Mixing Up the Media

Hi it’s Ali here with you today!

I adore paints, inks and sprays so I decided to get a whole load out onto my desk and have a play! The Happy Snaps collection is full to the brim with colour, fun and vibrancy so that was the direction I took with my layout 🙂


I started off with Distress Inks; Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers swiping them through a couple of homemade stencils cut on my die cutting machine. Then I flicked and swirled some Dylusions Ink Sprays using the stick attached to the nozzle.


I scraped some white acrylic paint through a stencil with a credit card. Finally I got out my favourite Kaisercolour paints; Sea Breeze and Hot Pink and smooshed (very technical!!) them onto the page.


I did a bit of gold embossing using the gorgeous stamps in the Happy Snaps collection as well as some stamping in black ink, along with a few stamps from the Polaroid clear stamp set (one of my faves!)


I cut a strip of the Picture Perfect 12×12 and a border from the Picture Perfect Gloss Paper. The green holey strip came from the fantastic Slideshow die cut paper. I layered them all up to form the mat for my photos and then chose some die-cuts from the Collectables pack and a sticker or two from the Alpha Sticker Sheet; both are must haves in my opinion.


I had so much fun getting messy! I hope I have inspired you to have a play 🙂

Thank you for popping in today,

Ali x
