“Happy” mixed media layout

I have been so spoiled with all the gorgeous Little Birdie Crafts products! All I want to do is play! This time I did a single page layout again with the gorgeous succulents and woodgrain paper. I just love this color palette!

” Happy “


I used a cream card-stock to build the layout on and trimmed the wood-grain paper to 11″ x 11″. Then I distress all the edges. For the first layer behind the photograph, I used a 6″ x 6″ sand colored piece of script paper and distressed it all around as well.


I then stenciled with the gesso and the Mosaic stencil, and splattered with Color Splash and Plum Gold Tinted metallic paint. I used  a heat tool to dry.


The next layer is a piece of Burlap and old book paper.


I painted the title with Tinted Metallic Paint: Golden Plum, and the dragonfly charm with white Gesso.


Create a cluster of flowers, succulents and leaves and add the painted title. I raised the title with foam tape.

To add more detail I adhered Crystal Drops with glossy Accents, as well as  pearls and word stickers.
