Last Saturday, I taught my first mixed-media scrapbooking class of 2015. It's one I've been planning and waiting for since discovering the new Prima lines: Finnabair's Art Basics and the Color Bloom Sprays. Sharing all these lovely supplies and the things they can do with my scrappy, mixed-media friends was the best way to spend a Saturday morning.
Last week, I shared a pic of this layout on my blog. You read all about it and see a few more close-ups here.
Today, I'm sharing the second layout I made for class. We used the Art Basics Modeling Paste, Heavy Gesso, Clear Gesso, 3D Matte Gel and the Color Bloom Sprays to make this layout.
We also added two coats of Art Basics Heavy Gesso on top of the burlap Thickers to keep the Prima sprays from soaking in. Here are you can see how beautifully the Color Bloom Sprays blend together. They are so wonderful to use. The spray mechanism on the bottles is user-friendly and low-mess perfect for those of you who don't like inky fingers.
I frequently use white watercolor paper for my mixed media layouts but for this one we used a wonderful pattern paper. Here you can see the pattern on the paper through all the mixed media layers. That's one of the benefits of clear gesso instead of white opaque gesso.
Thanks for stopping by!
