Mixed Media Layout Techniques

Hi Gang, it’s Solange Marques here with a gorgeous mixed media layout using Lindy’s Stamp Gang products.

I’ve used  Starbursts and Moon Shadows to create a background and decorate the chipboard pieces.

This is how I’ve created my Mixed Media Layout. I’ve used: Salt Water TaffyBodacious BlushDark Chocolate Truffle, Buccaneer Bronze and I have made a step-by-step  to show you how you can make this yourself:

  1. Glue down the photo on paper and I extend the edges with acrylic paints. I also applied some stamps on the photo.


2. Apply ceramic stucco to some places of the background.


3. After it dries, apply Lindy’s stamp Gang –Bodacious Blush and Salt Water Taffy.


4.   Using a stencil, apply modelling paste .



5.  Using a brush, apply acrylic gesso delicately on the ceramic stucco.


6.  Splash Buccaneer Bronze on some places of the background and then spray water.



7.  The background is ready.


8. Apply Lindy’s stamp gang spray Bodacious Blush, on the chipboard.


8. I added the chipboard, laces and flowers on the layout.


9.   I added  some fussy cuttings, such as flowers and butterflies. I added also the title:

You must spray the light colors and then add the darker colors.

  1. I absolutely love this! But as a newbie I am stumped as to what you mount this on to present it as a gift? Is this 12×12 scrapbook paper? Then what do you do? Also where can I find those precious butterflies you used, they are petite and pretty. Thanks!

  2. Fantastic technique..the photo looks part of the whole layout ,so beautifully extended ! Thanks a lot for sharing the techniques 🙂
