Beauty in Chaos – Mixed Media Layout with Anat

Hi gorgeous Lindy’s gang! It’s Anat here and I’m back with a new step-by-step tutorial.

This time I’d like to show you how to create this page layout with background and embellishments using some of the most beautiful Lindy’s sprays and embossing powders.

First I collected some mediums, sprays, embossing powders and elements that match the picture I had previously chosen.

Basic Process

So, join me in the step by step process:

First step is to give the page a generous layer of Clear Gesso. That’s very important for protecting the paper.

Next spread the modeling paste through a stencil and before it dries, quickly sprinkle with gorgeous Caesa’s gold EP.

And, again before it dries, quickly sprinkle on stunning fave Sassy Sapphire EP.

Heat emboss the 2 Embossing powders sprinkled over the paste.

Stamp with Versamark watermark ink and Black forest Black EP and heat it.

Add stamping with Black Archival ink and then add splats of Grab a Guy Gold SprayJack in the pulpit teal Spray and Tainted love Teal Spray

Dry it with a heating tool.

That’s how it looks now

Add more shimmer and color with a paintbrush and California Poppy Gold Shimmer Spray and Jack in the pulpit teal Spray

Add splats on paper lace die-cuts some Tawny Turquoise Vintage Spray – this is a wonderful blend of brown toned base and turquoise shimmer.

Adhere the paper lace using Gel Medium to the background created in previous steps.

Let it dry and start adding colors to the embellishments: I used Black forest Black EP to color the Lotus chipboards.

Desert Moon Turquoise EP to add color to the chipboard doily, previously covered with white gesso.

Then cover the metal elements with 3 gorgeous Embossing powders: first Angel wings peacock EPImperial Crown Purple Gols EP and last Lapis Lazuli Blue Gold EP . Each EP just on part of the metal element, heating after each one, so the end result id multi-colored..

Adhere a 3X3 inches thick cardboard on the background and start assembling all embellishments on top using gel medium. Begin with the paper die cuts and chipboards, add one more piece of cardboard. Add the picture on the very top.

Insert metal elements and cotton lace pieces. Wait until the cluster is completely dry then add some more splats of Jack in the pulpit teal Spray.

Dry it and add matching glass beads, glitter and glass glitter on the elements and background using soft gel.

Add a sentiment Sticker and that’s it – The LO is ready!

So give it a go – the final result will be gorgeous!

Here are some extra photos so you can see all the details.
