Paper Issues: April Mix It Up Monday




Hi Paper Pals!

Time to get your messy on with this month's edition of  


Yayyyyyyy!!! 

I love a lil mixed media fun and today's challenge is super awesome!
Simply use the salt resist technique with your favourite, inks, dyes and or, watercolours on your layout. 
Too easy, and boy oh boy, so much FUN!!!
But enough chatter, here's what I came up with.....

"Magic"


Isn't this stunning?! Just look at the salt resist pattern - so pretty!!!
The unicorn is part of the Spring Crop free cut files that you can grab in the Paper Issues store here.
I really love the free cutfiles and seriously, unicorns!?!! What more can I say. Love it!
You'll spy mixed veneers and stickers from my stash, a few odds and ends from TYPO, Thickers from Amy Tangerine, and Shimelle's Little By Little collection. 
Here's a closer look at that stunning mixed media work.....

It's so striking! 
I used purple, magenta, pink and red inks, lots of water and rock salt. 
The trick is to get the inks 'puddling' and then add the rock salt to dry it all up. Be sure everything is dried out before removing the salt. 
So much fun!!!


Magic, indeed!


OMG! How fun are all the photo filters / snap chat looks that you can play with? 
This rainbow unicorn one of my daughter is her favourite!  
(We may have hundreds of shots of her as a unicorn, lol!)
It adds to the playfulness of this design, and is just a perfect match with that cut file too!


All the papers in my photo cluster are Shimelle's Little By Little. This range is so vibrant, and whimsical and was the perfect choice for this magical layout! 
La la love this!
