Life Documented Mixed Media Layout

Welcome back to another post here. I would like to share a layout I made based off some inspiration from Andy Skinners May Challenge.

This is a layout I made with the inspiration photo in mind, using various products. I picked out the paper and all the chipboard, stencils  and goodies to go with it.



I made a short video of the creative process.


I started with the background, like I always do, knowing that I will cover up most of it 95% of the time. But I love the feel and the texture of things. I also love pulling out elements of the paper. I added more Distress Script Stamp to the background seeing there was already writing on there. I also added the gypsie queen with a iridescent embossing powder.



Once the embossing was done, I added stencil with the Mandala Stencil and some crackle paint. On the cut out elements, I used the Flourish stencil 3 for a little more texture. I used the granite embossing powder on the Swirl and Scroll 2 Flourish.


Once I had everything embossed and ink distressed around the edges, I fussy cut a number of elements. I then placed them here and there, where they might look good.

Once it all looked ok, I started to glue them all down and find my title for the page. This title I choose the Life Documented and added it to the layout.
