Anita Shares a Stunning Layout & a Tutorial!

Monday, December 16, 2013

Hi everyone! 
It's Anita here today to share a layout I made with the new 
December Mixed Media Paper Kit from Frosted Designs.
This kit is fabulous- I love it!!

 There are a lot of photos today, sorry!
Love, love , love the blues on the Christmas lines this year. 
I used a LOT of spray ink on this layout- the doily was pretty much
soaked with the Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine that is included in the kit. 

The package of die cuts in the kit is fabulous- I layered several of them here
next to my photo. For my background I used a stencil, Molding Paste, Gelatos® and glitter -
there is a tutorial below.

Here is a close-up of the background. I wrapped the beautiful sparkly tulle from the kit around
my paper for more dimension. The wooden stars were sprayed with the Perfect Pearls Forever Red
 from the kit.

For my title I painted chipboard first with acrylic, then I sprayed with the Perfect Pearls Forever Red
and the Gold Color Shine from the kit. It is a little hard to see the gold in the photo, but
it is pretty visible in person!

For the flowers, I sprayed them with the Gold Color Shine first, then spread Frosted Lace Stickles
from the kit around the edges of the petals.The chipboard snowflakes were covered 
with the Stickles and while wet I added the bling, also from the kit.

I used a gold paint pen on the edge of the paper that you see here. For the texture on top of the buttons,
I mixed gloss gel, glitter, and the beads from the kit and spread on top.
I added the Stickles in the corners of the papers.

I sprayed the tiniest, tiniest bit of Forever Red ink on the corner here.
Seriously, I held the paper like 2 feet from the sprayer and misted one time. 
I just wanted a little blush of color there.

For the background here are the steps:
I put a small amount of my Gelatos® on my paper and mixed with Molding Paste.
I spread this over my stencil and while the stencil was still in place…..

I sprinkled my glitter on and pressed it into the paste.

Ta-da!  This is a super easy technique and you will love how it looks.

For the texture on top of the buttons, I mixed Gloss Gel, the beads from the kit and
Diamond Dust Glitter together.

 Put a piece of scrap paper over your photo and spread the mixture all over. I put mine on
pretty heavy, but you can always put less. Put it aside to dry overnight. In the morning I
gave it a spritz with the Gold Color Shine included in the kit.

Are you still with me? 
Thank so much for stopping by today!


in addition to the December Mixed Media Paper Kit, I also used the following;
