Hey everyone! Tiffany here with something very different to share using a mixture of the Everyday Wishes, Take Note and scraps from the Jolly kits. I had some fun incorporating mixed media with scraps of the pattern papers and die cuts from the kits, and made a very scrappy art journal spread in my altered book art journal.
I began by building up my background with a mixture of tissue paper, old book pages, acrylic paint and torn pieces from the tone-on-tone polka dot pattern paper from the Jolly kit. I kept to a mint green/purple/light pink color scheme for this journal spread. I adhered everything down with some gel medium, which is sort of like modge podge. I especially love the effect the gel medium has on the tissue paper; it makes it a bit translucent when you put it down on the page, making it blend into the background well.
Once I had my background foundation, I began building my photo cluster. Here I used an old photo of myself that I found on my desk and layered an assortment of random papers behind it. I matted it on a purple pattern paper from Everyday Wishes, then layered some white packaging, that mint tissue paper, a scrap piece of that Jolly paper and a white doily behind it.
Once I had my photo cluster down, I ended up taking out a scale stencil and some modeling paste to add a bit of texture to my spread. I really love how this turned out because the combination of the scales and the mint/purple colors I used made the entire spread look very mermaid-ish, very Ariel, which is very Fairytale Club! I had to let that sit to dry a bit before I embellished the rest of the spread with a mixture of die cuts and stickers from the various kits.
I then added my title. I used the words “star” and “bright” from the Everyday Wishes kit and layered them under my photo cluster. I then finished off the spread with a few pen scribbles and some white ink splatters. Be sure to check out the video below to see my entire process more in depth!
I really hope you enjoyed this project and it has inspired you to use your kits for something other than a scrapbook layout!
