I had alot of ideas flowing thru my brain for this next layout. I really wanted to use the last sheet of SEI “Homestead” pattern paper from my stash (as well as using it towards my Use It or Lose It Challenge), and I thought it would be perfect match for the Let’s Get Sketchy January Week 2 sketch:
So I started adding gesso to tone it down, then using the packaging technique, added some mist to it:
EPIC FAIL! YIKES! That is NOT the result I wanted. I hated to waste that paper, but on the flip side, the mixed media DID NOT seep thru AND the back side of that paper is a rich, dark plaid pattern. So I salvaged it by doing lots of tearing, and this is the result:
Did my mixed media using Tattered Angels mist in Cork, which is a light brown. The background paper is by Photo Play, as wel as the stickers and photo mats. The title is MAMBI and the chipboard circle peeking out on the side is from my stash. I added gold glitter glue so it wouldn’t look so blah.
I’m submitting this layout to ACOT’s Manufacture Challenge. The letters this month or P and T. P for Photo Play; T for Tattered Angels.
I’m also hosting my Fashion Challenge over at ACOT as well. I still need to post it, but I’m using the following image that I found on Pinterest:
Lovin’ the rich colors, aren’t you? And adding gold for a bit added “Wow!”.
