"Us" Mixed media scrapbook page + process video by Louise

 Hi Crafters


To share a new scrapbook layout - "Us"


Lately my creative mojo has gone missing!!!
So when it comes to creating I'm struggling.
To complete this page, I've tried going back to some old techniques.



Firstly paste through a stencil.
I just adore this Trodat leaf stencil.



Then I added some of my "go to" colour - teal!
I've used acrylic paint and added lots of water, allowing the paint to run through the paste and down the page.


The background papers come from the fabulous DCWV "Wild and Fancy" collection.
Once I'd finished with the mixed media elements, I wanted to tidy it all up and bring it together.
So I hand stitched around the inner paper square.



To finish I've added some flowers and leaves.
The title I cut using the Cameo and gave it a coat of black gesso, followed by a little sprinkle of glitter.


Here is the process video if you'd like to watch .




Thanks for visiting.
