Mixed Media Layout 'My Boys' with Sarah

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with a mixed media layout for you today using a number of fun ways to add to the background of your scrapbook layouts or memory keeping formats.
The background of this 12X12 inch layout was created with acrylic paints, printing with the 6 inch round gel plate and distress crayons. To create a watercolour affect, the crayons are applied to the background page and 'activated' with a wet paint brush. For this layout, I have allowed them to drip off the page for additional texture. I stamped onto the background using the Distress Crayon to colour the stamp. I used Darkroom Door, kaiser and Memorymaze background stamps.
The layout was finished off by some marks with my Posca Paint pens, and background script stamping (Kaiser) with black ink. The chicken wire chipbaord pieces are from Memorymaze and have been coated with Finnibair metallic wax paste. The shimmer this wax provides is awesome!
The chicken wire chipboard comes in a larger size, 12x12 and a 150mmx150mm piece as shown here. Black stencilling with acrylic paint was added for contrast. The layout was completed with a doodled border using a black fineliner. If you like this layout, I'd appreciate you leaving a comment below.
If you are interested in any of the Memory Maze products, be sure to contact your local craft store or Memory Maze for your local stockist where we can place our local sales reps in contact with them.
