Live in the Moment - Mixed Media | Majken Pullin August 7, 2021 07:00
Hello crafty friends! Majken here with you this August day to share a mixed media scrapbook layout with a fun title "Live in the Moment", a cut file new last month to the JustNick Studio shop! Let's take a look:
Vicki Boutin's Color Study collection is made for mixed media, and I decided to get messy. I painted Gesso on my white textured cardstock, let it dry, and then painted pink texture paste vertically on the background. Next I stamped polka dots over the top using a similar color of Distress Ink and spritzed some black ink over that. Finally, I used a stencil and some white texture paste over my background.
While all that dried, I cut the Live in the Moment cut file from green patterned paper thinking my title would bring out the green in the flower stem from my photo. But I found it to be too much, so I cut it out again using a black patterned paper. Then I found that one to be too dark. Ultimately I decided to use the green as a shadow to the other one, and I like the dimension of it!
After that, the rest came together quickly with some ephemera, chipboard pieces, and stickers.
Here is the cut file:
Now more than ever, we all deserve to "live in the moment"! Don't forget to share your cut file projects with us on Instagram using #justnickstudio.
