Relax | Scrap Academy | Using Inexpensive Mixed Media Products

Wednesday 9 September 2020


 Hey everyone, I have a new layout and video for Scrap Academy today. This Term we are focussing on Mixed Media and this week we are looking at using inexpensive materials.

I’m using an inexpensive set of water colour paints. There are 36 colours and I got them from Hobbycraft. They are still a current product and retail around £6. There are other options available too, shop around and check out Amazon too if you are looking to pick up a set. Mixed Media background can be made, very successfully, with a set of paints like this and not much else!

I started off with a sheet of white card. I added water to my paintbrush and activated the paint. I then painted the colour onto a piece of packaging, just a piece of plastic cellophane from an embellishment pack. I then pressed the packaging onto my layout to transfer the colour onto the white background. I repeated this with several colours. I also added splatters in the same colours.

Once the layout was dry I was then able to add my photo and several layers and little journaling cards around my photo. I carried on with adding embellishments, most of which were from the July Lollipop Box Club. I also added Bramble Fox Perspextives: a green circle, blue geotags and some fish. I kept my embellishments colour-on-colour, meaning that I put pink embellishments on the pink area of mixed media and green embellishments on the green area of mixed media.

I finished off with a title and some pretty sequins by Spiegelmom Scraps.

Thanks so much for joining me today and happy scrapping
