Time Machine Mixed Media Layout

Hi everyone, it’s Pam here with a mixed media layout featuring Kaisercraft’s Time Machine collection.Oct1_edited-1

So let’s have a look at how this layout was constructed. First I did some misting using an old Tim Holtz mask which worked really nicely with this collection that features cogs and clocks. I used Kaisermist Spray ink in Turquoise. I spritzed and dried with a paper towel a few times, building up the colour without saturating the patterned paper. My base paper is Steam Engine.P1170525_edited-1The next step was to do some embossing. I used the Brick embossing folder for this step. I placed the embossing folder under my patterned paper and used an embossing tool to trace the brick pattern through the paper to the folder below. The effect you get depends on which side of the embossing folder you use. Also you can get an even different effect if you place the paper front side down onto the embossing folder  and trace through the back side of the paper. Once I had done the embossing I used distress ink on a sponge to highlight the texture.P1170526_edited-1Here are some close ups of the embossing. I think this technique is great-it adds texture and interest without adding bulk.

The Time Machine has quite a few adventure stickers and die cuts, and I thought they would be perfect for scrapping this photo of my husband climbing the ‘Inaccessible Pinnacle’ on the Isle of Skye. And the brick embossing kind of relates to the rocky peak on top of the ‘Inn Pinn’.

And if you look closely below you will also see a strip of printed washi tape.P1170533_edited-1Oct1_edited-1

I hope this has given you some ideas for using different media on you layouts.
