Here we are on day number 3 of this fabulous weekend! The Sparklers and our guests have totally inspired me to try a few new things and I’m just so thankful and thrilled to have them creating with me! Today, we are welcoming the wonderful Bonita Rose to the hop. I cannot wait to see what she created especially for today 🙂 Let’s get today’s party started with the line up!

Jody here again!! For today’s layout I wanted to accent patterned paper with mixed media. I thought this would be a little tricky with this map paper from Fancy Pants Good Fellows collection. I’ve played around the highly technical packaging technique ‘smooshing’ on patterned paper and found that the mixed media isn’t as forgiving as it is on cardstock. The mixed media tends to soak in, like immediately!
So, I decided to let more of the patterned paper show on this layout since it compliments my bike riding theme. I only accented smaller areas and the edges with some Keep Palm & No Yolking Coloringz and added my favorite Chunky Cork Stars! I’m really happy with how this turned out, especially since masculine layouts are not my strong point. I also used some Marmalade Distress Ink to ink up the edges of my layout to really define it.
Here’s a closer look at the edges and the Keep Palm & No Yolking Coloringz.
Thank so much for spending your time with us today!! I hope you’ve enjoyed my layout, featuring some mixed media & Cork!!
