Colorful Mixed Media Layout with Julia Kissel

Hi dear friends! Julia Kissel here with you all on the Lindy’s blog today. This week I want to share with you my colorful layout about life and love…. I wanted to convey my emotions using Lindy’s  Sprays, Squirts and Embossing powder – I hope you enjoy seeing how this piece came about!

Watch my step-by-step video and enjoy – if you have any questions just leave them in the comments below!

Basic Process

  1. Glue one sheet of  Dina Wakley collage paper onto watercolor paper 30x30cm.
  2. Cover the paper with any clear medium, I used 3D Matte Gel from Finnabair.
  3. Apply texture paste through a stencil. I used Distress Grit-Paste Tim Holtz.
  4. Time to spray! Start with Alpine Ice Rose Shimmer Spray Add extra water using a spray bottle to create beautiful drips!
  5.  Add shadows and colors with Grab a Guy Gold Shimmer Spray and Golden Doubloons Vintage Spray  
  6. Dry before applying the next color.
  7. Next, add Azure Sea Asters Shimmer Spray. Let it dry.
  8. Paint fabric pieces as decorations. I used Grab a Guy Gold Shimmer Spray and Hottie Patottie Hot Pink Shimmer Spray
  9. Cover the paper edges with Obviously Black EP. It’s convenient to use the clear embossing dabber.
  10. For additional effect use Hockey Puck Black Squirts and distress inks in dark colors along the sides of the paper .
  11. Glue down the elements.
  12. Add sponge accents, with white acrylic paint.
