Playing with Mixed Media | The Paperie
The Paperie is my local scrapbooking store (LSS). Each month they put off many classes but one that I often look forward to is with Cathie Reed from With Coffee in Hand. She has been busy on Instagram playing in her art journal so be sure to check her out.
During the two hour class we played with mixed media. Something I love to do but don't always have the time to take out all those products.
Again, I am continuing my quest to finish last December by the end of October. This doesn't mean I am done 2015 at all. In fact... I am not even close. However, it does mean that I have a big piece of that puzzle completed. My first layout is a combination of embossing enamel, Dina Wakely paint, Prima Colour Blooms and beads adhered with 3D gloss. This gold layout matched the photo perfectly and looked very similar to Cathie's layout - why change a great thing?
In my second layout, my friend, Sara Case Strickland from Sara Things allowed me to use her feather stencil. Again, using Colour Blooms and 3d gloss to adhered a multitude of beads, the background was created.
The gold design on the top of the page comes from some Prima rub ons that was adhered to some vellum.
You'll notice that neither of these layouts have titles... you'll be okay... you don't always need a title and I simply didn't feel like putting one there.
Thanks for dropping by and be sure to drop in for a class with Cathie if you ever get the chance!
