now & then

 Good morning and a happy Monday to you all ☺
Today I'm sharing one of my pages that I've created with my March kit from The Scrapbook Store.  I'm working with the Now & Then - Izzy collection by My Minds Eye.  This is one of those fun and versatile collections, suitable for all types of scrapping.
Here is my first page!

Project: March DT Kit - MME - The Scrapbook Store
Title: Now & Then
I've gone with a mixed media background - lately I've been playing around with textures, stencils, gelatos and mists - all very fun to combine.  I also happened to use some packaging from MME which in turn became my title ☺
Here are some close-up's:

 For the textured pattern - I've used the Texture Mesh stencil from Memory Box!  I have found that when doing mixed media it's best to let each layer dry naturally, rather than speed dry.  I tend to have a mixed media project on the side, so I can keep going back to it and take my time.  I've built up the layers with paint, ink, mist, gelatos and stamps.  For some extra details, I've also used a black pen with the same stencil.

 Here is that lovely piece of packaging!!  I covered some of the printed words with sticker letters by MME - I've also used a flair pin from this same collection.
This collection has some really cool 3x4 journalling cards, great for Project Life.  For this page, I've layered a couple under my photo as seen above!
Here is my journal work with my typewriter. 

Products used:
Flair Pins - MME
Sticker letters - MME
Ephemera Pack - MME
ink
script stamp - Prima
stitched circle stamp - Prima
mist
paint
modelling paste
cotton thread
black pen

I will have another couple of pages to share using this great collection - MME is always fabulous.  Please check in the store to view more from this collection ☺
Thanks for coming by ♥

Beautiful! I'm just a beginner with mixed media and I've still a lot to learn. I've experimented with gesso and stencils but not gelatos yet. I have to agree that when I speed dry things tend to go wrong!
Thanks for sharing this gorgeous layout.
