Jot Magazine - 'Details' Mixed Media Gallery


Hey everyone

Today I am here to share a layout that can be seen in Issue 11 of Jot Magazine. You can click the cover below to read the magazine. 


Here is my layout which can be found in the Mixed Media Gallery

Layout title: Details


When it comes to mixed media I use a subtle but effective approach. I love the look of soft watercolours that compliment patterned papers and a white on white stencilled look. 

I decided to do a distress ink wash/watercolour look on the background. I used the limited edition monthly colour in Cracked Pistachio. Totally love that colour. 

To add another texture I grabbed my faithful Whipped Spackle and applied a smooth layer through a text Crafters Workshop stencil. I love the look that the whipped spackle gives, especially against a white background. 


This layout was all about my little ones first trip in the trolley together. Jack had not yet been in a trolley before and this particular supermarket has a double trolley which makes the whole shopping experience with kids double the fun right! ha. They had fun and Charlotte was loving having him so close. 


On the above pic you can see the subtle effect of the whipped spackle, it is just so devine. 


I adored the Happy Things Pink Fresh Studio collection, the papers and embellishments are just so unique and different to anything else on the market and I love that. This paper was just calling for a layout design such as this. The wood veneer add a fun embellishment too!

I added a pop of contrast with the black glittered word from the collection and also india ink splatters. I just love how perfect the splatters look with india ink and a big brush. 

I will be back very soon to share more layouts with you, I have been super productive!
