'Ocean Vibes' by Elisa Ablett - Mixed Media Scrapbooking

Hi Soul Sisters,

My turn up on the Art and Soul blog today with a mixed media layout featuring the awesome Prima St Tropez Collection and EmbellishmentsLindy's Stamp Gang sprays and Marabu Art Sprays available in store today.

This is a gorgeous paper collection full of rich blues, bronzes and wood grain plus all the embellishments to match including metal, stickers, tags and crystals.

I wanted to create an ocean themed background as well so I started out with a lovely rich blue Marabu Art Spray. I sprayed water onto my page first on the left and right hand side of my page then I spray the blue Marabu Art Spray and tilted my page to let the drips go to the middle.

Next step add a few sprays of the Gold Marabu Art Spray plus the copper and blue Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays over the top of your blue background plus add splatters to your page.

Next step spray a small amount of the gold Marabu Art Spray onto your craft mat and using the lid as a stamp, stamp small circles onto your layout. You can do the same with the blue spray as well.

Using an offcut of mixed media cardstock Spray the blue as a base colour then spray your copper and gold sprays over the top. This will give your paper a lovely metallic sheen.

Using a bubble diecut - Texture Bubbles Kaisercraft Die cut your bubbles from the metallic paper.

Using your Art C Texture Pebbles, spray them with your Gold and Copper Sprays and a touch of the blue spray. Let dry and then when time glue them to your page using gel medium or a glue that drys clear.

Add some more texture to your page by adding some Marabu Acyrl Mousse- Carribean using a palette knife and a stencil of your choice. 

Time to start adding some of your elements once your Mousse has dried on the page!

Glue your pebbles and thread onto your page, i used gel medium that dries clear.

Stick down your paper elements layering on top of each other including the bubble die cut.

A few last steps -

Stick down your layers starting with the paper strips, Acetate film strip, bubble die cut, then glue your coloured Art Stones and thread together ( you can use gel medium or a heavy glue that dries clear), your frames and then your photo. Add your finishing touches, metal charms, title and glitter crystals and you have finished!

Here are some close ups of the finer details...

Hope you have enjoyed seeing how my layout came together.
