Hi everyone, welcome to the Pink Paislee blog!¬†This week 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 paints 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.

I love how bright and colorful this layout turned out. If you have a layout that you would like to share with us, using our current collections, feel free to post them on our Facebook page, or on Instagram using the hashtag #pinkpaislee or #ppFancyFree!
