Hi everyone! Diana here today with a fun mixed media layout using Rinea foil, paint, embossing paste and some good old fashioned paper punches.
I found this old pic of my oldest son with his Grandma and Great Grandma on his 5th birthday and knew I needed to create a layout with this treasure. We've lost both in the past 10 years so this is such a special gift.
I started my layout by cutting this great title cutout from the silhouette design store. I then glued it down to my foil and started cutting it out. I then prepare my background cardstock by adding white gesso.
I left this to dry. Once it was I picked out a fun confetti stencil, embossing paste, and a fun yellow ink refill to create texture on my background.
I then smeared it on my background through the stencil. I moved it around three times. After it dried I realized there just wasn't as much color as I was hoping for.
I pulled out some yellow/gold paint and added some water. This paint has such a great shimmer to it. I started adding it over some of the embossed background. I then did some splatter with what I had remaining on the pallet.
I pulled out some of my "birthday" themed punches and some different patterned papers and started punching different shapes. I then adhered my title and picture down.
Here are some close ups of my finished layout with all the elements added on.
I love the how shiny the foiled paper is. Really adds a little more pizazz to my layout.
I used two different patterned papers under my photo as well as some gold foiled paper with a torn edge to give some texture.
This is the first time I've used a cut file like this on a layout and i must say I am hooked! I can't wait to cut some more and see what comes of them!!
