Mixed Media Layouts with Joyful Day | Missy Whidden

Mixed Media Layouts with Joyful Day | Missy Whidden

11 Apr 2019 0 Comments
Hello again, friends!  Missy here with a few new layouts featuring the Joyful Day collection and the Liquid Watercolors.  I love the bright and fun colors in this line!  For my first layout, I was inspired by the Perfect Moment paper and all those fun frames.  I fussy cut them out and arranged them in a layered design under a torn piece of the Big Ideas paper.  I scrapped two fun photos of me and my daughter using a funny Snapchat filter, and that pretty periwinkle blue color is a great contrast for them.

I love how these frames look layered on top of each other.  I embellished around my photos using stickers, puffy stickers and a cute fabric banner.  I also added a few more pops of color with some tangled thread.

Before I began embellishing, I coated my background cardstock with white gesso.  I even went over some of the frames and a little bit at the top on the blue paper.  I used the Liquid Watercolors to create a pretty watercolor effect down on the bottom half of the page.  I used lots of blues and pinks, and I also added some gold ink splatters.  I used some of the puffy word stickers and alphas for my title.  Here you can also see where I added more stickers and mixed embellishments.

Do you ever add mixed media to your layouts?  I really love creating my own backgrounds, and the Liquid Watercolors are so fun to play with. 

I created a small cluster beneath the title using another fussy cut frame, and a few bows. 

I used a few of the chipboard frames as dimensional layers behind my photos.  I finished off the embellishing with more stickers, die cuts, puffy stickers and enamel dots...all from the Joyful Day collection.

One last close-up of the cute fabric banner!

For my second layout, I decided to go floral.  I used a few of the patterned papers to back the flowers of this pretty cut file.  Again, I used mixed media on a white cardstock background.  I began with gesso and then used the Liquid Watercolors to create a big wash of light blue.  I splattered in a few other colors, but I wanted to mainly have a lot of blue behind the flowers.

I love backing cut files!  It does take a bit of time, but it's always worth the awesome results.  I used a few circle punches with the patterned papers to create centers for the flowers.  I roughed up the edges using an edge distresser and then added adhesive foam behind the cut file and the circles.

Again, I mixed and matched my title using more of the puffy word stickers and puffy alphas.  I also added in a cute floral puffy sticker and leaf stem.

I love overlapping pieces on top of my photo when the photo allows, and this photo was perfect to tuck under right here.  I also overlapped the title a bit on to of the photo.

I added more florals to the left of the photo with a chipboard sticker, a few die cuts and a puffy sticker.  I wanted all the main colors of the layout to be in that cluster.

Here's one more look at all the pretty flowers & papers!

I hope these pages inspire you in some way.  This collection is just darling, and I had a blast creating with it.  Thank you so much for stopping by, and have a wonderful day!
