Art Studio: Cali!



Hello Friends! Leigh here, to share an Art Studio layout with the gorgeous Rio Kit!



One of the things I love most about Art Studio posts, is that it gives me a chance to try out some new techniques with mixed media. You can use any stencil or art screen to create this technique.



You can see the script on the white background card stock, that was created with a Heidi Swapp art screen and some texture paste. I love the subtle tone on tone effect it gave, and it almost looks like the paper came that way.





Next, you can layer on some papers from the kit. I chose to keep with an achromatic color scheme, which is all neutrals and no colors. There are plenty of black and white options in this month’s kit from the Cocoa Vanilla Studio B sides. Cut in strips, and bend them up after stitching on them.




You can layer different black and white papers, and the gold die cuts  from the kit  behind the photo to accent it.

Add your title and gold Color Shine and you’re done! Super quick page since the texture paste dries so fast!
