Step by step- Mixed media layout

Hey there bloggers Rita Barakat here with a mixed media layout!
It's a scrap-lift from  Misty Russell -
it was gorgeous so I had to copy lift it!
I don't know how she went about hers but here's how I made mine.

     First I started with a foil embossed paper ( DCWV )
Added some texture with modeling paste
and a stencil (Artistcellar Jill K. Berry-Romans)

After it was dry I added some color with Dylusions Ink spray.

Then I cut up some flags and sprayed some of those.
Added them onto my page, mxing in pattern paper (Susan K Weckeser) cut flags,
overlapping each other with some heavy gel medium.
Sprayed a ton of flowers to match.
And added a little text- Oh yeah- the pic on the left
was from our honeymoon way back when and the pic
on the right is last year. Which reminds me - we need to take a  new photo! 
And I need to scrap-lift more often, that was fun!


  1. It's fun to look at too Rita! I really like what the coloured sprays do to the foiled papers - calm and brighten them if that makes sense.
    Having fun is surely what it is all about!

  2. Love all the colour! Great piece

  3. Ooooh, love the color and texture on this layout, Rita.

  4. gorgeous, so many colours and textures :)

  5. Stuning Rita..looks very touchy feely!!

  6. Your layout looks really good. The colors are so peaceful. Thank you for sharing your technique. I'm going to use it on my next layout.
