Hello Scrappy ladies! Welcome to the SpiegelMom Scraps monthly blog hop with the design team. We have a treat for you this month, we have teamed up with Creative Embellishments and product swapped. We have the amazing chipboard products offered at the Creative Embellishment online shop to play with this month. Their design team as our lovely sequins and Shimmerz products. You are joining me from Marci's Blog, I welcome you to my corner of the internet.
This layout is heavy with mixed media and I love it. I enjoy playing around with different art supplies and developing a unique background. The first element I was certain to use were these amazing chain link heart frames called Chained to You Heart Frames. I have wonderful pictures to scrap from the holidays when my sister visited and they did fit inside these great frames. I cut the photo to fit inside the frames and with the one on the lower left, I even cut out our legs and it made a cool effect.
I started out by adhering Tim Holtz tissue paper in Melange using Tim Holtz Collage medium and a flat paint brush. I then stamped Grunge Stars by Dina Wakley. My next layer was Shimmerz Paint Paste-eez in Lava Flow used through Large Triangles, then Paste-eez in Puttin On the Glitz through a floral Prima stencil.
For added detail I used sequin from My Clementine pack. It is an arrangement of opal white, orange and light blue colored sequins.
I needed another kraft element on my layout, luckily, I had a pack from Amy Tangerine that worked perfectly. So my title pulls in another element of kraft to give the layout some balance in my opinion. I love the mix media on this layout for a grudge kinda of appeal.
