Inspiration from the Design Team Planner Essentials Scrapbooking Silk Microfine Glitter

Grungy Mixed-Media Layout

February 24, 2020

Good morning! Laura back again today to share my next layout for ECD!

I’d like to think I am a versatile scrapbooker –– I try creating in different styles to suit the mood, product or subject of the photo. Today I am sharing a grungy mixed-media layout I created!

To create this layout:

Step 1 – tear three pieces of cardboard from whatever box you have laying around. One should be about 3×6, another a small strip about 6″ long and another strip around 5″ long. This is a grungy layout so no need to really measure –– just tear off pieces the size you like.
Step 2 – cover your background paper and your cardboard with clear gesso and let dry or dry with a heat gun then distress the edges.
Step 3 – adhere your paper to a piece of heavy cardstock or cardboard to help with the warping.

Step 4 – using your favorite stamps, stamp randomly around the page using embossing ink, then use a coordinating color of embossing powder. I used the chicken wire stamp from the Background Stamp 1 set and white embossing powder.
Step 5 – in sections, use your favorite stencil and light paste to create texture and visual interest.
Step 6 – using your favorite mists and colorant powders, color your page and the cardboard. dry with heat gun.

Step 7 – using a palette and palette knife add a bit of Silk Microfine Glitter and your light paste. Create how ever many colors of glitter paste you wish.
I used royal teal and chocolate.
Step 8 – using your palette knife spread your glitter paste over the cardboard and the stenciled areas of your page.
Step 9 – die cut 6 various sizes of fitted fishtails and distress the edges.
Step 10 – die cut 3 – 1 3/4″ stitched circles and distress the edges.
Step 11 – die cut one edge from the planner essentials 11 and distress the edges.

Typically, I do not like taking photos in direct sun but to share the glittery but grungy effect of the glitter paste, I took a couple below.

And here is the finished layout once again. I think the glitter paste looks really awesome!

Thanks for stopping by!

Laura
