Thank you so much for joining me on the SCT blog today! I’ve just returned from the Crop & Create event in Cornwall, Ontario and what an amazing weekend we had. It was my first time attending a Crop & Create event and it certainly won’t be my last! Catherine and the team orchestrated such an amazing event, it was wonderful to meet so many inspiring ladies and to spend a weekend with people who shared the same passion. I’ve returned from my weekend more inspired than ever and so very energized to create more fun projects. Thank you SCT, it was a memorable event!
Today I am sharing a mixed media layout which features the new stencils by Jillibean Soup! I do not claim to be a mixed media expert but I do enjoy using modeling paste and mist on my projects. The new stencils are lovely and so very easy to work with. On this layout I’ve used the same stencils with two different mediums.
First I combined the stencil with mist, this is relatively simple technique to do, the stencil is applied to the page and mist is sprayed only on the stencil area.
I wanted to achieve a layered effect, to do so I once again used the same stencil but this time with modeling paste. I applied washi tape on the stencil to keep it from moving and applied a thin coat of paste. I immediately removed the stencil.
I love the subtle effect and added texture that modeling paste offers. This layout reflects that mixed media can be incorporated on projects in a very subtle fashion; it’s a great way to add a unique touch and create depth to any projects.
I’m also excited today to offer a giveaway to May Flaum’s latest online class, Supplies on Hand, making the most of your crafty stash.
If ever the world had a shortage of patterned papers, washi tapes, and brads and the only way to save our planet was to gather lots of these things… well I’d be a hero. The odds of this happening seem fairly slim, so rather than continue to be a shopper and collector I’m working towards using more of what I have on hand, and maximizing my crafty fun. What could be better than a class packed with videos and lessons on utilizing your supplies? How about an all-star team of contributors who will be sharing their own unique ideas as well!
To be eligible to win simply leave a comment on this post by Sunday, October 5th! A winner will be randomly selected to win access to the class. For more details and to sign up, please visit May’s website.
Have a wonderful day and don't be afraid to break out those mixed media supplies and give them a whirl…and a spray!
