All done.

Remember Tuesday's post about my mixed media class?

I've finished up those layouts and thought I would share them today.

The first one is bright but I love it.


I'm not a doily fan but I was bound and determined to use it because it was in the kit. I also add some stickers from the Echo Park sticker sheet we got.


I added a stamp to the tag after inking it with Jenni Bowlin cough syrup and my ink blending tool for my journaling.


For the second layout I went much more muted with a mint background similar to the background Cathie created for the class.


My favorite part of this layout is the dimension from stenciling the dots. It looks so cool in person. I added my journaling to that area to draw even more attention to it.


And a few more stickers made this layout complete.



You may have noticed that on both layouts I only used one photo. I like to use lots of photos on a layout but in this case I felt like I didn't want to hide the mixed media that went into the background! It was a lot of work and I wanted to work around it so I could let it show.

One thing Cathie did mention while teaching her class was to think about the final result- a.k.a where you'll place your picture/story- so that you could work towards that. That was a good idea so I had in mind where I wanted to add my picture before I started.

I love the way these layouts turned out. What do you think? Are you into the mixed media/art journaling trend?



  1. Fun, fun! Loving all the background work on these~!!
