Mixed Media Layout Techniques

Hi Gang, it’s Solange Marques here with a gorgeous mixed media layout using Lindy’s Stamp Gang products.

I’ve used  Starbursts and Moon Shadows to create a background and decorate the chipboard pieces.

This is how I’ve created my Mixed Media Layout. I’ve used: Salt Water TaffyBodacious BlushDark Chocolate Truffle, Buccaneer Bronze and I have made a step-by-step  to show you how you can make this yourself:

  1. Glue down the photo on paper and I extend the edges with acrylic paints. I also applied some stamps on the photo.

  1. I absolutely love this! But as a newbie I am stumped as to what you mount this on to present it as a gift? Is this 12×12 scrapbook paper? Then what do you do? Also where can I find those precious butterflies you used, they are petite and pretty. Thanks!

  2. Fantastic technique..the photo looks part of the whole layout ,so beautifully extended ! Thanks a lot for sharing the techniques 🙂
