Post 445: Clean & Simple Mixed Media Layout- Inspire

Hi friends!!

I'd like to share a Clean & Simple Mixed Media Layout- "Inspire". This was part of my DT work for Mudra Stamps, all the details including a pictorial are HERE. I was inspired by the beautiful photo of the ballerina, so I knew, I had to create a soft layout around it. 

Here's a photo of the layout:

Here are some close-up photos:


1. The base is a 30 by 30 cm piece of 300 gsm Watercolor Paper. To this, color was added using Lindy's sprays and the ink smooshing technique (using a piece of acetate). This gives an artistic, organic look. 

2. Did background stenciling with archival ink and Mudra's Doodle Cluster Stencil. 

3. Heat embossed Mudra's Chipzeb Chipboards (Fancy Flourish, Victorian Rectangle & Words #1) with Lindy's Embossing Powder- to get a shiny & dimensional look 

4. Prepared the photo mats by using papers (in coordinating colors as the photo) from Mudra's Beary Hugs Paper Pack, distressed their edges and darkened them with archival ink

5. Did background stamping using Mudra's Mini Stamps (Checker, Go Confident, Special Day, Old Script & Rustic Diamond) & shades of grey & black archival inks 

6. Added ink splatter all around the composition using a thin tip brush and coordinating colors of ink 

7. Layered all the elements and adhered them using strong liquid glue. To add dimension to some of the elements, 3d foam tape was added. A foam flower was created using Mudra's Gardenia Dies. A bit of gauze was added under the flower for texture. And to add sparkle & shine, Mudra's Harvest Mix Couture Sequins were added with Glossy Accents.

8. To add more texture to the layout, mini and regular art stones were added mixed with Soft Matte Gel. In the end, white ink splatter was created to tie the whole piece together.

I am playing along with the following challenges:
