Hey everyone! Tiffany here with a simple mixed media project for my Disney mini album using the Happy Day kit. My last trip to Disney was back in October/November of 2017 and I still haven’t done my album for it. But I thought it would be great to create it with different bits from The Fairytale Club kits. For this spread, I did a mixed media layout with a simple pocket page.
For the layout, I wanted to document photos with my friend and I Disneybounding as Ursula and Ariel at the Magic Kingdom. We were going to do Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party in the evening, so we decided to dress up for the day and take lots of photos at the park. We took quite a few in front of Cinderella’s Castle, so I wanted to scrap those. For this layout, I used a selfie we took. I prepped my white cardstock first though with a bit of acrylic paint. I used mermaid-ish colors, so a lot of teals, purples and light pinks. I then took my mermaid scale Jane Davenport stencil and added a bit of modeling paste to add some scales and texture to my background.
Once my background was dry, I began building my photo cluster. I layered a white doily and some purple and white tissue paper behind my photo, which I matted on the mint with white polka dot paper from the kit. I also layered a bit of the pink and white striped paper behind that as well. When I had all of that down, I began embellishing. I added two of the heart die cuts on the top left corner of the photo, and used the “me & you” gold foil die cuts from the Take Note kit as my title. I then sprinkled some enamel dots from my stash, along with a clear sticker that says “good times” and a pretty bow paperclip.
For my pocket page, I only used one photo of us. I embellished that photo with a banner die cut from my stash layered on top of this purple with white polka dot paper from the This Is Halloween kit. For the 3x4 pocket next to the photo, I used the “Happy Day” card from the cut apart sheet. Then for my 4x6, I used a Simple Stories transparency that says “magic” and stapled my journaling, which I typed and printed on vellum. I kept these pockets simple because I wanted to use that transparency but didn’t want cover too much of it up. I like the idea of it being a window to see through to the page behind it.
That is my spread. I hope you enjoyed it. It’ll go nicely into my Disney mini album that I’m making for this trip!
