October Inspiration with Novita Ferris


Hello everyone,

Novita here with you today and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. 

Today I am up on the Scrapmatts blog and I have a new layout to share with you. 

Here is my mixed media layout...............


I created a mixed media background using  some texture paste with Scrapmatts stencil and once this background dried I've added some stamps here and there and then I splatters ink paints randomly.

Here are some close up photos....

Some chipboards I inked with Jet Black and Brown Archival Ink pad and also heat embossed with the Aged Bronze Embossing Enamel powder. 

While they were drying I started embellishing my layout until I was happy with the finished page. For finall touch I added some Henna Mica Flake and made some splatter with white gesso that I mixed with water. 

Well thats all from me today....
I hope you like what I made and will feel motivated to get creative.

The Magic of Oz

Welcome to the month were some of us like to celebrate all things Halloween!!

To create the layers, I have fussy cut up one of the sheets and placed over the base sheet.

 I have chosen to leave the Doorway frame, bubbles and string circles raw but I have coloured the micro chips with Archival Black Ink.
I have used the little film frames to showcase the faces.
I used these as reference to the Wizard of Oz being a movie.

To create this layout I have used the following chipboard
