This is real life layout

Hi all! I’m excited to share a fun mixed media layout I created using the Penny Copper Modeling Paste and the Wild Roses Stencil. I also played with my gel plate from Gel Press to create some fun patterns to frame the photo.

Disclaimer: “The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.”

For this layout, my goal was to dig through my stash for embellishments that I would not normally use on a layout and USE them! I must say, this was such a fun challenge for me and after I finished creating this layout, I was proud that I used some of my old stash, rather than reaching for my new product.

To begin, I sprayed the gel plate with some spray ink and placed the white cardstock over the plate, pressing down firmly to soak up the ink. I repeated this process with blue ink to add some blue. Then I used some mixed media crayons by rubbing the crayon onto the gel plate and then smearing water into the crayon to create a pinkish color. Once I was satisfied with the color, I placed the yellow and blue paper over the plate to add some pink.

Next, I used a palette knife to spread the Copper Penny Modeling paste through the Wild Roses stencil.

After the Copper Penny Modeling Paste was completely dry, I cut the paper up into different sized pieces…

Next, I decided I wanted to use the Wild Roses stencil and the Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste to create more flowers and texture onto the white cardstock… I thought it make a cool background!

I waited for the Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste to completely dry before using the Gel Medium to glue down the pieces I cut out earlier.

Before gluing down everything, I made sure I was happy with the placement of embellishments. I used my Sizzix to create the little flowers and lace border.

Here are some close ups!

The next time you’re thinking about throwing something away…try using it on your project! I promise, it feels good to use up the stash you have.

Thanks so much for visiting today!

  1. I notice you do a lot of journal pages. But what about different size cards? And ATC’s? Artes Trading Cards These are the same size as a playing card 2.5 X 3.5. Just wondering.
