My Forever Love with Susie

Hello and welcome! Susie hosting the blog today and I would like to share a mixed media layout I created featuring the new Windsong Paper Pack!  The papers in the collection have very subtle colors and patterns. I used coordinating colors of PowderPuff Chalking Ink to add some extra patterns to my project!

I was recently looking at pictures of my parents from the early years of their marriage and decided I had to scrap them. February, being the month of love, provided the perfect opportunity!

I used Windsong105 as my background and started to stencil with Peach Tree and Latte PowderPuff Chalking Inks.  I also used Antique Linen, Warm Sand, and Sunset.
You can see some of the stencil work I did around the title.  The hearts were die cut from papers in the Earth Wind Fire Collection.

Here I applied modeling paste through the stencil.  After it dried, I replaced the stencil and blended some inks on top.  The tags that I tucked behind the pictures also got some attention - stenciling, embossing, and inking!

One of the fun things about doing a mixed media layout are all of the layers!  Ink, modeling paste, cheesecloth, chipboard, and corrugated cardboard are all in place before I even add the pictures!

I die cut a photo frame out of cardboard and used Barn Board to accent the heart, which I taped in place on the backside.  I cut the frame out again using Windsong 103 but this time I removed the heart...

...and let the Barn Board accent show through.  I repeated the process with the smaller frame and then hand stamped the names and details.
