Mixed Media Layout “Soak Up the Sun”

Hello all, Today I would love to share a fun mixed media layout I made of our recent adventures to Las Vegas for my birthday, just a quiet and low key get-a-way. Lots of pool side and a nice dinner at a beautiful Italian restaurant. A little bit of Freidmont to take Maksim  Ziplining, and checking out the beautiful hotels and Malls.

I started out with picking the paper and a background panel. I picked the Maze thinking I was going to cut it apart. This turned out better than I envisioned it was going to.

Starting on the background prepping the paper with clear gesso and starting on some stencilling with the Greek Key Pattern Stencil. I added the paste and set aside to dry. I added a little spray to make it pop a little. It was so humid this day, it took, forever to dry.


Using the Maze Panel, I added embossing powder and while it was heating I sprinkled a contrasting colour and took a food skewer and scraped the panel to add a little texture to it.



After some piecing the Maze Panel on the page, and a few layers of paper, I took the Infinite Rectangle Frame, heat embossed it white to add some boldness to the page and framed the pool side photo. A few flowers and some word stickers to finish off the memories.


Thank you for stopping by today and sharing one of my birthday memories. Hope you getting some crafting on! I will be working on some videos this weekend.
