6×6 Mixed Media Layout – Enjoy the Little Things

IMG_1581I’ve seen so many artists creating the large 12 x12 mixed media, dimensional “scrapbook” layouts and wanted so bad to give it a go. However, the large format was intimidating me. Then it dawned on me, as I was flipping through one of my 6 x 6 Prima paper collections, why not start small?

I backed the completed layout against a sheet of 6 x 6 corrugated cardstock to give it the extra weight it needed. After applying so many layers of gesso, ink, gel medium, etc, it just wouldn’t lay flat.

Since I didn’t do a step by step tutorial with photos, I will list the products I used. I’m amazed by how much went in to this little layout:

1. Prima Life Time 6 x 6 paper collection

2. Wendy Vecchi Crackled Texture Paste

3. Punchinella (as a stencil)

4. Inka Gold – Lava Red & Jade Green (LUV this stuff!)

5. Heidi Swapp Color Shine – Seafoam

6. Dylusions Spray – Calypso Teal ( see my earlier post regarding my “oopsie”)

7. Perfect Pearls Mist – Perfect Pearl

8. Gloss Gel Medium – Liquitex Basics

9. White Gesso ( can’t remember the brand right now but, I bought a gallon of the stuff on clearance at Hobby Lobby)

10. Tulip Beads in a Bottle – Aqua Marine Gemstone

11. Graphite

12. Faber-Castell Pitt Big White Pen

13. Martha Stewart Paper Clay

14. Mod Podge Molds (for use with paper clay)

15. Tsukineko All Purpose Inks – white & black

16. Metal heart embellishment

17. “Friend” wood embellishment

18. Cricut Die Cut – Ornate Heart

WOW, that’s a lot of product! And I realize I could have added more.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun to create and I plan to make more. In the meantime, I am working on a leather cuff bracelet. Which, of course, I will post at a later date.

Right now, I gots to chill. Currently (Feb. 6th), I am 22 hours post-op foot surgery.  *smile* *frown* *yawn* beep bop boop…

It’s true. I can’t pass up a good deal! You know how it is. Crafting is an expensive hobby. SO, sometimes, I have to get rid of some stuff. I gift as much as I can. I sell it too. The goal is to declutter so that I can actually work on my crafts in my studio.
