Mixed media background for scrapbook layout using a brayer

Today I want to share a scrapbook layout where I created a mixed media background using inks and a brayer.

I was inspired by the class I took on Altenew Academy – “Irresistible Inking Techniques”. It was so easy and fun and definitely you will get a different effect each time.

On a white cardstock, I used my Cameo to cut a tiny dots frame border just for interest. To have a brayered effect on the background, I used inks and mixed them with some water and roll my brayer onto it. I used some Mustard Seed Distress Ink and Altenew’s Coral Berry Ink. It helps to add different colors when one color is dry. I added some paint splatters for a more fun look. For embellishments, I added some diecut flourishes and flowers which I fussy cut from a patterned paper in the Altenew Reflections Kit . For my title, I cut the word “best” and “ever” from a patterned paper as well.

It’s always fun to do mixed media backgrounds because the results can be quite unpredictable. Hope you will try it out too!

‘Love’ Scrapbook layout

Hello! I haven’t post much this month as it’s getting busier around here in the summer. Today I have a scrapbook layout to share with you with Sketch N Scrap layout sketch. It’s a lovely sketch designed by Heather.

For my layout,  I flipped the sketch horizontally because my photo’s focal point was on the right side.

I started with splattering some watercolor droplets that matched my papers on my white cardstock. I used supplies from the Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Kit. I love fussy cutting the flowers from the patterned paper as embellishments. I added the rose gold alphabet thickers as my title to my layout. Honestly, I really need to be more creative with my title lol

“Love”- travel Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone! I want to share a layout that involves again lots of stamping and detailed cutting of those stamped images.

Few years ago my husband and I traveled to Bali and had a photo shoot. The photographer used a different lens that captured this photo – it made us look like we were standing on top on the world. It was so pretty and pretty cool!

I used a free cutfile from Paper Issues and cut out the love script heart with my Cameo. I used some papers and embellishments from Altenew Reflection Scrapbooking Kit. I would say I had a blast stamping all those flowers and leaves and then cut them out with my scissors. I probably could have used my PicScan to cut them out but I was worried I might ruined them if I made a mistake with the cutlines.  The flowers are from Altenew Beautiful Day and Garden Treasure stamp sets.
