A Time Keeper’s Journey: Mixed Media Layout
I was in Ireland a couple of years ago for my son’s wedding. The reception was held across the street from Bunratty Castle. It is such a a wonderful folk village. This is a photo I took of my daughter looking into a stream that runs through the village.
When I saw these papers from Marion Smith’s Junque Gypsy line I just knew they were perfect for this layout idea!
I started with the Nota Bene paper as my base and randomly applied touches of brown and peach water color. Then I cut out a few note cards from the Faux Pas paper and a strip from the Tinker paper and began layering them around the page.
The filigree chipboard frame was first painted with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Ponderosa Pine Olive. Then I randomly applied, copper, pollen, clear, and green micro beads. This gives my frame added interest and appeal. Next, I matted my picture and applied a piece of cardboard underneath to give it lift and placed it over the center of my note card layers.
With the base of my layout complete it is now time to add embellishments. I chose a few flowers, bead filigree, moss, cheese cloth, more micro beads, couple of butterflies, lace, and thread.
