HAPPY MIXED MEDIA LAYOUT

Hi everyone! Nicole here with a fun mixed media summer layout I created using the Good Vibes Paper Collection and the Bom Dia Die cuts. I was really excited to see the Good Vibes Collection in my DT box. It is one of my favorite collections and I really enjoyed the process of creating this fun layout.

To begin, I sprayed blue ink onto watercolor paper and waited for it to dry. Once it was dry, I used a blending brush, orange ink and a star stencil to create the stars. Then, I splashed a little bit of red ink all over. I let the ink dry completely before adding all of the pretty papers and embellishments!


The die cut elements from the Bom Dia Collection is so perfect for scrapbooking special memories such as a boy flying his kite on the beach. I used a variety on this layout... I couldn't help myself. :)Just look at all of the beautiful dies from this collection... I can assure you...there are a lot more, but I had to refrain myself. I think I added enough, don't you think? LOL

While I was going through my stash of chipboard, I found a green and white speech bubble chipboard and since I didn't want to stamp on it... I didn't want the ink to smear... I added another chipboard to it. I love the chipboards layered together. Don't you love when you experience happy accidents? 


I layered some chipboard frames over the photos and then fussy cut the "fly a kite" sentiment from the Good Vibes Collection. I was determined to find a way to use that sentiment on this layout. I cut the "here and now" and mounted it next to the frames using foam squares. So cool!


I added a sticker dot to the starfish with a gem to the center. Then, I stamped the little hands from the Summer Love stamp set to each side of the "happy" die cut. Super fun!!

I used the same Summer Love stamps to add the robe corners at the top and bottom of the layout. After I looked at this... I realized that the design of the layout looks like a kite and that was totally by accident! So I added the string at the bottom using the Oh Baby Stamp Set.

This layout makes me so happy... I just love how happy it looks, mimicking Edward's joy perfectly.


For my next layout, I used a variety of papers from the Journal Stories Collection. I wanted to created a pretty, monochromatic layout for this picture in particular to really showcase the mood. Also, I kept it very simple so that the main focus would be the photo.


To begin, I cut the photo down to 4x4 and then added a variety of Journal Stories papers behind the photo to create a fun frame. I tore the edges of a few to add texture to the layout.


I added the chipboard frame slightly behind the photo frame and then stamped the flower onto cardstock and fussy cut it out to use as an embellishment. I added the sticker dots for fun. I just love them...

stamped the rope corner frame using black ink to frame the photo even more... And I used the Summer Love Stamp set to add the bubbles and sentiment across the bottom and top of the layout.

Super simple, but fun! What do you think? Which layout is your favorite and why? Leave us a comment.
