By: Smitha Katti for Fiskars

Creating amazing mixed media art is easier than you think.  With this Super Smash Book Layout, you can embellish your journal with simple scraps and odds and ends and create a layout that's eye-catching and inspirational.  Use water colors to give your page added color and dimension.

Instructions:

  1. The best way to make a mixed media project is to journal a story from your heart.  There is no right way or wrong way to do this, it’s all about enjoying the process.
     
  2. For my pages, I started by gluing down some thin strips of patterned papers onto my pages. The ProCision Rotary Bypass Trimmer cuts thin strips of patterned paper very nicely. I then added a white tag and some die cut vellum strips. I just wanted to add some different colors and textures to form the base of my page.

  3. Next, I brought in pink and aqua colors by using watercolors. I used a mask and spray just on the bottom left corner to form a flower pattern. I then layered some cream paint on top of everything. For the cream paint, I used a very dry brush, added just a little paint to the tip of the brush and painted on the page. This will make sure that the colors beneath don’t turn murky.

  4. For the next layers, I used some of the new Maya Road fabric tapes. These tapes glue down nicely and the white ones can be painted over easily. I frilled them up a bit before I adhered them down. I also added a big wide pink ribbon, a butterfly and some more pops of colors.

  5. Now here comes the fun part: the journaling. Writing down the story is the best part of this project. Use your handwriting or type your journaling - either way works! Add some doodling with the same pen to tie in the colors.

  6. I finished off the page by adding some ribbons, stickers and scattered sequins.
