Mixed Media Layout by Lisa Gregory-Nazario

 I can’t describe how much  I love Lindy’s Stamp Gang products! I started with a plain neutral lightly designed paper, and ended up with this… Just a few colors, a little water, and I was in love! It amazes me how different mediums take the same color slightly differently. Love that! It is like a few different colors, yet it came from the same bottle!
I started by mounting a neutral patterned paper on a 12×12 piece of corrugated cardboard using ModPodge. Then, I gave it a light coat of clear gesso. That gives it the feel of working on canvas, and it takes the sprays beautifully!! My favorite technique! I sprayed the background lightly with water, then sprayed Sweet Violet Purple Teal Starburst Spray, Tea Pot Purple Starburst Spray and Pop Rock Purple Flat Fabio in random parts  of the background, letting the colors drip and spread, and hitting it with a heat gun to dry it in different directions. I love to move the puddles of color around with the dryer.

I used a mask and some texture paste on the background. Before removing the mask I sprayed some Phantom Fuchsia Moon Shadow Mist and spread it into the texture paste. This colored the paste where I wanted it. Moon Shadow has a brown base in the color, and I love it for a variegated distressed look.

I sprayed the cheese cloth with Sweet Violet Purple Teal Starburst Spray and Tea Pot Purple Starburst Spray then dried it with a heat tool.I tucked it under the frame and trailed it down the vine.The gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard frame was primed with white gesso. After it dried I used a clear embossing ink and  Spring Leaf Chartreuse Embossing Powder on it and heat embossed with a craft heat tool .I simply adore the 2 toned effect of Lindys embossing powders. It’s magical!

The large Prima flowers were light gray in color. With a few sprays of  Sweet Violet Purple Teal Starburst Spray, they were transformed into a beautiful lavender color. It leaves a teal sparkle behind that is absolutely gorgeous. The Prima vine was snipped in half and the light lavender flowers were sprayed with the same spray, but the color is much deeper on the mulberry flowers. It still leaves that gorgeous teal sparkle behind.

I love the combo of purple and green. The colors are very soothing to me, and reminds me of the first hint of summer in a beautiful garden. Purple Irises and the lush green leaves. The colors are delightful. I added some random pearls to the background for added texture and beauty.

Don’t forget to join us for the June Color Challenge this month!! The colors are gorgeous as usual!!
