OUAS Layout- Mixed Media "Precious New Moments"

 
Hey lovely ladies :) Well i did another layout!!! woohooo Lol. And i have to say, i really had fun with this one! i spent a LOT of time on the background. I really wanted to do lots of texture and technique. The base paper is Websters Pages and i layered different colors of tissue paper, some blue , some pink, some cream with script on them. I used gel medium and just layered it all over the paper. After it was dry i misted like crazy! I used very subtle mists though :) Let it dry over night and ironed it back flat (boy it was warped Lol) and then added my masking on top. the pix just don't do justice to the depth and texture on there.
I also printed out my pictures on transparency film, then backed them on script paper so it showed through :) I used lots of yummy Imaginarium Chipboard pieces! Being on their DT is a dream come true! So yeah, thats about it Lol :) I also added lots of hints of metal in there to break up the girliness a bit :) Nuts and screws and bolts. Stuff you wouldn't expect to find.
My journaling is on a tag at the bottom right photo tucked in.
The them this month at Once Upon A Sketch this month was "the start of something new"
New year.... new memories :) Nadia's sketch is amazing as always. I really had fun, hope you all like my layout :)
 
Lots of texture!!!! love that you can see the tissue paper print under it all :)
Oh yes those are the new Finnabair metals ! i got lucky and won some from Prima :)
 I really am into doing my pictures on transparency right now! Kind of hard to make work, but def worth it i think. I used Prima paper under them.
 Can you see the screws, nuts, and bolts peekign out here and there?



 Thanks for looking! hugs!

  1. Stunning Miranda. Love the subtle colours in the background and what a great idea to place the nuts and bolts among the flowers. It does break up the girliness (is there such a word?) and it's like a little treasure hunt. Love it all. ox Marg

  6. What a wonderful layout. I love the structure in it and especially how you used the flowers to connect the two photos and make them look like one unit. Great layout!
