"Enjoy today" Mixed Media layout





Hi all! Finally got a chance to finish my layout and blog about it.
These pictures are technically not so perfect but I turned them into a collage with an app and that gave it a whole different effect. These pictures were too much fun NOT to scrap!
The journaling tells that it was a regular day when Connor and I walked to the nearby store for groceries. We walked by a square tower every time, with a little border around it Connor likes to climb. One thing led to another and we were doing 'peek-a-boo' around the corners soon. How much fun Connor had is clearly to be seen on the pictures.

I started out with a lovely paper sheet from 13Arts. Mixed Finnabair teal mica powders with clear gesso to use through a stencil with circular shapes.


Leaving me with this effect. (I wanted to sort of stick with the circle theme because of the 'bubbliness" of the picture.


Then I decided to mix my recent favourite medium glass beads texture gel with a dark blue Inka Gold. However, applying this through a stencil with small holes is not easy. I wouldn't advice it ;)


The outcome was nice though.
I sprayed some silver glimmermist through a stencil with small dots. I punched holes in the top and bottom of the page. Later I taped yellow patterned paper to the back and filled in the holes with silver crackle paint.


The big swirl and text are from Scrapiniec. Basically I altered every piece of chipboard/wood/plastic before I adhered it. I used turquoise Inka Gold, glass beads texture gel, gold and silver crackle paints. 
I added some turquoise stars and yellow and turquoise iridescent circles, some big broad blue ribbon and glittery blue swirls as a final touch. 


Here are some close-ups so you can see the textures.
