Hi everyone! It’s Pauline and I’m so excited to be guest hosting Inspiration Station for Becki today. I’ve had two weeks at home between shows and have enjoyed playing with some of the products from the Latest & Greatest classes. During the past couple of shows I’ve been very inspired by ideas my students have shared about The Crafter’s Workshop Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste so I couldn’t wait to pull it out and try some new techniques!
I was intrigued with the idea of incorporating mixed media into a scrapbook page. In addition to The Crafter’s Workshop Circle of Jewels stencil included in the Latest & Greatest Cool Tools class, I also had The Crafter’s Workshop Floating City stencil I bought a few months ago that I had yet to create with. So, I gathered all of these items together and started creating.
I first positioned my Floating City stencil on the left side of my paper and spread the modeling paste on top.
I then removed the Floating City stencil.
I wanted to add some sparkle to the water so I sprinkled some glass glitter on the modeling paste waves.
I then positioned the Circle of Jewels stencil and spread some modeling paste on the upper right and lower left corners.
I wanted to add some metallic highlighted areas to the cityscape and the circles, so I used some Ken Oliver Iron Oxide and Copper Liquid Metals and a paintbrush to add the copper highlights. I originally mixed the liquid metals with the modeling paste but wasn’t able to get the vibrant color I wanted, so I painted it on instead.
Once that was done, I just added my picture and some letter stickers and my layout was done. Since this layout is going to be the title page of my book, I opted not to include journaling which I usually consider an essential part of a layout.
Thanks so much for sharing the creative process with me today and I hope to see you in a Latest and Greatest workshop soon!
