Capture Moments Mixed Media Layout

Hello everyone, welcome back, I hope everyone one had a great holiday if you celebrate in your area. I am back from a much long over due vacations after the long and hectic past months. My good friend Amy and I took a mom trip with the kids. Her kids and mine. I wont share to much because I have a bunch of projects I want to do to capture our memories. But this is a quick mixed media layout made of her and Olivia after dinner one night. Th blood and lighting was unique and fun to work with.


I have a video to post but I came home and went right to work on a stretch so I will add it after this weekend.


This layout started with just finding the right paper collection for the base, I knew of two collections that had the purple and teal combo and I picked the garden party collection. I also save most of my scraps from previous projects so I just ended up using some of them to fill in the layering.


I started with the base and prepping the paper with the clear gesso. I need really know what I’m going to do until I start messing around. I used the Lines and Dots Stencil and found some pretty glitter paste to cover the background. I set aside to dry and work on matting my photo.


I gather a variety of ribbon, flowers and beads to add to the layers of paper. I wanted to frame the photo but not cemetrical. I use the Circle Doodle Frame and picked 0ut the title. Using matching paint I use sponged it onto the chipboard. No prep, no smell, no lingering effects just dabbing of the paint with a sponge. This also added a little bit of texture with the dabbing process.

After everything was dry, I began just laying down paper and focusing on adding the elements. Using the Capture Moments Words from the Small Moments Boarder Words, I Actually cut the flourish ends off the words and layer them into the page. I really don’t let much go to waste.Once all the layers done, I added small flower clusters and did some minimal stamping with the Circle Bokeh Stamp around each of the focal points. I topped it of with some mixed micobeaes in the teal and purple colours.


I hope you all enjoy and look for more projects and stories of our vacation adventures. Happy Crafting and “Capture Moments”
