Hello everyone, Kim here today with a mixed media blog share! In the summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, Connie Nichol, our frugal scrapbooker, has an article all about using vintage sewing patterns. This featured article shows lots of fun ways to incorporate patterns onto cards and layouts. I thought I would share how I used them in a project!
I have done up a 2-page mixed media layout in my Prima Travelers Mixed Media Notebook. This fun little notebook has various types of paper to work on; black & cream mixed media, kraft, cardstock and a heavy vellum.
I have adhered some of the tissue paper pattern on the left side of my project and the packaging on the right side using Prima Soft Matte Gel. I choose to paint a thin layer of watered down Mint Impasto over the entire project to tone the red down and ‘push’ my first layer to the back.
Using my Julie Nutting stamp set, I did some paper piecing.I stamped the clothes onto papers from the Prima Amber Moon collection. Check out a recent Technique Taster showing how to do paper piecing by Kerry Engel.
Prima flowers were perfect for her hair and adding some lovely texture. I also applied some White Gold Icing Paste through a small, lace stencil for added texture and shimmer.
I have been having lots of fun with my Brother P-touch PT-P300BT Cube labeler! I use it often as I have here to add a title or quote to my projects.
Thanks for checking in to the CSM blog! Be sure to check out the Frugal Scrapbooker article in the summer issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, it has some really great ideas for you to try!
