Good morning, Kasia here today with a layout featuring the Collage Gloss Varnish paper from the Scrap Studio collection.
I love using the gloss varnish specialty papers from different collections and this one was no exception. It’s like starting with a cardstock that has already been heat embossed with beautiful designs for you.
SCRAP STUDIO Collection: PS544 Collage Gloss Varnish, P2632 Authentic, P2636 Frayed, PP1055 6.5” Paper Pad.
Use COLLAGE Gloss Varnish as the background for your layout.
Using Denim, Blue Haze and Peacock ink and a sponge dauber, ink up a flowing section on your page and add some texture with the Lace Doily template.
Smoosh some of the ink from the ink pad onto the template packaging, spritz with water and squish down onto your page.
Spray a little of your mists onto the same packaging and squish onto your page in the same way to slowly build up colour and various layers. Use a paintbrush to help you move colour around and a fine mist of water if needed to get the colours moving.
Splatter the mists onto your page to give the background colour block a nice organic look with loads and loads of texture.
Stamp the doily and film strip image from the clear stamp set with the Smoke ink randomly around your page to add even more texture and depth.
Cut out all the fun elements from AUTHENTIC and ink the edges with the Denim ink.
Using all the pieces you have cut out and inked, create a nice full cluster to matt your photo.
Add little strips from the sticker sheet around the outside of the coloured area.
Foam adhere the matted photo cluster onto your page and tuck in some of the small elements and collectables to the cluster to make it lovely and full.
Cut out your favourite sentiment from FRAYED and adhere these to long strips of black cardstock then foam mount in place.
Ink the wooden flourishes with the Licorice ink and add to your layout.
Add a generous amount of black splatters to your layout and you are finished.
This is an absolute gorgeous collection and I hope I have inspired you to get your mixed media on and create some beautiful layouts.

“The Mountain Air collection bought all the memories of living in Colorado and my husband fishing in the rivers throughout the mountains right back, so I had to dig out an old photo of him in his favourite fishing spot.
A absolutely perfect collection for that part of our life” Kasia Leach – Design Team

Kavitha with you here today sharing a layout using gorgeous “Gypsy rose” collection
Though these colors are not the usual ones i use,i love the burgundy tones and of course the trademark beautiful florals from Kasiercraft.I love the boho chic feel to it.I made a layout mostly using the sticker sheet motifs (which we often forget,or too good to be used)and die cut collectables.
