Mixed Media Layout "Beautiful"

Hello my dear reader,


finally my favorite season of the year started, I am so happy.

October,  the start of the fall season.

Alexander Smith`s quote circumscribes the new month perfectly:

"In the entire circle of the year there are no days so delightful as those 

of a fine October".

I really love it when the wood sidewalks are covered with leaves on my morning hike.

The smell of baked apple with marzipan, hot chocolate and pumpkin soup is filling my house.

Soon the shelves will be filled with the first Christmas candy and first Christmas decoration.

So exciting!!!

But anyway, I have for you a scrapbook layout in mixed media style.

I created my page on the new paper collection Bella and Sunrise.

What I really love is to combine different paper collections.

For this page I was also inspired by the October challenge Mood Board.

Please look at the sidebar for the current challenge from 13@rts.

Beautiful...


A closer look.





Here is a short description of my background.

I like to create with two strongly competing colors. 

In my case on the page the dark blue paper from the Sunrise paper collection and the 

light gray/ white Bella paper collection.

I torn the Sunrise paper and glued on the Bella paper, after that I added two layers

of clear Gesso.

My idea was that the dark side should get texture and the light side should stay flat.

So I added under the transparency a layer gel medium to one of the new stencils of 13@rts

and I covered the gel medium with two different embossing powders from WOW. 

I let the whole thing dry overnight. 

On the next day, I started with melting the embossing powder

and adding the first color layer. My color choice was burnt sienna chalk spray from 13@rts.

I added it with a plastic pipette, this is my favorite tool for adding spray color.

I applied the spray three times, always drying between the layers, for a wonderful result.

After that I added black gesso, stamp images, big black numbers and scribbeling.

Now my background was done and I started with glueing the transparency and my focale point.
