Hi everyone, today I would love to share with you a Mixed Media layout that I created using Prima's Songbird collection. I took this photo of my nieces at Easter. Isn't it darling?
I loved the soft colors in the Songbird collection and wanted to carry that into my layout.
I created a tree in the background using Whipped Spackle, and a wood grain stencil, then used the Prima's Songbird Stamps to create the branches. Stamping them in multiple generations gave me a great depth of field, and offered some interest to the negative space of the layout. For added texture I also included some drywall tape to the tree trunk.
I decided to use the Songbird 6x6 paper pad, to create strips of tattered paper that will offer a platform for my floral spray and photo. As I was creating it, the platform reminded me of a tree house. Prima's Valentine Vine and Kennedy Flowers offer a soft embellishment cluster to the side of the photo, and finish off my "tree" theme. I added a few Vintage Trinkets and Shabby Chic Treasures to create additional weight to the vine. Once the layout was dry I created a mixture of Crackle Accents, Crystal Glass Beads and Glass Glitter, then placed it in the negative spaces of the floral spray and under the photo frame. This offers a touch of sparkle without a lot of bulk.
Here is a glimpse at my finished layout.
I have prepared a process video for you to enjoy...
I just love all the texture in this layout. It is going to look lovely on my wall. Thanks for stopping in today,
