Creating Keepsakes Mixed Media Scrapbooking Volume 2 Blog Hop

Happy Friday everyone and welcome to the Creating Keepsakes Blog Hop, to let you know all about the new Mixed Media Scrapbooking Volume 2 Special Issue.  There was a time, that I didn't think Mixed Media was for me, or that I was a Mixed Media Scrapbooker.  But did you know, that if you've ever mixed two or more art mediums on a layout, then you are a Mixed Media Scrapbooker??!!  I know, right??!!  I never considered myself a Mixed Media artist, but by combining things like Spray Mist, acrylic paint, Gesso, Modeling Paste, Glitter, and more, then you are using Mixed Media on your projects!

I have had a chance to look through the issue and there are so many great ideas for using different mediums, colors, fabric, items around the house and much more.  I created two layouts for the Around the House article and would like to share one of those with you today.

  (as seen in the Mixed Media Scrapbooking Volume 2 Special Issue. Posted with prior permission by the Creative Crafts group. )

Unfortunately, there was a printing mishap with this layout, in the issue, so I wanted to share this one with you, so you could see the full layout.  I used Mixed Media in several ways on this layout:

1.  To create the circles on my layout, I used a paper towel roll dipped in acrylic paint and stamped the circles on my background paper.  

2.  I covered White cardstock with aluminum foil and cut out heart shapes on my Cameo, to make some of the hearts for the border across my layout.

3.  I splattered small touches of Spray Mist across both pages.

Don't be afraid to look for items around your house or items out of the norm, that you wouldn't always immediately think of, to use on your layouts.  This is a great way to give your layouts a one of a kind, custom look.

We have some more Ladies, sharing their work from this issue, so make sure you stop by and visit their Blogs!
