A Mixed Media Layout

Heyyyaaa Lovelyyy Crafter Friendssss!! <3
I know, I have changed the look of my blog...did you like it? I am totally happy with it!

Well, I was excited creating my mixed media layout the first time inspired by Mr.Jack Sparrow.
I knew it then, I had to make more of them! ;)

So, I came up with another layout. This time inspired by International Women's Day which was celebrated on 8th of March! I created a 12 *12 inches layout on canvas. I have used the blue hues in this Shabby Chic layout.

Sneak peeks of my layout before showing you the full image! ;)

Firstly, I layered the canvas with Loads of floral patterned papers from Paper Mania. I cut out the edges from a few areas and adhered a crochet lace which seeks out from the torn parts ;)

I primed these papers using Mod Podge Matte finish, White Acrylic  Color and White Fabric color. The layout was spritzed with water after all this was done so that the papers got really wet! I dried them and primed with another layer of Mod Podge. 

I adhered more patterned papers, laces and a corner wooden embellishment to the layout. I colored Prussian Blue acrylic color over the layout and let it dry. I brought Texture Paste(Ranger) recently and loving it totally!! This is the new technique that I am using and it's an amazing product.I have used Crafter's Workshop Stencils with Texture paste and let it dry overnight.

I used Bo Buuny Stamp set and Kaiser Craft Flutter Stamp Set along with Tim Holtz-Distress ink (Black Soot) over the layout.

I adhered buttons and flowers and arranged them. I layered them over with white pearl color and blue color to give them a glittery look. I added a few brads here and there and a few pearl embellishment. This gives your layout a girly look! :)

I printed out a few sentiments and cut them out. I added the sentiments to the layout and the beautiful picture over the space.

Here is the layout! I am dedicating this to the women all around the world who are proud of their women hood and want to celebrate it! Here is my post for the same. 

Tell me how do you find it?
