The StencilGirl team is excited to be hopping with Craft Hoarders Anonymous this week! Craft Hoarders Anonymous is a fun challenge blog that gets you to use your stash and create outside of your normal routine. This week, we were challenged to create with all things “messy” so I decided to make a mixed media scrapbook page:
Show us your inner mixed media diva! Use spray mists, inks, paints, modeling paste, embossing powder, pastels, chalk, and whatever messy media you can find! Let's dig into that hoard, pull out some of that “messy stuff,” and use it up! There is a mess-maker hiding in all of you! Let her/him out to play!
Since I am trying to get more scrap booking done, I did a scrapbook page for this challenge. Over the years, I have amassed QUITE the collection of card stock; and inking, painting, etc is one way to dress up that card stock to use for a layout. I am sure many of you are in the same boat as me. I am also incredibly tired of putting away patterned paper scraps. BORING! So when I read this challenge from Craft Hoarders Anonymous, I knew it was right up my alley!
For this layout I used ONE single piece of paper and the rest is all ink, paint, embossing, and sprays through StencilGirl Stencils. Here's how to make a mixed media scrapbook page with stencils and messy media:
It started with jewelry, beading, sewing, home decor, painting, basket weaving, pottery, and cross-stitch. Marry that to an entrepreneurial spirit & at 9 years old a girl is selling her wares at craft fairs as far as her parents and grandparents would drive her. These days, Jennifer enjoys crafts of all genres from sewing to scrapbooking to jewelry with a little dabbling in the mixed media world. Her style is approachable and she wants everyone who sees her work to feel that they too can embrace creativity and make their home and life beautiful.
