For this extraordinary layout Louise has used a combination of mediums with this wonderful new release Prima mask by Finnabair.
To begin with Louise has used a clear impasto with the mask to create a dimensional bubble pattern on the background. To highlight this pattern has applied 3 layers of paint/mist. First layer was a an application of the Luminarte Silks paint, which once applied was spritzed with water to create a subtle silver coloured layer. The second layer was with the Heidi Swapp Tinsel Color Shine mist. This was also spritzed with water and allowed to dribble down the page. Once all medium layers were dry Louise completed the layout and then added extra coordinating colour splats with the Tattered Angels Chalkboard glimmer mist.
Stencils and mists are a great way to add texture and color to layouts. Iris likes to turn to stencils every time she needs to make layouts that will focus a certain paper line that is more on the graphic and simple style.
The use of mixed media materials with stencils instantly add dimension and visual interest on any project. Above are two samples from Iris using stencils and mixed media materials paired with clean and simple paper lines from the latest release of Webster’s Pages… “Recorded” and “It’s Christmas” (coming soon!)
Jill has used her Studio Calico Masks on the codex book she has created. On the cover she has used repetition of the small butterfly to give it a worn them. On the inside signatures that have been bound with string, you can see that Jill has highlighted the butterfly motif on the cover of each signature.
