Good morning! I have to confess it has been a while since I have created a scrapbook page. I’m not sure where my scrapping mojo has run off to, but I’m beginning to miss it. In the hopes of reviving Monsieur Mojo, I have created this layout of my daughter using the totally fabulous Frog Dog Studio November Paper Add On Kit.
As much as I love mixed media (and you may find this as odd as I do), I never incorporate it into my scrapbooking. It’s almost like the two must remain separated. I figured I’d give it a go since I always admire this type of scrapping (Tina is an absolute master at this type of thing!)
I started out by covering the page in matte medium and pushing and crumbling the brown tissue paper into it. Then I started spraying away with the Lindy’s sprays from the kit.
When that was dry, I just tore up some of the BoBunny papers that I liked from the kit to create a base for my photo. Then I attached the photo, and worked in some Tim Holtz Distress Paint to help blend it in.
I wanted to get some good texture on the background, so I used some Golden Modeling Paste and a few stencils. I just laid down the stencils in random spots and gently scraped on the modeling paste over the top using a catalyst wedge.
Using the stamps from the kit, I stamped around the page randomly, using brown Ranger Archival Ink. When I was satisfied with that, I added some of the BoBunny chipboard pieces. I also didn’t want the stark white of the modeling paste, so I went over the page with some more Distress Paint. I wanted everything to blend together. I added a few rubons also just for some extra interest.
And the final product!
