Pink Paislee | Mixed Media

Hi everyone, welcome! This week on the Pink Paislee blog we are sharing mixed media projects! To start you off, I'm sharing how my mixed media layout came to life.

First, I started by cutting out this bird background with my Silhouette Cameo (cut file by Paige Evans for Studio Calico). Next, I used a combination of my favorite watercolor confections tropical paints  and watercolor confections the classics paints from Prima and painted some of the background birds. I purposefully left several of them white to allow for white balance.

Next, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut some birds out of different patterned papers from the Fancy Free collection. I adhered them to my cut file background and set aside. Next, I painted a watercolor background on white cardstock. Once my background was dry, I adhered the bird cut file background.

To embellish my layout, I started by adding droplets of white paint against my background then I added my photo and embellishments from the Fancy Free collection.
