It's Blog Hop time. Xyron is teaming up with Teresa Collins and CardMaker for a fun and creative blog hop. I am sharing a layout that I created using some wonderful Teresa Collins product. The name of the collection is "You Are My Happy." I love this collection. I decided to add a mixed media element to the design to compliment the patterned papers. I used my Creatopia Machine and 3/8 Adhesive Dots to create this layout. The collection is super fun to work with and perfect for girly layouts. I am including a tutorial below. Take a peek...:)
Creatopia Xyron Machine
Xyron 3/8 Adhesive Dots
Gelatos (Peach, Metallic Melon, Light Pink)
Step One: Apply Gesso to canvas paper using foam brush. Let dry.
Step Two: Lay Stencil over gesso’d canvas paper and apply molding paste to paper covering the entire canvas paper. Lift Stencil off and let dry. Note: Place stencil in water immediately after use and clean for future use. The molding paste dries quickly.
Step Three: Apply Gelatos to top of canvas paper and mist water. Continue applying gelatos and misting water until you have the desired color combo and look.
Step Four: Apply gelatos to edges of all layers of patterned paper and canvas paper. Rub the edges to blend.
Step Five: Run papers through Creatopia Machine to apply adhesive. The adhesive application will be edge to edge.
Step Six: Adhere canvas paper to patterned paper.
Step Seven: Adhere crocheted ribbon to the back of patterned paper strip and add to canvas layer.
Step Eight: Add matting to photo and adhere to layout.
Step Nine: Add pins to the layout using mounting tape as an anchor and adhere flowers using 3/8 Adhesive Dots. Note: I lightly applied some gesso to the pearls and pins, let them dry and then applied gelatos to them.
