Mixed Media With Karla – Keepin’ It Real Scraplift

Hi friends! Karla here today with a fun Mixed Media layout! Our theme this week is to scraplift the infamous Missy Whidden! She is so amazingly talented – I was a little intimidated to even attempt this!!

Here’s a look at Missy’s awesome scrapbook layout. You can check it out on Instagram HERE or watch her YouTube process video HERE.

I loved the mixed media circles she layered on, so I decided to try my Distress Paints using the same technique she showed in her video with the Shimmerz Paste-eez (which you can find in the SpiegelMom Scraps Store!!) It was fun to try a few new techniques and step outside my comfort zone! I think that’s important for everyone to do once in a while. I even decided to post a crazy face photo, and this Keepin’ It Real sticker from the Pink Paislee Take Me Away collection was the perfect title ūüėČ and the bright sequins from the¬†Jaded Hearts,¬†Neon Summer¬†and Gotta Love Emoji’s¬†mixes were just the right pop!

I used some Dylusions mists on my background, spraying on a piece of acetate and smooshing it onto my background in blue, green and purple colours. It was great to get them out of the drawer! Since my photos were very neutral I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to use lots of background colours.

I used some Shimelle Starshine stickers and added a bit of thread under my handcut paint blobs. After I first layered on the thread, I realized I had it in too much of a perfect circle, lol, so I had to mess it up a bit!

I layered my photos on some Hazel & Ruby printed tissue paper from my stash and then on top of some plain green tissue paper. I love the bit of texture that gives, and I popped up a few of the paint dabs to give some dimension.

Trendy Tuesday/My girl

 

Good morning everyone!!! I hope your having an amazing 4th of July with your friends and family!! Sarah here this morning with my 1st trendy Tuesday post and as you  have probably heard this weeks theme is emojis!!!

I love emojis, they are just so cute! And my kids know what they are and love to draw them and the oder ones sending me different ones on their phones lol.

I chose to use the Crate paper line, Cute girl for my layout this week. I love all the girly little things you can do with this collection, but with the way I did this layout there wasn’t a lot of room for embellishing.

I went with a quite large emoji for my layout because I knew I wanted to make it itself a shaker pocket. I used one of the cut-files offered from SpiegleMomScraps this month, This is just one of the emojis that there are in the cut-file,But my emoji is how I started my page, other then having my photo already picked out, lol.

  

In my stash I have a bunch of stuff but I have like 3 boxes of clear sheets that were for over head projectors, I dont even know if they use those anymore, lol, but I have a bunch of them. So I cut my emoji out on my Silhouette and placed 2 behind the outer part and started sewing it on my sewing machine. I left a place open big enough for me to pour my Gotta Love Emojis sequin pack is and then finished sewing it up. I placed it on my page where I wanted it to the left because in the picture my daughter was looking in from the right.

After my big smiling emoji was down, I added a few strips of paper to the bottom of my layout and then went to layering papers behind my photo. I put my photo down and pulled out my embellishment pack, along with some of the sticker sheets and started to play a little. I have always loved that little doll from this collection and I thought this was a great layout to use it on! So I added her to the right side of my photo and then layered a few puffy flower stickers and some little hearts. I popped my title under the picture. Then I decided to add a few little banner pieces  and a few hearts to the top left of my layout and a few little word stickers  and more little hearts to the bottom left and was done.

I hope you enjoyed the layout I made today, I loved playing with the emojis and I hope you play along too!! Happy 4th to everyone again!!

Sketch it out Saturday-Rad Dude

Good morning everyone!! Sarah here this morning to share with you a new layout I made using some pretty sequins and awesome little corkys!

 Here is the sketch I used for this layout, this is another old one I had drawn up, hope you like playing with it!

This month were sticking in with the theme of the 80’s & 90’s. So today I using my title to go along with the theme. Thus the Rad Dude! lol.

When we were kids we use to say Rad all the time, lol, I feel like I’m making myself sound old lol. But I was a kid in the 90’s and I use to love saying rad!

I grabbed my Crate paper, Cool kid collection, (its been sitting in my stash and I haven’t touched it yet, well untf my layout I started layering behind my photo. And then it was to my Silhouette I went. I cut out my title and some fun little star circles and a line of them to layer around.il now!) Then I grabbed some Bazzil cardstock from the Spiegelmom store and started cutting away at my papers. I knew I wanted to fallow the layout pretty close or possibly to a T. So I chose my paper for the bottom and cut it down, and decided I wanted the top strip to be the same, so I cut that down too and put them in place.

I did all my cut-files on white cardstock too, so that I could water color them like I did my title or back them with colorful and patterned papers. With my title I sprayed it down with water and grabbed my water color pallet and started adding black watercolor to the letters. I sprayed it here and there and dabbed it to get the effect I wanted, a little wore look.

I put my title where I wanted it, to the right of the photo and started playing with the embellishments! I started layering some of the cardstock stickers, tags and my cut-files. I got some great washi from the shop too, He Zhi Color tape. I added a strip of that in a orange-red color and then added a cardstock sticker over it.

And then it was for Sequins and Cork!!! I love these colors and the texture that the sequins and cork add to a layout!

I added a bunch of the little shooting cork stars and then broke into my Neon Summer and Gotta love Emojis sequins. I used the bright orange sequins from Neon Summer and the black sequins from the Gotta love Emojis. After that I added a little black watercolor splatters and my layout was done!

I hope you liked this layout and I hope to see you play along with the sketch too!! Remember to tag us on instagram so we can see what you create!!
