Today, I have two monochromatic mixed media layouts to show you.
This summer, we went to Tofino, British Columbia, a beautiful beach. I decided to focus on the blue because it is the color of the sea and it makes a nice contrast with the color of the sand in my picture.
I glued two pieces from the Checker Bits set to my background and applied gesso all over. I then added color with Gelatos and various mists. I also stamped patterns with black ink on my chipboard.
I also used two pieces of the Ombre Dreams paper behind my photo.
"Wonderful Sweet" layout
To create this layout, I glued the Number Grid - Small to my background, and once again, I applied gesso all over. I also applied gesso to my square frame, which is part of the Graduated Squares set, and to the words, Wonderful, as well as Sweet, from the Arrow Words set. I set those aside.
Then, I added color to my background with Twinkling H2O watercolors, Gelatos and various mists. I also used stamps and black ink.
I added two different colors of mist to my frame.
The words were not altered, because I wanted them to stand out.
