Paste and Splotches


Hello there again!  I’ve got a layered process for you to try!

 It’s simple and I’ll show you 😉

I chose a pattern paper that would contrast nicely with the his face. Then I mixed some light molding paste and these three acrylic paints to match the tealish color from the photo. I eyeballed it and ended up adding more green than I expected.

I then splotched, in no particular way, on a 12 x 12 paper.  While they both were drying, I assembled the rest of the papers. and die cuts.

I used the instax looking page from the kit and cut out some rectangle pattern pieces and frames.  Then I cut from the molding paste paper, the same type of shape and attached all of those to the heart acetate from Bella Blvd.

I couldn’t wait to use this mirrored camera from Colorcast Designs. I found that adding the acetate on top of the splotches made it a nice subtle effect instead of harsh.

And that molding paste was the perfect shade of tealish and added some texture to the project.

Thanks for joining me today for this fun, quick layout!
