Tim Holtz Multi-Media Layout

Core’dinations Cardstock is such a great weight to use with different mediums!  Today I am sharing a tutorial for the simple and pretty multi-media layout I made with lots of Tim Holtz Kraft-Core Nostalgic Collection.
Other Supplies:
The Crafter’s Workshop Mini Cloud & Poppies Stencils
Ranger Tim Holtz Adirondack Snow Cap Mixative
Dick Blick Modeling Paste
To create this 12×12 layout:
1).  Sand & dust 1/2″ border around the 12×12 Kraft-Core No. 15 background
2).   Cut, sand (especially distressing the edges) & then dust with Dust Buddu:
     a) Two 10″ x 2″ and one 10″ x 1.5″ pieces of Kraft Core No. 6.
     b) One 10″ x 2″ and one 10″ x 1.5″ pieces of Kraft Core No. 2.

3) Flip to the backside one of the 10″ x 2″ pieces of No. 6 cut in Step 2.  Using a cloud stencil, outline the clouds using a score tool from the back.  Sand and dust the clouds embossed on the front side.

Core Tip: When embossing cardstock using a stencil and score tool, use a rubber mat underneath the stencil.  This allows you to get a deep scored image without ripping the cardstock and always score from the back so the raised image is on the front.

4) Using a paint brush, paint in the clouds with a white wet medium.  I used Ranger’s Snow Cap Mixative because I liked that looked like different densities in the clouds.

5) To create the “be true” part of the title, use a stencil with acrylic modeling paste to the left side of the 2nd piece of 10″ x 2″ piece of No. 6.  Apply evenly with a popsicle stick.  When removing stencil, be sure to lift the stencil up straight so you don’t smudge the title work.
6) “To you” is added to the 10″ x 1.5″ piece of No. 6 after the cardstock has been adhered to the background using the same technique and placement in Step 5.
7) Alternating the colors, add the cut & embellished pieces of cardstock to the background in a slightly angled manner.
8) Mat three wallet-size photos with Kraft-Core No. 15.  Making sure to sand and dust the edges before adhereing the photos.
8) Finish off by adding lots of Darice Sequins with a dollop of Liquid Pearl in the middle.
Multi-media layouts do not need to be complicated.  Just by using a couple of wet mediums to Core’dinations Cardstock, you can create fun titlework and painted embellishments! ~Kate

    THANK YOU for sharing your mixed media tips & CREATIVE INSPIRATION Kate – I look forward to trying them all => added to my “techniques-to-try” list :)
    I confess that I still use a Fiskars tool to hand emboss with their templates, now I am going to try it with a rubber mat underneath!!!
