Mixed media background with Vicki Boutin paints | American Crafts DT

Hi Ladies! I'm back today a colorful mixed media layout inspiration today. This time I decided to grab my beautiful Vicki Boutin acrylic paints and picked out some pretty blue and purple shades.
I mixed the acrylic paints with matte acrylic gel medium, this makes the paint smoother and a little bit transparent. I then grabbed a white cardstock from Vicki’s mixed media art paper pad and started to paint big splashes all over the paper.

I just loved the result and decided to add white dots here and there using modeling paste and Vicki Boutin stencils. Then, I cut a vase shape from white cardstock and backed it with patterned paper and vellum.  

I placed the vase to the center of the bottom and started to gather a big bouquet paper flower. I used the lovely Field Notes collection from Vicki Boutin, it has a lot of beautiful flower ephemera pieces, but I also fussy cut flowers from patterned paper and cut 3D flower with my Cameo. I arranged them into a bouquet and placed ephemera leaves among them.

I created the title mixing acrylic word sticker and cardstock sticker and added my journaling to the bottom.

This layout was so much fun to create, I hope I could inspire you to play with your mixed media stuff! Thank you for stopping by! Bea
