with a couple of background stamps, and it was finished.

Be You - My Creative Scrapbook

It's Friday, it's Friday, the BEST day of the week!  That's just a silly little song that my little girl and I sing on Friday mornings :) Today I have my 4th layout made with the Hello Gorgeous collection by My Mind's Eye that's featured in the My Creative Scrapbook March Main kit.  This one is really simple.

I smooshed some Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays from my stash onto the background to complement the pink, green, and blues in the kit supplies.  I really like how these colors look together and with the black and white photo.

I used some of the chipboard stickers and this adorable polkadot fabric brad to embellish the page.  I added some pink tangled thread, inspired by Missy Whidden (actually, just about all of my pages are inspired by her these days!  I want to scrap like her when I grow up!), under the brad to add some fun dimension.

I love the pretty floral alphabet stickers that come in the kit.  I stuck them down on one of the journal cards to create the title.  I felt like they blended into the background too much, so I outlined them with a fine tip black marker to make them stand out more.  Plus, I always like black contrast on my pages.

Sorry about the poorly exposed photo but I wanted to show how I simply staggered a few of the journal cards and then topped those off with a couple of the chipboard stickers at the top corner of the photo.

So that's it from me with the My Creative Scrapbook Main kit this month.  I still have lots of kit supplies left over to make some pretty cards!  Be sure to check out the Design Team gallery for tons of inspiration with the March kits.

Have a fabulous, creative weekend!

My #1 Girl - My Creative Scrapbook

I had so much fun creating with the Main kit this month from My Creative Scrapbook.  The My Mind's Eye Hello Gorgeous collection that's featured in the kit is so pretty!

Here's the third layout that I made with the kit:

The background on this is simply some pink Lindy's Stamp Gang spray smooshed onto the cardstock using the packaging technique followed by some splatters of Lindy's in red.

Here are all of the My Creative Scrapbook March kits.  Please check out for more information!
