Welcome back to another post here. Today I would love to share a fun mixed media layered layout I made for Creative Embellishments. This is a page made with a numb er of elements from the store. lots of layers, lots of paper elements and some photos made from our Nebraska trip a few years ago.

Watch for the video later today.

I used the large wood numbers from the store. I’ve had these for another project and decided not to use them there. I have this paper from 7 Dots with numbers and words and wanted to incorporated them into the page. I also wanted to incorporate the Moths from the Bugs Set to match the paper.

Prepping the background with clear gesso, I started with the Ledger stencil and some black pastes. Once dried, I mixed some white paste along with some mica powder to get the brown paste. Then I spread it through the Rivet Stencil and set it all aside to dry.

I picked a number of paper elements along with the Plus Signs. I ink embossed all the edges. I added an adhesive to the Large wood numbers and then adhered some paper I got from my friend Laneen from Holland. I sanded the edges of the numbers to trim the paper and then ink distressed all of the other elements.

Once everything was distressed, I just started to layer all of the elements on the page. Once all glued down I added some shadows with a water colour pencil around the edges.

I hope you enjoy the page. It’s been awhile since I have scraped some of my favourite memories.

Thank you for stopping by today.
