tree hug | mixed media

hi everyone, welcome back to a new layout…

i found a, new to me, manufacture/designer called MINTAYpapers and i saw the booth at the creativeworld in frankfurt. i really love some of the designs, the patterns and the fact that you can buy a 6×8 paper pad just for fussy cutting…. what?!


I did a lot of fussy cutting, as you see on that layout. but there are so many papers were you can cut out the pretty things! i used „wilderness“, „life stories“ and the 6×8 paper pad today. I also used some new Lindy´s products, some super heavy chunky embossing powders….


i heat embossed the wreath with „Silence is golden“ but tried the „Tin Roof, Rusted!“ first, both are inlcuded in the Metal Maniacs set! LOOOOOVE them!


I added some texture with some heavy gesso and a stencil, i also primed some of the background paper with gesso, just because i knew i wanted to add some mixed media (My Mojito Green and Down the Rabbit Hole) to it. the mintay papers are in a very good quality, but water always makes the paper buckle. and we all know, gesso helps a lot to mix and blend the colors…


my final touches were the little short title and some enamel dots! i call it a layout! and i love it… what about you?
I am always happy when i found some new products and the fact that i can buy them here in germany… it´s not always that easy.


you´ll find a process video up on my youtube channel, right here

thanks for stopping by today
