Purple is truly Misty’s gorgeous niece Mallory’s color and Misty is going to show us how she worked her magic on this eye-grabbing layout. She can always mix that right amount of grunginess with a touch of sweetness to knock us off our feet (& out of our socks). So, without further ado or to-do, here’s Misty……………………………………….
Because I am out of white/cream cardstock, and don’t plan to buy anymore, I started this layout on a red piece of cardstock instead and covered it in gesso. Then, I pressed the rectangle grid punchinella into the wet paint for added texture, added my mists and allowed to dry. From there I started my layering, first using some music paper from the Acme Kit that I misted and adhered with modpodge. Then, I continued to layer using some white mesh from the Wedding Night Mixed Media Color Kit, some peacock punchinella, and another piece of the same music paper, tucking in a tag to the left for some journaling.
The sentiment at the top of the page came from cardstock found in the Going Postal Mail Art Kit that I matted with some TH tissue tape.
I had bigger plans for the film strips but changed my mind in the middle of it all. Unfortunately, they were already tied down with eyelets so they just became part of the design anyway… 🙂
I then added the picture and some torquoise rose ribbon as a border. To add some extra interest, I added pieces of a chicken wire chippy from Scrap FX as well as the “Precious” wordlet.
Thank you Misty. Just look at that finished layout! WOW, doesn’t she make it seem so easy? A little punchinella here, some layered paper there, give it a good mist, glue on some wording, and KAPOW!, there it is!
