Hello and Happy Friday! Yesterday, I was up on the UmWowStudio blog, sharing a simple mixed media layout, created with 1 stencil and several UWS chipboard pieces.
I began by prepping my 12x12 chipboard background with a coat of gesso. After the gesso was dry, I added texture with the Diamond Confetti mask and modeling paste.
next step is to add color. I began with watered down, PaperArtsty
Fresco paint, layering several contrasting shades to blend. For more
glimmer and glitz, I spritzed several shades of Shimmerz sprays to the
I wanted to 'dress up' my chip, so I painted each piece (Leaf Stems(2), & Flourishes One) with PaperArtsy Fresco paint, then heat embossed them for subtle texture.
wanted to continue the floral theme, so I stamped (and heat embossed) a
floral design on the top of my page, then painted the petals/leaves
with more PaperArtsy Fresco paint.
To finish off this simple layout, I added a piece of Flair (Set Sail Flair) and a title (Alpha Two). Done!
I hope you enjoyed this short how-to! Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
