Hello friends! Karla back today with a mixed media layout using some fun supplies from the Wild Whisper Shop! As well, we have an exciting New Monthly Challenge for you!! You can find the details below and link up on our Wild Whisper Community Facebook Page. A couple weeks ago I was playing around with Nicole Wright's Fanciful Blossoms Stencil and some Cosmic Expressions Shimmer Shakers powders. I created a background on an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of white cardstock by laying the stencil on top of the paper, sprinkling the powders over top, and then spraying with water. I then pressed a second piece of cardstock over top to get a negative impression (but that's for another day!). I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with it at the time, but when I was planning my layout for today's post I knew that would make the perfect addition to my page to document my youngest daughter's stay-home haircut!
I cut out a zigzag edge using my Cricut Maker and then used the Nature's Bliss and No Place Like Home papers to diecut my titles with a Cricut cutfile. I added stitiching with my sewing machine for some fun texture.
I added the house paper from the No Place Like Home paper pack and used various ephemera (listed below) to embellish my page. I grabbed some sequins from my stash for pops of colour. You can find lots of beautiful sequins in the Wild Whisper Shop!
I used the Circlet Stencil with some Honeydew Matt Chalk Polish for a soft effect on the background. I find circle elements always add such a cool effect, and they repeated with the sequins and ephemera circle!
We are so excited to let you know about our monthly challenges!! In the Wild Whisper Community Facebook Group you'll find the Challenge Post (under announcements) and all you have to do is link up your new project in the comments for a chance to win! You'll have until the end of the month to participate - we can't wait to see your submissions!! This week I'm challenging you to create a project using Wild Whisper stencils!! You can either pull out some mixed media and get a teeny bit messy with inks, sprays, polishes or more ;) or you can go clean and simple with some soft ink blending, tracing a stencil, or even using one to emboss!
